Hi Blog Readers! How are y’all doing?
I know, I’ve been busy. This new job of mine is going really well. It’s a lot of writing though, and I find myself spending hours more at the compy than I ever intended to do again. It’s funny – I thought I was totally done with this kind of work, and yet, I love it. I’m so very glad to be at this kind of a job.
I’m not being very exact here. I can explain…
I have a job with a great company, ICUC. I love working for them, it’s challenging and exciting, I’m sharpening my pre-existing skill set as well as learning new things on the regular. I’m confident that I’m a good fit. The job I do is a mixed bag of sorts – I work on projects, I work on tasks. I meet with others. I’m both a lone wolf and a collaborator. I make my own hours most of the time, I manage my own schedule. And… I WRITE. I write daily, all the time, and in many different ways. I get to write creatively and I do lots of technical writing. Sometimes it’s just emails and emails.
At the end of the day, I’ve spent hours staring at the monitor and my writer’s energy is tapped. Hence slacking at this blog. And let me say this – once you get out of the regular blogging habit, it’s really overwhelming to jump back in.
My health has been so-so. I’ve had this little cold on and off, I’ve had some weird upset tummy issues. But mostly, I’m okay and just super busy.
Check out the work writing I’ve been doing on the daily for my company blog here. I’m pretty proud of what I’ve been doing work-wise.
So about blogging… I totally have a kajillion ideas all backlogged in my brain and scratched out on my paper notes, and I want to get them out onto hhr! This is my first attempt at biting the bullet and trying to get back into the groove. So, if you’re still with me and reading now – know that I’m so appreciative and I’m excited to keep striving for a better balance.
We have some HUGE changes coming up soon. We’re moving next month, Duggs really got orders so we know it’s real now! We’ll be saying goodbye to a lot: our friends, Hawaii, this lifestyle, the USMC… as well as being so far away from family – yeah, there’s a lot we’ll be saying hi to when we move back East, and we’re so excited for that.
Even though I’ve been workin’ my tail feather off, things have still been wacky as ever around here. Poor Duggs, never a dull moment!
So, It’s good to be back and say hi, I hope to be posting more and more, with regularity and consistency. Cheer me on, yo!
As always, thanks for reading! xoxo, hhr
