this is for both of you

My referral stats show that about two people still check this thing every day, so I suppose the least I could do is pretend to exist for a moment, and give a little update.

What do we all think about Alexandria, Virginia? Hubby is looking at a job possibility out there. I’ll be honest, even though I dread the physical idea of packing and moving (especially with a toddler!), I think I welcome a change of scenery. It’s just too depressing around here lately. Nobody has jobs. There’s been a consistent twelve inches of snow on the ground since well before the official start of winter. My writers group has dispersed and moved all over the country. My friends and family never really did visit us here even, only an hour away, so it’s not like they’ll miss us much.

But I’m not here to have a pity party. I promise 🙂

I haven’t given up on my novel, but it’s gone into something like hibernation, I think. With all the snow on the ground, I think hibernation feels like a natural state for things this time of year. Though I’m trying to keep my ass out of hibernation-mode, and I’ve discovered that my laptop fits nicely on the treadmill book-rack. How did I not discover that before?

And we might possibly be the only people in the country to still have their Christmas tree up, even though we did manage to take off the decorations. A bare Christmas tree standing in our living room, and it’s the end of January. No joke! It will come down before February, I swear!

Hibernation-mode, I’m telling you!
