Guess Who Decided to Write a Post?

Help! Send a search party! I've fallen off the face of the blogging earth and am lost in cyberspace! Oh, wait. I'm actually writing a blog post, so I must have found my way. Never mind about the whole search party thing. I'm good. :)

Life has been so busy lately something had to go! Unfortunately for my, like, five devoted readers it was blogging. I believe, however, that life has now calmed back down, so I will be able to present useless drivel for your enjoyment once again. :)

As I mentioned weeks ago, I recently started two part-time jobs. I am teaching a few classes at a local school, and I've had to get used to grading essays while entertaining my one-year-old. I also started teaching online classes for what is supposed to be only 10 hours a week. Now that the students have figured out how the whole online school thing works, and I'm not answering 72 emails a day about technical issues that really have nothing to do with me, I think it's actually going to be less than ten hours a week, so yippee! That will make up for the 20 hours a week I've been spending at first.

I totally didn't mean to start two part-time jobs--it's really my intention to give Colter as much attention as I possibly can before he is stolen from me by the school system in a few short years, but I kind of just fell into both opportunities, and I couldn't say no. I really have to make some cash somehow because milk is like $5.00 a gallon!!!! Okay, so maybe not quite that much, but close!

In addition to my two new jobs, I also tried to sell fine art photography at my hometown's fall festival last week. I spent four nights in a row trying to convince people that they needed my photographs hanging in their homes. It didn't go so well--people seemed to be more interested in the socks at the next lady's booth--but now I have 50 prints, matted, bagged, and ready to go. Maybe I can put them on Etsy or something.

Now that The Great Photography Project is over, I will have more time to blog! Hey, I might even have time to read a few blogs (which I haven't done in forever! I am SO behind. I feel isolated from the world). Anyway, all is fine and dandy with me, I've just been swamped! I'm glad a few people love me and wanted to know where in tarnation I've been! Thanks!

I'm proud to be one of your 5 devoted readers. ;) Well, I forgive you it does sound like you have been super busy! I don't think I could juggle all that! You should totally try to sell your pics on Etsy or even on your blog. I'd link them too! You are a great photographer.

Don't worry about not blogging... I have been so busy that I have not checked out anyone's blog for a while now either!

I would love to see your photos, too! Cool that you are ready to sell them!
