I’d tell you that it’s been a hell of a week. I sat exams on Monday, left school on Wednesday, spent the last few days working on my resume and grading final papers, and today is the husband’s birthday, so we’re off to lunch with the family and then tonight we’re on to The Nightmare Before Christmas Burlesque, a production that some of our friends are in. Tomorrow, Little Jedi comes home from a visit to his dad’s house, and I have to get final grades finished before then.
I’d tell you that this week is going to be a whirlwind of working on and sending out the resume, Christmas shopping, and last minute details. I’ve been so caught up in exams and in decision making that I haven’t had much time for stopping to think about Christmas. We’ve got the trees up, but we haven’t done any shopping.
I’d tell you that I’m in the middle of reading a totally-for-fun, just-because-I-want-to stack of books that feels never-ending. And that for the first time in a long time, I’m so happy about that rather than daunted by it. Generally, stacks of books are overwhelming. Generally, they mean hours of close-reading and analysis. But not anymore—not unless I feel like it.
I’d tell you that I finally re-vamped my Facebook this week, and I’m adding bloggers over there. I’m keeping some things more private—images of Little Jedi and updates about specific events are a little more confined, and it took me a while to decide how to grapple with that. I’ve been on Facebook since about 2006. That’s 8 years, and it’s longer even than I’ve had Little Jedi . . . So there were too many things to go through individually and set privacy locks on. I fixed that, though, and it’s nice to have something crossed off the list.
I’d tell you that I’m going to revamp the looks for Tumblr and WordPress for Part Time Monster and that I’m considering a category overhaul. Those are monumental projects, though, and they’ll likely have to wait another week or two before I can start on them.
I’d tell you that I’m a little short on words. This week has been full of writing, discussing, and explaining, and my words are running low. And so I’d likely just listen to you or sit in comfortable silence over a cup of coffee and people-watch.
