it’s been a few days since I made an entry and I think that’s mostly due to me just taking it easy. I’ve been writing when I can but instead of taking 15-20 min to do a blog entry I’ve been using the time to write. It’s been so crazy here at home. Sick kids, husband gone. Chores and other various things to be done at home and less sleep than usual. I am literally pumping while I type this, that’s how I have to manage my time. Sorry if that’s TMI, this is my blog so I’m not going to worry. 😂
Ive been hiring a lot of people to do work for us around the house this last month. I’ve always been a “save money where we can” type of person and hiring someone to clean my house, carpets, pest control and lawn care just seemed too much, but I sat myself down and figured my husband isn’t able to enjoy his time with the kids if he has all these chores to do on the two days he’s off from work. I can’t do them AND write and I’ve writing is important. And my husband wants me to hire these services out, so decision made. We now have a landscaper, pest control company and, soon, a maid and someone to clean the carpets. Damned dog has done a number on them. She hated the cold weather and used the carpets for
ger business. She’s lucky she’s cute.
It was a hard decision, trust me. I don’t like not doing stuff myself but with all the travel, work and the kids, it makes sense. I’m working on securing travel
plans for the festival in Austin and our family vacation in the same month.
the “short” script I’m working on turned into something much longer and unexpectedly so. I added something to the story and that changed the length significantly. I don’t know if it will be feature length but it’s definitely not your typical “short film” script. I am going to write it out, finish the story and see where it lands. There’s room to add stuff later if I have to. For instance if it’s just shy of a feature length, I might as well make it into one.
Thats all ive been working on during nap times, so I hope it will be done soon. Last night was the first night in a few weeks that all of my kids slept through the night. It was a glorious night of restful sleep. I hope to get a lot of writing done today. Yesterday I had to nap during the first morning nap. That sucks. I always feel cheated when I have to sleep and not write. But the night before was awful. 😞
So off I go now, to get two kids on the bus and get myself ready for the day. Hope you all have a good one!
