This is just to say hello and let you all know I'm still upright. This has been a painfully busy week because next week is a bit of a holiday/vacation. Today will be particularly tough-- I have 5 stories to write, and a bad case of the "doIhaftas." Yes, I hafta. Funny, isn't it, how multiplying tasks can diminish one's desire to do any of them? I mean, if I just had one story to write, no problem. Even two. Making it four is tough, but when you get to five, well! That's when it becomes just a plain ol' royal pain.
I won't get any sympathy from anyone and I'm not really looking for any. We all have crappy things that we have to do from time to time. It's just the way things are. But just allow me a moment to verbalize this: I am somewhat grouchy about basically working full time for something less than 25 percent of what I'd be paid (not mentioning benefits) if I were working as a fulltime employee. Again, for now, that's just the way it is. But it is inequitable. And I don't know how much longer I can maintain this imbalance.
OK. Enough. Back to the keyboard. See you later after I pound out my work.
