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,

Time flies

June.  Today is the first day of June.  Wait!!  WHAT???

How did this happen?

One moment it felt like I was sending my kids off for their first day of school.  And now, they are almost done.  Seriously, time really did fly.

This year is half over and I still have so much to get done before 2016 rolls in.  One thing of course is my sequel that I’m still writing.  Yes.  I know.  That should’ve been done ages ago.  But you know when you have people out there who goes out of their way to put you down, or to constantly be a thorn in your side, it seems that their voices are the loudest that linger in my head.  I know that I shouldn’t let the haters win.  And that’s what they are,, are haters, jealous little dweebs that’s got nothing better to do than to put others down to make themselves look good.  Well, eventually, their luck will run out and they won’t have anyone else who will want to listen to them constantly put others down.

Luckily I have the most awesome friends out there who are always there when I need a shoulder.  Anyway,, I’m not going to dwell on such matters.  I’m going to move on.  Enough of the drama.

So anyway, about my projects.

Yes, I’m still writing the sequel to my first novel – The One: Love found in unexpected places.  If you’ve read the first one,, rest assured that this one is not so graffic as The One.  LOL.  And there will be a proper ending.  I will be ending off this storyline so I can start on another story idea that keeps screaming around in my head.  So in order for me to get that one written,, I really have to finish off this sequel.

I have a title for it, I have for the longest time now,, but once I’m almost done writing, I’ll share the title, along with it’s cover.  I have a friend who’s willing to do me a new cover for the sequel.  Mainly because the picture I found online, I have no idea who the actual owner is.  And because I don’t need the bad name of ripping someone off of their work, I have decided to ask a friend for a bit of help.  Besides,, I’m not one for taking something that’s not mine and taking credit for it.  Even if I edited it,, I will know it’s not totally mine, and so will the real owner if she or he sees it.  It’s not in my nature.

I know a few of my friends on Twitter are patiently waiting for my new web series to happen.  Don’t worry friends, it will happen.  My co-host and awesome friend is having some time to herself, but no worries,, it will happen.  Though, with the summer holidays upon us, we will most likely aim for September.  Albeit, I haven’t ran that past her yet, so don’t be surprised if I make a small post to update that, 🙂

Anyway,, with my writing, and a highly probable web series happening,, this will prove to be another awesome adventure.  Now if I can keep Oreo off the table and squeezing herself between me and the laptop. LOL.  I love you kitty, but not when I have work to do.  Good thing I know where the keys are that I dont’ have to look at the keyboard when typing.  LOL.

So like always,, have a great day (or night), and we’ll chat again soon.

Until next time.

Finding friends in the unlikeliest of places

From an early age, you are drawn to a certain bunch of people who usually stay life-long friends. Even when you graduate from high school, you all manage to keep in touch. Well, for most people I’d like to think this to be true. And for the most part it is. But for me,,, I’ve had my disappointments time and time again.

To say that I have trust issues is putting it mildly.  I’ve been so many people’s scapegoat  for their own misfortunes instead of owning up to their faults just to make themselves look like angels in their family’s eyes, that they didn’t care how it would make me look to those who knew us.  Mind you, only one friend ever came forward and apologized to me.  I’ll never get that from the other.

Then there was that website I used to volunteer write for.  Longest 2 years of my life.  Sometimes I feel that I wasted my time on there, but then I wouldn’t have found out that I can write.  And write well.  Being dyslexic was hard during my school days.  And sometimes it still is.  Diagnosing myself with the problem at age 14 was the biggest light bulb moment of my life.  I no longer felt stupid.  That there was a reason for a lot of things.

I actually wrote and published my first ever book.  And yes,,  to those of you who have a copy of it,, I’m still working on the sequel.  LOL.  It’s something I thought I’d never ever do.  But with the love and support of awesome friends, I done it!!

Only one friend growing up, that knew me very well, was there to support me.  She knows who she is.  There’s no words I can write to let her know how much I appreciated her standing by my side.  OK, well, not literally standing next to me,, that’s impossible as she’s on the mainland, LOL.  But you get my point. 🙂

All the other friends are those I met later in life, and most of them are online friends.  People I’ve never met, and may never get to meet in person either, but I know they’ve been there for me every step of the way.

And even like the past, being drawn to certain people, it does happen again.  But this time it has a different feeling.  It’s doesn’t feel like those who are only pretending to be your friend, this time it’s with people who genuinely care.

I’ve made friends with the most unlikeliest of people thanks to Facebook (and later on Twitter).  We’ve cried together, laughed together, even laughed until we cried together. They are the friendships that I’ll hold dear.

So being one of the biggest Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit geek out there,, I’ll leave you with this quote from Bilbo.  “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.” 

Until next time.
