I did it. I hired a professional nanny to sit my kids while I organize the house. She doesn’t nanny for me, but we are working on it. My point this blog is that I needed just an hour and a half of someone else entertaining the kids while I switched out laundry, cleaned the kitchen, took care of preschool paperwork (including all the copies of tax forms, shot records, birth certificate, my second born) and filing papers that have sat in a pile in the office for months. I got so much done. I have her for the next two Thursdays and Fridays and I’m excited at what I will get done. If not writing, then maybe cleaning up more of the office or guest room.
I would love to get this stuff done this summer. I hate going into the rooms and finding chaos. Keeping the doors closed (have to anyways for the kids) has helped my stress level, after all out of sight out of mind. But I would love to have workable spaces in my new house. 😞
With the husband home this weekend after a long as work week for him, I hope he can find ways to work and play with the kids. We got a new “roller coaster” toy for them for the back porch. It needs setting up and I think he and the kids can manage that perfectly together during the baby’s morning nap. I already took care of a ton of laundry yesterday but still have two more loads. It seems like it’s never ending, it probably IS never ending. But that’s ok. The times I get to write are a blessing and I love it. Sitting here with my son beside me sharing his excitement over a Minecraft zombie show on YouTube is a nice start to the weekend. He gets so animated. And has no filter. 🤣
I know this doesn’t seem like a writing blog entry but that’s okay. It’s been a less than exciting time in the writing department of life recently. Not in a bad way, just nothing new. The “short” is working out great. It’s going to be, or close to it, a feature now and I’m loving the story. My book is still with the editor, it takes time to read multiple books at a time. The third book in my series is still on back burner until I finish this script. I don’t want to write something that my heart and brain aren’t into right now. It will be, don’t get me wrong. it’s just right now I’m more excited about the script. I want to write the book when I’m excited about it. I hope that makes sense. If my heart isn’t into it, I’m afraid it won’t be good. Now if it’s a script, that is so much easier. The less descriptive writing, where my heart usually cares, the better. 😂 I’ve entered my real short script into a few competitions and am waiting to hear back
about those. I’m sure I’m optimistic but I can’t help it. I really love the story.
One thing that’s been happening lately are some super duper cool people on social media have been following me. I don’t want to share because that seems tacky to me, but I’m honored and I’m trying to keep it cool. Like I would stutter if ever I met these people in a real life setting. 🙃
Whoa this YouTube Minecraft movie is 😮
Well, my baby is awake, time to be a parent for real. Have a great Saturday everyone!
