Default Another update from me

We've been back here for about 16 months now.
Last time I posted an update I had a job. Now I don't! What was meant to be a nice little part time job turned out to be the most stressful job I ever had. The pay wasn't worth the stress and, although it was horrible not to survive the 6 month probation period, it was a relief to get a good night's sleep and not wake up worrying about something I should or should not have done.
So I'm back to looking for a job and am hoping something comes up soon.
In the meantime, my writing career appears to be taking off. My first (e-book) was released at the end of August and has received great reviews. My novella comes out at the end of March and I have another novel due out 6 weeks later. The royalties aren't great but I'll take anything.
Our son is doing well at school. He loves it here.
My husband is very busy. He's lucky enough to be working in a pre-racing yard that isn't being hit by the bad economy. In fact, I think they have more horses this year than they did this time last year.
We're struggling a bit financially, but I've become very good at feeding us all on a low budget.
All in all, things aren't easy but we're still really glad to be back.

I'm so glad that you no longer have to go to that stressful job. I had one of those and lasted about a month and a half. One of the most stressful times of my life.

Much success on your e-books.
