Catching Up

We know where mom is going when she's released, but we aren't positive when she will be released.  This week she sees the doctor and hopefully she will be done with the antibiotic.  Then it's up to the nursing home to say how long they need her for therapy to prep her for release. It's … Continue reading Catching Up

Lazy Night

Why is it when I'm tired and try to be responsible by going to bed early, I sleep horribly?  It's probably my messed up brain.  I went to bed early but woke up on and off all night. I worked longer yesterday as we are coming into the new academic year.  I got home later, … Continue reading Lazy Night

Ode to Cheetos

There are just times you have to have something.  It doesn't matter how good or bad for you it is.  You MUST have it.  I've been craving Cheetos.  Ken was a sweetie and got me some on Monday. I don't know what they put in them but I've eaten a full bag of Cheetos since … Continue reading Ode to Cheetos

Balancing Act

My searches in Wayfarer 8 are done.  Now I have to do a read through before I print for an edit.  I've also gotten about 15,000 words into Wayfarer 10. My middle daughter sent me a blog from one of her favorite authors about how to handle being stuck in a story.  It was interesting … Continue reading Balancing Act

When I went on vacation, I … Continue reading Hermit Hole

Mentally I have a long list of … Continue reading Overloaded and Overwhelmed

Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…

After I finish a manuscript and switch to something else, I feel like I'm not accomplishing anything.  I have to remind myself there is more to life than writing.  Sunday, I spent the day listening to an audio book and going through the stack of coupons.  Since my stack was so large, it took me … Continue reading Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…


I've been busy.  I did sales summary analysis for January, billed for an editing job, responded to a bunch of emails, ate three meals yesterday (though supper was a bit late), and wrote.  I wrote an epilogue of sorts to Wayfarer Aegis.  One of my test readers insisted.  I was reluctant but having written it … Continue reading Productivity…

Alone at last!

Ken went off to visit the girls and I'm just back from dropping him at the airport.  I get to be home alone for the next week!  I am very excited about this as I plan to WRITE until my fingers fall off. I sent Ken with goodies for the girls.  I've been crocheting for … Continue reading Alone at last!
