So, I'm trying to get back into the swing of working during the day again. And not just writing. Monday I started training for the census job, and the material is not hard, it's just tedious. To cover their butts, the government puts out truckloads of paperwork, hoping you'll get lost in the mess if you try to come back on them for anything. Literally, I have three manuals teaching me how to check addresses, and enter the information into a very basic hand-held computer. It's not rocket science.

The hard part is trying to stay awake during class. It is so, so dry.

Hubby is in Indiana right now, so everything comes down to me. Kids on the bus, training, pick up the kids, take care of the animals, feed the kids and try to catch up on housework. Today I took Annie in to the vet for an all day sugar-check. In addition to everything else.

Then that darn Teresa Reasor went and wrote this awesome book I've been reading when I should be sleeping. It's called Highland Moonlight. I think I got a total of about 4 1/2 hours of sleep last night. Thanks Teresa. ;-p .

Then I keep hoping to eke out just a few more minutes of time to work on an idea I had coming home from the workshop.

Sigh... I'm tired. And then Friday it looks like I'm driving to Louisvile.

I wouldn't know what to do if my life was somewhat normal.


  1. Jennifer, I don't know how you're doing it all, what with the job, the kids, the house, and the animals. Hang in there and keep telling yourself, it's only temporary.

    Teresa will be tickled to know you're enjoying Moonlight so much. :o)

  2. I am enjoying it, but it's frustrating I can't get more read. I keep pulling it out on breaks.
    I feel a little better today, I got some extra sleep last night. Maybe I can go in early and get in a few minutes of reading before class...

  3. Oh, Jennifer--your picture reminds me of myself! Glad you got a little more sleep last night. I have no doubt that you can keep "do it all!"
