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.

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.

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!! 🙂

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.

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.

Good morning everyone. It is seven twenty this morning and the sun is shining. Today is the day that I get my test results and I am full of anticipation. I am waiting for the coffee to finish brewing and was up until three this morning because I couldn’t sleep. How are all of you doing this gorgeous morning?

I am working my schedule this morning since I redone it last night. I have to incorporate any doctor visits in it so that everything will still get done. I will be finishing a short story I have been working on for a few days this morning. I will also get some writing on my book did before leaving for my doctor this afternoon and then about another hour more when I return home.

I sat working on my monthly goals last night and everything looks good and efficient. I am a list person who creates a list of everything every day that needs to get done. I have been working lists for as long as I could remember. It helps me stay focused and I seem to accomplish almost everything on my list every day as long as there is nothing to deter me.

I feel pretty good today, not so much anxiety but that could be because of lack of sleep too. 🙂 I just woke my husband up with a cup of instant coffee because our coffee maker refuses to brew this morning. I am not going to buy another coffee maker because it seems that every time I put a little money to the side for book publishing expenses, something always comes up that I need to spend that money on. I refuse now to spend any more of my book money on this house.

My roommate buys things and then lets her animals tear it up and I am not going down like that. I have done everything that I can to keep this house clean and getting rid of roaches just for her to go behind me and leave messes and food laying around that draws more roaches. She really gets me with that.

Well, I need to move on to my next scheduled thing and wish everyone a blessed and prosperous day. I want to wish everyone that has a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and I will post an update when I return from the doctor today. Have a great day!

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 evening everyone. How are you doing this beautiful evening? My night has been going okay so far. I went this morning to the diagnostics office and had the CT Scan of my stomach hernia which I call my alien baby and will be seeing my doctor on Wednesday to get the results and what the course of action will be. I am concerned as to what it is doing or how they plan to address it. It causes me to have constant nausea, I can’t lay on my stomach without pain, and whenever I eat something it hurts. I can only hope for the best.

I have spent the better part of today regrouping myself and getting my goals, deadlines, and schedules revamped for more efficiency. I am taking some of my short stories and compiling them into an e-book as a freebie. I am getting ready to send it to the editor this week and have been doing my first round of editing on it as well. I know some of you may not have gotten a chance to read them on their sites so I am putting the best ones together in a free e-book.

I am still working on my book “The Battle for Joshua” and should, fingers crossed, have the first draft done by the end of next week. I get so caught up in the story that chapters become more than ten pages each. I am rather enjoying writing it and look forward to sharing it with everyone. It will be a full-length novel and you should enjoy reading it as it keeps my attention while writing it. Look for it soon, but I will keep you updated.

Well, it is time for me to finish some things up before bed and I wish whoever has a birthday today, a “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, an awesome and blessed evening.

Good morning friends and family. It is a beautiful day here in Dalton, Georgia after a nice thunderstorm last night. It smells so fresh and clean outside. My apologies for missing in action the last couple of days. It has been so hectic here with doctor appointments and then yesterday I tripped on some steps and strained my back a little but enough to make it hard to walk or sit. We have been doing some spring cleaning around here and getting donations together for the flea market this next weekend for my nonprofit that assists the homeless and needy.

I have gotten everything together and in place so that June first I will be back on schedule and everyone knows that I will NOT deviate from it unless it is for important things like doctor appointments or grocery shopping. My writing is important and also a coping mechanism for my mental health issues like anxiety. I have had a few good reviews on my short stories and I want to say thank you to them for the comments and that I appreciate you all very much.

It is that time again to end this so that I may get my day started and this coffee tastes so good right now and that I need to run to Walmart to get some things. I wish everyone an awesome Sunday and be blessed.
