Good morning everyone. Happy Saturday! I hope everyone didn’t party too much last night? I went to bed early last night on account of not feeling good mentally and got up early this morning and cleaned the house and I am not sitting here after two cups of coffee drinking a diet soda and getting my daily stuff done.

Everyone is still asleep and it is quiet around here being eight o’clock in the morning. I made my enchilada’s last night for dinner with a small bowl of ice cream for dessert before going to sleep in my husband’s arms. Even the dogs are still in bed with daddy.

I am looking forward to a beautiful day that is overcast right now but it could be raining outside and I would still call it beautiful because the rain washes the air clean of pollutants. I was not able to stick to my goal last night due to mental issues but will be getting them done this morning.

I also need to get some marketing done for my two books that are already published on Amazon so I can see more book sales. I have started chapter three of the new book and it looks promising as far as my friends say because I have given them the first two chapters to read and give me some feedback.

This is the best time for me to write when everyone is still asleep because it is quiet with no distractions except the washing machine since I have many loads of laundry to do today because Saturday is when all rugs and bedding get washed and changed.

I know this is a holiday weekend for most of you and I hope you enjoy it to the fullest. It is time for me to get to work before everyone gets up and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else I wish for you to have an awesome Saturday and weekend and may your dreams and aspirations come true for you. Take care.

Good morning to all my friends and family, old and new. I haven’t been here for a couple days due to my sugar dropping really low and my husband making me stay down because I have hit dangerously low levels. I love him so much because he really takes care of me.

This morning, my sister-in-law was having a bad emotional morning and crying because things just don’t seem to be going right this month. She was talking about giving up and disappearing from the world until my husband and I sat and talked with her for a bit while having coffee. Things have been going rough I’ll admit but we have been trying to stay positive.

As far as my writing is concerned, I have been working on the first round of editing to my Joshua manuscript plus I have finished the first chapter of a new book. I have been working so hard and the first chapter is approximately five thousand words. I expect this book to be a full-length novel and writing it with all my heart. The downside I think is because I write every detail pretty much because I want the reader to experience it as they read.

I am functioning this morning on only a couple hours of sleep because my medications didn’t kick in last night, so I had to force myself to lay down at five o’clock this morning. I feel pretty good this morning even with only a few hours of sleep. I feel a bit fatigued but other than that, things are okay. My sugar wasn’t that high this morning and my husband gave me my insulin.

I am sticking to my schedule today and will be writing a short story on my blog here in a few minutes so I better get ready so I will say goodbye for now and wish everyone a happy Friday. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday!” Take care.

Hello, everyone. I just got up from a well-rested nap and I feel pretty good today. It has been very stressful around here the last few days. It came down to us having to move because of a certain situation, but after discussing it several times we finally came to a conclusion that as of right now we are not moving because we feel we are being forced out by others living in this house so they can have their way and we are not taking it. They are not going to win.

My sister-in-law is having a really rough time right now with all of the stress and drama going on in the house that she has actually isolated herself to her bedroom because she doesn’t want to hear all of the excuses and drama anymore. She woke up this morning very depressed and my husband and I had to keep her company for a bit until she began to feel better.

I, myself, went to bed at a fairly decent hour last night and slept almost all night except for a mishap in my sleep, but woke up feeling good until I saw my sister-in-law. Things have been good for the week as far as my writing is concerned. I have finished my Joshua manuscript and it is ready for its first round of editing. I have the first chapter of my next book already written and look forward to writing the second chapter tonight. It has been difficult to write with people screaming and crying in the house but I will be using my headphones so I don’t have to hear it anymore.

Well, things should get very interesting around here over the next couple of days and I will leave you with that information until I write again tomorrow. Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an awesome evening. Take care.

Today started out dragging because I had been up every hour last night running to the bathroom and being out of my night time medication. Plus, I had a doctor’s appointment to get new refills on my medication and she even raised some of the doses to see if it helps. I still feel wore down and fatigued but I am trying my best to stay up and not go lay down.

Yesterday was an awesome day because I finally finished my manuscript for “The Battle for Joshua” and now I can begin editing it and getting it ready for publishing. I have already begun writing my next manuscript which gives me a break from the first one so I can edit it with new eyes. My husband is so proud of me and shows his support every day.

I just need my motivation back to get pumping and complete my writing. I will keep positive and it will happen. I have plenty of books and blogs to write and things to keep my mind focused on instead of listening to all the crying, screaming, and attitudes of spoiled children. My husband gave me his headphones to block it all out so that I can write without distractions.

Another personal thing or accomplishment is that my blood sugar has remained manageable and somewhat in the low numbers. I have been glad of that and so has everyone else except for when it decides it wants to tank down to fifty-nine. Everyone starts handing me sweets to bring it back up.

So, today I will be positive and productive and leave the drama and stress at the door. I am now going to get some writing done and I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else my wish for you is that Friday will get her soon and that everyone has an awesome day. Take care.

“Happy September 1st, everyone!!” I cannot believe this year is almost over and how fast it flew by. First, I want to send my prayers to Texas for their tragedy and wish the very best for them. Secondly, our power situation has been taken care of and everything can get back to normal. I am thankful that everything works itself out if you are just patient.

I am now working on my schedule since coming back from buying things for the house. I look forward to finishing my manuscript and beginning the editing process so that it can be published. I am excited to see my books published and shared with the world. I have one and a half chapters left to write before the first round of editing.

