One does not simply become a famous writer! It takes many hours before the sun comes up and even more when the sun sets. I am never sure what world I am living in, the one that I am writing about or reality.
My journey back to corporate America.
Friends! What a journey into the real world of a 9-5 job! Culture shock! I am the first to admit that my last two jobs were, in fact, 'work from home', in the sense that I did travel- but my home base was my home office, and all of my supplies were haphazardly placed in my garage. My coffee pot was 17 steps away, I didn't have to share a bathroom, and I sometimes worked in my PJs.
The Last Train Stop...
Metal clanging against metal reverberated through the air. After waking up with a start, Katie quickly closed her eyes against the blinding light. For a moment, she lay still, trying to get her bearings, but all she heard was a slight hum of movement. Where was she?
War has been declared against my dyer!
I have terrible luck with washing machines and dryers. Choosing between the $250.00 tried-and-true and basic model or the $1,300.00 model that does all the folding, putting away, and washing for you is up to you. No matter what- they'll only last about a year in my house. The most recent victims have been around for about a year. I realized four months ago that I had to run my loads through the dry cycle three times before they were dry. The lavender and vanilla in the dryer sheets could not conceal the musty smell by then.
Was I the issue?
The adventure continues... For all of you that are keeping track, I am now up to 65 applications submitted. Five rejection notifications, three interviews for one position-not selected, and one interview today for a company and position I really want, leaving 58 possibilities open.
