Sorry, folks. I'm talking more to myself than to you.

I haven't posted in a week. I hate that. I've never, in the almost 5 years since I've had this blog, gone an entire week without posting.  Bad Linda.

Thanks to everyone who left comments on my last post about male friendships. The differences between men and women are so interesting. And thanks again for all the tech tip comments the previous week.  My "Tech Share" meeting at work went very well!  Thanks for making me look halfway intelligent.

I am digging my job.  Miracle! I know I keep saying that, but it's true.  I'm busy as hell so the day flies by, plus I get to help people. And wouldn't you know, I have more freelance work and personal coaching clients than ever before.

Yes, I am busy as hell. I was thinking that this is the first I've ever been in a super-demanding full-time job and in a relationship at once and man, both really take up a good chunk of your time.  I remember how back in the single days I used to come home from work and fire up my laptop and then settle in for a night of writing. I'd work on my book or my blog or my comedy act or an article I was writing for  Now?  Well, obviously I'm not posting here like I used to and I swear I haven't written anything creatively in ages.  And worst of all, I haven't been on stage in a month.

But wait.  Now I write resumes. A lot of them.  For people who've lost their jobs.  And they are friggin' works of art. My clients are so happy when they see them, which thrills me as well.  And I actually do put a lot of creativity in the resumes I write.

And although I haven't been doing comedy, I'm in front of people leading workshops and facilitating groups, and of course, I inject humor every chance I get.  My clients are learning things and feeling better about themselves.  That's important.

So I guess this is what I should be doing right now.  I'm still being creative and funny, just in a different forum.  And although I never minded living by myself, given the choice, I'd rather come home to a handsome husband and settle in and watch a movie together.  Though I wish I had time to write one.

I want to do so much. But everything has an ebb and flow, you know?  Sometimes I just have to remind myself that the universe unfolds in divine order. I'll do comedy again soon, I'll post more regularly, and I'll write another book.  Maybe two, and a screenplay. Everything in its right time.


This Sunday at 3 p.m. PDT (6:00 EDT) I'll be a guest on my friend Dave Kanyan's "Dumbing it Down With Bob" radio show on WGXC 90.7 in Hudson, NY.  You can listen to a live stream at Dave is a great guy--very entertaining--and I'll try to say something amusing, too.  I don't know if it's a call-in show or not, but if you think of it, give a listen!

you are so right, everything has an ebb and flow. You are putting your energy in a good place right now, it's just a different place than before.

I'll be listening on Sunday! So excited for you.

Not Bad Linda! No!
You're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing, and if that means you don;t have time to write here, that's fine by me. Of course, it is lovely to see you, even once a week, or whenever.
"the universe unfolds in divine order" is true, and it's better to go with the flow, enjoy the days etc. than stress out over a blog, even Vegaslindalou blog!
"see" ya Sun (hope I don't forget!)
