Writing my life away

I love to write. I wrote as a little girl and found it again after having three kids. This will be a way for me to 'keep up' with getting published. Since I'm not published, I hope this will keep me on target and not stray.

Leaving 2005

Wow I can't believe another year has passed. Of course when you think of it every day that passes is another year passed the last time you were on that day.

Wow! How wordy was that?!

So anyway I'm looking at the numbers for next year -- 2006.
Doesnt' that just look funny? And just think we'll all spend the better part of six months trying to remember to write the six instead of the five on checks!! Ah the joys of a new year! LOL

hehee ok so tomorrow (err... that would be today! I just noticed the time.) I'm going to add up all the score sheets to the Diva Best Opening Scene and find out our winner! That's always exciting!

I wish all the entrants the best of luck and I know they have skill! Hopefully we'll have more requests out of the contest (we're getting really good for that!! YAY that's super exciting! But as Forrest Gump says, "That's all I'm going to say about that." :D
Why? because I can't tell you all I'm writing up for the BOS contest here! You'll have to go to the Romance Diva blog for that! Well it' s 7am and I've not been to bed yet!! So off I go! Wish me some sleep!

Happy New Year everyone!! May your writing become published with large royality checks quickly attached!!

I call it off!!!

It's 10:19pm est here on Christmas day and I officially call it off!!
So how did you far this Christmas?
I've run the usual of sticking my foot in my mouth, getting upset at something done or said by aunt so-and-so,
annoying other family members, giving sucky gifts, receiving some pretty good gifts for a change, and getting embarrassed at other's rude behavior. hmm does that cover it all?

Ahh well Merry Christmas!!!

Used Tea Bags

I'm afraid that's what I feel like today. Convientent since my son busted a bag I'd left out for a minute before throwing away. Made a mess of course. Which he's done all day. One mess after another. I'm so not a happy camper today.
I'm sad, depressed and been close to tears all day. I have a monster tooth ache. I've not been to a dentist in years. They terrify me. Completely. I dread going, but I will eventually have to give in and go. Much to my chargin.

I'm not ready for Christmas . I never am anymore. I thought the years would be easier since my dad's passing, but really they just get worse. I used to be so tough. I could handle anything. I could take on the world and always be on top. Not today. Today I'm a pathetic bleeding heart. My heart bleeds for all the things I could have been and I'm not. I bleed for all the happiness I used to feel and don't. Where is my armor? Where is my strong will and independent ways that saw me through my hard times? I'm getting old and soft. I've lost my edge.

Gee it's only my birthday. How will I get through Christmas and mostly January? I dread January more than words can say.

Happy Birthday to me.

edited to add:
It's no wonder I love to write. I seem to be able to purge my sorrow in writing and move on to more enjoyable things. I already feel better just getting all that written and out of my system. Which leaves me seriously considering deleting the whole post, but I figure somehow I'll cheat someone or myself if I do. I haven't a clue. So indeceiciveness (sp?) leaves it up -- at least for now. :P

It's Cold!!

It's finally cold in the south!!
A few very very sparse round pebbles of snow (not the fluffy flaky kind), not even long enough to hit the ground.
White Christmas-es are hard to come by in the south. I remember when we had real White Christmas-es. My kids don't even remember the snows we had the last couple of years (of course the oldest is only 7 :D )

We were supposed to go to a Christmas Party last night and one today, but we're not at either. Hubby had a call from a friend and helped him yesterday. He made it back home in plenty of time for the party, but he must have caught a flu bug. He was sick all night long. I'm talking sick. He is normally a pretty healthy person, and even when he gets colds he keeps on a going, but today and last night we're talking so sick what time he wasn't hugging the throne, he was completely asleep from exhaustion. I hope he gets better soon. :(

Normally he feeds our dogs :) but since he is sick I'm going out to feed them (I always work harder at it lol) but it's so cold!!! Ick the only time I don't want to feed the dogs is when it's this cold! BRRRRRRR! I'll have to wash water bowls and food bowls and freeze my @ss off! LOL So off I go!
