Let’s pretend I’m waving to everyone, shall we? How have y’all been? I feel as if I’ve been absent for too long from the blogging world. I know I’ve had posts pop up, but I haven’t been actively reading and commenting like I normally try to do. Life just keeps getting in the way – by making me sick over and over again. Not fun.
I think for the first time in my life allergies have actually become a thing. I have been nearly bedridden for the past week or so with aches, fevers, chills, stuffiness, and just general feel badly-ness. I’ve been sleeping non-stop and still resemble something a Mack truck ran over several times. Hoping for all this pollen to disappear soon. Like yesterday.
In worse news, my job is going to not exist soon. Yep, after finally finding something back in December, I’m going to be jobless again. Because that is my life. Filled with all the bad luck. So back to the drawing board I go. Hoping to find something by the end of May. I hate when investors back out of deals and all the new people are no longer needed. Shitty is shitty.
On the geekery front, I’ve been reading a bunch of Edith Wharton this weekend and will spend most of this week continuing that theme to prepare for Sunday’s book club meeting. I love her so much. Expect some Edith-centric posts soon. I also finished Me Before You and have things to say. Spoiler alert: I cried the ugly cry.
Might also throw up some movie reviews. Loved End of Watch and Gone Baby, Gone. Red Dawn – not so much.
And finally – Happy 4/15 any accountants who might be reading! I know that tax accountants are still going to have a rough day, but all the auditors will be partying tonight (including my husband). Time to let it down and get back to having a life!
P.S. Lots of people have been reading the blog lately and subscribing. Thanks for visiting and I’d love to hear from y’all in the comments!!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about the general feelings of poopiness, and the loss of your job. I know what it’s like, and I offer my condolences and prayers. I am glad that you are reading Wharton! I read a bunch of her books before I began blogging, and she has such a tremendous style. I will be curious to find out which ones you have read. If you want a really good book to take you out of your bad mood, and transport you somewhere else that is weird and entirely captivating (and scary) look for Amity and Sorrow. I am in the middle right now, and loving it!! I think it comes out today, but I got it on Netgalley just over the weekend. Take care over there!!
The whole situation sucks but looking forward to new opportunities! Thanks for the book rec – I’ve added it to my TBR and have heard so many great things about it.
I agree with Heather. Totally weird and so, so good.
Will definitely be reading it!
Sorry to hear about your job–what a bummer! I’m still waiting to hear about whether mine is going to be made permanent or if I’m still on a temporary contract…forever, it feels like. Best of luck to you with the job hunt and good reading in the meantime.
I found this news out a week after learning my position was finally permanent! I hope you get good news soon.
Ugh to the job news. Hope this gets resolved soon.
sorry about the job disappearing; oh crap!
Thanks! It’ll work itself out, I’m sure.
So nice to have our books, no matter what!
