Hello any readers out there! Checking in after another period of week-long silence. This sparser posting schedule is going to be the norm for the beginning of this year unfortunately. My work commute has lengthened thus making my weeknights very short, and many times I do not have the energy/time to cobble together a review. I hope to use my weekends for writing posts in advance, but that won’t always work out. I am reconciled to the fact that I just have a ‘slow’ blog for the time being. (Not that it was ever a daily blog.)
In commute-related news, some of you may have heard about the winter storm that wreaked havoc on the Washington D.C. traffic this past Wednesday evening. Yeah, I was in that mess. What should have been an hour-long commute turned into eight and half excruciating hours stuck in my car. Most of that was spent with my car in park on the Beltway. I had a book with me but was far too keyed up to read it. I called people, listened to the radio reports, and devoured an apple that I luckily had leftover in my lunch bag. I saw lightning a number of times, as well as cars and trucks abandoned or spun out on the road. At 12:45 am, I finally made it home – exhausted and upset – but safe.
So that is some of what is going on in my life. I hope to have some more reviews up in the next few days, so keep a look-out!
