Well, after the initial shock, the bitching and the moaning, the “good God what will we dos!” I have decided this may be a good thing. The hubby loosing his job thing, that is. It was fantastic paying job, but it was a 50 minute drive from home every morning, 50 minutes back at the end of the day. He had to stand on a cement floor all day; he was forbidden to sit down, except at lunch. And he is WAY to smart for the job he was doing. So, at the end of the day, this may be a good thing. Luckily, his last day isn’t until May, so he has lots of time to look around and find something more suitable.
It’s all good!
I got my Bookmarks magazine in the mail yesterday!! And here I thought my subscription had run out! I’m so excited! Now I have that and Bookforum to read this weekend. Bookforum has a very interesting looking article about Paul Auster. And Bookmarks has articles about Wallace Stegner and Hermann Hesse! Between that, fixing up Estella’s Revenge for the coming up March publication and The Winter Rose, my weekend is looking buzzzzzy! I think I’ll make some soup and stay in all weekend.
Oh, and, not usually one to call attention to myself, but I am sort of surprised no one noticed I posted the first 2 very rough chapters of my NaNovel. If you recall, I wrote about 20,000 words for my NaNoWriMo attempt before life got the better of me and I ran out of time. If you look up above my lovely banner, you will see pages. In the very corner is my Novel. Just in case you’re bored and have nothing better to read.
