Good morning, everyone. I can say it is a beautiful day outside, just a little chilly like a Fall morning. I have had my coffee for the morning and a nice hot shower. I have a doctor’s appointment around noon and then it is home to work on books.

I began the second round of editing on the second chapter of “The Battle for Joshua” and it is coming along nicely. There are not too many mistakes at all. It will be an easy read which is a good thing and I am anxious about publishing it. It will be going to the editor next week for a final edit.

I am getting better from being sick almost a month, but my husband has been coming down sick for the past few days. He is like me because neither of us likes to be sick. I feel so bad for him being sick but the only thing I can do is take care of him until he gets better.

We might have to take our five and a half-month-old puppy to vet because we noticed she has a large lump on the top of her head. It isn’t painful to her and could be a number of things but we need to find out if it is cancerous. She is my baby and I can’t see losing her.

Anyway, it is time for me to get ready for my appointment and I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else a very Happy Monday!! Take care.

Good evening, everyone. So sorry for it being so late but was doing some fall cleaning which needed to be done seriously. It has been an exhausting day with all the cleaning and what not but my mood is okay today.

I have been out of my fast acting insulin for a few days now and only surviving on the long-acting which has been doing good keeping my sugar down. I have been watching what I eat so that there are no sugar spikes. I will be going to a convenient care clinic tomorrow to get a prescription for fast-acting insulin because my next primary care doctor appointment isn’t until October thirtieth.

I felt good enough to cook dinner today which was roast with potatoes, carrots, and some onions. It came out so delicious and everyone liked it. I have not cooked a good meal like that in a very long time and told my sister-in-law that we need to go back to having good dinners on Sunday which used to be one of my traditions.

As for my writing, I am working on the second round of editing for “The Battle for Joshua” and have plans to send to the editor around the end of the month. I have begun the fourth chapter of my next book which is the first in a vampire series and I look to reading it when done.

My sleep has been broken again and then I got a call that I cant see my mental health doctor or therapist at this one clinic because of my Medicare insurance. So tomorrow I will be calling another place and seeing what they have to offer. I have seen this doctor before and she prescribed me medication that actually didn’t work for me so I am curious as to what she will give me now?

I am finally winding down being sick and now my husband is sick and not feeling well at all. He brags that he doesn’t get sick but sure enough, he was wrong and has what every other person in this house has and that is an upper respiratory infection with bronchitis. I am finally getting over mine and loving every minute of it because I hate being sick.

I should be able to get back on schedule tomorrow now that I feel better but we will see. I hope everyone had a great weekend and look forward to going back to work tomorrow? To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else I wish you to have a quiet relaxing night. Take care.

Goodmorning to all. I hope your day is going well? I have been up since six thirty this morning sitting here having coffee with my husband and sister-in-law. I am ready to get my day started and very motivated. It is beautiful outside for a fall morning and I will be sitting outside while completing the first round of editing on “The Battle for Joshua”. I should have it ready for publishing about the first of November.

Everyone here is in good spirits this morning and my mood is good. I slept for a few hours during the night but took a six-hour nap yesterday so I am good with sleep. I am looking forward to a peaceful weekend with no kids here and just us adults. It will be so nice.

So, today’s goal is to finish chapter three of the new book and to get the first round of editing done on the other. I am also going to get the rest of the house cleaned and another short story posted. So it is time to get started and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else have an awesome Friday. Take care.

Good morning all you special people of the world. It is a great day today and beautiful outside. I went to sleep with my husband last night at two o’clock this morning but woke up at five o’clock this morning fresh and awake. I am sitting here at the kitchen table spending time with my husband while he drinks his coffee and wakes up.

I have been working my schedule this morning and feel pretty good. My mood is in good spirits even though I am still battling being sick and coughing up crap. In a few minutes, I will be working on my next short story for the site and hope everyone has been enjoying my stories?

I am working on finishing the third chapter of my book today and will be editing “The Battle for Joshua” today per my schedule. I should be sending it to the editor on first of the month or sooner so that I can get it out to the public for reading. Well, let me get things going and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an awesome day.

