Tag Archives: Life Kicked My Ass


Hi friends. You may have noticed (OR MAYBE NOT. WHO KNOWS.) I missed most of this week – my apologies. I wanted to title this post “I just can’t” … which ties into a lot of things. Also can’t go on hiatus now …

HOWEVER. Whatever real life, nobody cares about you!

This tweet made me laugh though – I don’t even know why exactly I find it so funny, but I do. And Iove it. Also theWolf Conservation Center is a wonderful organization, and yes I’ve been lucky enough to visit it. (Thanks Laura!)

What Had Happened Was…

If you’re around a certain type of person, you hear that a lot. It becomes something of a joke … and I mean it here. A bit tongue in cheek, but also to explain. You may (or may not have noticed) that I kinda dropped off the face of the earth when it comes to ALBTALBS and my email. I’m on Twitter and Facebook a lot less, and there was a period I was gone for over a week. (Just saying that because only one person noticed, which is fine, but my point is I’m trying to explain, so I can’t assume people know things. I get there is a lot out there, and nobody gives a shit about keeping up with me and my life. Which I 100% get and am okay with. We all have our stuff, and lives.)

So … it’s been a lot. Deaths, family tragedy, an accident, serious health issues [hello surprise internal bleeding being just one thing of many…], work stuff, bad work stuff … lots of not work related court things … and Firefox constantly buggy enough for me to consider poking my eyes out. … Basically, I’ve had a rough time of it. It actually hasn’t been as bad as last year … but honestly I’d only wish my past month+ on someone I truly hated.

I am sorry and do feel badly about dropping the ball. Believe me – I feel guilty. I still feel guilty about not reading and reviewing ARC(s) I agreed to from 2007. My plan is to fill in posts – backdate especially since I was absent for pretty much all of Smithsonian Hispanic Heritage Month …. so if anyone is willing to write posts for it still … I’d love to have you.

For better or for worse I did renew the domain for at least another year, so we’ll just trudge along, shall we? There’s still hope for me yet, right? >.> Maybe? :X
