Today I shelved my demons to work on another werewolf story, and my upcoming freebie that I plan to give away Valentine's Day. I haven't given up on the demons, but after finishing the second round, I want to put it down for a week, and go back to it with a fresh perspective. (Now let's hope I can stand to leave the demons alone for that long!)
I got off to a slow start working this morning. Hubby threw me for a loop last night, he came home with a NEW JOB. He got a call while at work, and was offered a position (starting tomorrow) with a company working only four miles from our house.
He's been commuting 2 hours one way to the job he did have - a round trip of about 160 miles per day. Because it's commuting, you can't even take the cost of gas as a tax deduction, and that's about $120 in gas a week. (Jeeps SUCK the gas, I swear.) With this job move, will be pulling about even pay wise, but it's soooo much closer. He'll be able to come home while on lunch break if he wants too.
He went and picked up his tools from the other job this morning, then went in to take the mandatory drug test. They do a mandatory breathalizer test too, which is a first. Hubby and I were joking about this earlier... if they were checking for fried chicken instead of alcohol, he'd have been fired on the spot. :P Basically, he snuck around and bought chicken for breakfast. Mm... *feeling carnivorous*
On his way back, hubby thought of me and picked up a CPK at the Walmart in that area. It's a messy faced baby with bright blond loops. Very cute! I thought that was super sweet of him. He brought home two outfits to go with her. Yep, hubby's won a TON of brownie points with ol' wifey today.
It's been a good day, and already I've managed to write around 2k words. I know this will be trimmed down considerably before I have it made into a .pdf or .lit file. I tend to write in great flowery glops then go back afterward and simplify. To each his own, I guess. ^_^
