I apologize for falling off the face of the Blogosphere! I was so busy preparing for our family adventure in France, then playing “catch up” once we returned. And then…well, the sunshine beckoned. The pile of books I’ve been wanting to read beckoned. The limited time I had with my college girl at home beckoned. The yard work and neglected-from-the-school-year housework beckoned. And before I knew it, the end of August had arrived!
We took our girl back up to college a little over a week ago. Her new apartment is adorable and I know she’ll have such a fun time during her sophomore year. It was still tough leaving her, but not nearly as difficult as it was last year. Hopefully, I won’t start breaking down while listening to love songs on the radio like I did last August. (Boy, was I a mess!)
I love the break from our routine that summer brings. But now I’m dusting off my computer keyboard, fixing up my neglected website (www.hollybowne.com), and slowly working myself back into my regular writing schedule.
I would love to know how my website’s links--to writing samples I’ve personally uploaded--get all convoluted and messed up when absolutely nothing’s been changed on my end! Fortunately, my biggest fan (Hi Mom! *wave*) noticed things were amiss and let me know. Hopefully everything is linking smoothly now. I feel about operating my website the same way I feel about driving a car. It’s necessary and I have a basic idea of how it all works, but when something goes wrong, I really don’t have the first clue on how to fix it!
I hope everyone is having a lovely summer! (And yes, it’s still officially summer until September 23rd!)
