Here is a general update for all three of you (my new daily "readership" per blog explosion)..
The Ask Dr. Ellie blog that I have been working on is finally showing some Page Rank - Thank goodness! As much as I know these things take time, I was starting to wonder. The appearance of that nice little green bar let me to check the other PRs of my sites and of course I was dissappointed. The sandbox has started to suck the PR out as it does and no wonder - I have not been working diligently as I should have on such matters.
Which of course leads me to our pending move to lovely Charlotte NC/Fort Mill-Lancaster SC. I am still not sure how to explain the fact that I will reside in SC, near Charlotte NC, in Lancaster County, near but not in York County, and my mailing address is Fort Mill, which is of course in York County.... and I thought we made things confusing up here with our wild pronunciation... Charlotte - Chili - Leroy for example. (Long story to non-Rochestarians...I won't bore you).
--back to the move. I have been packing and readying as much as possible. It is an interesting balance to pack enough and not so much that I can't get thru the days. I need clothes afterall (it was only 8 degrees today...) and food (although I am making progress on emptying the cupboard), the TV has to stay til the move, the couch needs to stay until the last minute when it will get sold/given away, the garage is WAY too cold to empty out (although eventually I won't be able to use that as an excuse) and there are only so many toys my son will part with without noticing. The laptop and pets will be packed 2nd to last... right before my kid...
And so I do a little each day, throw out what I can, use and consolodate when possible, and continue to watch the days evaporate and hope there will be enough time to do it all.
---knowing full well there won't be and having to come to terms with the fact that that will just have to be ok.
My 90 days are up. I learned... uh.... that I am still busy, that I fill the days with being busy when I am not and that my original book idea is boring. Oh, and that working is over-rated.
And so--- I have started my freelance writing business. In fact I have to go now and sent the postcards out to my perspective new clients.
of course not.
