At A Glance: Month Of October

Blogging News

So this month has been quite crazy and haven’t been able to spend as much time on the blog as I would have liked. I moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the first couple of weeks were a bit rough. My new boss, not willing to work with what I needed. As far as hours or availability. Then the apartment I moved in was in a very ghetto area, (which I knew was a possibility). So I got two new jobs which has been fun. I found a part time office job (which will turn full time soon) and pays more part time than my full time job so I gave my notice. Then drive for Lyft in the evenings. –Which has been great for getting to know the city. But boy has it been a wild adventure so far. I spent some time yesterday in Fort Worth….and am fairly positive that its the place I will end up living. Plus I had a cup of the BEST coffee I have ever had there, so I just need to live closer hehe   I just loved the feeling I had there, more more laid back and down to earth. I can’t wait to put my boots on and do some good ole’ two stepping.  No fun plans for Halloween though, since I can make twice as much if I drive. I have been exploring the local libraries here, and even though I like it, I miss my old library so much. I didn’t have to travel across the city to get one book hehe Yeah its going to take some time to get used to a different process. But for the most part I am loving it here. I was able to meet up with Melissa over at Lily Element Blog, and got to attend a author signing at B&N….and got to talk with some great authors. Jill Shalvis, Codi Gary (love her….she has such a bubbly personality), J.D. Tyler, Emily March, Charis Michaels, D.D. Ayres and a few others!! So fun too meeting a fellow blogger and she is such a sweetheart, and I can’t wait to get to know her more. Now as far as the blog, I have been trying to get as much done as I have been able to. This upcoming month I promise I will be better at commenting, I have been so bad lately. But working three jobs has been no fun. And I haven’t worked out since I got here….driving me nuts. But this is my last week of work and then I will have more downtime for fun and reading. Boy I can’t wait!!! So for the blog this month, a little bit lighter on the reviews and social interaction and boy I have missed you all. I can’t wait to get back in the “saddle” hehe And hope you all had a wonderful month of October.
