Well waking up today was not a good thing. A person in our house whose name the power is in owed a bill from a previous address which they transferred onto this bill has not made a payment since April. Well, today they shut off the water and we are just waiting for the power to be turned off. No one gets paid until tomorrow and it will cost at least $470.00 to get power back on plus we had to have our car towed last night because we blew a head gasket which was just changed a few months ago.

So we are without a vehicle, the power is getting shut off, and when it rains it pours. Everyone is so stressed out and it is going to hurt us financially to have to pay the money but it has to be done. Some people in this house just don’t care to be responsible.

“News Flash” I just got word that by some miracle someone’s check came in early and a payment was made to the power company to keep the power on. So we will see what happens. I am always a skeptic especially when it comes to someone with a horrible track record of keeping their word.

On to a happier note, I just printed up all my notes for my next nonfiction book and will be working on getting the outline together while still finishing “Joshua”. I am almost finished with it and only behind schedule by two chapters which isn’t as bad as being three weeks behind, so let’s just say I have a little late night catching up to work on but will definitely get back on schedule over the next few days. “Happy Birthday” to everyone with a birthday today and to everyone else, have an awesome evening. Take care.

Morning, everyone. How are we doing today? I wish I could say my day started off good, but it didn’t. When you have a family meeting and people are not willing to give in to compromise or allow someone to help to make a situation better is just so frustrating. Then, for them to make a statement that you accused them of not caring about their kids is hurtful when it was not meant that way and that was not even insinuated.

It just throws your whole day off and makes you not want to say anything else because it will be interpreted the wrong way. I will just keep quiet from now on and bury myself into my writing and save up money to move into our own place so that I won’t be a problem for anyone anymore.

I know that I might sound like a wuss but because of my mental health status, it makes me very vulnerable to people’s words. I take things so hard that it just happens and then the rest of my day is depressing and everything is hurtful and I find myself crying all day that it makes my husband frustrated because he can’t fix me.

Well, that is enough of my depressing talk, so I will end this post here and hopefully have a better tomorrow. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome hump day. Take care.

Good evening, everyone. How are you all doing this Friday evening? Any party goers out there? We have finally gotten our room set up and cleaned up and now my work station is ready to go back to writing.

It has been a rough day for me because I woke up not feeling good and slept in until sometime this early afternoon. Then, to top it all off, my husband and I get into an argument and stop talking to each other for a few minutes until we both calmed down and then we talked it out. We are good now and he is trying to fix his PlayStation 4 controller to play a game.

I still feel a bit out of sorts but will be taking it easy the rest of the evening and going to bed early to get enough sleep. I am anxious to get back to writing and getting my book together for editing. It will be my first fictional book and I am very excited about completing it. I am almost ready to print up my book notes for my next nonfiction book in my series, “How I Survived” and also look forward to publishing it.

The drama and stress are now subsiding and I feel a little better about our living situation and hopefully, by the end of the year, we can have enough saved for our own place, which is what we both want. There are just too many people living in this house with five of them being kids age twelve and under. With all of the yelling, screaming, and fighting, it is hard to get any writing done or being able to hear myself think. I will be doing my writing during the week while everyone is at school and it is quiet here.

Well, it is time for me to say good night and as always to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome night. Take care.

Good morning, everyone. Did everyone get to experience the lunar eclipse yesterday? We were supposed to get a total eclipse but only received a partial which was still cool to see. We finished our last load of stuff from the dilapidated trailer and into my sister-in-law’s house yesterday and now it is time to settle in until we save up enough to get our own place. My whole body ached really bad from moving but we got it done.

We are going to be setting up our room today so that I can set up my work station for writing. I look forward to getting back to writing and seeing what other creative juices I can open the flood gates too. My list of books and outlines are still waiting for me to begin so it is imperative that I get back to writing so that I can share my stories with the world.

Well, it’s that time to get my day started. I wish everyone with a birthday today, ” Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great and awesome day. Take care.

Good morning everyone! It is such a beautiful day and everyone had such a great night last night. We all sat out in the yard listening to music and dancing. It was fun watching the kids dance and have a good time. It was a huge sleep over with a total of fourteen people hear last night staying the night. We all had a great time.

Today is a cleaning day and even the kids are cleaning the house. The adults are sitting here at the table having coffee and waking up while I sit here writing. We are almost done moving our stuff to here and then trying to organize will be next. Once everything is done I can sit and begin writing and finish my manuscript. Things are becoming better and we can now relax and breathe a bit.

So to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome Sunday. Take care.

Hello, everyone. It is a hot but beautiful day here in Dalton, Georgia. We are staying at my sister-in-law’s house because we have been screwed over so much lately that it was going to force us to sleep in our car until she offered to let us stay with her. We are going to save up our money to get a place of our own. We will never let anyone live with us again or stay with anyone else because it is ridiculous how people love to take advantage of another person for personal gain.

I love staying with my sister-in-law because she too is OCD about cleanliness and we get along so well. We are going today to get the rest of our stuff from the dilapidated trailer that our previous roommates tried to get us to fix and make livable. We are tired of being used, abused, and having our kindness taken for a weakness.

I will be able to get back to writing now which was very helpful with my mental health status. I should be able to finish Joshua this weekend and begin editing. I have been so stressed out lately that writing was not possible. I could not think clearly and constantly worrying about things. Now I feel more relaxed and my creative juices can now flow and get back to what I love, writing.

Now it is time for me to get some things done like cleaning the house and then setting up my work station for book writing. I look forward to each day now and being very happy with my husband whom I love very much. I wish everyone could have a loving and caring relationship like ours. So let me say goodbye for now and I wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great Friday.

Hello, everyone! I apologize for not writing until now. We have moved from the house we were living in and have gone off the grid for a bit. We are roughing it out in the boonies and have no internet as of yet. We are staying a few days with my sister-in-law so that we can take care of a few things online and plus we just bought brakes for our car and my husband will be installing them tomorrow because it is raining outside.

I have still been working on my book and will be able to send it to the editor around the first of the month before publishing. I am having a wonderful time writing my book and I find it very relaxing which makes it a good coping mechanism for my mental health. I am already looking forward to writing the next one and the ones after that. I have plenty of books to keep me busy for at least another year.

I just found out that my ex-husband and his new wife moved in down the street from where we were living so it was a good thing we moved from there before any drama got started. He and the woman they moved in with are both mine and my husband’s exes. They caused so many issues when we first got married it was unreal but they have been quiet for awhile now which we really appreciate.

We have been married for four years come October and we are still on our honeymoon so my husband says, but I feel that we are more in love with each other now than when we first got married. I love him so much and I am very thankful for him. He is truly my soul mate.

Well, it is time for me to get back to working on my book and relaxing. I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, have a very awesome Friday. Take care.
