So Yeah... *shuffles feet*  
I just got a text telling me that we're going to be receiving 700 pieces of freight nightly this week at the job.

For those of you that don't work retail, that's a lot. Especially if you only have a four-man crew to work it and then backstock it at night and you're part of that crew. Don't fool yourselves that BB&B has a separate cleaning and stock crew. It's all done by the employees you see working through the store. WE are the ones that do all of it.

I tell you this because there's NO WAY that we're going to manage an Across the Universe chapter this week with me under the gun like this. We also have the opener to Love and Other Headaches to get finished and to beta and I don't know if we'll manage that either, even with it more than a third done.

Start week on LaOH, BTW, is being stated as November 19. It would be sooner, but all of the RL stuff keeps mucking with us. But rest assured, the muses are wide-awake and talking. It's just the fact that I'm not home enough to keep the ball rolling as much as I'd like.

So, yeah. No ATU this week, but it shall return next Saturday. LaOH is set to roll out on Saturday the 19th.

saavikam77, we're still full-steam-ahead on our stuff as it's bouncing back and forth. And it's the only thing keeping me sane. *smishes*

Holy crap! O_O Sounds like this is gonna be a hell week. Damn. *smishes you tight*

I'll do everything in my power to help keep the ball rolling on out stuff, sweetie. Gods know I don't want you crumbling under the insanity of work stuff.

*snuggles some more*

Hey, at this point, our work on LaOH is all I'm messing with this week. Anissa and I are going to work on opening on and off, in between us working on that. You know me, writing keeps me sane. This week is gonna be all about the fun stuff. :-*

Let me guess - this is the beginning of holiday retail chaos? I've worked retail myself, but in much smaller stores, and even a few more boxes than usual can really make things hellish. Relax, do what you have to do, and don't worry about us!

God, if only! The holiday insanity actually started about three weeks ago here. We've been getting in tons of freight for weeks and we're actually starting to get the holiday customer flow a LOT earlier than usual. Just...ugh.

*snugs* Thanks, love. I just hate that we're not being out the level of material that we usually do this year. It's just been so damn BUSY all year and I find myself more tired than I'm used to being.
