Random Thoughts: The Small Updates Edition

1. I finally finished Season 3 of Sons of Anarchy, and thank goodness. This season of the show was *really* a slog. Tara and Jackson’s whole will-they-or-won’t-they; Tara’s whole will-she-or-won’t-she (nice touch at the clinic: Opie’s girl uses the name Sarah Palin); and the awful, terrible, no good Belfast storyline. Subtitle: “Where’s my boy?” Gah!

Neat season finale though. Nicely tied up all the loose ends.

Onto Season 4!

2. I downloaded a Wally Lamb book (We Are Like Water) to read — and I can’t get into it. And I love Wally Lamb; I’ve read just about everything he’s published. But I just can’t penetrate this one. Maybe I need a hard copy rather than an e-book.

I am also somewhat distracted from Lamb because I’ve discovered Liane Moriarty. I finished Big, Little Lies recently, and I’ve already downloaded The Husband’s Secret. New author! Yay!

Also see: SOA.

3. While I am still looking for a new job (and thank you to everyone who has sent me leads), I would like to report on something my employer has done right. I requested to work from home one day a week, and starting April 1, I will be doing just that. Huge relief. I will have one day a week to concentrate on major writing projects or metadata without dealing with the open office environment.

It’s pretty huge. Yay, employer!

This is the view from my desk in the mornings. It's so bright, I have to wear shades.

It doesn’t get much better than that.
