I had an amazing birthday celebration this past weekend. I had lemon cake with lemon frosting. My older sis bought me a vintage Gonzo beanbag doll from 1981 that used to be my favorite toy as a child. Younger sis got me coffee-flavored chocolates. Mom did more than I can put down here without embarrassing her. Brother dropped in for a surprise visit. My bro-in-law grilled out. Thursday I'm planning on finally going to see Hunger Games in the theater with both sisters. My family is full of so much win that I can't describe it.
Monday (my real birthday) brought me a job opportunity. And only an hour to fill out and turn in the application. Older sister used her magical skills to keep me from panic-scribbling all over it and I got it in on time - and decipherable. Interviews are later this month and next. Wish me luck!
Tuesday I discovered Strange Chemistry's Open Door 2012. They're accepting submissions of sci-fi and fantasy YA until the end of the month. So, as soon as I get off this blog I'll probably get on that. If you write sci-fi/fantasy YA, you should give it a look.
I have another deadline for the end of the month, and I'm still putting out freelance feelers. So, if I get scarce on this blog (which I likely will) and stop doing blog hops for awhile, this is why. I love this blog, but I don't want to feel obligated to it to the point that I ignore greater responsibilities.
The blog is taking a backseat, and my blogroll is going to have to wait. I'm on the verge of breaking into something - whether it's the new job or something bigger - and I'll let you all know when I do. I appreciate all your support and I thank you ahead of time for any comments you leave. I really do love when you leave them!
So, stay tuned for sporadic postings, and really really good news.
