Well in true J.J. Devine fashion I've changed up my story for The Lake House and I'm behind on my newsletter. However, I'm hopeful to get the newsletter done and out by the end of the week.
My insane work schedule did two things. One it exhausted this old body switching from all night shifts back to early morning shifts. Two, it threw my creative juices back into full light :) I just have a little more than a thousand words to go on my Lake House story. YAY!!!
Trying to push the mark with two full time jobs is really confusing sometimes, but it does have it's advantages :) Such as those weeks where I do switch up my normal and then the creative juices come alive in full force. However, the downfall to that is also trying to live real life and still maintaining two full time jobs. Sometimes things suffer a bit such as my housework.
So today after work one of my main goals is to clean my messy kitchen. That poor room has suffered more than any of the rooms in my house, sadly. I made cupcakes for my oldest granddaughter's birthday party for Saturday morning. Cute little things, rainbows with pots of gold at the end of them :) She is after all a St. Patty's Day baby :) So instead of a clown at her birthday party, we had a leprechaun :) It was wonderful.
This week the boss is on vacation and I am determined that we will handle the store the best we can. So far we've already had a week long call off due to this nasty flu bug in our area. I wasn't sure we would be able to handle things there but we did manage it with minor issues :) We're already down two people for this week but thankfully we're close knit with another store in our area and managed to fill all our spaces.
Ahhhh, such is life...
I am truly excited about my new story. It is one I've been toying with for awhile. I have the beginning and know how it will end. So it is just the middle I have to finish up :) The newsletter is coming along, but still needs to have all it's parts put down on the newsletter itself. So things are pushing forward I just have to get it done. I am off tomorrow and plan to take my laptop with me on a road trip with hubby to Kentucky to work on both the newsletter and my story. This was I don't lose time on my writing job :)
Well it is that time again. I need to get ready for my day!!!
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
