My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

I’m Still Here, I Promise

I know it’s been like a month since I’ve posted. Time has gotten away from me, been super busy with preparing for the arrival of our first little one. June 16th is coming up quickly–although I’ll technically be full term (or 37 weeks) May 26th. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind him coming then–or even a little earlier. I’m ready to meet my little one and get my body back πŸ˜›

Anyway, how’s life with everyone? I’m trying to catch up on blogs but it’s been difficult πŸ™‚

It’s a BOY!

AΒ  brief blog break for some personal news. I had my ultrasound today and we found out I’ll be having a boy!

He’s quite a stubborn one already though. The u/s tech was having a hard time getting him to cooperate. He wouldn’t sit still and when he did, it was like he purposely sat in a position that she couldn’t measure what she needed πŸ˜› He also had a habit of putting his arm in front of his face, as if to cover himself from sight. Ah yes, mommy’s little stubborn boy. He’s definitely getting that trait from me. Heh.

Anyway, he’s healthy, I’m healthy and the next ultrasound will be one of those 3D ones in March. Here’s a few pictures of little Thomas Edward:

This one makes it look like he's trying to break out. πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas! And Other Things

First off, wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I’m heading up to my parents’ house for the holiday, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to write while there. Of course, I haven’t been writing much on here lately…apologies for that. I don’t have much going on in my life right now that’s blog worthy.

I do hope to get back to at least a semi-normal blog pattern come 2011. I need to pick up my writing again too–that’s kind of fallen away for the time being but I do hope to get back up and start again. If I don’t this book will always remain unfinished…plus like everyone (family, friends and co-workers) keep asking me when it’s going to be done, so I can’t keep coming up with excuses forever!

EDIT: Just found this wonderful contest over at the The Ruby Slippered Sisterhood blog.Β  They’re having a Winter Writing Festival, which will sort of be like a mini-NaNo, only YOU set the goal. You get a point each day if you reached your goal, whatever that is. It’s starts on January 10th and they’re going to setup a sister site for participants to share and talk about their writing goals. This is what I needed. πŸ™‚

Anyway I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I hope to be back again blogging come 2011. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Life is Made of Awesome

September’s here, the weather’s getting cooler and my favorite season is rapidly approaching: Awesome.

Got my Avon order in today and it’s like Christmas everytime a package comes, especially when there’s fun nail polish colors.Β  πŸ™‚

Vacation to Disney World is rapidly approaching, anxious to have a break from work and just relax. Also, really looking forward to acting like a kid again and forgetting adult responsibilities for a week. How great is that?

New shows are coming on TV soon. I don’t watch much but it’s nice to have something to look forward to on certain evenings, instead of trying to fill my time watching old episodes of King of the Hill (which is still epically funny, no matter how many times I watch it).

Life is good. πŸ™‚

Another Post of Non-Interestingness

Yes, I made that last word up.Β  Adding “-ness” onto a lot of words makes life much more fun. πŸ™‚

Besides that, I really have nothing else to say. I just thought I should post since it’s been over a week since the last one and I didn’t want you, my faithful readers (if there are any left…) to think I fell off the face of the earth. Although I’ve certainly felt like I have on some days.

I’ve been so busy writing articles as well as being so flippin tired from work every day that I just want to come home and avoid spending more than ten minutes looking at a computer screen. So instead, I plop on the couch and watch movies from my instant Netflix queue, via the Wii. (I’ve watched some pretty awesome BBC mini-series the last week; I believe they are my weakness).

I did manage to get a chapter edited but only because I’m getting critiqued tomorrow. See, it takes knowing that it’s due somewhere before I actually write the silly thing.

And that, folks, pretty much sums up my super awesome and exciting life as of late.

Balancing Act

Apologies for the lack of posts again; I’ve been so busy working on my freelance writing that I tend to forget about my blog and all the other blogs I follow.

It’s a little tricky balancing my writing time between the articlesΒ and my novel. I haven’t really accomplished that yet…I’ve been so focused on the freelance writing that I haven’t given much thought to my poor, neglected novel. Anyway, I’ve been given an ultimatum to finish the novel by the end of the year, if not by the end of the summer. So I guess that means I need to figure out this balancing act soon. πŸ˜›

Lack of Posts Explained

Sorry about the lack of posts. I really haven’t had much to write about and I’ve been doing pretty poorly with my miniNano goal. It’s like the desire to write has temporarily disappeared. I say temporarily because I know it will come back (as I’m searching for it now :P). It’s not writer’s block, but more like writer-is-going-through-a-period-of-self-doubt syndrome. It must be something weird I’m going through as I’ve even lost some of my appetite. I will be fine but I had to take a bit of a step back. Hard to explain, although I’m sure most of you who are writers understand.
