Good afternoon all my East Coasters and good morning to all my West Coasters. How is everyone doing today? Happy Hump Day!! Two more days until the weekend and I know everyone is probably waiting with anticipation. I look forward to every morning when I wake up and feel my heart beating and the breath of air in my lungs. Today we go back home and take care of things there and visit with everyone.

I am already feeling the stress of returning and hope we are welcome back with open arms and that the house is not trashed. We have enjoyed our break away and look forward to coming back again. It is very relaxing here and I have been stress-free. We have four of our five dogs here with us and I will be happy to see our other dog who we left at home. It has been a week since we saw her and we have missed her so much.

I am off house cleaning today here because I have kept the house clean while they were gone and now she is doing the house and ordered me to relax while she does the cleaning, so I have time to sit and write. I will be getting some writing done today and yesterday I got some tweets out about my FREE ebook on this site. I have had several people download my book so far and some have enjoyed it very much.

Today, my goal is to get another chapter of one book done and write the first chapter of the second one since I have finished the detailed outline of it. I am happy when I am writing and when I spend time with my loving husband and dogs. That is what makes me truly happy and satisfied.

Since I began writing, I have found that my true passion is writing. It is my real escape from reality and each one of my short stories and books I find that there is a piece of me and my life inside each one even when it is fiction. It is good therapy and very enjoying for me. My husband being a gamer and myself a writer, it gives us space from each other even with us in the same room.

So, it is time for me to end this post and get things ready to go home after I take a shower. I will be here every day posting now that I will be in a stress-free environment and have the time to post and get everything done. So, everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome day. Take care.

Good afternoon everyone. How are we doing today? I am feeling pretty good today and looking forward to the rest of my day with some writing. The house is smelling good and clean and some smooth music is playing while I am posting this. I write better when there is nice music playing. It seems to drown out all the noise around me.

It has been raining off and on all morning and I have sat out on the porch for a bit while getting the dogs out. I love the smell in the air after a good rain. So, did everyone have a good weekend? Mine was very relaxing and I took somewhat of a break from writing to clear my head and feel that there is no stress here like there is at home.

I had to go to my site and change the code for the free ebook so now everyone should have no problem downloading it. I have had some people say that they have enjoyed reading it, but it will only be free for a little while longer before going up on Amazon for sale. Please get your copy now while it is free.

Well, my day is full of getting things done with the two books that I am writing because my deadline is getting close to having them sent to the editor. I am excited about being a published author and look ahead to all the other books that I will write. I have a short story that I have to finish for the site so I will end this post here and wish everyone a “Happy Monday” and will post again soon.

Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great and prosperous day. Take care.

Hello everyone. I just got finished cleaning the house and now I can sit and relax until dinner time. We are at our friends’ house sitting with their dad and it has been nice. We brought four of our five dogs with us and they get along great with their four small dogs. Our nine-month-old lab has gone into heat so we are just going to have a good old time with her. At least they only have two boys and one is gone with our friend and the other one here is too small to reach anything.

It has been nice being here and their dad is good people and we have awesome conversations. I have been able to sit and relax and now since everything is done I can work on my writing. It has been great weather here for being February. I call it a heat wave with our temperatures in the upper seventies and eighties.

I will be starting to write the second book that I finished the detailed outline on the other night so that will be two works in progress that I hope to publish soon. I have been doing some marketing and have had two of my book read in the Kindle lending library and a few downloads of my free book, “The Battle for Joshua”. I am having a great time writing and I know it will take patience before sales really start picking up more.

Well, I have a short story to finish and post on the site and wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else an awesome weekend. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is almost seven o’clock in the morning here and a little chilly outside with cloudy skies. One of my older dogs woke me up because they had to go out and I figured I might as well stay up and make the coffee. My husband and I went to bed about three o’clock this morning so I have only had about three hours of sleep and I have a doctor’s appointment at one o’clock today. I will be taking a nap and then a shower before going.

I have had a lot on my mind lately and still dealing with my bowel problem. There has been a little drama here at home but nothing I can’t deal with. I have tried putting my mind back into my writing to escape from everything. I have two works in progress where I have five chapters written in one book and just finished the detailed and organized outline of my other book.

The audiobook of The Battle for Joshua should be completed by the end of the month and I am excited about getting it up on Amazon also. My goal and plan are to have both of my works in progress ready for the editor around the first of the month. I am proud of the three books I have published already and have high expectations for them.

Well, I need to get some other things done and wish everyone a “Happy Monday”. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome and prosperous day. Take care.

I truly apologize for not posting since January 31st. There have been a lot of things going on with my health which has caused a lot of turmoil. I was scheduled to see my psychiatrist for my next refills of medication but we had some freak snow storms coming through which Dalton panics and everything shuts down. So, I never made it to my doctor and ran out of medication for ten days which caused some serious withdrawals which concerned my husband enough to make me housebound and even he called the pharmacy asking them to get ahold of my doctor for refills.

They finally got ahold of the doctor and refilled my medications so I am back on my mental health medication. Then, I went to see my primary care doctor and I have a diabetic ulcer on the bottom of my big toe which I now have to wear a walking boot until my appointment with wound care on Monday. I also have a major infection in the same foot which the doctor has me on a strong antibiotic for the infection.

On top of everything else, Now I am having bowel issues. I fill like I have to go only to sit in pain on the toilet as my body has contractions making me push when there is nothing there to push out. Having this issue for the past few days, I ended up prolapsing my anus which I had to take a hot bath and push it back in. I have been having severe abdominal cramps which has made me want to sleep so that my bowels can rest and I can be pain-free for a few hours. I have been walking gently while holding my lower abdomen so that it is not jarred. I have actually been miserable for the past few days.

Things here at home have been a little out of sorts. My husband and I are good and have been spending time with each other, but the relationship between his sister and I has been awkward. I have no clue as to what is going on but the closeness that we used to share is not there anymore. It feels like we are miles apart and all she does is stay in her room. I understand that I stay in my room a lot but I am being productive with my writing and getting things done. It seems we are drifting apart and losing the closeness we used to share.

Now you see that I am as normal as anyone else and have issues like any normal human being. I am always looking to make my relationship with my readers more personal so that you can get to know me better. I am no better than anyone else and I hope through my postings I have proved that.

Well, now that I feel a little better and have some energy I am going to get back to working on some things to keep moving forward. I hope everyone had a perfect and special Valentine’s Day and will talk again soon. Take care.
