The week started on Monday with having to pick up my mother at yet another medical professional's (latest in a series, collect 'em all!) as her health woes continue. The middle included me and Wrenn totally forgetting to do something incredibly important and letting a friend down in a huge way (said friend is ripshit pissed at us, for good reason, as we totally fucked this one up). An edit took me 24 hours longer than it should have, and I'm ridiculously behind where I want to be on my tie-in novel. And Wrenn continues to be unemployed, while Congress continues to not pass the unemployment extension (the passage of which would totally save our asses, financially speaking, though not as much as Wrenn actually getting a job). She's sending out dozens of resumés a week, calling recruiters all the time, and nothing -- and my favorite is the one interview she went on to which the person who did the interview has not responded in any way, shape, or form to any communication since the interview. No rejection, no second interview, no response, no nothing. It's despicable and appalling and unprofessional behavior.
It wasn't all bad. We went to lovely concert at St. Luke in the Fields downtown in which the church choir and a ten-piece orchestra did a lovely rendition of pieces by Buxtehude and Schutz, and today we went to the New York Botanical Gardens to see their orchid show. (Pictures are up on the book of face
This weekend, Wrenn's going down to visit a friend and do his taxes, while I get to hunker down like whoa on the tie-in novel. Also we'll likely see Captain America: The Winter Soldier
on Sunday night.....
What are y'all doing for the weekend?
