Celebrating The Small Things
With Friday comes another installment of VikLit's weekly bloghop, Celebrating The Small Things. (Click on the link for a complete list of participants)
The rules are simple. Mostly because there aren't any. The point is to share your achievements from the past week. No success is too small, which is good because that's the only kind I've got.
Anyway, here's what I'm celebrating this week:
—I did not kill anybody at my day job. It's truly amazing how ridiculous things have gotten at The Store. Just...epic-ly ridiculous. I've worked in retail a long, long time now, and each and every place had its own special brand of stupid shenanigans, but The Store has truly taken the cake. I spent much of the last week looking like this:
—On my one day off this week, I spent a pleasant day at the beach with my mother and my niece. I never get to spend enough time with them, so I was thrilled by the opportunity. Plus, the snack shack had fried dough. And I love fried dough.
—My current WIP is presently sitting at 126,571 words. I'm still waaaaaaaaaay behind where I was hoping to be this month (stupid day job), but I have knocked out some scenes that were giving me trouble, meaning I think I may have (knock on wood and hope I haven't just jinxed myself) solved that big plot problem that's been plaguing me since, you know, time began or whatever. Here's hoping I can continue my slow crawl toward whatever's supposed to happen next in this monster of a novel.
So that's going to do it for me today. What might you be celebrating this week?
As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. And since you'll not be at The Store's staff meeting this Sunday, I'm certain you will.
