Back To Work

It’s official. I have been back to work for a whole week.

I have a very busy classroom this year. My neighborhood kids are on the younger side; only a few have been to preschool before. The others are still getting used to it. By the end of last week they were all falling asleep on their feet.

My special ed. kids are all over the place. They’ll get better in time once they learn the routine and such. I have a girl with Cerebral Palsy so I’ve discovered muscles I didn’t know I had. I’ve been so sore the last few days. My body will get used to that kind of exercise in time, though.

I also started babysitting again. I sit for a family three days a week right after work. I also have two other families I babysit for on occasion. Needless to say, my days are pretty busy.

By the time I get home I’m exhausted. I haven’t been doing too much other than work and babysit.

I’ve been getting my writing, editing, and blogging done in the morning for an hour before work. It’s not as much as the summer, but progress is progress.

I’m still getting my writing/editing done Monday through Thursday and blogging on Friday. However, now I need to get into another new routine now that I have work so I don’t burn myself out.

Writing is going to be a slow process now, but I’m getting the work done.

I miss the summer.

On the upside, I submitted a short story to Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction contest. We’ll see if anything comes from that.
