Where Oh Where

"Where," you might ask, "have you been," 
"Why haven't you been in the studio lately?"

Remember when I moved to Central Louisiana last July, and I thought I might "retire" from working in the law and just make jewelry full-time? But then a law office had someone suddenly gone (sadly, killed in a tragic automobile accident) and they needed help. PRONTO! So I came out of retirement and went back to a 9-to-5 job in the law. To help out because they were in a dire pinch.

It's a very small office. Just four people, including the attorney. I like the casual setting, the variable work, and the fact that I get to leave on time every day, and early on Fridays. And wear jeans on Friday, too.

About a month ago, there was the attorney, the receptionist/file clerk, myself and one other lady at the office working. The four of us were it. If it got done, one of the four of us did it.

The other lady who does what I do suddenly, one Thursday a month ago, gave one day's notice and left. 
No two-week notice. Just gone. Bye-Bye. Outta Here. See-ya.
So it was just the three of us, until we could find a replacement.
Needless to say, I've been BUSY-BUSY-BUSY since then.

But a new person has joined the office recently. It's back to the four of us again. The newly hired one does have a learning curve, but it still helps having four people again.

So it should really slow down some for me again, hopefully soon.
And I will be able to get back to the studio more now! 
To create!
YAY... and WHEW! 

So ... "that's where I've been lately."
