silly silence

sorry for the radio silence around these parts…there’s a lot going on in my personal life (including dealing with a clingy, nearly walking, never sleeping baby who is cutting her EIGHTH chomper (!!!) plus infuriating apartment dramas & more tragic stuff, sadly) at the moment.

so, there’s so little time to write. much to my chagrin. woo boy, do i ever have things to write! i’m dying to write, to share, to say something, get a discourse going. but can’t, really, not much. just lame stuff like this. no time! no energy! alas. *sigh*

i hope to return to my semi-regular postings soon (wardrobe_remix(ers) o’ the week, etc.). patience is a virtue, ya?

how are you?

busy too? enjoying the summer (or winter?)?

i hope so.

be well.

    Knitting lace and sewing pencil skirts in this house. The Vancouver International Jazz Festival is on this week, so I’ll probably be out and about a lot…

    Busy is good for me though! I’m lovin’ the swing of summer.

    I hope you get some more time somehow — to breathe, to create, to express…

    Hey, don’t worry about it, you have a baby & that’s a full time job, let alone writing here & all the other stuff you do. Take care, post when you can & of course, try to nap when she does. (I know, that’s the only time when you can get stuff done!) Don’t get discouraged, everything’s changing all the time, life is good. πŸ™‚

    thanks guys. i always feel bad because i know there are people out there reading, and i want to write more, interact more, but just don’t have the time right now. i hope to have more time someday!

    jani: i’d nap when p. does, if she ever napped! she’s not much of a sleeper, day or night, unfortunately. πŸ™‚ so i don’t have a lot of time to “get things done”. maybe it will get better eventually…? i can only hope. thanks for the suggestion, though!

    This week I started Wardrobe Remixing! Even though I’m in the throes of moving out, and half my clothes are packed away. But I’m enjoying trying something a bit different, and getting instantaneous feedback on my outfits πŸ™‚

    Hey Tricia, Of course it will get better!It seems like you were just at Parsons! Look how much better things are now! You guys made a new life! (corny, sorry.) If she doesn’t like to nap, at least you’re in a place where there’s lots of stuff to do,and places to stroll her to.Did you see this week’s NY Mag.? There’s a new exhibit with huge Extreme Mammals at the Museum of Nat Hist.,and a Gazillion Bubble show at New World Stages at 50th St.
    I’m coming in this week to see my oldest, & go to the High Line!
    Anyway, there’s always tomorrow to get things done. I always liked being with my kids more than that stuff anyway.

    Oh! Please don’t feel badly about not posting! Off-line life is more important, and it sounds like you have a full plate!

    I’ve been busy sewing and trying to get some ideas and paperwork in order for starting a business later this year. Keeps me on my toes!

    Hope all is well with you too! πŸ™‚

    Hang in there. I think breaks are completely understandable–I sometimes think the longer you’ve been writing, the more necessary they become–especially with a teething baby!

    & I’ve been sewing like crazy, especially now that I’ve got my own room to spread out in!

    i absolutely understand you. i’ve also been busy lately and blogging (and surfing the web in general) is the first thing i stop then. and when it’s summer, i prefer being outside anyway. but of course i hope your life will be more relaxed again soon – i always love to read your posts.
    have a great summer!

    hey, don’t worry! I’m sure we all miss your thoughtful and thought-provoking voice, but we understand. And you’re worth waiting for.

    Life is just a weird whirl of social activity for me this summer. I think it has something to do with the fact that I WANT to be developing some papers (ie: working), so now everyone has to come and visit/stay here/get help moving, etc. Still two-plus months left, though. I’m not going to give up hope!
