Home again, home again

Yesterday was one of those days. *shudder* Traveling with kids. *double shudder* Alone. *triple shudder* You can read the details in the comment section on Kiersten’s blog, but long story short, it was a nightmare of a long day.

Well, I am finally back. In my own home. In my good old basement. Heck, I’m even happy to see my big, fat desktop. 🙂

I am eager to get back to work. I didn’t get a thing done at my parent’s house. It took tremendous effort just to check the blogs. So, yeah, as much as I love them, it’s fabulous to be back in my own little groove. I have been chomping at the bit to start revising Midas. I have some good ideas, and unlike Tristan, it shouldn’t take forever and a day. Nope, I predict a solid three weeks of work ought to do it.

One minor problem, we have to be out of our house in one week. Yep. Not like I picked a bad time to go on vacation or anything. Oh well. *plants fists on waist* I laugh in the face of a challenge. I wrote a whole novel in the month I was trying to sell my house, didn’t I?

    Yes, you did! You are superwoman! You can edit, pack, move, take care of the kids, take care of the hubby, and hopefully take care of yourself, too, without breaking a sweat (or breaking down)!

    Yes, you are amazing! Glad you’re back home. I missed you.

    Thanks gals, I’ve missed you guys too. 🙂 It’s great to be back in my lovely routine.

    So typical of human nature: we whine and complain about the same old grind of everyday, and then, when it’s taken away from us, we miss it terribly and can’t wait to get back.

    I am amazed at your tenacity. I just need to sit down and start writing! As soon as these long shifts have come to an end I’m going to do it! I suspect I’ll stumble a bit, but if I keep at it I’m sure it will get better over time.

    Write now? I have a little bit lately, but not as much as I would like. There’s nothing like a few 20 hour shifts in a row and working through weekends to make the stuff that comes out of your head look like a big sloshy pile of muck….

    Keep up the good fight!

    Oh, by the way, I finally put your blog as a link on mine. I’ve been meaning to for ages…

    Brady, 20 hour shifts? Yikes, I don’t blame you for not getting much done.

    Hey, at least you write an entertaining blog. That counts. 🙂
