Hello you wonderful people out there. It has been a crazy week and I have not bothered to update my blog. I shouldn”t say not bothered because that is not correct. I have worried about not being able to update it. I have just been too frikken busy. It has been very hectic at my day job and I try to do as much writing as I can in the evenings. I was working on (actually just finished today) another Amish Fiction Romance story, but this time I hit a brick wall in terms of where I wanted the story to go. It felt like all my creativity disappeared and I couldn’t for the life of me, think of anything. I would sit down at the laptop and pouffff, my mind would go blank. Isn’t it strange how that happens. This weekend, I sat down Saturday morning and it was as if the ideas started to flow like lava – I managed to finish a 13,000 and some book in two days. Isn’t it funny how that works?
For some of you thinking, Does this woman not have a life? I will explain. My wonderful husband is on the waiting list for back surgery so his evenings and weekends are spent lying on the couch because the pain becomes too much to bear when he is standing or sitting. He manages to go to work everyday but by the time he get home he heads straight to the couch for the remainder of the evening. My heart breaks for him because he is an active guy and having to stay put on the couch is just tearing him up. But, one has to do what one has to do. I know once he has surgery, our lives will return to normal, so until then I have lots of time to write.
Tonight is the season finale of The Walking Dead. Must say, I am excited and nervous beyond anything I have ever experienced. Who is going to die tonight? I know I will be on pins and needles through out the show.
I was going to update my Weight Loss Page even though my week has not been as successful as I wanted it to be. I have been eating healthy but there was my husbands birthday on Wednesday and of course there was cake. And with the cake there was ice cream. And of course I had to have some so that threw my eating plan way off kilter. I will make a point of sitting down tomorrow night and updating my page and hope for a better week. tI will actually be grocery week so I can buy good healthy things for me to eat.
This brings me to another beef. Adult children living at home. And I can post this rant because my kids do not read anything I write. Both my children are still living at home and going to school and the rules are that with them working strange hours I would be responsible for one meal and one meal only – Supper. If they wanted things like Ice Cream or chips or snacks or lunch items – they could buy them themselves. Is that reasonable? After all, I am not a restaurant that caters to everyone’s taste. My daughter is great – she will go to the grocery store and pick herself up items that she wants and never complains. My 22 year old son on the other hand will eat anything that he can get his hands on and that is free. At 57 I have to hide my food. Trying to buy myself healthy choices is difficult and I feel like such a meany when I do buy something and I have to say to him – Don’t Touch It’s Mine. As a Mom, we are used to providing for our children, making sure they have enough food so it is very hard to say NO you can’t have that. My son will go to the grocery store to pick up a few things and he will come back with a bag of chips and a bottle of pepsi. I wonder what his cupboards will be like when he finally moves out – two boxes of KDinner and a bag of chips. Hopefully if I get invited over to a meal, I won’t have to bring my own.
