Not So Early Blog
I do most of my writing early in the morning, as that is the only time I really have to myself. I remember reading that Mary Higgins Clark used to do that when her kids were little, 5-7 every morning, she says. Then it's time to be Mom all day with little stolen moments to rush in and write. I'm up a little bit late today, but that's okay, I'll deal.
I actually wrote for about an hour last night after supper and put down some amazing things. You know the kind, you're beaming while you write, almost giddy with excitement and happiness? I wish I hadn't of had to step away, but Julia needed me to do some things and then there was laundry and dishes. I would have said screw it to the housework, but since Julia had me out of the office chair anyway, I went ahead and dove into all that miserable stuff. Actually, I like doing laundry and dishes because they give me time to think. But yeah, thinking and actually typing words into a document are two different things.
Enough about writing. How is everyone enjoying their summer so far? We're past the solstice and so that means we should enjoy every day we get from here on out, because they're all slowly sliding into Autumn. In just a few weeks I'll be registering the kids in school! The thought makes me excited and sick. I hate it when the house is empty, and Liam has never left me, not for more than a few hours. What will I do without my little buddy every morning? Okay, I'm not going to think about it. Here comes my usual fall melancholy. I'll just fight it off with some Tina Tuner and a walk in the park.
Take care and Peace!
