My boss does not work in this city. Nor this state. She works in
I'm afraid with his insistent bugging, they might realize they don't need me. I don't want that. My husband thinks I should tell the guy not to worry. That I'm okay with the lack of work (I think Mr. B thinks he's doing me a favor, and he would be if I cared!!). I don't know if I want to go that far. Just in case they don't realize what I am doing.
It's because of my lack of work that I'm able to write Book #5. See…what people see is not a bored person, but a person sitting at her desk thinking about the next scene – playing scenarios around in her head.
Yep, I put the book away when work comes in (it's what I'm paid to do), but when there's no work, I write because I just can't hide reading a book, you know? At least writing makes me look busy.
Well, most of the time.
I don't know how I find these jobs. I had the same problem at my last place of employment (except the work they gave me to do I hated, and then add the commute and it became miserable). But there, I was out in the open and probably got caught writing more often then I realized. Here, I'm in an office, so it's not as noticeable. And if they notice and let me go? I'll deal with it.
But this time it's not for a lack of looking for more work (where it was at my last job). I enjoy accounting and don't mind working on spreadsheets and databases (payroll and people are another issue – yuck). We'll see if the workload picks up now that my boss is back from her vacation. Because I really do want to keep the job (sort of, kind of – I want the paycheck).
In other news… I went and saw Dark Shadows on Saturday. A little disappointed. Not because it wasn't good, it was okay, but because I thought it would be more comedic.
I actually read three books in one week. Haven't done that in a long time. Those Stephanie Plum books are a definite fast read – and enjoyable, too. I'm stopping at number 3 for now. Basically, because my husband is on number 4 and also because I want to read some of Lori Foster's work. I'm going to her convention next month (for the second time) and feel I should at least get to know her through her writing!
Plus, I miss the romances. I need a recharge!
Have a Happy Tuesday!
