The new normal

Hello, friends. One day I hope to get better about updating this thing, lol.

I just finished my seventh week at my new job, and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it. The amount of freedom I have is something I only ever dreamed of having in a job. I can basically do whatever I want, as long as I get my work done, which has been so great for my anxiety. I wear what I want, get to work when I want (within reason, lol, but basically I can get there "late" and it doesn't really matter), I work from home on Wednesdays right now, and I even worked at home a little bit today because I left early yesterday. The environment is great, the people are great, and while the work can definitely be boring, everything else makes it not so bad.

Having more money is obviously great too. I finally got a new mattress (it's financed, but I don't feel stressed about the payments), and I've been able to buy other things here and there that I need.

One sad thing is that my grandma passed away this past Thursday (September 9), so my mom and I will be heading up to New York probably next week for the funeral. The reason for going sucks, but I am looking forward to getting up there for the first time in a few years, and also getting that Becoming Family vibe as I get ready to publish it.

And, of course, speaking of Becoming Family, I'm looking at publishing it in October. The book opens in October, so it felt appropriate. Not sure of an exact date yet, or if I'll do preorders, but information will be forthcoming.

I'm slowly starting to feel settled into my job, and I'm hoping soon I can start actually writing again. I haven't decided yet if I want to do Winter's Noelle for NaNo this year, but we'll see how October goes.

I hope you're all doing well, and having a good month so far!
