Flings self into room
Hey there, everyone! Everyone? Anyone? Anyone still here?!?
Okay, okay, listen. Let me explain. Okay, let me sum up. YES, I vanished for a couple months, but I swear, I’m fine. No bin, no drama, nothing like that at all. I promise. I just got a job (I KNOW!) I got a retail job and oh, my beloved squirrels, it has been kicking my ASS. So in the interest of keeping said job, we’ll just call it “The Store” and leave it at that, okay? It’s a store. I wear a name tag. I’m a register wrangler. It’s pretty okay for the most part, I mean, it’s the first gig I’ve had in about 10 years, so I’m pretty pleased with myself that I haven’t quit for two whole months, but that’s neither here nor there.
The big thing is that I wasn’t writing because I was doing other things. Like writing! I KNOW! I write weekly for A Madison Mom as their style editor and I’ve kept THAT job too! That’s two jobs! And I still help out with Small and Tiny whenever I am needed there, but that’s not a job. That’s a heaping helping of love, that’s what that is.
So I’ve been busy! And most of it is really good. I like doing customer service, and helping people, and chatting up customers, etc. Who knew that the same Banshee who wouldn’t leave her apartment for weeks at a time would have a job where she talks to and helps people all day? Not me, that’s for sure. Not that it’s all sunshine and roses. Sometimes the store is crowded and people are mean and we’re understaffed and over-scheduled and oh goddo the holidays are coming and HELP! But mostly it’s good.
Also I went to Disney World AND Harry Potter World, and it was insanely awesome, but that’s a post for another day. I got a wand. Holy crap, it was the best.
So anyhoodle, I wanted to tell y’all I’m sorry for up and vanishing AGAIN, but can you believe it was for something good and not horrible??? I KNOW! I’m really going to work on getting back to the blog more often when I’m not working working working, because I do love it, and I love y’all. Uh, y’all are still here, right???
