Back in May I announced that "Laura's Look 1998-2000," my first collection of columns, would be out by the end of the month. Observant folk might notice we are now in July and there is no sign of the book. The curious among you might even ask, "What gives?"
The short answer: Life happened.
The longer answer (feel free to skip):
At the end of April my mother-in-law, who lives with us, went to the hospital with three different infections - pneumonia, a urinary tract infection, and sepsis. She was a week in the hospital, and then three weeks in a nursing home undergoing rehab.
Except for a brief hospital stay, since then she's been home. And she isn't as strong as she was before, and needs more care. This has fallen to me.
At some point in May I tossed my writing goals on the trash heap. I just couldn't juggle everything. I have had to scale back my goals and expectations for now while I figure out this new aspect of my life.
So, when is "Laura's Look 1998-2000" coming out?
Good question. My hope is the end of this month. But it depends on life right now, which is not entirely in my control.
Thanks for being patient with me. My hopes is you will find the book worth the wait.
