Monday Announcements? 11-7-16

We're going to do an announcements/updates post on Monday rather than Friday this week. I figure, at this point, you're probably curious what's going on since I haven't given any updates lately, and I realize that content has been a bit more sparse lately than is our custom. First, I would like to apologize for that, and also apologize for not knowing exactly that will change. Right now, I can only remind you that I did select the name of this blog for a reason. We've done remarkably well, in my experience, with not being interrupted very often so far, but we do have some speed bumps going on right now.

On the plus side, most of the speed bumps are of a positive nature. In fact, before this morning, I would have said all of the speed bumps were positive. Then I tried to log in to do these updates and discovered that the website wasn't working, which led to a few hours on the phone with tech support, where I seemed to be doing about half of the work ... Honestly, the only advantage the guy on the phone seemed to have was access to the server back end that I didn't have. Aside from that, I was giving as many technical answers as he was. Quite a bit of technical support today really has become a matter of, "Do you know how to use Google?" In the end, though, as you can tell since you're reading this, I was able to bring the site back online.

I have taken on additional responsibilities with the day job. Some of those are temporary, some are the new normal, and some are ... we're not entirely certain yet. It's all certainly a good thing, and I am very much looking forward to it, but it is definitely in a transitional period, and that is where a great deal of my time and attention is currently aimed. That is what pays the bills, so it obviously deserves the attention. That is also the biggest part of why things are up in the air right now. I don't know how long the transitional period will be, so I don't know how much extra time and attention I have. Frequently Interrupted is important to me, and I have every intention of keeping it going, but it will have to scale up and down as time allows. Some weeks, I will be able to do full written posts as we all expect, and others will be, shall we say, a bit more simple.

In case you were wondering, we're doing this announcement today as a form of warning that this week will be one of the more simple ones.

Things are going well, though. There is a great deal of activity in the foster case that I can't go into at the moment, but it is all positive activity. I look forward to letting you know more when I can, but we're happy and excited here, and looking forward to more positive changes.

We're coming into the holiday season, and that's always a busy time. It all happens at once, doesn't it? Ty to take time to relax, and remember that everyone has their own seasonal expectations and rituals. Don't stress, as much as you're able, and try not to stress your friends and neighbors.

Speaking of the holiday season, don't forget that we have the Out of the Darkness walk coming up on December 11. We appreciate any and all help, so please click the link and do what you can. Thank you.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and stick around. There is always something new just around the corner.
