It’s Monday!! I hope everyone has a great first day of the week. I woke up about an hour ago and noticed that it is very overcast outside and gloomy. I feel pretty good since I don’t have to get up early in the morning to take kids to school. Although, it did allow me to feel like a mother since I have to deal with infertility.

I love my great nephews to death, even when they are hellionsĀ at times. I love having kids around and watching my husband play games with them is even more fun. He is their favorite uncle and they also love him.

I am sitting here drinking my second cup of coffee trying to wake up because I have a doctor’s appointment this morning and then I get to come home and clean the rest of the house up before sitting down to get some work done. I have my list done and ready for the day’s work and will be getting things done today.

I am excited about getting some writing done along with editing a finished manuscript. I am close to getting both of them published and look forward to it. Money is tight but I am the budgeter and always stretch money to cover everything. I am waiting for my birthday and Christmas money from my dad to get any books that I have done published.

I have been working on some more short stories that will be another book, but some are for my website. It is now time to get ready for my appointment and I wish everyone with a birthday today a very “Happy Birthday” to everyone else an awesome Monday. Take care.

Hey all! How is your day going? My husband and I were up at four thirty this morning drinking coffee with my sister-in-law and I stayed up until about seven o’clock before having to go back to bed to sleep off medication. I feel pretty good this morning and did some errands today.

I am going back to couponing to create a stockpile of stuff again. I find it relaxing and it keeps me focused. Plus, I like saving money. I have bought about five hundred dollars worth of food and only paid one hundred and thirty dollars for it.

I have been editing “The Battle for Joshua” one chapter at a time with two rounds of editing. I have already gone through the whole manuscript with the red pen and now I am using my editing software for the second round. The third round will be having it recorded and listening and following along to see if I missed anything. After that, it goes to an editor for professional editing. I am looking forward to it getting published.

I have already written the third chapter of the next book and will continue to write some more on the book this evening. It will about thirteen chapters and I feel it will be a good story. It is the first book in a series that will be very interesting to read.

Well, I am going to finish this post so that I can begin working on my book again. “Happy Birthday” to all that have a birthday today. Everyone else I hope you have a very pleasant evening. Take care.

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.

“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.

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday. It has been a beautiful day at my sister-in-law’s house and have spoken to my husband twice today. It’s doing me some good to get away from the tent and my stepmother and I am feeling pretty relaxed. I have been spending most of the day taking notes from some book publishing courses and will be doing some writing here shortly. I was up with my sister-in-law until about one o’clock this morning working on my book.

I have one of my older dogs with me here and miss the other three at home. I miss my husband but we needed this time apart from each other. I will be going home tomorrow and then back to the new house on Tuesday to do some more work on it. It is hard to get it done fast on a fixed income but we are managing. My sister-in-law is pretty agitated with her current situation and wanted some company so we can lean on each other.

I have gotten back on my medications regularly now and I seem to be leveling out and becoming more stable. For most of the people around me, that is a good thing. Well, it is early evening here and the sunset is beautiful. I am able to sit relaxed and think a little more clearly and have become a little more productive instead of sitting in a funk because of my mental status. Everyone has been very supportive and enlightening.

I have learned some new things within my publishing notes, webinars, and study courses. It has been an awesome experience learning all these new things to get my books ready for the world of becoming a published author. I learn things through my writer groups on facebook and see how many of them are very supportive. I look forward to checking in every day and seeing what new things have been going on and what I might have missed.

So, everything on my end is mellowing out for now and I can only do things to keep positive but God knows I am going to hate to have to go back to that house and tent tomorrow. I have to because I miss my husband and other dogs and they are the only reason I am going back. Well, let me get off of here and get some writing done and I look forward to my next update tomorrow so I wish everyone an awesome and blessed day.
