Rejection

I've never been good at handling rejection. I don't know that anyone ever gets used to it, but for me, it's not even just about getting used to it. It's about accepting it. Not obsessing over it. But I do. There have been a couple of significant rejections lately that have been plaguing me. One [...]

And Then There’s Life

I didn't make it long before going on another hiatus. The reason for it, though, is a good one. About a week and a half ago, Husband and I signed papers for our new home. Since then, it's been a whirlwind of packing, cleaning, moving, working, drinking, and eating. Not much in the way of [...]
