A co-worker stopped me today to chat for a moment. He told me that it must be amazing to have a job like mine since I get to do what I love for a living. "It must be like heaven!" he said.

That made me stop and think.

I must say that this is probably one of the least-stressful jobs I've had. And I like it. I like being able to write and edit all day, and when the clock hits 5 p.m., I can go home and forget about work until tomorrow. Even better, I still want to write after I've taken care of supper and settled the kids down for the night.

It's rather strange how God works. He always seems to know where to put me, even when I don't think I should be there. This job is good for me right now - I'm learning and growing in my writing and in my friendships.

I didn't get any writing done last night. Went and bought groceries instead - by myself. This is an accomplishment in itself because a) I didn't buy any junk food like hubby is VERY fond of doing and b) because we actually have food in our house to make MEALS, not snacks.

This morning I visited my old boss at the state archives and got to dig amongst some historical photos again - always fun - and tonight I have my chapter RWA meeting. I'm presenting a program on pacing tonight with one of the other gals.

After tonight, things will settle down for a bit - but not much. Our writing workshop is coming up next month and we've got tons to do for that.

I may try to get a bit of writing done tonight after my meeting - if I'm not asleep by the time I get home!


  1. Grocery shopping by yourself is bliss. Can I try it, please?

    Good luck with the meetings! Our local chapter is and hour and a half away, and with the price of gas... ugh.

  2. Wow--that's busy!! I Love shopping on my own, time to buy what you actually want :)

  3. Historical photos are so much fun to look at. I love imagining their stories... :)

  4. I far from love my job, but it serves its purposes. I show up, they pay me, it's close enough I can get 2 hours of writing done in the morning before I have to leave. Hope you're pacing session went well!

  5. Oooooh - digging through historical photos is so much fun. Lucky you :-)

    Hope the session on pacing went well - I'm sure it did!
