Work in Progress…


Sometimes I feel like my whole life is a “work in progress”…

Almost every time I come back to this blog, I am apologizing for not writing enough. To who, though? Myself, I guess. I need to combat my chronic laziness. I want to write all the time, but just don’t get around to it, unfortunately.

Update on my life: 

Back in February 2017, my partner, Jay, broke his leg after slipping on ice during a bad snow storm. He was also diagnosed just recently with severe arthritis in his hip which was probably caused by a previous injury years ago, so with that and his leg he won’t be able to go back to work for a quite a bit still.

I’ve been working a lot lately, and as usual am exhausted everyday. My current task at work is trying to get Margaret Atwood in for a book signing of the Handmaid’s Tale – woo! I will let you all know how that goes. If you’ve been watching the new series that has been created around The Handmaid’s Tale, I’d love to know what you think. I really think it is amazing and a must read/watch!

Speaking of Atwood, I’ve been consuming a lot more literature lately, which is really helping me to de-stress. I’m on an Atwood kick at the moment, but I’ve also been reading Eckhart Tolle and HP Lovecraft, as well as other stuff. What have you been reading? 

Over Spring Break in March, I was lucky enough to read lots of great children’s stories to different groups of kids that came in to the store. It made me miss teaching pre-school and so I have decided that I am going to develop a YouTube channel where I host a story time for children. It will be called, “Storytime with Miss Nikki”. Please let me know what you think of this!

Until next time …
