I've kind of been falling behind on my blogging lately. Of course, I've kind of been falling behind on everything lately, slowly and bit by bit. I've been doing a good job at it actually. I am behind enough that it is almost a problem, and then I catch back up in that area, while inevitably ignoring another aspect of my life. Then I catch it up, while something else slips a little. And so forth.
It's like a slow juggling routine where I am regularly dropping the balls but then scooping them back up before they roll completely out of reach. :) I got in trouble with my boss, because I missed an actual deadline with a funder. Whoops. Then she took back some of my work. I had been quite busy with helping the girls with school stuff, and also with my demanding new client. And then taxes at the last minute! Got them done. Yay!! I am sad to say though, and quite chagrined, that I completely missed the lunar eclipse. I was awake during the entire thing - hard at work on the taxes due later that day. I just didn't think to go outside. So much for being part of a nature-loving spiritual tradition. I guess that's just not me.:) Nature is so complicated, and there are so many phases of the moon, and growing seasons, and so forth. I don't know how the pagans did it. I guess they weren't trying to keep their blogs updated as well. I've also been subbing yoga classes every single day. And we managed to work in a visit to the Los Angeles Festival of Books last weekend - which is always awesome - and was super amazing this year because we took our daughters and their friends and had a great meet-and-greet with Sandra Cisneros! I got some great quotes from her, that I'll try to get up here.
