1) It was a bad thing to find out LJ is back up this morning - I've been at "work" for 2 hours, and I'm leaving in 2 for family wedding festivities (think good thoughts for Carrie, Brian and their families!!!). Don't ask how much "work" I've gotten done today, because I'll plead the 5th. And its month end. Yikes. I'd better make this short.
1)I still tend to default to LJ, even though I have logons for AO3 and DW (I probably have DW codes - anyone want them?). I've found a good percentage of my flist on DW - the gap seems to be a) in the LJ communities, as they either have no presence here or don't update consistently; and b)my friends, like me, seem to update on LJ, but not on DW. I'm afraid I'll miss things. I think I've only had one friend say, "don't look for me on LJ - I'm exclusively on DW" even though several cross-post. What are your thoughts? I've really about had it with the DDOS situation on LJ, and I don't like how they seem to not understand that a lot of us don't WANT our Facebooks to know about our LJs.
2) I'm sleeping about 4 hours a night during the week and crashing on the weekend. I'm too busy with work related stuff, and my husband is calling me on it. I took the kids for frozen yogurt last night - the first treat of that kind all Summer, and school starts in less than a month!!!!! I tend rob my sleep time to feed my leisure time. Trying to work freelance while FT employed with a 2 hour daily commute is not working for me. My freelance stuff gets dragged out and dragged out, making me look bad, but with the Hot Scot unemployed and only intermittently freelancing, I just can't cut the dead end job loose, since it's paying for things like our mortgage and our food. I'm also worried about losing skills that were expensive and time-consuming to attain, not to mention losing confidence in my abilities. Your advice, thoughts and encouragement are entirely welcomed!!!
HMM - this was not short!!!! Back to work!! Hi Ho, Hi Ho!p.s. This is not short and I'm not sure my cut is working - SORRY!!!! I'll get it figured out!
