I'm not dead, I swear. I may be crazy. Right now, I'm desperately trying to find some balance in my life. Right after Thanksgiving, I started graduate school as a full-time student. A week after that, I started a new full-time job. (It seems I also thought it would be a grand idea to catch an extremely nasty cold on the same day.) Of course, Christmas was the following week. And now we're in week three. I'm trying to manage work, school, friends, hobbies, language lessons, etc... None of it is balanced right now and it's really challenging. Right now, I go to work for a full day, my husband cooks all the meals, I spend time with him and with friends, I get some relaxation in, think about writing or reading, then go to bed. I'm still adjusting, particularly since I've been a full-time student with an incredibly flexible schedule for a couple of years now and it's been a long while since my last rigidly scheduled job. (My last few jobs have been really flexible.) It feels really overwhelming right now, as there doesn't ever seem to be enough time to do everything that needs to be done. So, the long and short of it is this... I'll be posting when I have great recipes (and some time) but there will be probably continue to be long gaps in between. Subscribing via RSS is the best way to stay updated, by the way. I hope to go back to a sane schedule once I adjust. Whenever that may be.
