I have been very lax over the last week or so and I feel horrible about it. I haven't updated my blog in a little over ten days now. I haven't checked my Facebook or Pinterest in just as long. Twitter has gone neglected as well. My writing has gone unfinished. The only thing that has not been ignore is my family. Not sure what is going on really. I guess I could blame it on all the other wifely and motherly duties I have but I'm not going to look for a scapegoat. No I am going to take full responsibility for this one. I am going to give myself a mental kick and the pants and get the ball rolling again. I was doing so well and I need to finish what I have started. Besides I have other characters in my head that are screaming out for their turn to have their stories told. So I have my headphones on Adele is blasting in my ear. The kiddies are occupied with movies and I am in front of the computer with a cup of coffee. All the makings of a bestseller right here in my head. Now I just gotta get it down on paper. Seriously considering not taking phone calls from anyone except my dear hubby. This first book mean a lot to me and it's time I give it the attention it deserves.
Sitting at my desk bobbing my head to 'Trials of the Past' by SBTRKT and I am finally getting some work done. Yay me. I have to meet my own personal deadline and get this book done by the end of next month. I guess you could say that is a blessing and a curse that I don't have a publishing house. If I did I would have an actual deadline. Some days I think I need that extra push the extra motivation. Then the kids reek havoc with my day and all of my plans for the day go out the window and I am glad I don't have someone down my back screaming at me to finish my book. But it's back to work for me. My little mini vacation is over. I am anxious to get this book out so that I can find get some feed back on my writing skills. My husband says that I should prepare myself for the good and the bad feed back. My only hope is that there is more good than bad. Well back to work go ahead and bob your head with me. I gotta get back to work.
So I haven't been on in a few days due to the fact that I sprang my ankle and it was in possible to put my foot up while it was under my desk. So I waited for it to heal up a bit and now I back. I know what your wondering and no I didn't do it running on the treadmill though I wish I had. That would have be better that how I actually had. Yes this involves my dear darling two year old (what doesn't?) So earlier this week she was in rare form even for her. She was extremely cranky and crying and throwing temper tantrums and getting into everything. Well she managed to get in to laundry room and pour something on my ceramic tile floor. I you have a tile floor then you know how slippery they are when they are wet. Well as I was carrying her out of the laundry room I slipped and in order to save her from getting hurt I got hurt. I mean really what kind of mommy would I have been if I'd let it happen any other way? Anyhow now I have a wonderful sprang ankle so there will be no running on the treadmill for a little while. So very disappointed. But at least I can sit at my desk comfortably again so it's back to work now. Time to get productive. Yay. I did get I little reading done and some planning for some other books I'm writing, so it hasn't been all sitting on the sofa with my foot propped up on a pillow. ;) Not all anyway.
So school is back in session my oldest two are gone and my youngest is watching Nick Jr in the next room. First order of business I have to do a little dance because the kids are back in school Yay. Now it is time to get back to work. I gotta crack the proverbial whip so to speak and get back on course. I have four books in the making and so little time to write them all. I've got to get back into my work out regimen, because honestly I miss running on my treadmill everyday (go figure right?) Who would have ever thought I'd miss such a thing but I do.
There is so much to do and so very little time. I need some help with time management. No wait scratch that I can make a schedule like nobody's business. Does anybody know where I can get a industrial size bottle of self discipline? I am in dire need of some I think I ran out sometime around child number two. Honestly I have discipline when it comes to the important things (i.e. anything to do with the kids the hubby the dog or the house.) It only seem to be in short supply when it comes to me and what I need. Then it seems that I can go with out, or I don't really need. I made a resolution this year and it was to take care of me. Sadly I think it went out the window sometime around mid February when we started redecorating the house. Well I think it's time I get back to me. Writing, exercising, and beautifying me. Aside from my work, I think I am going to focus on me for a while. I'll keep you posted on how well it work out for me ;)
So I have my nephew over for the weekend. I have never in my life had such trouble getting an almost twelve year old child to eat green beans. Granted I feel his pain I don't like them either, but I ate mine. However it took him almost an hour to eat them. I mean come on it's only a quarter cup of green beans.He tried every thing pleading, bartering, giving them to my son and even throwing them in the trash * I caught him of course.* The moment that made me laugh the most was when he referred to having to eat them as an unbeatable challenge in the video game call of duty. He said that he can never get past the first level. That as soon as you get there, there is a man in a tree and the second you spot him he shoots you. Really are green beans that bad? He is standing here as I type this post according to him yes green beans are that bad. My son and I ate ours, I don't think it's that serious but I digress, needless to say he did finally eat them. They were probably freezing cold by then. I don't have the kind of problems out of my two year old. You gotta love kids.
Ok world I've had my coffee, the kids are up, I have a few errands to run and then it's time to let the creative juices flow. Why am I in such a good mood today you may ask. Well it's because my oldest daughter reminded me this morning that there are only two days left of spring break. Woohoo color me thrilled. I have barely gotten any work done over the last week. Thanks to my three lovely children's constant bickering and the never ending cries of I'm hungry nothing has been done. I am so ready to get back to the quiet days of just having the two year old at home *smirking sarcastically*. Oh yeah good times. Although she does let me get more done than the older two, but not by much. I cannot wait.
Oh no I just thought about something that has slightly put a damper on my wonderful mood. With the end of spring break comes the end of the school year altogether. That means eight whole weeks of constant bickering and never ending cries of I'm hungry. I think I'm going to look into some sort of summer camp *raising my eyebrows suggestively*. Just kidding I love being a mom. But I do really wish I could get a little more work done. Oh well what ever will be will be. For now I'll just hold on to the thought that spring break is over in two days, and I'll try not to dwell on the fact that summer starts in about two months. The creative juices had better start flowing I have a lot to get done in a mere two months.
So last night while putting my dear two year old to bed she decided to try to make a run for it. In the process of making a run for it she decided to run though my bedroom in the process she step on my tablet and cracked the screen. Arrrrggghhh how will I read all of my Kindle books now? My loving husband offered me his which was sweet but I can't take his. I'll just have to order a new one. Granted it does still function some what, if you attempt to tap the screen in some places it will tap in some other place halfway down the screen. I'm so sad I think I might cry. What ever shall I do in the mean time?
Wife and mother of three doing my best to write and publish a book and take care of three kids a husband and dog while keeping my sanity
