Jeepers it has been awhile since my last entry. Prob cause I have had a baby on my boob for 2 months – almost three, and it has been a wee bit difficult to type! Anyhoo, I’m back and I have a new years resolution to write more and better stuff in this little diary of my shit show life :) Things are crazy but as the new year has come and gone and I didn’t really get to celebrate seeing as my son power barfed on my neighbors floor around 7pm, and then on me around 8pm, I was sadly in bed at 10pm and missed the whole cross over to 2012.
But now that I’ve had time to think about it, I really want 2012 to be exciting and fresh…so that means time to get obsessed about something!
I’m not sure how many of you know but I did do a little bucket list item last year and that was write my first book. No knowledge of how to do it, but with a fun idea in mind and a lot of late nights I managed to eek out 85,000 words…yikes! Don’t get too excited, it wasn’t like I wrote some profound novella on the time space continuum, but instead a supernatural teen drama that everyone knows I love to read about…stop laughing…:)
No, I’m not going to get it published, but it was something I’ve always wanted to do and it feels really good to complete something that seemed quite daunting. In actuality I think I thrive on daunting sometimes. It can take me awhile to get up and going (due to my terrible procrastination) but once I get into something I become obsessed and I think obsessed can sometimes be a good thing. It can give you a reason to get up in the morning, and also to make you feel like you are still a cool person, relatively speaking, and have a life outside of your kids.
So my first task is to edit the book and take a writing class and really just keep going. I love doing it, so even if I’m bad at it – why not do it anyways and have something that I do just for me :) Oh and I’m also going to lose 10 pounds, but isn’t that what we ALL say.
I have no picture for this entry so instead, here is the dog bed I just bought (and spent 200 bucks on) only to have my dog be afraid of…seriously what is wrong with him…
