Labor Day. Enjoying my “day off”.

I can not remember a time when I got out of bed later than 9:30am. Refreshing?  Possibly. I mean, I had to get up and let the dog out so he didn’t pee on my floor. (He does that.) But then I went back to bed (5:30am) because it was just too darn early to be up! We had a cook out yesterday with lots of people. Cooking. Eating. Talking. Laughing. It was good, but tiring. Most everything was also cleaned up before I went to bed so there was little to do this morning. I drank coffee and had a piece of cake. I also color-coordinated my calendar with soccer games and gymnastics meets. I’m all ready for the busy fall season.

Today is a “free day” so I plan to write. (Names needs to be completed!!) I also have homework for my English class due Wednesday.

For the last couple years I have not been a fan of kids going back to school before Labor Day. WAY TO EARLY if you ask me. But, now that I am in school too, and the school for them is getting harder, I think it is a good idea. This way they can ease into it. After this first week, we were ALL exhausted! And then with a birthday party yesterday (not for me), we NEEDED today off! It is 10:30 and we are all up now, but the house was very quiet for a long time. Normal Monday mornings are hectic. Kids up, all trying to get ready to catch the bus or whatever. Me running out the door at 8:45am now that I am a college student. (haha) We are scheduled into a busy season of life.

As I said in the last blog, I used to complain about it, but realized that this is what lots of people do. At least in this area. Maryland, as well as the DC Metro Area, is a very busy place. Not laid back much at all. Maybe in Texas, but not here. So if I choose to live here, this is the life I lead. Crazy busy. So I need to deal.

I think this year I have come to terms with that and I see the need to be organized and scheduled for the first time ever. I was never good at schedules before. I’m a wing-it kind of gal. Not now. Necessity has produced change. I can relax and blow off time when I am caught up on the necessary things. What are they? Laundry, cooking, homework, driving to scheduled events, and yes, the most important, WRITING!!!! I am trying to write everyday possible. I’ve written something at least 4 days a week for the last month. I’d like to see that increase to 5-6 days a week. Word count? IDK. I shoot for 1500-2000 words a day, but sometimes that is hard to attain. But I am confident it will happen.

I am also determined to get my “hoarding” under control and clean out my house!!! HUGE GOAL there!

News flash! Besides The Cost of Loving sitting at #11 on the Dreamspinner Best Seller List, I noticed all my books are on sale over there. So GO GREEN, and buy an eBook today!

  1. Call a TV show to clean out your house. All you need to do is open yourself up to massive public humiliation!

    1. first thought is, "Um, no." haha. I'm not that bad, really. I just need to schedule in time to to it. One thing at a time needs to be pitched. I have a plan.
