Too much work, not enough reward

Unforgettable may not have been her finest
work, but far be it from me to ever avoid
an excuse to post a Rosario Dawson pic.

As I continue to work my way back to a regular writing / editing / blogging schedule, I feel it's time to break down some of the walls between real life and the magical faerie world of the internet. After last week's post, I am going to continue my look at my own life on a weekly or biweekly post. So let's get into what's been up lately.

It was something of a hell week at my primary job with about ten hours of overtime collected there on top of my regular sixteen hour side job at the bookstore. The kids went back to school on Wednesday with a bunch of half days which sent my sleeping schedule completely out of wack as well. Coupled with the final move of everything from storage into the new house and it was just too much all at once.

I ended up feeling like rotten skunk garbage by Sunday afternoon. My already troubled left ankle gave out on me and so I ended up missing a night of work. But I'm mending now as I hopefully move into a couple of easier weeks with Labor Day approaching.

Sadly, all that business didn't leave much time to do anything. I finally watched Logan and caught the weird Rosario Dawson / Katherine Heigl film Unforgettable, and I read an old Super Spy graphic novel by Matt Kindt. None were bad, but I didn't think any of them were really as good as I hoped they would be. That was most of the limited free time I had available to me in the week, but I've got several other novels, graphic novels and movies to work my way through in the next few days.

I did get a bit more editing done on the current projects. I'm moving forward nicely with Teel James Glenn's Gunmaster with Dino Force waiting in the wings. I've still not sat down to get quite as into my own writing as I would like, but hopefully in the next few days I'll start that process flowing as well.

With that said, I've got way too much work to do, so let's get on with it!
