the end of a shitty week
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.

Sigh.

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?

*groks*

My week was crappy (not shitty because it just wasn't dramatic enough) due to work headaches and heavy call load; I was/looked fried by the end of Thursday. Just treated myself, because I earned a treat, dammit: a theater-pub's showing the 1978 Drunken Master. And whoa, that film makes me WANT TO EAT. *grins* I'm better now. Now to get better more. (...um, sorry about that grammar.)

I hope The Mom feels better soon. As for what I'm doing this weekend, I'm doing what I do every weekend. Planning my escape from Oregon.

This week saw yet another visit to the dentist, and finally some lessening of pain from the tooth extraction back on 3/12. Still dealing with surprising emotional after effects from family news last month (March can totally go hang).

Today I'm going to a Fiber Festival down in Sanford with a friend!

There's no way I can answer that question without sounding like I am entering a top the Shitty Week contest.

The Beetle is going in the shop on Monday.

The transmission, which has been flaky for four months, found new and interesting fail modes yesterday. I was advised to drive it until it failed. And it has. And now it's going to get a rebuild.

The good news is, it will be better when it's all done.

Well, until I have the brakes redone. Which also needs to be done. Oh, and replace the windshield, because that got cracked this winter thanks to falling ice.

This winter was hell.
