Sorry for my personalized blogging absence!!!
I decided it was time to get back in the groove, so to jump-start my bum I'm going to share what's been happening in my life the last 2 months - the reasons (excuses) for my missing in action.
#1 Kindergarten and preschool started for my two daughters. TEARS!
#2 Got rear ended on the way to the hospital for a prenatal monitoring. Go figure.
#3 Baby #3 arrived - my big-boy son, Luke. More tears, but this time not mine.
#4 My almost 4-yr-old daughter, Emily, decided to fall off the swing set ladder and break both bones in her right forearm only TEN days after Luke was born. NOT pretty.
#5 Three weeks later, Emily's left hand didn't get off the front door jam fast enough. REALLY not pretty. Reattaching the tip of her finger required a bit of surgery.
I'll premise the next two with this:
We live in a construction zone, fixer-upper.
#6 Drywall was finally hung on the entire first floor. Talk about a dusty mess!! Fine, powdery film all over every inch of the house - 2nd floor included. More tears for mommy, the maid.
#7 Plasterers came in the following two days to put a nice skim coat over the drywall - and splatter wet mud ALL over. Mommy the maid knew the mess was on its way, but seriously. M.E.S.S.
Oh. Forgot to mention that NO furniture - NOTHING - could be in our living space for #6 and #7. My living room furniture and kitchen cabinets became lawn ornaments for three days. Yippee!
And finally ...
#8 My debut novel, Eye of the Soul, released during this time along with its 4 week blog tour.
Yeah. This was me every morning for the past 2 months ...
But all is better now.
I'm just thankful to be here ... and alive.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Day?
