Now Playing: Sirius Sat. Radio - 1st Wave
Just thought I'd pop in and say "Hi." It's been a busy week. I work at night from 10 pm to 6 am and it's been a challenging week. Some of my challenges?
Sleeping. I'm only averaging 5 hours at home after working all night. I have to work in more sleep, but my body is waking up. I suppose it's still adjusting to the new schedule.
Weight Watchers. I lost .8 pounds this past week. Can't complain but I thought it would be more. I'm sticking it to it though. My husband lost 5 pounds. The bum. But I do realize boys/girls lose weight differently and my weight loss isn't going to be as easy as his. It's encouraging.
I found one day to write one chapter of my paranormal romance. Now the challenge is to find time to post it here on WDC for feedback.
Now I was crusing my writing group and I found this recent tidbit from "Shelf Awareness:"
"Shelf Awareness" has recently reported that Barnes & Noble is downsizing for the FIRST time in the company's history. THey eliminated nearly 100 positions in their corporate headquarters. B&N have approx. 40,000 employees and 800 stores overall.
Even B&N is not immune to today's tough economic times, however this looks like a restrucing move to me. I think think restructing is important and it's probably what has to happen to avoid a bankruptcy. I think there's A LOT of overhead in today's business and I think a vast majority of business can go for some streamling and restructuing. I'll be monitoring B&N along with Borders to see how today's economy continues to effect them - and us.
