How Did I Get Here, And Where Is The Next Turn?

Greetings and salutations to all who deem this worthy of your time...

Tues...Day... After... Noon...

Sorry... that song seems to be going through my head today, so I waited until it was 'afternoon' to write. Well, I have always said I'm just slightly off kilter... (the song? Moody Blues...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPLWBhNW3FM )

Anyway, it's been a few days. The husband was home for the first time since the new job, and to be honest, I just lost track of time a bit, and really didn't have much to say. I was also finishing Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. That has to be one of the most boring books I have ever read...( and actually finished), at least the first 2/3 of it anyway. The language is oldfashioned, the main characters a bit stiff and stilted, the writing style... uhm... weeeelllll... let's just say it isn't my usual glass of sweet tea... BUT...

To those who do read on such a level, and those like myself who are willing to try and expand their reading criteria, so to speak, the last third or so makes the first 2/3s worth wadding through. It's hard to explain it well. I just wish that Ms. Rand's philosophy had been brought to my attention sooner. The woman was a genius. I plan to check out a few of her other, less taxing, works... or maybe look for condensed. (Oh, stop laughing Punk! It's your fault...)

Anyway, yes, the husband loves the new company. He gets to drive ATVs for a living. Who wouldn't? Well, it's mostly just backing them off the truck, but he is like a little boy on Christmas morning. I just hope this company gives him the miles so he can earn more. It's been a pretty rotten year, financially, for us. I see a glimmer at the end of the tunnel. I just hope it isn't a train. I am sort of tired of getting flattened every time I see that glimmer. Guess it's true what is always said: you take the good with the bad. Let's hope there will be a bit more good from now on. Lord knows, we've earned it.

So that has been what's been going on in my little corner of the universe since last I wrote. I have lot's of new material to comb from the cobwebs, organize, and attempt to translate to written word...
