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!

Good evening, everyone! Happy Friday!! I slept in a little today which is great for me and have gotten quite a bit of my daily schedule done. My husband is off with our roommates running some errands so I am here with the animals with some peace and quiet. I finally finished chapter ten last night of Joshua and will be doing chapter eleven today. It is coming along nicely and it should be launching by August fifth, that is the goal anyway.

My plans for this weekend are pretty much the same as every weekend, writing my book. I like writing and it is a coping mechanism for my mental health. I just took the dogs out for some outdoor time and the puppies found a branch they wanted to play with so I brought it inside since they are teething they have something they can chew on but it will take them awhile to even break some of it up.

Today I feel pretty good and I seem to be happy so far since being back on meds and the doctor making the dosages higher. Now if I can just get my husband to clean up his man cave we will be good. We are still up in the air about moving to a place of our own since the old roommate keeps saying she is moving back in since the house is still in her name which we were going to let the landlord know she moved out and if he would rent the house to us so we could stop her from moving back in.

We are going to try and stay here for another month until this one trailer opens up September first and then we could move there and have plenty of space for the dogs to run and play. My main concern is having a large enough yard for them to run and have fun. These are my kids and I want to provide for them.

Well, it is time to get writing and I look forward to seeing some feedback on all of my writing and hope everyone has a wonderful evening. “Happy Birthday” to everyone who has a birthday today and may you have many more. Take care and God Bless.

It was two o’clock this afternoon when I woke up and feel somewhat rested. My neck was a little sore which gives me a slight headache. Other than that, everything is going pretty good. Our roommates outside dog started bleeding from his nose and mouth and we can’t figure out why, but she is asking everyone for prayers over “Rebel”.

I have begun writing the tenth chapter of my book and hopefully will be finished this evening with this chapter. I look forward to editing it and making it the best it can be before sending it to the editor. I will also be working on my notes for my addictions book because it will be so large that it will take a minute to complete but it is side work to all the other books I will be writing.

I still have some things to do today but you readers are more important so you get my attention first. I look forward to any feedback on my posts or short stories which will help create better writing.

It is time for me to work my daily list so I wish everyone a “Happy Birthday” if today is your birthday, and to everyone else, I wish for you to have a very awesome evening.

Happy Hump Day!! It is the middle of the week and only two more days until Friday. Are you not excited? I am doing good today. I am back on my meds regularly and my sugar level was 103 before dinner, so that is amazing for me. My sugar has been running 400 or better for the last year, so it is a major improvement.

I have been writing my book and I am almost finished with it, I just have two more chapters to go to have a full-length novel. I have been pretty mellow today and can feel some motivation for writing. I have also been working on getting my notes together for my other book which has been called a beast.

It is going to be a big book, or more like a manual for addictions. I am happy writing it in hopes that it will help a lot of people. I battled with a lot of addictions and know what it does to people and hard it is to overcome but I did it.

Anyway, I wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else an awesome evening. Things are great with me today and I am going to enjoy an evening with my husband and watch some movies. We had a good dinner and now it is time to wind down for the evening. So, have a great evening with your loved one.

Hello everyone! How are you today? I am doing pretty good today. I cleaned the whole house, took the animals outside to potty, and laid out meat for dinner. Now I am ready to sit down and spend some time writing and catching up on some things like being here with my friends and family and telling you how my day went or is going so far.

I sat down last night and wrote another chapter in my book which was a good thing. I have had no motivation lately and have really been hurting a lot. Last night was hard to sleep because my body ached and I kept having something like electrical shocks coursing through my body. I know that it is my peripheral neuropathy but I haven’t stayed consistent with taking the pain medication so I feel everything all day.

My husband graduated from his class Thursday night and the last thing is for him to be released from probation on the twenty sixth of this month so it is almost here. We have a vacation planned for October to get away and have some fun so we are anticipating that as well.

Everything is going pretty good today and I am still on my writing schedule and look forward to publishing the next book and getting it out to all of you readers out there. It is now time to get back to my writing and I will talk again soon. Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else, have a great day! 🙂

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, everyone! How are we doing today? It is such a beautiful day outside and my mental health status is doing pretty good today. Physically, my body aches a little but not enough to make me stay in bed all day being unproductive. My husband got up today and actually swept and mopped the floors for me. We are waiting for one of his friends to come help him with the transmission to our truck so that we can get it running.

I have gotten my to-do lists created and ready and I feel pretty good about it. Things have calmed down since the roommate left. I feel less stressed and my husband has been better as well. We are meeting with his case worker today to find out about our housing voucher for a place of our own. They will help us pay the rent for a year so that we can get stable financially.

I feel good about our future and making a living as a writer. Realistically, my goal has changed and will be that I should have at least thirteen books published this year. We will see, but for now, my hopes are upwards of that. I have plenty of time to write and find solace in my writing.