I am feeling pretty good today but still have some house work to do as well and have about two loads of wash to get done. The kids have had their dinner and are playing in their room so I can get the house cleaned and wash done. My mental status and anxiety have come down quite a bit and doing better.

Well, I have to stop here to get things done but to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else have an awesome Friday night. Take care.

Well, today started off good and everyone got some much-needed rest. Tomorrow we go out to the property and begin the cleanup process so that we can move in. After she told me about all of the snakes that roam around up there, I had dreams of snakes all night and one of the dogs getting bit. We have a lot of work to do but it will be worth it in the end.

I went and did some shopping today to get things we needed and the house is cleaned so now I can sit down and get started with writing. I look forward to getting Joshua completed so I can start editing it. I think it will make a very good read for most and I find it exciting while I write it. The proof will be in the finished product.

I showered, the house is clean, and now I can write to my heart’s content. I hope everyone had an amazing Tuesday and that your evening is relaxing and worth every minute of it. I want to wish a “Happy Birthday” to everyone with a birthday today and that you have many more to come. I want to say good night now and have a blessed evening.

Hello, everyone. It is such a gorgeous day outside but I’m spending the day alone inside writing. Everyone has left for the day to take care of some things so I again have some alone time to write. I am sitting here with my roommate’s kitten resting on my lap and my husband’s puppy driving me crazy because all the other dogs are asleep and she wants to play. All she is doing is whining at me.

Anyway, the house is all to myself and the cleaning is done so I can sit and relax while writing on my book. It seems like it is taking me forever to write it but I think it will be worth the effort and time I have spent working on it.

I know this will be short but I am going to go lay down for a bit I am starting to get a headache but I will be back later. Take care and I wish everyone an awesome Saturday!

Well, yesterday was a false alarm thank God about our roommate moving back in. She showed up to get some more of her things and then told everyone she wasn’t moving back and that was such a relief. I could not bare it any more living with that woman. She was using drugs and would lie to your face about it. I just can’t take anymore of her drama.

On a lighter note, we just towed our car from my father-in-laws house and it is sitting in our driveway so now my husband can work on both cars to get one running. We are much happier now that she is gone and the plan is to find a place of our own so that the threat of her coming back will not stress me out anymore.

I am motivating myself everyday now to write and honing my writing craft. With two books published now, I am more confident about my writing which makes it easier to write more and more efficiently. Things have calmed down here quite a bit since I spent a whole week cleaning and have things organized which makes it a lot better for me.

I will be going grocery shopping this evening because my husband graduates from his class tomorrow and I am sending him in with a pan of lasagna and garlic bread. His class administrator is looking forward to tasting my lasagna as is everyone else. So, tomorrow I will be prepping and preparing lasagna so that should be really fun.

I am still working on “The Battle for Joshua” but it will be completed soon and then the rounds of editing will begin. We sat with some friends the other night and are planning to take a small vacation to Universal Studios Florida in October for Halloween Horror Night. I haven’t been to a theme park in years and very much look forward to it. I need a break, lol.

Well, I am still on schedule with my goals and deadlines this week. I made them more realistic so that I am not overwhelming myself. I still have forty-three books to write and more pop into my head everyday. I am finishing up a short story on my Stories of Faith and Love blog site today so please check it out.

Well, time to get started and I wish everyone with a birthday today “Happy Birthday” and everyone else have a great hump day!! 🙂

Hello, friends and family. How is everyone today? I woke up pretty good today and looking forward to a day full of writing. My husband left with family members to go work on one of their cars, so that leaves me with peace and quiet to write. Granted, I am doing laundry, but still able to write. I was up until four o’clock this morning working on some printing of forms I got passed to me to help me with time management and work efficiency. They are a great help right now with all of the issues I am facing.

I have finally made the decision to tighten up and keep pushing forward because I am faced with people around me who do not want to see me succeed and will do whatever they can to stop me from completing my tasks and my writing. I know what I am capable of doing and can be successful if given the chance but my roommate knows how to play games and is such a drama queen. She tries to take my attention away from my writing and my husband has agreed to keep her away from me when I am writing.

I have my game plan and strategy to get my books done and I need to put them into action. I appreciate all the support and love I receive from all my readers who are my friends and family. I hope to gain more because I know you can never have too many friends and family, lol.

Now it is time for me to get back to my writing and hope to hear from all of you soon. “Happy Birthday” to everyone with a birthday today and I wish everyone an awesome and blessed day.

Good morning friends and family. Today has started out to be a good day so far. It is overcast outside and I’m pretty sure it is going to rain sometime today. Well, the only vehicle we had in this house broke down on Friday and is sitting in the shop being repaired. So, we are without a vehicle and need a new battery for our car sitting at my father-in-law’s house. So we are stuck right now with no transportation.

I am going to be doing some writing today and getting caught up on some other things that I have missed since the beginning of the month. I still need to go back and add more to the first chapter of my second book which I should have completed this week. Something or someone is always trying to deter me from writing and getting my stuff done. It can be a real pain sometimes.

My mind is a little better today but like I said, the day has just gotten started. Our roommate has finally gotten out of bed to feed her animals and already causing me some stress because she knows I am just sitting down to write and has to call me for everything. Well, I am staying strong enough to get what I need to be done first and foremost before doing anything else. I spent the better part of the whole day yesterday cleaning her cat’s room.

Well, I will end here and get into my writing because I have to get the story out of my head before I fall into that world and never return, lol. I love everyone and wish you the best day ever. Be blessed.
