At the Office

Okay, so I'm running a bit behind (about fifteen minutes). But not bad for my first day back to holding "serious" office hours.

Welcome to my office!


Those of you who read my previous Book and Baristas post, here it is--The Vault. You can see the bank over there on the right and down below is Aldrich's Grocery Store. Cool spot, huh? I'm working under the clock on the back wall (okay, not working...blogging).

I'm putting my intentions in writing, right here, right now so they WILL get done.

1. My office hours will be from 12:00 to 3:20, Monday through Friday. (I wonder if The Vault will start charging me rent?)

2. I will write! And only write; no email, no blog, no Facebook. Period. I give permission to the lovely ladies of The Vault to call me out if they see any of the above three open on my computer screen.

Yes, I know I'm blogging now during my office hours, but today is a special day and I believe getting my intentions in writing is just as important as getting to the work. Was that convincing? It what I had to tell myself to make it okay.

3. I will avoid these pastries for reasons I'm sure you understand.


I am quite thankful they do NOT serve cupcakes here or I would be in serious trouble.

4. And MOST important. I will finish my revision by the end of September. You heard it here. Hold me to it. Please!

Good intentions, though before, I made an intention NOT to write my intentions down.
How can you not have one of those pastries?! Sure, you'll feel a little guilty later,but you need to treat yourself. ^_^

I really would like some of those pasteries too, how can you not have one of them with your nonfat, one splenda latte? Tell how can you not?
I resist everyday! Great pictures of our home away from home!

Jehsyka and Mallory...oh the pressure to eat pastries. Don't do it to me, don't! I promise to treat myself now and then but not on a daily basis. But again, I'd be in SERIOUS trouble if cupcakes were on the shelves. For now, my treat will be my daily latte.

What treat should I have when I finish the revision...on time? I'll have to consider that one.

I'll hold you to your revision deadline, if you hold me to mine! Pinky swear? :)

Love to see your "branch office." Definitely much more character than mine, which I am sure is reflected in our respective writing :-) I won't be part of the cafe-office crowd much longer though; just accepted a new job. Will tell you and girls more about it on FB, which I trust you will not be reading until after 3:30pm. :-) Luckily, I can use stealth mode with my iPhone to check your Cuppa Jolie blog whenever I need fresh air. Hugs!
