After These Messages

We'll be right back! Remember that old jingle from Saturday morning cartoon watching? Well, that's about how my brain is functioning these days. I have made headway on my WiP, but no killer word counts this week and more editing. Not a bad thing at all since real life keeps swooping in to remind me of all the things I need to get done in the next five weeks. Technically less than that since the minute my parents land in the DC area, we'll be doing more touring and playing than anything else. (Yes, I can't wait!) Less than a month!

At the moment, I'm spending more time wading through the piles of stuff that have collected like cobwebs in the corners of every room. I swear my house is the receiving end of a black hole. Where did all this stuff come from? Oh yes, I have children. Now I remember... Anyway, Between now and, well, hmm... August? September? You never know... Until "then", my life is going to be crazy. Fun, but crazy! So if you don't hear from me, it's because I got sucked into the black hole as well, or at least sucked into the boxes that are calling my name. Hmm... Maybe sirens would have been a better analogy.


  1. My house also sometimes seems to be on the receiving end of a black hole, and I can't even blame the kid - especially since the worst of it is on the computer desk, stuff just accumulates there when I'm not looking.

    Anyway, sounds like you have a lot of fun stuff going on, but hope you find some time to do some writing as well!

  2. I can completely relate. I am SO GLAD the kids are a little older. I don't think I could write as much as I do if they weren't so darn self-sufficiate. Of course, the housework - that is a diffirent story. Suffice it to say, I have gotten used to a less-than-perfect home :D

  3. Stuff is so devious, downright sneaky! I guess I need to get mischievous myself and pull out some trash bags. *insert evil laugh here* And don't worry. I'll find time to write! ;)

    Christine, thank heaven for nap time! I wouldn't be able to write at all without it! I love this age though. They make me laugh every day! Is there such thing as a perfect home? I'd like to see it. I need proof!

  4. I understand your pain. I'm one of the worst packrats, but hey, it runs in the family. ;-) Luck on your writing and editing.

  5. lol! I had no idea packing was tied to genetics. :D Thanks for the luck! It's always welcome as long as it's good. ;)
