Upcoming Blogfest

Short post is short. I just wanted to give anyone who hasn't seen it yet a head's up about Karen's Blog BBQ. I participated last year and it was a blast checking out various blogs and figuring out what food I wanted to "bring" to the party (yes it's a virtual BBQ). She has the details in her blog post I linked, but pretty much it starts Friday and it's not to involved.

News: "I'm a riddle in nine syllables" +1

I know, my poor blog has been neglected as of late. I've had a lot going on and not much energy in which to do it. But I have good news to share. I'm pregnant, I'm expecting my first child in February of next year. I just started my second trimester earlier this month. I've gotten through the worst of the nausea and my energy level is starting to return.

I am planning on easing back into blogging soon. I miss reading other blogs and taking the time to write out posts for mine. I'm guessing blogging should be a little easier to do once I'm back on regular hours at work. This is the last week of summer hours, which means working longer Monday through Thursday to have a half day on Friday. I'll miss the half days but I'm looking forward to being done at 4pm again the rest of the week.

I am also thinking about posting the occasional piece of flash fiction. I figure writing time will be scarce once baby is here, and this will be a good time to exercise the ol writing muscles now with some short sprints. I can leave the more complex novel revision preparation for some time later.

And yes, the title of my post is from Sylvia Plath's "Metaphors" poem.