Well, I just got some bad news, our roommate is coming back and I instantly felt my stress level rise to becoming overwhelming. I spent a whole week getting this house cleaned from cat spray and dog urine to know she is coming back to make the house nasty again within the first week of her being here.

I have already agreed and stated to myself that I am not going to cater to her and that my goals and deadlines are more important than her. My husband will probably stay in his man cave quite a bit just to stay out of the conflict. She is going to be mad as hell because I will be refusing her, but I don’t care anymore. I need to live for me and my husband and our kids.

Sorry, I am venting some of this stress right now. I love all of my friends and family on here because you are all good listeners. I don’t know when she will be here, but I will definitely let you all know because I will need to vent again, lol.

Time for me to get some writing done but to everyone with a birthday, and you know who you are, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, I wish for you an awesomely blessed day. Take care.

We were up early this morning about six o’clock and everything started pretty good. We had coffee together and after he played a few video games, he is now outside working on our Ford Explorer to try and get it running. He just has to adjust and then bolt down the main transmission. We need a vehicle running out of the two we have.

My husband only has eighteen days remaining before he is released from probation and we are so happy. It has been a long time coming and I will be happy to see him enjoy life again without having to report his every move.

Things have been a little stressful but not like it usually is because our roommate moved out without any fair notice. She showed up in a u-haul truck to get her things and that is how we found out she was moving. So, life has been a little easier for me, except we were stuck paying the full rent and all the other bills which has left us broke and not able to pay two of our bills.

I took the last week off from writing due to having to clean the house to get rid of the urine smell from the roommate’s seven cats and two dogs which she would never let them go outside in fear of them being hit and killed. So she allowed them to urinate everywhere in the house, even on the counters and stove top. It took me two hours to clean the stove top and I am glad that they are gone.

Sorry, I had to go lay down for a bit, but I’m awake now and ready to take on the world, lol. I am sitting here making my eyes want to stay open because I have some stuff that needs to get done today. I just recently published a second book on Amazon that is a compilation of short stories that I have written. It has sold one e-book and has been read in their lending library quite a bit.

My book on Joshua is still in the works and the plan is to have the other six chapters done by next weekend so that the editing process can begin. My books are easy reads and that I write as I see it, so there is some detail in it. I am looking at having it published and ready next month. The excitement is killing me to have a full length fictional novel written.

Well, I need to be moving on to my next to-do list item and wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, “Happy Saturday”. Take care.

 

Daily Journal 7/1/2017

Well, yesterday was a long day for me. Fighting with Amazon to get my manuscript right on the upload but I managed to get it up on there. I now have two published books up on Amazon and I feel pretty good about that. Here at home things are becoming stressed out, again. We go through this every month with our roommate about how she is moving out and her attitude changes. I have gotten to my wit’s end and now I am on another journey. I am so busy doing for everybody else and taking care of everybody else that it has hindered me from doing anything for me. Now, after talking it over and showing my anger with my therapist we decided it is time for me to do me now. To hell with everybody else and do things for me.

I am not sure if my husband understands that because of his tunnel vision for sleep, television, or video games but I do know that I don’t think he understands what all this is even doing to me or how I feel on the inside. He made the statement the other night how I am always stressed, well damn look at what I have to go through. He is right though, being here is a huge stressor and we need a place of our own. Our mental health team is working on that because both of my therapists deem this an unsafe environment for us and are looking to get us out of here asap.

I want to thank all of you, my readers, for listening and encouraging me to move forward and providing me the strength and support I need. I do appreciate each and every one of you to the fullest. I am so glad that I created this place to vent and it allows everyone the chance to get to know me and see that I am just another human that makes mistakes. But enough of that I still have a full list of to-do items to get done today and need to get started. For those who have a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, I wish a happy and blessed Saturday. Take care.

Good morning everyone! How is everyone doing this beautiful morning? Well, I feel so much better today after seeing the doctor yesterday. Hepatitis you know means inflammation of the liver, well I have Hepatitis but not the viral kind. My diabetes IS the culprit for my Hepatitis and fatty liver but it is all reversible. I just need to get my blood sugar under better management and eat better than once or twice a day and my liver will heal itself. This is such great news and a relief to me. I, mean, what else could go wrong in our lives?

We have two vehicles to which both are not running, a split personality roommate who stresses me the hell out, and nothing could seem to go right for us within the last year. We did not need to have me ill and having to worry about that too. So, it is a good day and with some good news. My therapist texted me again this morning wanting to reschedule again for tomorrow so by my schedule I have the whole day to work on my book.

I am getting ready to get a cover made for a free ebook of short stories and it won’t be long before I am finished with my manuscript of Joshua. I have enjoyed writing this book and look forward to the next one.

Well, it is a good day today and I need to get started. I have just finished my cup of coffee and ready for the day. For everyone who has a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome and blessed Wednesday. Take care.
