Unexpected Hiatus

Hi friends. ALBTALBS has been basically inactive since early October … and hopefully that changes soon, but no promises.

It’s entirely my fault, so my apologies to the ALBTALBS review team that had reviews set, to people with expected posts, and to anyone who expects new content. [The last one is me poking fun at myself because I don’t think there is anyway, but you know, hope springs eternal?]

If you play along with me on social media you may have noticed I’ve been a lot less active there as well. [It might not seem that way, but I truly have been.]

I also haven’t been reading, or basically functioning.

What with work, and constant migraines, and just all the things, I’ve also played countless rounds of the fun game “where is this blood coming from?” [Spoilers: it was always me, and it was never fun.]

Just … wanted to have a placeholder and kind of let people know what was going on. And hopefully have things figured out soon with more regular content, and possible [back]dated posts.

Thanks, all, and much love for hanging in there with me. <3 <3 <3

Reading Like Mad

Trying to meet a “deadline.”

I’ve been reading more than I have in quite some time, which is lovely. I’ve read a few books by Christine Bell that I’ve enjoyed – and many others I :X can’t remember at the moment.

This is just a quick update – with more substance to follow when I don’t have the “eek panic rush” thing.

But I wanted to know – what are you reading? And what books would you recommend?

Emergency Temporary Hiatus

… Potentially.

 

Hello darlings.

So … you’ll obviously have noticed I … have not been on the ball. At all this year. (And before, but really this year.)

A lot has changed, but … well recently, it has been A LOT a lot.

Like … verge of breakdown a lot.

Added to internet problems, some dickbag constantly trying to hack this site, and just OH MY GOD real life … [I mean, I thought I was over the internet things. You can imagine I practically had an aneurysm this time around – and it’s still not fixed. And you can tell my level of “oh shit” based on the fact that I’m fixating on the most minor issue because I just cannot handle the other ones.]

I wanted to let you know, I might be on hiatus. I’m still going to try to post as I should. Especially since it’s APAHM and I’ve been planning this for over a fucking year. (No shit I started planning the Heritage Month celebrations in December of 2012. At least. So fuck me.)

But … I just wanted to let you know. I’ve kinda been alluding to this in the past, but this is like… critical mass.

So there’s that. I do want to say – thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU for sticking with me. Especially my blabby posts – I do plan on replying to each and every comment. (And I love the comments. I heart you all so much. I keep this site for you.)

[Oh – and of course I’ll be gone next week. Who knows about internet there.  BUT! Let’s say >.> that perhaps I get to have lunch with Nalini Singh and/or Laura Florand. … What questions would you like them to answer?] There. I need to offer something for you to keep me around, right? 🙂

A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet Turned Three

This happened last month. I had this whole blogiversary bash planned out. But … do you guys remember last year? When I was trying to figure out a blogiversary prize? And then I joked that I was going to give everything to me?

Well… I kinda did that this year. :X

Let me explain.

I slacked off. Shamefully. I really stressed about it, and stayed up until 3AM or later on some nights, bu then I was like … you know what? This should be fun. And I do deserve a present. >.> This year has been … well, usual. From a death in the family the first week, to more deaths and drama and stress, and … just you know, it’s ok, and not ok. And that’s just how it is.

Then nearly every time I try to do something Firefox is just a bitch. I know it’s my fault, for having like a trillian windows open >.> But you have no idea how irritating it is to constantly deal with the spinning rainbow wheel of doom.

And damn. I didn’t want this to be an all whiny bitchy post. But to explain. I feel like I should say sorry, but I also can’t because I’m not sorry. I mean, I’m sorry for letting people down, for dropping the ball, but I’m not sorry I did it. (So wouldn’t that make this one of those hated “I’m sorry you got hurt” apologies?)

I WILL post everything, and back date, and do what I was supposed to, and starting now keep on schedule to the best of my abilities. I wanted to explain, and also to say THANK YOU for sticking with me, for being the strong, and for allowing me to give myself the gift of doing “nothing.”

I also want to blog about what I’ve been reading more – ME. And I welcome all of you to join me. <3 Then hopefully you like the new things I have planned in 2014.

Hugs and kisses!
