So a very nice reader wrote to inquire about the health of everyone here at JanesGuide, worried we might be on the Gulf Coast because of our lack of updates for a couple of weeks. Everyone is fine, though we’re scattered across the country (and a couple of our reviewers are in Canada), none of us are in a hurricane affected area. Rather, it was just the life turmoil for me of the change of season from summer to back-to-school. I know, that’s kinda silly. It’s not like it takes huge amounts of time to sit down and get some updating done, and I should be putting up new reviews daily. I guess I just sort of forgot that it had been two WEEKS because life is rushing by so quickly.
Getting ready to open my retail shop in about 3 weeks, which will be a huge life change also. For 11 years, I’ve worked mostly from home. Sometimes from an office, when I needed more separation of home/work. Coming up though, I’ll trade in the freedom of my “work whenever I have the time” lifestyle to an actual daily schedule. Eek! Actually, I’m very much looking forward to it. I’m ready to interact with people face to face. And I LOVE my shop. I get to sell all of the pretty things I love, to other people with a similar aesthetic. I am a little nervous about grand opening time, only because the shop is so very much me, that it’s like inviting strangers into my home. What if they don’t like it? I think I’ll get my feelings hurt. heh.
Anyhow, don’t worry about the site – we’ll still be going. It was an absolute joy to have Vamp back for the summer. I would love to brag about all of the things she’s been keeping busy with the rest of the year, but since she doesn’t publicly blog anymore, I’d better not. Suffice to say she’s an amazingly talented and smart woman. And I am trying to figure out time for us to do one of our every couple of years dinners. Yes, that’s how often I get to see her in person, once every year or two. Peter too, every couple of years. And dear sweet AAG I’ve not had the pleasure of meeting in person yet, more’s the pity.
Oh, I have another reviewer coming on board, who I will have to tell you about shortly. She’s totally awesome though, and will fit right in around here. While I love Wolfe and Peter, I do love having lots of women around here to write from a different perspective. :)
Anyhow, there it is – my once in a blue moon checkin. Here’s wishing you all well, the 3 of you who still read when I’m this flaky. heh. :)
