This is a post to acknowledge that I haven't posted in a while.

I've been revising my book manuscript and enjoying my summer vacation. With my husband back from his
long absence and my kid home for the summer, it's been very pleasurable. A little course planning here,
a little heavy reading there, a zombie movie or two...you know, the usual summer stuff. We've discovered a local
beach and we're going to the minor league team here, trying belatedly to make this place feel like home now that we've been here four years. I've still not made any friends, but I have people to say hello to when I run into them at the YMCA,
and I have pleasant coworkers. And of course I get to stay in touch with a lot of my former classmates and
colleagues at other institutions. Still, I'm lonely and bored a lot of the time. Which accounts for the blog habit.
(Hey, there, SimNashville! Shout out to y'all.)

When the school year starts, I'll get back to blogularity.

Glad you're following me to the new blog location. I'm sorry (so belatedly) to read about your father and your feeling of being friendless where you live. My father's death rocked my world. And I've now been in Memphis 4 years and am just beginning to feel like I have friends.

It's nice to see you're back.

I'm worried about finding friends in NewTown, especially since my husband will have already been there for a year and established himself.
