Not sure that’s ever going to happen. I feel like the hurrier I go, the behinder I get! I’m being pulled in a million different directions. I want to do it all and can’t. I have my job, which I still love. Probably more than ever. I have so many stories bouncing around in my head. So many to be told, not enough hours in the day to write them all. I have that perfect doll of a granddaughter who had me from the moment we knew she was coming. I see her every day and the rare days I don’t see her, I have withdrawals! All of my kids are gone. Although, oldest son came back home today for a month with his gf and cat while they look for a place. My oldest daughter is getting married in October. My youngest son is just wrapping up the first phase of Marine boot camp. I miss him so much, but I get a grip on the mommy emotions. He’s going to come home a US Marine. I could not be prouder. My youngest daughter and husband are working hard trying to buy a house. Hubby is still in a cast from his Achilles surgery.
Then there is my puppy, Bella. We’ve been busy going to obedience and handling classes. We have our first conformation show this Saturday and our second one Sunday. I’m wanting to chicken out, but we’ve both worked too hard to do that. So wish us luck!
Of course, during all of this, I had BLOOD LAW, the first book in my Blood Moon Rising trilogy release last week. Copy edits of ENEMY MINE went back Monday, I’m waiting on copy edits for WANTED, my novella in the MEN OUT OF UNIFORM antho I’m in with my friends Maya Banks and Sylvia Day, plus I’m working on BLOOD RIGHT, book two in the Blood Moon Rising trilogy. I’m also working on a proposal and wanting to get back to my Blood Sword Legacy stories!
And somewhere in all of that, I really need to launch my next First Line Contest!! I need a new laptop too, this one is about to implode. But who has time to shop for one? Then there is the setting up part, which I hate doing. I don’t like to try and get used to a new keyboard in the middle of a book.
I have a slew of other things that need my attention, like the laundry. I haven’t planted one flower pot this year! Last year I lived for my flowers, now I just say hello to the ones that survived the winter and walk on by.
What I really need is a vacation. One of those kind that you go to a tropical beach somewhere and sip lava flows and do nothing else. But who has time?
Is it me, or are we all over extended?
