This is just a quick note to let you know that I am going to be posting the next chapter (Ch 06) of Dragon Lady a bit later tonight. so if anyone has been wondering what exactly is under the gang's table at the Lucky Peking Restaurant, you're about to find out!
In other news, my business is going gangbusters and more and more people are contacting me wanting appointments and assistance. I'm so glad this is happening because I suck at marketing and I really didn't want to have to get into figuring that out. I've been run off my feet with referrals for several months running. This is a big relief after those first couple of years of nothing happening and sliding into debt.
Working 14 hours a day most days has its drawbacks, though. It's difficult to spend time with my husband and father, and I can hardly ever get to the gym nowadays. I bought myself a step counter which I can wear on a lanyard around my neck as opposed to the kind you wear on your hip. No one can see it because it hangs under my clothes. I take phone calls on my feet pacing around my office, and the constant presence of this step counter on my body reminds me to get up and move at regular intervals. I'm at just over 6700 steps for the day today. My goal is 10,000 per day. I don't always make it, but sometimes I manage to exceed it.
A few nights ago, I got home late as usual, but managed to watch most of a movie with my husband by dint of staying up until almost 1:00 a.m. It was the second Scorpion King movie. We enjoyed slagging its low-budget special effects and the dubious acting skills of everyone involved. The main thing I have to say about it was that it was a great kids movie, and the main actor, Michael Copon, has a set of the nicest, um, teeth I've ever seen.
Anyhow, that's what's new with me, apart from the fact that my French has improved considerably since my vacation, although I still can't get the hang of past and future tense.
