I think it's taken having a weekend in order to fully get back in the swing of things. Some things, of course, were necessary to jump in again with both feet (like, um, mothering), but on things like catching up on my Reader, writing...well, they've taken a bit longer.
There are also some things I'm reading where I'm not commenting, either because I have too much or nothing at all to say on the subject. I'll probably find my commenting mojo sooner. Or later. We'll see.
I have a new blog in my Reader where I most likely will not be commenting: The White House. I love that!
My latest post is up at LA Moms.
I think I'm experiencing some post-vacation depression. Depression is too strong a word, but you know what I mean.
I'm pissed about the state of CA's budget affairs. I understand the blame to the legislature, but at the same time, they came to a budget compromise a while back, and the Governator vetoed it so it doesn't seem right that he's not getting more of the blame. I also think I have to place a call or email to tell the Governator how stupid I think it is that they're planning on shutting down government offices every other Friday rather than another day of the week. People who work part-time or 4-day work-weeks are more likely to use Friday as a personal business day, or, in the case of Parks and Rec, a day to visit state parks. This will interfere with more people's lives than it should if it's kept to Friday. Also, I'm going to be getting an IOU rather than my state tax refund. Lovely.
That's it. That's all I've got.
