Journey to the Center of My Insanity

I know I promised a post on Tuesday, but life kinda got in the way. There is a good amount of my personal life that I do not share on this blog. But it goes without saying that it is CRAZY!!!

Still, here, although I may have lost my sanity somewhere in the last two weeks (or years ago, hard to pin point the actual moment) we stay positive!

So I thought I would share with you the HAPPY parts of my insanity!

  1. 1. Wine - I like wine. And lately I have plenty of excuses to drink it. I like excuses to drink wine.

  2. 2. Ice cream - I really like ice cream. During the week, when I'm avoiding the wine, I have numerous excuses to eat ice cream. This is working well for me, not so much for my mid section.

  3. 3. I've gone floofy, yet I'm still able to keep my house clean, critique and stress about my impending doom of a manuscript. That makes me a super hero....or something like that!

  4. 4. I've been able to start most of my summer vacationness a week and a half early. YAY for no more inconvenient trips to school. *does the happy dance*

  5. 5. Now that I have less trips to school I can focus more on my MASSIVE rewrite. *grabs a bowl of ice cream*

So not everything that lacks the sparkly luster is necessarily bad.

Example:


Hi! My name is Sexy McHotPirate. I don't sparkle...
But I do look good with a sword!

Needless to say, happy is in the eye of the beholder. Just a reminder that even when life, your manuscript, or your dinner sucks, there is always something good to be found!

(What? If your dinner sucks you can count it as a small step towards the diet...and/or another reason to eat ice cream!)

I'm ALWAYS up for another reason to eat ice cream.

In that case bring on the ice cream - lots of it! And wine - lots of it! I think I'm with you on the "gone floofy" train. :-)

My doc just told me to eat more calcium...ice cream here I come. I've been eating it a ton too during my massive rewrite.

Did you blog today? I got distracted by the lovely photograph on this website. *drool*

PS: my word verification today is "caketi" which to me sounds like "cake-etti" which is like "funfetti" which makes me want a cupcake!

Woo-hoo for ice cream with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and whip cream! Yum!

Glad you're back blogging, at least for a day.

I'm actually enjoying having a little less craziness in my schedule now that I'm done with my book. There's just something that drives me while I'm writing it and pushes me until I'm done. My poor family! Tonight I finally pulled out the right size shoes for my six year old. He'd out grown his others and was wearing flip flops all the time! But now he has his mommy back to the real world and he gets shoes that fit! :-)
