My Apologies...

It is absolutely necessary that I start this blog post with an apology, because what is to follow is undoubtedly influenced by what you see here. I'm fully aware that the image of me at the computer is a pathetic one, but this is my life, day after day, week after week, FROZEN ETERNITY AFTER FROZEN ETERNITY!!! (By the way, what do you get when you cross Iowa and February? The most beautiful landscape hell ever froze over...). You know their is something wrong with your locale when cats and birds start living together...Anyway, because I have been trapped in my little garett for the past several months and because it is so cold and because my dissertation seems impossible to write and because I can't imagine that I will ever get a job given the downturn in an already horrendous job market, the posts that follow are all a little bleary...I've tried to take the edge off (especially for the last new post), but I'm not making any promises...things are just a little too frosty right now and warmer thoughts will undoubtedly emerge with spring.

Hang in there, pal. The sun will come out tomorrow--that's a song. It's not actually going to come out tomorrow. In fact, I think it's supposed to snow. Sorry, I'm not much of a help.

Oh, Adam, I feel your pain looking at the dissertation writing picture! It WILL get done and you WILL get a job at some point!! Yay that you're blogging again, though.

I'm not sure you can really grasp an Iowa winter if you haven't lived through one. Wish we could come over and bug you while you're trying to work.

It's about time we hear from you!! We miss you guys so much and I feel like this is the only way to feel involved! I am loving the new pictures though.....I really want to come visit. I have a free plane ticket that needs to be used by April 24th, so I am talking it over with the boss man. Give those kids kisses, we love you!

Wow, you actually have more books stacked around your computer than I do. You must be wicked smart.
