I read a lot of blogs where the authors are more than gainfully employed, and I have to say I don't know how they manage to blog so much, stay employed, and (often times) stay married. Lord knows, given the week I've had so far, if I had given the Iconic Midwest half of the time I did over the summer I'd be having some serious difficulties. (As it is now I'm blogging this in a spare 15 minutes before I go teach my next class.)
It must be said, I've never been noted for the stellar manner in which I budget my time (I watch baseball for crying out loud), but even without that particular personal defect I'd be failing to keep this place interesting.
In the meantime, I'm waiting to hit my groove. It could happen any year now.
