I swear I didn't give up on blogging!!!!
It's midnight, and I'm fried.
Holy crap. My husband's out of town, my daughter has a cold, her birthday is tomorrow (she's 4), I haven't done a thing for her party this weekend, she had open house tonight, my boys (all 3 of them) have had a ton of homework, but football's done thank God, and I've been busting my butt to finish book two so my agent can pitch it with book one.
Ugh!!! I love the excitement, but I am soooo stressed right now.
Not really stressed, but tired. My house is a mess, the laundry is sky high, the kids have eaten cereal, candy, pancakes, candy, sandwiches, candy.... did I mention candy.....for dinner all week. Pretty pathetic, I know.
We go to Florida over Thanksgiving break, thank God. I need the break, but I'm the type of person who can't leave things unfinished. So I went through my entire first novel, made the changes I felt would make it better, and now I'm going through my entire second novel and making the changes I think it needs as well, then I only have one more chapter to write. I want to send it to my agent before I leave, so I can go and spend time with my family, and maybe even plot my third book. Oh, and relax. Wouldn't that be nice?
And the gym? Ha! I haven't been at all this week. By the way, there's a reason they invented sports bras. Ever try the eliptical at full speed? You're hanging on for dear life, going 90 freaking miles per hour, and your bra strap is slipping? If you let go, you will surely die. So you don't let go and try to jerk your girls back into place, since you were too cheap to buy a sports bra. When all of the sudden the woman next to you asks, "Oh my God, are you okay?" You are jerking so badly trying to flip them back into place, she thinks you are having a seizure, for crying out loud. Take my advice, people, and spend the money on a good sports bra. Even if you don't have much to flip, it's still painful.
Anywho, I will check out all your blogs tomorrow, I promise.
By the way, I'm reading Nancy French's book, "A Red State of Mind." It's really good and I will blog about it when I'm finished.
Talk to you all tomorrow. I need some serious sleep.
