A wild blog entry appears.  
It's been a while since I've last posted. I can explain my absence, however.

1) New job that involves getting up at 4:15am every morning for the commute so I can reach the office by 7am. Yeah.

2) New house with new roommate. See below.

3) New marital status. See above.

My name isn't even legally changed yet, because Social Security hasn't sent me my new card back. It's been a long, long process with a million and one things that still haven't been done.

I don't know if I'll return to blogging here. I'm still super busy, life isn't calming down, and god help me, the holidays are right around the corner, which is going to involve a LOT of family gatherings. Christmas tree shopping because hey, we have our own place now, and there's things we need. Christmas cards. Holiday things, like recitals, more recitals, performances.

I'm still teaching. I'm still playing the piano. That actually leads me to my next thing:

4) New position as organist at church. Even though I've never played an organ before.

That one I'm not too certain about. We'll see.

If life calms down, I'd love to return. Until then, however, I'll be updating my Twitter more frequently, so if you'd like to follow me, I've changed my name there:

Jean Yoder

Much love to you all. <3

~Jean

I haven't gotten a chance to say this - which sucks because, hello, it's you - so I'm taking advantage of playing catch up to do this. (This is also in response to your other journal's post but I thought if I replied at both, it'd get repetitive.)

Congratulations! I'm so so happy for you. And seeing both this post and the one in your other journal, I must say, hubby sounds awesome. (Avengers references in the vows, come on, that's just flippin' fantastic!) *hugs tightly* I wish the two of you all the happiness in the world, bb.

Novel writing! Holy fuck, I'm so proud of you. (So proud I reverted back to swearing, lol. I actually managed to mostly stop doing that!) Seriously. So proud that I sort of feel like doing a dance and going "Check that out! That's my friend, Jean!" or something equally dorky. When that gets published (yes, when) I'll be at the bookstore and buying a copy, no matter my money situation at the time. *puts foot down on that issue, hear that, universe*

I know I already said it but, really, I'm so happy for you and proud of you. It sounds like you're doing amazing even if life is chaotic, two hour commutes and all.

I'll PM you on...one of your accounts, lol, to get your address. There's a matter of a Christmas card to send you! (And a small gift, shut up, don't argue.)

Love and miss you, bb!
