I've had a recent career shift which has changed my life. I'm working in a veterinary clinic. The money is shit but the job is awesome. It's the first time in a very long time that I've actually had a job that keeps me busy all day, makes me laugh most of the day and feel good at the end of the day.
So that's all a wonderful change from what my life had been the last few years.
Mollie and I have adjusted to Hawaii (I love living here) and are still adjusting to living as a blended family. For the most part it's pretty okay but living with another adult woman with her own set of mood swings is always a challenge. The funny thing is that I'm the adult woman in the house who acts the most rationally and the least emotionally. Now that's a huge switch up in my life.
I'm taking a romance reading break. I'm reading the Hit Man series by Lawrence Block which I read a lifetime ago. I'm enjoying it and it's like sitting and watching TV while eating Cheetos. No real substance but you still enjoy it and feel rested and satisfied later.
My writer's block is unblocked. Somewhat.
There was something about Jane Litte admitting to being Jen Frederick that turned a switch in my head. I can't explain it but I was in my car and wrestling with my feelings and I suddenly had an idea that became a thunderbolt. And I started writing.
Of course I have to rewrite it all since I'm changing a huge part of it but still, I'm writing.
So Carolyn and I did free book giveaways on Amazon over the weekend and I have to say that it wasn't worth it at all. Smallest amount of downloads I've ever done with a free book and it was responsible (I think) for only one book sale.
So not worth it.
And Survivor is having an interesting season. They have some of the most unlikable players they've ever had and I'm not rooting for anyone. Except kind of, a little bit, one cute guy who won't go far. I'm still hooked but with so many unpleasant people, it's more an intellectual exercise than a true experience.
