Pins and Needles

Last Friday, my co-worker and I were talking about literature.  I told her that I write Young Adult books, and she said that she loves YA, as does her 13 year old daughter.  She asked if I’d be willing to let her read it.  It was perfect!  They are my target audience.  Of course I’d …

Do It! Do It NOW!!

You know me and my plans.  I had fully intended to have a do-nothing weekend.  I’ve been pushing myself so hard for the past few months, hardly ever taking time to rest.  I’m pushing myself to the point that my body is rebelling, so I’ve started backing off a bit, but I still have so …

Temps Don’t Have Feelings

At least, that’s what I’m trying to convince myself that my co-worker believes. I want to start by apologizing.  I know I said no more downer blogs, but I really just need to get this out. I have previously blogged about the poor treatment I’m receiving as a temp (excluded from lunch to which everyone …

The Calm Between the Interesting

My life is blissfully uneventful.  I like it that way. And then I remember my past.  I also liked the interesting stuff.  I miss the interesting stuff, but it seems like I can’t have interesting stuff without drama.  I’m going to need to figure out how to have one without the other. Today, I was thinking about …

Turning it Around

Today was a rough day for me.  A massive, horrible thing happened.  Luckily, it wasn’t a surprise, so I was able to handle it with as much grace as I could, given the situation. I was still a mess! But I survived.  I have my loved ones around to love and support me, which was a …

A Blog About Nothing

So often, as I’m going through my day, I think, “I could blog about this tonight.”  And by the time I get home, I sit here, looking at an empty blog page, not having anything to blog about.  It’s so frustrating! This is where my mother would tell me that I should just pull out …

Migrant Worker

My first day at my new job was last Friday. On Monday, a young man also began his employment there. Yesterday, a man came by, (jokingly) offended and shocked that the department in which we work hadn’t given him a banner, welcoming him to the group. Today, he approached the new guy with the same …

It’s the Little Things

Today is my birthday! Happy birthday to me! What am I doing? Sitting home alone, eating alone, going to bed alone. And it’s okay.  Actually, I’m enjoying myself. My son is at practice, which means I can eat whatever I want for dinner. Coconut shrimp and sweet potatoes! Woo-hoo! Since he doesn’t like those things, …

My Birthday Celebration

My birthday is tomorrow.  With everyone’s schedules, yesterday was the only day we all had to get together to celebrate.  My mother asked how I wanted to spend my day, and what I wanted to do was enjoy a dining exerience.  At first, I thought of a Japanese steak house where they cook in front …

First Day

So, the first day at a new job is never a good example of what the rest of the days will be like, right? Not sure if that’s good or bad. Today was my first day with a new company. I started out by …..    …….    ………… waiting. They didn’t have any login information for …
