Off The Cuff

The countdown is on…

HAPPY 6TH OF JUNE!!!

No, this is not a special day for me.  Not that I know of anyway.  I just wanted to shout that out there, LOL

So, there’s only 14 more school days left and the kids will be free from their institutions LOL.  Then they will have summer holidays that runs for about two and a half months.  Well here it’s that long. Depending on where you are in the world, your Summer vacation might be longer or shorter.

But just think on that for a moment though.

Kids have 2.5 months of vacation.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have that too?

Seriously,, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have summers off without loosing any pay?

Then again, maybe not.

Though, summers are not all fun and games.  Especially for my two kids.  And especially not for this year.

My oldest is autistic, so he needs a routine.  I just wish part of his routine would to realize that you can sleep in during summer holidays.  Then again, it would be awesome if he would do that on weekends, LOL.  But at least it keeps me from sleeping too much day away.

My youngest on the other hand, love sleeping in.  Can’t say as I blame her,,, I love my bed too.  But there’s things that just needs to get done.  Eventually she will come to realize that.

However on that note, I do have a math workbook to help her prepare for the next grade.  And she’s got the first 4 Harry Potter books to read.  I’m still working on book 5, *rolls eyes*.  Why did this book have to be the one with 800 PAGES?!  Seriously Ms. Rowling,,, what the devil were you thinking?  🙂

Speaking of writing.  I have 2 of my own to get finished up.  Maybe this will be the summer that I’ll actually get them done.  This is why I need an agent, preferably for free, LOL.  Although, I do have amazing friends who keeps me on my toes and keeps pushing me to get them done.  Especially the sequel.

Seriously, to those of you who has the first book,,, I’m reeeeeeeeeally sorry it’s not done yet.  I’m now thinking I should have just waiting on publishing it in the first place until I can have a proper ending for it.  I’m trying to keep it the same amount of pages as the first, but it’s becoming to be a chore.  I can only drag out so many scenes before it starts to become boring.

Plus making sure the first lot of chapters reads right is a challenge as well.  So not only do I need an agent,,, apparently I need an editor as well.  There’s only so many times I can re-read it to make sure I have all the grammar errors corrected.  Though, I have to thank Word for underlining words I’ve either spelled wrong, or a sentences that doesn’t make sense.  And someone who’s dyslexic trying to figure out another way to write a sentence to make it read right is a challenge in itself.

Hence another reason for such a delay in getting anything published.  Distractions.  And I have a lot of them, LOL.

And specking of distractions,, this is one of them.  So I shall head off and get some things accomplished today.  Wish me luck, 🙂

Until next time,,,

Off The Cuff

New Beginnings

Usually to start something new, or make a fresh start is done in January, right in the new year.  Well, my typical fresh starts start when the kids go back to school and I have to get back into the routine of getting up early, making lunches while having a cuppa tea, and checking Facebook, Twitter and my emails before getting kids up for the day.  Mind you, this year started off a tad rocky, but I’m hoping that come Monday, the start of a full week of school for them, will mean a full week of concentrating on things that I need to do for me.

Mind you, I will probably need the first couple of days setting up some sort of routine for myself.  I dispise housework. But I know that I have to do it.  And so I’ll drag my feet, and try and kick me arse up off the chair and get things done.  You never really know how fast time flies until you sit down with your tea, in front of the laptop, look down at the time — 8:15am,, then the next thing you know, the front door pops open and there’s one of your kids coming home again.

If you’re new to following me,, WELCOME!!  To those of you who have been with me for a long time,,, I’m soooooooooooo sorry, LOL.

I keep changing the look of this blog – mainly cause I can’t find one that SCREAMS at me.  So I’ll play around with the ones that’s available (which are usually the free ones).  And I keep saying that I’m going to write every day.  Well,, I’ve failed on that terribly.  That tends to happen a lot,,,, I figure if someone like Joe Mallozzi can do it,, so can I.  But then again,, something “shiny” will come across my mind and,,, well,,, you know the rest.

I’m also considering on posting some video blogs on here too, via my YouTube channel.  It might cut down the typing time of letting y’all know how my day is going,, has gone,, or if I’m still in zombie mode and haven’t had my cuppa tea yet. 🙂

So I’ll cut this short,, and just say that I HOPE to return again tomorrow (at some point) and either say something comical, deep, or meaningful.

Until next time,

K, xo
