Up to My Ears

If you read my weblog regularly, you may have noticed that my posting has become.. erratic. There will be nothing for as much as a week, then, suddenly, I post three or four entries (usually backdated).

There's a reason for this. I can't claim it's a good reason, but here it is:

I found a job in June, after seven months of being out of work. The good news is that I have income again. The bad news is that I don't have a lot of discretionary time.

The job is 40 miles from my house. I take the train (and a company shuttle bus). It takes me 75 minutes each way, twice a day: home to station to work; work to station to home.

By the time I get home, most days, I'm brain-fried. I can eat dinner. I can read a book. I can snuggle the cats and talk to Rich. I can go to bed. I can't seem to do much else.

I usually manage to relax enough by Saturday or Sunday to get to various necessary household chores - writing checks, running laundry, shopping for groceries. With luck, I also relax enough to update my journal and weblog. It's not that I don't want to keep up the weblog; I do! I just can't quite seem to find the energy during the week.

If you've been reading this far, I apologize. I recommend that you stop by on Monday or Tuesday to see what came up during the week. Or, sign up for notification by email.

And thanks for reading.
