My daughter isn't the only one who's adjusting to this new phase of life. The whole family's been learning how to handle our "new normal" (although my husband seems to be doing better than the rest of us). My youngest daughter is adjusting to a life with less quality time with her big sis. I was unprepared for how much of a change it would be for me. My "baby" is now officially an adult and is enrolled in a Big Ten college with a full fall semester of credits. Aside from the financial information I've been sifting through (which strikes terror in my heart), I've also been dealing with a messed-up neck and shoulder. Multiple smaller projects, and the promotional and marketing stuff all writers are required to do, have filled my plate.
After a particularly grueling weekend, I realized something had to give. After much thought, discussion, and prayer, I decided to step down from blogging here at Lands Uncharted. I still have my own blog (www.jmhackman.com), but this will be my last blog post here for awhile.
From the beginning, my fellow bloggers made me feel very welcome here at Lands Uncharted. I made new friends, learned to write faster, became more adept at writing book reviews (something that's difficult for me), met new authors, and connected with some awesome readers! Thanks for visiting and commenting on my posts!
I enjoyed getting to know all of you. Please, stop by and say "hi" on social media. :-)
