The Busy Life of a Mom Wannabe Writer

So so so incredibly behind on this blog!  Here's an update of what's been going on with me.

  • Got one sinus infection.  Got over it without having to go to the doctor.
  • Was fine and busy exercising, doing things for church, and weeding my "to-be" garden area.
  • Got another sinus infection.  Darn those allergies!  Still got over it without having to go to the doctor.  Just barely though--I've been through 2 of those things in one month.  If I get another one--going to the doctor.
  • Working on my little one's first year scrapbook album.  At least trying to get as much in it as possible from already printed pics then getting more printed so I can get it all finished up.
  • Researching digitally printed albums in book form.  However, the cheapest place I have found is snapfish for a 12x12 album.  Hopefully I can use what I've already put together.
  • Been thinking of working on my Paranormal Young Adult Romance novel. 
  • Been thinking of working on some of my vampire stories.
  • Also been thinking of planning some kind of other more fantasy story.
  • Getting ready to go on a trip for a few days next week.
  • Doing more things for church.
  • Being a mom first and foremost in everything I do.
Things have been manically crazy.  I always feel like singing "Manic Monday" every day of the week.  Because for one reason or another, I'm busy even when I don't feel like I'm busy.  The life of a mom and when it gets to the "me" time stage to do whatever I want (which should be writing), it's about midnight and my pillow is calling my name.

Soon though.  Soon I will write again.

Becoming Well Rounded

So lately I've been such a BAD blogger for writing!  I've been trying to figure out what to cover for my next writing group meeting next Wednesday night, doing things for church, reading like crazy, crocheting, baking (you know, all that mommy/wifey stuff) and really really trying to get back into shape. 

So what's been taking the beating while I've been doing everything else?

My writing!

I've been reading through my stuff, but none of it seems to be "clicking" with me at the moment.  Yes, I've been lazy too, but the laziness is attributed to a sinus infection/cold that I've had for the past two weeks and am now getting over.  My energy is rebuilding.

The good news is:

When I am stories start to churn.  My mind says, "what about this?  what about that?"  So hopefully I can really get into gear and get writing again soon.

Oh, and I posted a comment in my last post on the blog award--I only had one guess, but the truth is #3.  I did learn to skate backwards and a couple little stances and turns on the ice rink with my church's youth group back when I was 14 or 15 years old.  Loved it and I always look at the ice rinks or figure skaters and still want to learn how to do that!  Maybe one year when I get back into dance and ballet that I can also take up skating. We'll see.
