THE UNBEARABLE SPARSENESS OF BEING Postings've been a lot sparer around this joint recently, but it's not 'cause I don't love you Sporadic Reader. I'm still working on getting into the routine of my new job at the behavioral health center: though it's less driving than my previous position as an in-home therapist, there are a lot less lulls in it. Most days I've been coming home, feeling pretty whipped and barely able to make it all the way past prime time.
At the same time, we're still working to pull ourselves out of the financial valley that my unemployment pushed us into. The new job pays less than my last 'un, so we're still having to readjust our already fairly modest lifestyle. Better than no job at all -- or having to go through the effort of relocation one more time -- but it still can be anxiety inducing. All part of the current economic slump, of course.
We keep hoping the book will capture someone's attention, but, to date, the response has been limited. It's a hard clime for small publishes, we're told, though that hasn't stopped up from initiating a follow-up to Measure by Measure. (We like the characters too much to leave 'em alone.) And if any of you out there have dropped good money to read the first Measure, why not leave a comment on one of the bookstore sites?
Anyhoo, I've still got more reviews and comments at this here blogspot in the works. Haven't said anything about the new teevee season yet: we're currently wholeheartedly enjoying Eastwick, liking Glee at times in spite of itself and holding out hopes that Flash Forward will really bust loose. When we realized that Jay Leno's new show had most likely helped push Medium off NBC, we were rather surly about it, but, thankfully, the show's shifted over to CBS Fridays where sturdy Patricia Arquette will most likely trounce that scrawny Eliza Dushku's butt. Me, I'm just grateful for the invention of the DVR.
See ya on the weekend.
