Writing Has Suffered Lately

My writing has, unfortunately, been suffering lately. This has been due to the fact that it has been a busy few months. Seeing as my last post on here was on July 29th, maybe it is time to update you all on what has been going on.

Well in May, I found a part-time job doing housekeeping. Throughout the summer it was fairly busy with a whopping 65 hours in July. For most people that might not seem like a lot, but for me and my small family of three it was a HUGE change. I had been without work for quite some time and the children were used to me being home all the time. When I found this job, I had to let the boss know that any problems at home might mean me not working. I was really worried about how my daughter, in particular, was going to react to me working. So far, I am very happy with her reaction to my job has been positive but then I am home before they get home from school. I think that the fact that I am home before they are helps to alleviate the tension that has been present while I was working full-time jobs.

With working, birthday parties (always fun for me), Thanksgiving and Halloween (another fun one for me), it has been really busy. Work is starting to slow down which means more time at home for me, so I have been planning a Halloween Party for the 30th and slowly starting to get Christmas stuff organized. I know that there are still 2 months until Christmas but it takes me some time to get things organized and lists wrote up. I lucked out and was able to buy some things for my children through the school but the main things are getting bought in town through a small toy store.

I have to get the Halloween decorations up the night of as my cats decide to help me take everything down as fast as I put it up. Now that you have an idea of what I have been up to (and this is just the tip of the iceberg), I hope that everyone on here has been staying busy.

I'm glad to hear your part-time work hasn't had a negative impact on your family. I would think that the additional earnings must add to the household over all. It's good to read you again. : )

Nice to see you here again. Work does have its drawbacks doesn't it? At least the extra income partially compensates for the disruption to family life.

Glad to hear that your job is working out well. Sometimes, our lives just get pretty busy that writing must be put to the side.

Glad that you were able to find some work. :) Life does get in the way of our writing at times.

I know our jobs and chores take precedent over the writing here. Glad to see you here.

I have been like that too. I feel that summer days are more relaxed and you have more time to do things but once August comes around suddenly it gets super busy! Glad to see you getting back into writing on here though!
