Queen of the Editing Prom

I am alive.

But I won't be blogging for real any time soon. I am "buried" under a pile of work, except it's all via e-mail, so there's nothing really to bury me. I am buried under the weight of the expectations of others, how's that?


I'm currently juggling five jobs, plus one maybe-job (I don't really want it, I think the client is a wackadoo, but it would be an interesting challenge), and I'm such a tease, I make every client believe that she's my one and only. But (shh!) it's a lie — I'm the editrix version of Runaround Sue.

I'm also "entertaining" "houseguests" this week (they are old, old friends, practically family, who are crashing at my house for a few days; I will give them each a towel and a house key — that's entertaining enough, right?). Fortunately I dusted during a work break, and the house will be chore-fresh on Saturday, the day they arrive, so I'm not stressing about anything. It will be so fun to see them!

All will be well. But heaven only knows when I'll have the time and mental liveliness to blog again. Or to think about weight loss. Or to contemplate anything other than subject-verb agreement and D head format.

Bedtime! My brain already went to sleep an hour ago.

  2. Perhaps your "house guests" can be guest bloggers, too.

    1. Guest bloggers, woo-hoo! I am taking that to the BANK!!!

      (It should be noted that my "house guest," aka CPAMichael, now says that instead of guest-blogging, he and the Boy will do some of my editing work for me, freeing me to blog. Sounds like a flaw-free plan to me! He does know how to diagram a sentence, as he informed me within an hour of his arrival. It's all wacky highjinx 24-7 here at Chez Chardonnay.)

    2. Jen has been nothing but delightful. The rest of the family has been great. Of course, they will soon figure out that I abandoned my son with them. hahahahaha
