Life, Interrupted

Sorry for the blog silence!

All by May 1, I was supposed to move out of one apartment and into a house; finish my revisions and turn them in; and complete a bunch of projects at my day job that are extremely intensive.

April has been a stressful month but I was on track to finish it all.  Then, last Friday, my dog swallowed a treat and spent until yesterday in doggy hospital with a failing liver and blocked esophagus.  It was a bit of a nightmare.  He still may not recover but at least now he's sitting here beside me as I type, sleeping.

I still have to move, I still have to finish those revisions (though luckily my wonderful editor at Simon Pulse gave me some extra days...animal lovers unite!), and I still have to go get ready to go to work.

Oh, and I turn 33 on Saturday.  Not ready for that either.

But life goes on.  That's the reality of being a writer...of being a human being, I suppose. Life happens, and we just do our best to keep up.

I'll be back on the blog after all this current craziness is over.  In the meantime, enjoy a picture of Maxx before he swallowed a stupid treat whole.


  1. What a cutie! Yeah, it's funny (not!) how life can come at you sometimes. Good luck with juggling it all :)

  2. Oh my goodness! I hope your little guy is okay and able to recover. Take your time, we'll be here when you get back. :)


  3. I'm so sorry about your cute little guy. I will keep him in my prayers.

    And happy birthday. 33 ain't so bad. Wait until you hit the big 4-O-M-G, which I did this year. Okay, it's still not that bad but it did cause me a moment of pause. Just a small moment, but noticeable nonetheless.

    Good luck on the edits and the move. And try not to get too stressed out!

  4. Sherrie: Thanks. Luckily, it's all starting to slow down a little. For now.

    Tara: He's finally on the mend. Thank your for the well wishes. It's sad when your live revolves around whether your dog poops or not.

    Eric: Forty doesn't scare me. My 20's were the worst for me. Since I hit 30, my life has been so much better. I actually can't wait to see what 40 brings me. Happy belated birthday to you!


Keep it clean, keep it classy, and jokes are always appreciated.
