It seems that Sundays are the only days I can actually find time to sit and post a blog. Or maybe it is that I just don't have anything of interest to blog about on a daily basis? Yes, that is probably more accurate.
Well, today is really no exception. I felt weird all day having stayed in bed until about 9am. Even now, 11 hours later, I am still trying to wrap my head around why on Earth I would stay in bed so late. It wore on me all day and I felt like I would get nothing done. Well, I did get the work I wanted to get done for work. The problem? The task I had set for myself was to print up an 'employee handbook' of sorts. I got it all typed out, went downstairs to print it all out, and pulled out pages of blurry, spotty nonsense. No ink in the printer!
[The above entry was started Sunday. I then ran out of time, as I needed to make dinner and then my day was over. Time for bed so that I could be awake to go into Day 3 of training my new co-worker. I will just continue on with today...Monday...]
My new help is working out great. She's a joy to have around, she works hard and she is nice to customers. She catches on quickly and I like talking to her.
Hubby and I are all set to take an extended weekend getaway to Akron, Ohio during the first weekend in May. We have not had a proper vacation in over 3 years, but are in need of some time far away from our jobs and responsibilities. So, we are spending a couple days with his parents. I am looking forward to it, especially now that I know my shifts will be covered without causing too much grief for others. I can tell you, though, that it will be very difficult to return to work.
I have decided that with my extra day off during the week I am going to be better about things that I let fall to the wayside. My hope was to be able to promote my etsy shop a lot more, and that would mean, also, that I could spend more time with my blog. I would love to make it more interesting and, oh I don't know, get a few more readers?? I come across such great things while I am killing time between chores, and I want to be able to explore these things more deeply and then share them with others. It is my hope that I can focus my energies on these things, which in turn should inspire me in my own work.
Step one: get downstairs to clean and organize that studio!!
