He there! So as if I wasn't busy enough as it was...  
...back in April, we opened another restaurant.

Apparently Joe thought that someone had added more hours to the day.

We discovered after a month of getting the restaurant ready to open, while still running an existing restaurant and managing a baby, that the earth's rotation on its own axis was still, yes, sadly only 24 hours.

I know. I too was quite disappointed.

So yeah, the Grill across the river from our hamburger joint had closed earlier and the chance came up for us to take it over and take it over we did. We changed the name from the grill to the diner and voila!

A new headache and all-consuming money pit.

Actually, it wasn't a money pit. A pit assumes there's a bottom. This was a friggin' black hole.

Sorry to say, the economy is such that a venture like this was not the smartest thing to do (especially since most of my vendors have agreed this has been the worst year for restaurants in 20 years) and we closed the place at the end of December.

Yeah, we took a risk and it didn't pan out. What are you gonna do? We still have Small Fryes so that's good.

I also have more time again. Joe made some comment about how I used to love posting to my journal and thought I should get back to that again.

So here we are!

*dons Ed Norton's Fight Club voice* I am Joe's guilt-ridden conscience.

I don't know about writing fanfic anymore, but there is so much else to write about: newsworthy stories, reality tv, movies, kids, those wacky Kardashians...

Wait, I won't go there. They get enough press already as it is.

(For what I have no idea).

Welcome back. I'm sorry that things didn't work out but perhaps the extra free time will be good for you and your family.

Hello, glad to see you back. I wish there were more hours to a day, I could use them. Enjoy the extra time with your family. They grow so fast.

Huh, who knew you couldn't add more hours to a day? :P

So glad to see you back! Sorry the second restaurant didn't work out though. I'm sure you can find something good to use the extra time on though.

I can handle not having fanfic any more, but threatening with the Kardashians... that's worse than any horror story! GAH!

Glad to have you back though. *hugs* :)

glad you're back!! I'm so sorry about your second restaurant, but how cool is your husband for noticing that you haven't been posting for awhile :D and seriously, how cute is your icon. I look forward to reading whatever you have to write.

You live! Sounds like there was a hell of a lot going on. While I'm sad things didn't work out, I'm glad that you and the fam are doing okay.

Ah I've missed you so much my dear Maria ! Any idea about how many dreams I had about reading the rest of that cannibal story ? UH ? *glares*
Anyway, if you think you're not up to write fics anymore (which I doubt) just hearing about all this RL events like you used to would be great.
I miss you funny and wicked mind !
Sorry about that other restaurant. Sometimes life just sucks. *kicks it viciously*

hope life is starting to settle for you.
Your fic, "Justin's Baby" came up in one of the fic request threads, and it made me think of you and how awesome all your stories were.

So, I hope you are well! And I just wanted to say "hello!"

Hi Honey, I am sure you are super busy with life given your last post was over a year ago...but, I just wanted you to know that your fic "night at the liberty baths" was named the Midnight Whipsers featured story for the month of April.

Congrats :)

Anywho, I hope you are doing well! I miss your stories and your humor, but I hope you are doing well.
