Hi! I’ve missed you! How are you doing? You look great – have you lost weight? I love what you’re wearing, and your hair looks fabulous!
OK, so is anyone still here?
I’m sorry about the super-prolonged radio silence. Can I blame everything on work? I got sucked into 2 giant projects with deadlines (aka “summer killers”). We were launching a new service within my group (grant editing!), and our first client turned out to be one of the Top Dogs at Mayo. Ha ha ha… Gulp. (Do the physicians who look after the Dalai Lama ever get nervous?) In any case, I ended up working nights and weekends for most of the summer to make sure the grant applications were crystal clear and beautifully written. If we did it right, it means millions of dollars in extramural funding. If we didn’t do it right, ah well, there’s always the next funding cycle…
But all that work meant zero time for fun hobby stuff. I had (still have) nothing to show, and while I imagined I would write up the odd little bits here and there about topics that amused me, the months obviously rolled by without a peep from me.
Now, no more excuses! I’ve got some projects on the needles, the sewing machines are out, and my spinning wheel is at my elbow. I’m ready! What are you up to?!
