One Day Breather, sort of

by | Personal

Wow! It’s been 11 days since I last wrote here. I believe that’s the longest I’ve gone without blogging in three years. It’s really crazy! I’m taking a moment to drop in and explain what’s been happening since I’ve temporarily opted out of  doing the social media thing.

I’ve been absolutely deluged with work. For the first time ever I’ve had to turn away jobs. Thankfully, my regular clients have been very understanding. But I feel a bit guilty, like I’m letting folks down. But there’s no physical way I can take on certain projects any more, for several weeks.

I’ve taken on a contract with a goverment contractor on an e-learning job that’s the main thing. Several long scripts are in the process of making their way into my email box. I had a brief respite this week for a few days, (until the next script of 10) when another client with an interactive project that involved over 6,000 short, individual  audio files came in with a very tight deadline.

I’m not complaining, I’m just saying that it’s impossible to spend any discretionary time to hang out on the internet, blog, Twitter, and  visit Facebook when I can’t even make dinner for my family because I’ve got to be voicing.

The good new is, I finished the 6,000 file job last night (yes, Saturday night); and made all the wav to mp3 conversions and today I’m uploading to the client’s ftp. Yay!

Thank goodness for batch processing technology.

I have some yard work, or I believe it’s a yard! It’s a beautiful day and I’m going to step out of the booth, and go outside in the So. Cal. sunshine, re-pot some root-bound plumerias, and spend some nurturing time with my family.

I’m not sure when I’ll write in here again. The next big script is due to arrive tomorrow.
