Can you believe we're starting the third month of the new year already? Where does time go anymore?
I completed my first critique since last year yesterday. Man, did that feel so good. By the ninth of this month I will have my first beta read of the year completed!!! Yes, I'm excited, I've been waiting on this story to hit the public for a few years now :) Hint hint Fiona Riplee ;)
This week is a busy one and with us making up for a smaller crew at work it got even busier. However, it's not going to stop us from having a great time this week. One of my coworkers and I are hosting a Pure Romance party this week. So in between work, writing, and house cleaning, it is going to be a great start to a new month.
I have to give a shout out here to my wonderful coworkers. I've worked at places in the past where my coworkers seemed more like family than just coworkers, but this place not only has that small town feel to it, but the coworkers care for one another just like family. There is so much care and concern for one another within this work place that it is refreshing. When a crisis hits, everyone pulls together. It doesn't just fall on one person, everyone pitches in like a team to see us through the rough spots.
Last night I took an extra shift. I'd been there since noon. I wouldn't be going home until after eight. Not just one but two coworkers were so concerned about making sure I ate that one offered to go get me something to eat and the other didn't even bother asking, she said, "You need to eat so my husband is bringing us food."
Why does something this simple touch my heart? Because every day I witness so much self-centered behaviors that when someone does something like this it rebuilds my faith that there are still good kind-hearted people in this world. I just happen to work with several of them. :)
Speaking of work, I probably should get prepared for my day. We have truck today and hopefully that will go smoothly ;)
Everyone have a great day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
