I LOVE Lucy! (no pun intended). She was a comic on the outside but I think she carried a lot of pain on the inside.

(my middle name is Lucille)

Barb ~ That's all true and I love her too, but that's not why I posted her... Read my latest post.

I started to leave a comment here the other day when I saw the quote, and put it off.
I had a feeling that your life has gotten busier with professional writing, making it harder to get over here.... hence the Lucy quote.
My Dad used to say the same thing, and I took it to heart, always taking on too many tasks. Now that I'm older (and wiser ??), I've learned to slow it down a bit.... but then I have more luxury of that then I ever have before.
For you, though, I think it's a good thing, as you are finally being recognized for the hard work you have put into your profession.
Please let us know when the book comes out... after all, isn't that the next step?
