Huh. Somehow I managed to forget that I’m on vacation next week. I work from home on Monday, but then the rest of the week is mine to do with what I will. Well, except for Thursday, when I cook Thanksgiving dinner. But other than that, the week is mine.
As long as I get all of the writing that is due next week done over this coming weekend.
THEN the week is mine.
Heather forwarded me a link that is so damned adorable I thought I was going to die of the cute.
Snerkology Media, the website that I will use to advertise my professional photography services, is up and running. It has my real name all over it, and indirect connections between my “real” life and my “on-line” life. This means that my crazy ex could find the website, and make the connection between it and “Laura Charon of Snerkology”, if he put forth a bit of effort. I’m not too terribly concerned about it, really. He already knows where I live (since it’s the same house he and I lived in), and I haven’t put out my personal phone number (though he knows my work number), so the only real damage he could do is send nasty-grams to my Snerkology e-mail (again, he already has my work e-mail addy) or leave troll-like comments on this humble website.
At which point my loyal minions (that’s you guys) would rise up and smite him. Verily, I am well protected.
I’m still toying with the idea of just “coming out” here. It’s confusing enough to have to keep writing under “Laura Charon” at BMP and UpTake (that’s how I started there, so that’s how I should continue). Meh. It’s not a decision of overwhelming importance. Unless you guys have an opinion about it? Do you care, one way or another?
Oh, and FYI, you guys will start seeing my “real” name associated with email@example.com, if I e-mail you or respond to e-mails sent to that address. Just to keep everyone confused and on their toes!
Jen posted an update about Oliver – he’s not out of the woods yet, but he is improving gradually. She wanted me to thank you for all of your kind thoughts and prayers. Keep ’em coming! I’ll keep everyone updated on what’s going on, here and on Twitter.
Finally, Devlin turned five on the 12th. I wish Lilly had stayed in touch with us, I’d love to still be able to have a relationship with our grandsons.
Happy Birthday, Devlin, wherever you are!
