Seriously, it has been a while. Moving to Lexington took a lot longer to settle than I initially believed.
Today is the first day that I am back to writing. It feels good. I am currently compiling my writing playlist. As the music plays the images run rampant through my mind. They unfold the story and I can see Andie react to her surroundings and other characters that she has a relationship with.
I’ll write more about that another time. I’m just glad to actually publish a blog piece considering that the last one I posted was forever ago. Luckily, I still have readers that follow my blog and follow my facebook page. Thank you for being so dang patient!
Lexington is beautiful! The air is clean, the grass is green and the people are so friendly. I love my new home and my neighborhood. We were very blessed for this opportunity to pop up in our life at the exact moment it was needed. It has been quite and adjustment. Staying home full-time is a lot more difficult than I remember. I was a stay-at-home mom years ago when my children were little. I assumed that since our children were older I would have more time on my hands to write full-time, boy was I mistaken. There are so many more things that I have to accomplish and get done throughout the day. But, I am making it work. There are still several projects that need to be completed around the house, however, I am going to put those on the back burner until I have my first draft completed. Most of my day is dedicated to writing this first draft.
It feels good and I can’t wait to share it with you!
This is short and sweet, but I wanted to take the time to let people know that I am still here and still alive and working!
Trying to get back into the swing of things is a lot harder to do than to say you are doing. I have had some personal changes in my life happen recently.
I married the love of my life on January 3rd. This included the integration and blending of our families. He has 4 children and I have 3 (only 1 at home). The house is rambunctious, fun, crazy, and it feels like home. It’s hard to explain but after being single since 2005 and not dating anyone because I wanted to concentrate on my children, I was taken by surprise when Scot entered my life.
The unfortunte incident is that I lost my oldest daughter during this transition. Not lost in the sense of death, but lost in the sense that I had to ask her to move out because she was disrupting life. I gave her 30 days to move and had to stick to it. I wouldn’t have, but she was posting nasty things about me on her tumblr page and it was just too hurtful to live with someone who didn’t appreiate the things that I was doing for her and her fiance’, and my grandson. What is more hurtful is that she is now using him against me. She is not letting me see him although I was there from the moment she found out she was pregnant through delivery and 6 months into his life. I can’t even think about it – it cuts too deep.
Other than that, I am back to writing again. Scot pushes me everyday. I now have a tablet with a bluetooth keyboard to help me during times at work there is a lull and my brain begins to fire off. I’m excited about my future and what is to come. I am happy that I have a family that loves me. I love them dearly. I love all of my children.
I have to just keep pushing along knowing that my Heavenly Father will guide and direct me and i have the love of my family to guide me.
