*One aspect of my job is to, twice a month, write the e-newsletters that go out to all the customers on our mailing list. It's a lot of fun and I love doing it because, hey, I get to write and people read what I write. But it's also the most stressful part of my job because it's just me. After the owner tells me what the subject is to be, it's all on me. I agonize over every word and sentence because, unlike what I do here, these aren't just blog stats. They're actual customers who we want to not only keep reading the newsletter, but then come in the store and spend money so I can keep my job. Anyway, I have a newsletter due on Monday and it just isn't coming together the way I want and I'm finding myself avoiding it. I need to just sit down and finish it so that it's not hanging over my head all weekend.
*Tomorrow Jay and I go see Rachel Maddow! I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to finish her book before the event. Jay's only a few pages away from being done with it and he keeps joking that everything Rachel says will be over my head since I didn't read the book. I may stab him in the face.
