I've shared on Facebook, but if you haven't seen this yet, here's the link to last Sunday's episode (the fourth one). We're hard at work on number five!

|Just like regular people|
I see a lot of evidence that other, much more prolific, bloggers are calling it quits, and I think I understand their reasons. Nobody should feel required to blog (that's the main difference between blogging and working), and we essentially write our own "rules", and for the most part, we don't get paid, which makes it easier to quit. For me, a rather small-time writer with no sponsors or much of a fan base, blogging is like reading a book--I just feel SO MUCH BETTER when I have a book in progress, or when I've just published a post. But then all the YOU REALLY SHOULD BE WORKING feelings flood in and I don't do either one. My only [self-imposed] obligation is to be "readable"--whether that means funny, or insightful, or helpful. I just want others to like what I write, and to come back for more. And if all I am is a great big saddo, on-screen and off, I'm not particularly readable. I wouldn't read One-Note-Wanda's serial of endless pathos, would you?

We'll really try to get the recap out every week (barring a sudden worsening of our mutual despair) and I intend to get a non-Downton post finished from time to time, until things shake out one way or another. I miss it, and it makes me feel better, and I know you want to see more pictures of the cats.
It also makes me feel better that it was Lillian, and not me, who was trying restlessly to nap after another night of sadsomnia, and spilled a tumbler of "whinin' wine" in her bed, on all the freshly laundered sheets and blankets and down the side onto the carpet. Sippy cups. Just saying.
