I’ve been MIA for a while. But I’m back.
Been spending a lot of time getting the board back and running. It’s mostly going well now, just needs some tweaks here and there. Take a minute and join the conversation.
Other than that, been doing the same ol’ same ol’. Parenting, cleaning, teaching, rinse, and repeat.
One thing I haven’t had much time for, is writing. I’m stuck on Chapter 4 of my book. I haven’t written anything in over a week. NOTHING. This is not good. I just can’t seem to find the hours or the words. I always say, if you really want something you will make it happen. You’ll make time for it. So I must. I’m going back to my writing schedule this week.
Tuesday was our 2nd wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years. I can’t believe our daughter is 14 months! Yes, we got pregnant right after getting married. LOL. No time wasting. We had been together 5 years by the time we got married, so why wait longer? Plus, I’m getting old. 😛
Unfortunately, we didn’t do much, but he works away from home 11 days at a time for work, so just having him here was enough.
I’d write more, but my daughter has company, and they’ve been trying to kill a moth by throwing books at it for 20 minutes. =/ I need to go handle it. LOL
It’s been a few days since I’ve posted, so I’m checking in.
I have a couple posts saved in draft, but those are homeschool related and need more work. LOL
Today is my son’s 10th birthday. 10. He’s still a baby. He got a new basketball hoop and ball for the backyard. He’s excited to play with it. I’m a little nervous about how that will go. He’s the kind of kid that likes to win at everything. Basketball is one of those things his sister does better than him (for now). Let’s pray for a pout-free day. Tomorrow he has his favorite video game coming in the mail. Something he’s been asking for since LAST birthday. I’m excited for him.
Outside of that I’ve been working on my message board. It’s the same board I’ve had since 2001, but we totally wiped it (really just archived everything far away) and made everyone resign up. This isn’t something I would ever do again, but it felt good to get rid of all the old stories following us around there. Hoping that some new people join in our convos. The link is www.daboard.com. It’s a community for people 18+ and center’s around “urban” life, so it may not be for everyone.
I slept. But way too much. This is a bad habit I’ve gotten into. That staying up late thing.
Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day working on the board. There is still a lot I need to do, but right now my brain is fried.
My kids are addicted to the High School Musical Karaoke game on the Wii. Can’t say I blame them. It’s sort of fun. Shae is great at it. Shanon…not so much. But Shae is definitely a better singer. (lol) I have Scarface on the Wii, but haven’t managed to get a moment to play it. It’s rated MA, so have to make sure the kiddies are tucked away.
I have a busy day ahead. I have to do a lot of cleaning b/c I have two families meeting with me this week. I have 2 assignments due this week – one due tomorrow and I haven’t even started them. I have about 15 hours of work to get done for my dad by tomorrow morning. On top of the usual homeschooling and entertaining the kid I care for.
Right now…I’m simply going on fumes.
