One comment asked me to elaborate on why July (and March and October) suck the big one in my industry, this is why. In general I put out about 35 proposals a year for new work. This should break down to about 3 a month, which would be manageable. But. the deadlines don't always fall into that nice 3 a month spread, they usually pile up on given months, for example so far this month I've had 7 requests for proposals for new work - 7, so about two a week, this is on top of preparing for a few interviews that are coming up in the next few weeks. So, that's just the proposal and interview part. Then there is the conferences that I have to travel to and attend. My company is often invited to present at conferences around the county - all these conferences seem to fall in the three months mentioned before, so not only do I have to prepare 7 proposals, and at least 2 interviews, I need to bounce around to these conferences that we are presenting at as well, to see existing and potential clients. It's tiring and a bit nerve racking, but it's also fun, I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it, it's just a lot of work in a very small period of time.
That, compounded by the fact that...thank you sweet Jesus...we are finally moving into our house in two weeks, I am now faced with the fact that I for the second time in 10 weeks need to pack all of my belongings and put them into boxes and move them. AGAIN. I can't wait, I really can't wait, but packing and moving again, ugh.
So, posting...not going to be much of that in the coming weeks. I do apologize, I know you all wait with bated breath for my new posts...NOT. But I will try and post when I can, come August, the posts will be much more frequent and will contain actual recipes. (Damn it where did the summer go?)
Also, one more thing. because CB and I were only going to be in the retirement village for 10 weeks we didn't have cable installed. Thank God for Netflix. Here is just a sample of what we have watched since moving in:
The Ice Harvest
Love in the Time of Cholera
The Brave One
Charlie Wilson's War
Back Soon. Peace!
