Upcoming Hiatus

There comes a time in every person's life in which they realize that they have a lot on their plate and one of those things may need to be put on hold...

This week I am 38 weeks pregnant, and for those of you that don't know, 37 weeks is full-term and 40 weeks is when you have the due date.  So basically I can go at any time and I hope that it's sooner rather than later.  As much as I'd love to be one of those people that tweets and blogs every detail of labor and delivery (NOT...*vom* sorry I think it's weird when people do that.  If you are one of those people, I apologize.  But it's not my thing.), I've realized that could take up some of my time as well as caring for a newborn.  So when that does happen this blog definitely won't be updated as frequently for awhile.

As if having a child wasn't enough I also decided to add a few more things to my bag of tricks...

If you've noticed on my blog and Twitter, it doesn't say 'office drone by day' anymore.  Yes, after 2 years of being in a support position I have accepted a new role in my same company, but it's definitely a step up.  I do Claims work for a major insurance company.  I won't say which one, but I can tell you that I do believe that we have the best commercials.  I start that new position as soon as I come back from maternity leave, so it's going to be a pretty busy summer.

I guess you all read this blog to hear about my writing as well...and you probably want to hear something about HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN.  Well right now it is in the hands of a WONDERFUL agent, I won't say who, but she's pretty awesome, and if anything comes up that is spectacular about this manuscript (agent, book deal, it catches on fire) then I will be sure to let you all know...maybe do a contest (okay there WILL be a contest when I get an agent and it will be epic).

So that's all for now.  Basically there will be an upcoming hiatus and I probably wont be blogging as much, but I'm trying!  I'm *hoping* for another Fangirl Friday this month and this Wednesday I do have my comparassion of the Kindle and Ipad.  So stay tuned and expect some great announcements this summer.


  1. Yay. Lots of great news...

    Oh, and fingers crossed for good agent news *crosses fingers and toes*

  2. Congrats on the job and I hope for the best with the agent! And enjoy your time with your newborn.

  3. Man, girl! Lots of exciting things are happening over there! :D
    I'm keeping my fingers cross for you as well! Good Luck!!!

  4. Lindsay- Thanks! I'm hoping for something.

    Nicole- I'm hoping she comes soon so I can enjoy it!

    Kelsey- I guess I just can't sit still! lol.

  5. Congratulations on baby time! And on your agent, too. I just had my own little girl a couple months ago and will be taking a blog break as I transition back to work at my office.

    There is so much excitement in store for you! I hope all goes well.

  6. Enjoy your well-deserved break, Magan :) Congratulations on your new-addition-to-be! Lots of well wishes :D


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
