Hello, dear friends,
I’m just writing to let you know that things will probably be a little quiet around here for the remainder of the Advent season.
I would love to say it’s because I’m in the midst of some deeply spiritual practices and things, but honestly it has more to do with practical limitations and a busy schedule. My Mom hasn’t been able to watch Lydia the last couple of weeks, which hasn’t allowed me much time to reflect and write. I’m hosting a few Christmas gatherings with friends. Things like that.
This last week I had to spend an entire day just Being Sad about the absence of a second child in our family. Being Sad is exhausting, you guys. I could hardly do anything else all day.
Then on Wednesday my blog imploded. I dunno, it had something to do with a theme failure and an encounter with the White Screen of Death. I spent most of today (Thursday) talking to tech support people, trying frantically to explain what was wrong. I was doing the writerly equivalent of making wild hand gestures until someone made sense of what I was saying and went in and fixed it. Thank God for computer nerds. (And I mean that as a genuine compliment to people who are good with computers.)
Now I really, really don’t want to look at another computer screen for the rest of the week.
But life with my family is lovely, and I have wonderful friends and am in good health. I just need to take a little break from the Internet for a space.
You’re probably busy with holiday festivities as well, anyway.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
