So I end 2010 the same way I started...
Running as fast as I can and still managing not to reach the end of the line.
You'll notice this blog is late. Yes, I forgot. When the reminder came through, I thought it must be the other Stephanie's day to blog. Did you notice any other Stephanie on the sidebar of this blog? No, because there are none.
My mother's favorite saying when I was growing up: "You'd lose your head if it wasn't attached." I'm embarrassed to say she's absolutely right. But I do have an excuse. I've been really freaking busy.
This month has been hectic. I've worked on copy edits for WHAT A GODDESS WANTS (Forgotten Goddess Book 1), revisions for MOONLIGHT TEMPTATION (Lucani Lovers Book 4) and the first draft of WHAT A GODDESS NEED (Forgotten Goddess Book 2).
Add in Christmas and I'm pretty sure I forgot not only my name but there are probably a few Christmas gifts still somewhere in the house. Luckily, my husband's and children's birthdays aren't in December. (I'm more than a little embarrassed to admit I forgot my husband's birthday several years ago. Yes, I'm that bad.)
This December signals the end of my busiest year ever. I wrote four books, saw three published and sold another three that will be out in 2011 and 2012. See, I have an excuse. And I'm proud to say I've not fudged a deadline yet. My kids have eaten a lot of pizza and cereal. We've gone without milk because I forgot to get to the store. And my son has worn the same pair of jeans two or three days in a row because the wash wasn't done. Hey, I've got my priorities.
I'm looking forward to the end of the year but I know that not much will change in January. I'll still be really busy, my kids will eat a lot of cereal and there will occasionally be no clean pants.
And you know what? I wouldn't want it any other way.
