Happy February!!

I know we’ve been into this month for the past 7 days, but hello February.

And looking back, the last time I posted in here was in November. That’s a bit of a break.  And it wasn’t intentional.  I really need to find things that’s interesting to write about.  I wonder if I should post a bit of pieces of what I write about?  Whether it’s short stories, poems, or something.

In the past I’ve asked my readers what they would like to see me write about.  Hence the reason for the long breaks in posts.  I suppose, if I had a general idea of what people find interesting, it would be easier on having something to write about.

I will not be posting about politics.  For one main reason, I hate it.  I find it brings out the worse in people.  So that’s off the table.

Actually, since November, we welcomed our new niece into the world.  Because she was a preemie, she had to stay in hospital for awhile.  But she’s home and doing awesomely.  I love being an aunt. And having just the two nieces, and a fur nephew Joey (my sisters cat), there’s no better feeling (other than being a mom of course, lol).

Now with school half way done for the year, I better start making plans for what to do on their off time.  We usually take the kids on a trip of sorts, camping usually.  This year might be a little different, can’t say what yet as we (hubby and I) haven’t really discussed things.

Then it’s another trip to Cuba.  Love that place, especially the people.  So I’m still crossing my fingers that happens this year.  Still waiting on the prices to drop more than what it is. 🙂

Of course I can’t forget Scifi on the Rock.  I’m NOT missing that convention.  Besides the guests (who are awesome this year), it’s a great mother-daughter weekend.  And it’s going to be wicked because we are dressing up.  Can’t say of what, going to leave that one for later.  But it will be a fun weekend.

I will have to leave this post as is for now.  I have some things to get done.  But I want to wish you all a great day.

Until next time.

Updates…

Good day everyone.

Today I thought I’d give everyone the heads up as to what my adventures will be in the days and weeks to come.

Well, for the next 2 weeks, I’ll be concentrating on getting as much writing done as possible while the kids are still in school.  Yes, there’s only 2 weeks left and they will be finished school for the summer break and therefore will interrupt my writing.

Mind you, I won’t be abandoning writing altogether for the two and half months they have during the summer break.  I’ll be taking every moment I have to add more words to the screen as I can to get this accomplished.

What’s the date for my books to be finally published?  Answer to that is,, Not a friggen clue. LOL

I try to give myself due dates and they all fail.  Miserably.  So the only thing I can tell everyone is,, have patience and send me all the luck you can to help get this done.

No, that’s not a typo.  I did say books.  I’m courageously  writing 2 of them at the same time.  Not sure if that’s clever or insane.  Either way, I’m about on par with both of them, so instead of only having the one book done and published,, I will most likely have both books ready for my readers.

The one thing I’m definitely looking into though as I’m writing these is an agent to help me promote and keep me on track with the writing-to-publishing deadlines.  Frankly I suck at promotion.  Especially for myself.  I’m awesome with getting the word out there to help others with their projects, movies, tv shows, whatever they have on the go.  But I’m really bad at my own accomplishments.  Maybe I should take a page out of J.K. Rowling’s book on not giving up.  I might actually get somewhere with it.

As for the 2 months of summer vacation, that’s a whole other list of things right there.  I’ll be camping with my family, visiting friends who we missed last time and writing.  I’ll either be taking the laptop with me, or doing it the old fashioned way – pencil & paper.

So I’ll be trying to focus more onto the writing bit.  I do have access to my various social media sites for communication with friends (or anyone who leaves me a message for that matter).  I have an author Facebook page and Twitter.  I also have a comments section here on this site for those of you who wish to send me messages (or you can comment to any post I’ve made).  I also have Instagram if you wish to follow me on there as well.

So starting tomorrow I’ll be MIA for a while until I get these projects done.  But like I said, those options I have highlighted above are the only ways to reach me.  I’ll still be writing my occasional post here and there, so I’m not that far away from you all, 🙂

Anyway,, I’m signing off.  Have a great day.

Until next time,

K ❤

17 days and counting…

Well it’s been that kind of a day.  I managed to reclaim a bit more of my dining room, but I still have a ways to go before I’m satisified.  I can be very determined when I need to be.

So what have I done today?  Besides the typical housework?  Well, I had to do the usual “Mom you’re awesome” thing.  Because my daughter don’t watch her schedule,, I had to bring her instrument to her school this morning for her band class before lunch.  Yes,, I’m going for MOM OF THE FREAKING YEAR!!! 🙂

Upon getting back from that,, I called up my sis inlaw.  I could spend all day on the phone just to have that voice breaking the silence.  Then again, that’s what my music is for.  Which I usually have turned up full so no matter where in the house I am, I can hear the songs blaring.  Though, most times I just have the TV on.  Anything to break the quietness.  However, there’s times that I love it.  To turn everything off and just listen to nothing.  Until the roaring of cars speeding up the street.  Never have I ever wanted to live off in the woods somewhere, secluded with only my thoughts.  I think that’s why I’d love to be living out of the city.  It’s too busy and you have too many people in your business.

Though, you’ll get that anywhere you live, but not where I have in mind.  All I need is to win the lotto and POOF!!  Sounds lovely doesn’t it?  To be living somewhere you only can dream of.  My sanctuary is in the country, off the beaten path, in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway,, today starts 17 days and counting to the end of another school year.  Yep,, 17 days.  Of course, this is excluding weekends.  17 days of having to get up early and pack lunches.  Albeit, I should be doing it the night before, but then if I do, I’d only sleep in.  And I knows I would.  17 days of small arguements of getting the kids out of bed to get dressed.  And fed.  17 days of,,,,

But then what?  Well, now I have 23 days (including weekends) to plan a summer filled with fun.  No pressure.

I’m not that creative.  And I’ll be the first person to admit to that.  I had to call a friend to give me some ideas of what to do for my own daughter’s birthday party.  I had tie dying shirts in mind, but once I seen a video on Youtube of what’s involved to it,, I had to cancel that.  Mind you, that can still be something that I can do with my kids during the summer, so it’s not totally out.  But my friend was able to give me some other great ideas.

Plus I still have my Harry Potter series to read.  Thanks to some awesome friends of mine,, we are having a book club of sorts.  Where I have never read Harry Potter, one friend said she’d read along with me then we can have a discussion after each book.  What started off with just 2 of us, have now snowballed into about 7 or 8 friends.  This is so awesome.  Although, I have some massive reading to do.  I’m just starting chapter 12 of Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone and we’re supposed to be done on the 6th.  Yes, in 4 days!!!  I better get cracking. LOL.

And on that note,, I really should head off.  Kids will be home soon and I have some things to finish up before they arrive.   Anyway, thank you for popping by.  Wishing you all an awesome day (or night).

Until next time,

K ❤
