Catching Up

Admit it, you thought I died, didn't you?

Well, I didn't, but it sure felt like it sometimes.

In the movie Coal Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn (played brilliantly by Sissy Spacek) has a line that perfectly sums up everything:
"I'm not runnin' my life; it's a-runnin' me."
I don't mind so much when life's busy with useful stuff, like shopping or dinner out with friends or blogging, but when it's all about work and home and family obligations, it gets to be a bit tiresome. The obligations, not the family. I love them.

But I'm back now. Mostly. I just got another project handed to me at work, I have a short story due for one of my writing lists, and I'm going to Chicago for a week this month. And don't even get me started on the sad state of my house.

Life is very real sometimes, isn't it?

Good thing I've got a new pair of Avias.
