Lost In Time And Space

Now Playing -
Swans (life after death)

Life - 

Believe it or not, but tomorrow seems to have slid a few days to the right on the calendar. Hard to believe, eh? I've been busy and more to the point, a bit overwhelmed! In the last few weeks, I've worked an average of  60 hours a week at work, plus an hour commute time every day. Then, when I get home, I've dove headlong into my attempts to open a shop on the website Etsy, selling some sculptures, drawings and stickers I've made. And thats the tip of the iceberg, with a summer cold weighing me down the entire time. Every once in a while, I just want to call it a night and sleep for three days. 

Anyway, things are progressing. Right now, I'm on the fence about my upcoming classes for my Pharmacy Tech License, something required by my work for my position. I'll take it eventually, but it involves three thorough and weighty tomes, 6 weekly three hour classes and a refresher, and I'm not sure if I'm up to that now with everything else. They have another class in January. Maybe it would be easier for me to concentrate on it after Christmas has spread it's joy around and things are calmer at work.  But I need to decide fast, as the first class is tomorrow morning! 

My Etsy shop, Deeply Dapper is up and running now, with a few items on it, catering to the lover of the unknown, steampunk, Lovecraft and anything cool and mysterious, it will eventually include handmade Tie Tacks, Pocket Squares, Artwork, Photographic Prints, Auto Decals, Curiosities and more. Right now, all that's there are a couple Sasquatch stickers and a Beastie in a bottle, but check it out! I also started a blog for the shop to showcase works in progress and the like.

So to sum up, Life, as the heading proclaims, is crappy, busy and daunting right now. In fact, my brain is fuzzy enough that I started writing my Quarterly Reading Update today, without realizing that I still have the month of September.

I am sorry to hear about most of that! I hope you can get out of this quickly. But, I know, no matter what, you'll come out on top! Just keep on fighting! You can do it! Remember, you have my support. Granted with the time difference it's sleep support, but you still have it!
