Posted on April 18, 2013 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

Tucked away in the woods on dial- up for the last three years with three kids, I drank so much caffeine in town during school hours at Starbucks for free Wifi that my adrenals have yet to forgive me. Crazy, in retrospect, trying to teach on-line while the kids were in school and by night, college English, pushing the…

Thanks Tania! I'm learning to do stuff in small bites but Some days I forget I don't have the big chunks I had this time last year!

Oh my golly Tania. Here is a really funny coincidence. Barbara was born in a town 20 minutes north of me and was here in the Berkshires at the Millay Colony on retreat. We had a sweet exchange. I will email you about guest blog posting. I hope your evening is lovely. I am so happy to be connected. xo S

Thank you for accepting. I enjoyed your blog post and your comments on my blog made me smile. I am packing up and heading to another beach town for a couple of weeks. Hopefully I will be very productive as there are a million things swirling around in my head that need to be released!

Hi, Tania,

Thanks so much--you're right, it IS nice to connect! Wow--what a busy house you must have. How do you find the time and willpower to write? I am still searching for that magic potion that will make family life, work, and writing all come together clearly.

I'll definitely check out your blog!

Thanks again,

PS: OF COURSE, I'd be honored to be interviewed! Any time. I have a fantastic story about how SOP came about and I'm happy to share "the process." The better way to reach me is at norined@ix.netcom.com. Looking forward to talking with you!

Hi Tania! Thanks for the compliment! I'll share with the illustrator! My apologies that it's taken me so long to respond. I'm embarrassed to say I just now realized there were comments waiting for me on my page! I'm gonna check out your blog now. Thanks for the link. You must be on Facebook. Let's connect there too. SOP is at www.facebook.com/scienceofparenthood
