Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Taking deep breaths

You may have noticed the lack of any worthwhile posts. I'm terribly sorry about that. December is the busiest month of the year for me. Between all the holiday stuff and children's things, there is also that little irritation of work. For whatever reason, I get bombarded with any number of assignments from multiple magazines all at the same time. Then, on top of all that, I had the editor from hell who just couldn't ever be satisfied with this one piece I turned in. Finally, after five rounds of revisions, he was satisfied. But, did he say 'good work' or 'thanks for doing all of this'? Nope. Nada. Jerk.

Then, I'm the president of a local professional organization and because they all know I blog, I was volunteered to be the national blog chairwoman. Ok, that was intimidating enough, but I can do it and once I got over the daunting task ahead of me, I embraced the idea of it. Now, I have some of the staff people for the organization taking it upon themselves to change what I was doing - even though the national board president gave me free reign over the blog - and it is just pissing me off beyond belief. Plus, instead of coming to me to let me know he had an issue about what I was doing, he went to another staffer to complain. Now, I don't know if she is a bitch or if she was wanting to let me know that the other guy is a jerk, but she forwarded me his email to her and included the national blog committee members and the national president in the email. ARGH! Office politics. This is one reason I like working for myself. My boss is a bitch, but she cuts me some slack now and then. *yes, that was meant to a joke, please laugh*

*taking deep breaths*

ARGH! I'm so fed up with other people right now. I have cookies to bake, pies to make, presents to wrap and bills to pay. Oh yeah, and stories to write. Calgon, take me away!

    I'm right there with you. As I look back at old archives, I find it is common this time of year for blogs to be less active!

    Hugs - hang in there!
