Two jobs can get in the way of stuff

If only the office looked like that and I had those clothes!
I'll have to quit if Margo makes me wear one of those hats-:)
While neither of these pics is an exact representation:  My boss at the day job isn't a meanie like the Meryl Streep character in DevilWears Prada, but the subtleties needed to manage some of the high profile people we deal with remind me of this job.  And my sister is a MUCH better cook than Lucy (thank god we don't do chocolates), sometimes our days seem a little Ethel and Lucyesque.
However you look at it, I'm working two jobs for a bit.  My former boss needed a fill-in for my old position (the woman hired to replace me is gone - long story).  I love my old boss who is actually my friend, so of course, I agreed. 
I usually leave one place to go to the other, so I'm busy seven days a week for now.  I imagine I'll wrap up the old job in another month, just in time for the Christmas season at the tea room.
I miss posting on here, but I have been so darn busy and it's all I can do to do the stuff that needs to happen to keep life going.  And did I mention, our Cub Scout treasurer went AWOL and I'm now doing that too???? 
I'll be back soon.

2 jobs, plus Cub Scouts PLUS life can get in the way of anything literary. :)

What?! Arlee-eene!! What happened to fitting time in for yourself? Dude, you have GOT to learn to say "no."

Please don't work yourself sick.

Dolly, I can actually HEAR your voice after all these years! Yes, I know "me" time. But don't worry, it's only for a while and then I'll be back to my regular schedule.

Margaret, I can barely write a sentence these days without my mind wandering off to something else I "need" to do!
