Wendy's Taking Her Toys And Going Home
So, for those of you who haven't gotten the memo - it pretty much sucks to be a librarian right now. Actually, come to think of it, I'm trying to think of a time when it was "good" to be a librarian. Hmmmm. The late 1990s maybe? I mean other than listening to morons tell me that the Internet was going to make the profession obsolete, the late 1990s were pretty frickin' sweet. Plus, I was skinnier back then. And younger. And just all around cuter. I know, all of this is hard to imagine. Wendy used to be cuter? How is that possible?
My Man says I'm too "raw" right now and probably shouldn't do anything rash. He's probably right. Don't tell him I said this, but he's right a lot. Damn his black heart. But I think I need to do it, because I'm just entirely too scatterbrained at the moment.
The long and the short of all this is that Real Life has reared her ugly head. My job is....in flux. What does that mean? Well, good question. What I do know are words like "reorganization" are being tossed around. The problem is that nobody really knows anything at the moment. It's all very much still up in the air. Word is I'm still going to have a job, but where that job will be and what I'll be doing isn't clear at the moment.
So yeah. Wendy is a little distracted right now.
To that end, the blog is taking a hiatus. I just need to take some time and decompress. To see where the cards end up falling and make the necessary adjustments.
However, it won't be a total dead zone here. I've promised reviews to people. Although at the rate I'm reading who the hell knows what's going to get done when. But, I've made commitments and I'm going to do my best to honor them, because that's how I roll. Plus, Sybil is going to expect me to read and review some Harlequins....eventually. Heroes & Heartbreakers, Criminal Element and Readers Gab are going to expect blog posts from me. I told all these people "yes" - and I'm going to try my best to stick with that. Which means this blog is going to become a little less active. I'll pop in. I'll still do occasional posts. But right now my usual pace of 3-4 per week probably isn't going to happen. At least not until things in Real Life settle down a wee bit.
