I Could Tell You, But Then I'd Have to Shoot You

In case you were wondering what's been going on with me lately, due to my sporadic posting, the short answer is "a lot." Some of it I can talk about, and most of it I can't.

I follow other blogs and when the author says things like "lots going on, but can't tell you yet!", the speculation in the comments begins. Let's just get a few of those out of the way:

  • I'm not quitting my blog
  • I'm not pregnant
  • I'm not getting a book deal
  • I'm not going on The Ellen Show

Of course, if any of those became realities, I'd be thrilled.

  • I am working on trial preparations. The criminal trial is set for March 22, and the civil trial is set for April 19. I am drafting my victim impact statement - talk about writing for therapy. I can finally say most of the things I've kept to myself for over two years.
  • I am working with other mothers who have lost children to help them set up fundraisers and scholarships for their children.
  • I am working with Voices Insisting on Pursuit Safety ( Jessica and Kelli's pictures and story are now included in their promotional and marketing materials.
  • I hope to soon be working with another advocacy group to make some policy changes.
  • In the meantime, I'm working full-time, cooking, cleaning, enjoying married life and helping Maddy with her homework.

So, now you're up to date, kinda. I can tell you to watch this space around the beginning of February - I should have an update on something I mentioned above.
