Now this is sorrowful. I saw the link on my blog, and I figured I'd check to see if there were any new comments, or, if I were really lucky, new posts.

I was really lucky...I guess.

I'm sorry that you guys are leaving, but I hope this works out best for all of you. I guess the one issue with a "fish out of water" blog is that the fish is out of water. I hope that Chicago works out better for you, and I hope to see a blog from the Evanston Empress or whatever in the near future.

Ontario Emperor

Many, many thanks OE. Even though we never met, I consider you a true friend. Good luck to you and your eclectic, wonderful blog and to your family.

As for the fish out water ... well said. As usual.

All the best on this new stage of your life!

Anne, you better be going to BlogHer next year since it's in Chicago!!!

We used to live up by Gurnee and still have many friends in the area. So when we ALL go to BlogHer next year (yep, the whole family) I hope we can finally meet up.

Good luck with the move.

Good luck.

Thanks everyone! It does indeed look like I'll have a new blog up in a few months. It's in the planning stages still and will be quite different from anything I've tried before.

There won't be any notice posted here, but I will try and make the rounds of blogs (which I need to do anyway) when I'm ready to go public with it.

BlogHer in Chicago, huh? Sounds like a plan, Anne-Marie.

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