Hello everyone. Glad to see we are all here since all the conspiracy theories about Revelation 12 and being the end of the world have spread like wildfire. I have been watching the news about all of the earthquakes, hurricanes, and wildfires and it has been horrible. One would think the world is coming to an end because the earth is showing its revenge on us for raping it of its natural resources.

I, on the other hand, have been stricken with sinusitis and feel like my face and head is going to explode. I have been sick for about three days now and in the bed for most of it. I feel so bad but I needed to sit up and do something or my body will hurt from laying down so much. I figured I would come on here and check in with everyone.

My writing has been going well thus far. My manuscript of “The Battle for Joshua” is complete and going through rounds of editing and I have also started my next book which the first chapter is already done and will be working on it some more this evening. I look forward to sharing them with the world and having everyone read my stories.

My husband has been taking care of me and having everyone leaving me alone so that I can get better and back to writing. He understands and supports my writing because it makes me happy. That is all he wants for me is to be happy and I love him so much for that. So, it is time for some medicine and I will leave you for today. I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else a very good day. 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.

Hello, everyone. Sorry to have disappeared for a few days. I have been dealing with some health issues that we haven’t quite figured out what is going on yet. I have been so tired and feeling so fatigued that all I do is want to sleep. I have no energy for anything and it frustrates me because I don’t know what is causing it. It has been going on for a couple weeks now but I will be seeing my therapist on Wednesday to see if she might have any ideas.

I actually sat here yesterday forcing myself to stay up and created my book writing monthly goal sheet. With everything from writing the chapters to three rounds of editing to sending it off to a professional editor, I will be writing my current list of books well into February two- thousand and nineteen. Not considering any other books I come up with between now and then, lol. I have a few ideas for some more but I have jotted them down just until I get my already extensive list of books down some. I plan to stay busy and creative.

As far as how my day is going, it is manageable. Yesterday my nephew’s girlfriend celebrated one of her son’s birthdays with a party to which I pretty much stayed in my room. I have been feeling somewhat isolated the last week or so and don’t care to be bothered with anyone else. I put on that happy face for everyone in the house but my husband and sister-in-law know that I am not being real and hiding what is going on on the inside. I am a person who holds everything in until I find a safe way to release it. I call it throwing up to my therapist, lol.

I know that I am getting older because of the way my body aches and hurts but I try to stay young at heart. Walking is difficult at times because my feet haven’t been cooperating with me lately, or hurting so much that I can’t walk. My husband tries to get me up and walking throughout the day but it hurts so bad. I remember back in two- thousand and ten when I walked from Orlando, Florida to the border of Texas for a charity walk for the homeless and here I can barely walk about thirty feet without hurting or stopping to rest.

I need to find a way to motivate myself and to keep myself up during the day but cannot figure out what to do. I have no problem sitting up at night and I have stayed up until three or four o’clock in the morning without even being tired. Those are days when I would get up in the morning and stay up all day too. I don’t know but I will be seeing my primary care physician on the twenty- sixth of this month if it is not mental health being the culprit.

Well, I will stop here so that I can make use of my up time and finish the last chapter of my book “The Battle for Joshua”. I will begin the first round of editing tomorrow and look forward to sending it off to the editor. So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else have an awesome Sunday. Take care.

Good morning, everyone!! How are we this morning? I woke up feeling pretty good this morning and ready for whatever the day may bring. I have been working my schedule this morning and so far I am on track. I have informed everyone in the house that I will be busy working and will not accept any interruptions.

I will be completing my Joshua manuscript today and printing it up for editing. I will hopefully today or tomorrow be starting my next manuscript while having time set aside for editing the other one. I have a whole day scheduled for working and look forward to seeing my progress.

My writing is now my life and it makes me happy and gives me a feeling of completeness. My husband supports me in my endeavor and I thank him for that every day. Well, I need to get going on my next task, so to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday!” and to everyone else have an awesome hump day. Take care.
