Hey there, everyone. I almost didn't post tonight, but I haven't been on here in a few days. Well, actually, I -have- been on here, I just didn't make any posts of my own. I did respond to a few comments and commented on other posts the other day. I meant to post yesterday, but posting/blogging anywhere just wasn't in the cards. I spent Saturday morning/afternoon at the mall with my older sister, brother-in-law and their kids. The kiddies saw Santa at the Bass Pro Shop, and took part in a few other Christmas activities. I also picked up a gift card for my brother-in-law since he loves that store lol. We walked around the mall for a bit, and then came home... and I crashed for a while. I was so tired lol. I didn't do anything else except finish up my Christmas cards/packages and watch "A Muppet Christmas Carol" with my younger sister. I didn't do anything on Sunday, except walk to the store and watch Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. The week in general has been business as usual, but I do have a few plans for tomorrow and Friday. I'm going to the post office tomorrow, and the cemetery to visit my late-Father on Friday. Right now I am working on one more assignment before hitting the hay. Work is somewhat slowing down for one of the clients I write for, but it also picked back up a bit for another client, so that works haha. I am starting to wind down, so I am going to wrap this up so I can finish working and get some shut eye. I hope everyone is doing well. :)

It is a busy time of year for a lot of people. I should probably get my butt in gear (no decorations, no gifts purchased), but I just don't have it in me.

I'm sorry. :-/ You could always try ordering online, at least then you can shop from home.

@tammys85 Finally wrote a list yesterday, a pathetic list. Tonight I got all the decorations out and up. It's just up to hubby to put the tree up and I guess I have to decorate it because no one else wants to do it.

@patgalca I doubt the list is pathetic, especially if it's helping you out or whatnot. I'm sorry, but look at it as something fun, and YOU can decorate it the way YOU want. :)

It seems like you have had some good days though you were not able to spend time in mylot. Hope you'll finish your assignment soon.

Thank you so much! I do want to try to get on here more, just babysitting/writing keeps me busy, and then you gotta add in the Christmas stuff with it. :)

@tammys85 Yes, babysitting alone already makes you very busy, and you have more work than that.

@kaka135 Oh yeah, especially today. That kid wore me out lol. I didn't write today, but that has nothing to do with him.

The life of a freelance writer always has it's ups and down. I hope you are keeping busy but not too busy.

Oh definitely! You just gotta keep moving forward. I realized that if I can pick up the pieces after losing my client of three years, then if work does slow down....I got this. :)

@tammys85 I have been freelancing for tine years and sometimes things go very well. Sometimes things are slow. I have decided, to do a little more than just the writing because, it has become an overpacked market.

I'm back and forth myself. I'm trying to write a bit more often, but that doesn't always work. Right now, I have about three things to share, but I don't want to do them all in one day, and I'll probably not do any for a bit anyway. We'll see if I get at it a bit later or not since I have the night off.

When it comes to MyLot and Persona Paper, some days are busier than others. I do what I can though. You can always write about your day, thoughts, etc. I know I don't like to force it; and write when I am in the mood.

At least, you got a dollar so that helps a lot.

You mean on here? Yep, I'm almost to $2. I probably would have gotten there if I were more active, but sometimes the babysitting/writing keeps me busy. Thanks!

At least you are having some steady work, which is good.

Thank you! It's definitely relieving, and the work varies from product descriptions to real estate/home living. So my brain doesn't always feel like it's gonna melt lol.

I hope you continue to enjoy Holiday prep with family and friends. It's been quiet here the last few days regardless so you've not missed out much.
