So much has happened…

Over the last couple of weeks, I haven’t had time to blog. I haven’t really had time to think about blogging, other than to worry that I’m not blogging enough. I never dreamed that working in an elementary school could take so much out of you. I have always had a great deal of respect for teachers, but now, I rank them right up there with the saints. It has been such an undertaking that I finally had to cut ties with my other job. There was no way I could keep up with working a full-time job and part-time hours at another job while also trying to keep up with my writing. For God’s sake, I’m only one woman, Jim.

But enough of that. Let’s get to the good stuff. I missed so much while I was away, playing librarian. For one thing, I missed the big earth-shattering news about Clay Aiken being gay. Who saw that coming? For those who don’t know me, you may not know that I have always been extremely disgusted by Clay Aiken and all things associated with him. I truly hate to be so negative, but really, he’s a turd.

One other big thing that happened over the last couple of weeks has been the big bailout failure. I’m not up on all of the details, but it sounds like a bunch of crap to me. At this point, I’m not sure if anything would help. Can we scrap it all and start over?

The other big news of the week was the passing of screen legend, Paul Newman. Although I haven’t seen many of his films, I was always a fan of his. He was quite a talented man and I was sorry to hear that he is gone.

Last weekend marked the season premieres of two shows that we truly enjoy here at the Benston house. Dexter and iCarly. We are somewhat schizophrenic in our entertainment tastes. And lest you think I’m confused about my own personality, when I say we, I am really referring to my husband, my daughter and myself.

So, in between dealing with children who talk too much, tying up loose ends at my second job and watching episodes of teenage antics and serial killer angst, I simply needed a break. I’m hoping that I will be able to put together more complete thoughts in the next few weeks. I’m also hoping that I will hear back from the publisher I recently contacted about my third Rona Shively book, Keeping the Faith.

Until next time…
