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.

Happy Friday, Everyone!! It is finally the end of the work week for most and I am so excited that it is over because of having to get up early to go to doctor’s appointments. I had another rough night last night with not being able to sleep even with my meds. I ended up going to sleep at about four fifteen this morning and was back up at six o’clock. I stayed up until about nine because I had to take my niece to the insurance office to get insurance on her new vehicle and when I got back home I was feeling funny and queezy so I went to bed and just got up.

I am feeling okay now and ready to get to work on today’s stuff. I have started writing my next manuscript and already have five hundred words of the first chapter written and hopefully will be finishing the first chapter today. I have so many books running through my head and it is fun writing stories as I see them in my mind like I am there with my characters. I feel the emotions and actions of them which makes it so cool.

Since moving here to my husband’s sisters house, we have been more relaxed and my husband has gone back to being the affectionate man he used to be. He took care of my feet yesterday by washing them and putting lotion on them. With me being diabetic and having health issues he does everything he can to take care of me.

Well, it’s time to get to work and start writing. I hope everyone has a great Friday and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and we’ll talk again tomorrow. 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.

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.

“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.

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.

Happy Monday everyone. Well, I’m finally up and drinking coffee trying to open my eyes. I was up until four this morning. I hate taking meds that are supposed to help me sleep and it takes them hours to kick in. I should probably take them about seven or eight o’clock but with my luck, they would kick in fast and I would be asleep by nine.

It’s a new work week and I have deadlines to get done by the end of this week and look forward to finishing my manuscript and start the first round of editing. I will be finishing up a new short story also today. I have lots of things to get done and with God’s help, I can get everything accomplished.

I feel pretty good today with no stress issues as of yet but the day is just getting started, lol. My husband is in a good mood and being a smart ass but I love him so much. He has been very supportive of my writing and wants me to do what makes me happy and that is my writing. He even goes as far as keeping my roommate off of me when I’m writing so that I am not disturbed.

Well, it’s time to get to work and I have some making up on a few things too. I hope everyone had an awesome father’s day yesterday? To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, I wish for you a very blessed and prosperous day. Have a good day! 🙂

Good morning to all my friends and family old and new. I love to see new followers every day and I appreciate everyone equally and feel like you are all part of my family. You are those who will listen to my ramblings when no one physically here with me understands. I can go into crisis mode and once I begin talking to you all here and telling you of my issues I start to feel better and it feels like you really are listening.

Anyway, today I am going back in writing mode and to hell with everything else around me. I am tired of being the maid, secretary, and dog groomer. It is time for me to do me now. Everything going on here makes me feel like the servant and slave and it stops here and now. People who are able to need to do things for themselves and let me do what I need to do for me. If something happens to me what will they do without me?

I am writing chapter seven of my second book today with a goal to have chapter seven, eight, and part of nine done today. I found out the other night that with my headphones playing music in my ears I get more writing done, so I have them on now and will be getting things done today. I look forward to finishing the manuscript and begin the editing phase. As part of my editing, I will record the reading of my manuscript so that I can hear it and make any corrections as I follow along.

I am going to get some goals done today and who knows that it could be possible to finish my manuscript today but I know that once I fall into the story I get lost and chapters become long ones. Writing is my escape mechanism from everyday drama which is what I try to avoid as much as possible. So, I want to wish everyone who’s birthday is today a very “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else an awesome and blessed day.
