Sorry I've been so quiet on the blog, but I've had an exhausting week. In addition to it being our busy season, I had two columns and an article due this week as well as a writer's conference (held today) where I was giving two workshops (which, of course, required all sorts of preparation - remind me to start preparing earlier next time). I was up past midnight last night getting ready for this conference, and up at 5 am this morning to continue my preparations, then was gone from 7:15 am til 6 pm at the conference and then errands. And tomorrow I have commitments which will keep me on the run morning and evening. Phew!
I have many lovely emails but frankly I'm too pooped to reply to them at the moment, so I'll just offer an apology here and promise to get to the emails when I can.
