A Window Into My Boring Life

So, I’ve been MIA for a while on my blog. I know. I suck at this. I should be more present and post more updates. But life gets in the way. You know? What’s that? You don’t know? Alrighty then. Moving on.

Times are hard, folks. You don’t need me to tell you that. But in my family, it was determined after Christmas that one income was no longer feasible for us. So, after 13 lovely years of being a stay-at-home mom, I decided to return to work full-time. I didn’t think I would get any bites by sending my CV. But lo and behold, I did! I went to some interviews and got hired! Hooray! Yay, me, right?

Working is a necessity. With three kids to feed and two in private schools, we were biting off more than we could chew. I would much rather write and be with my kids, but that is a luxury we can no longer afford.

Why are my kids in private school, you might ask. That’s a long story that I might tell one day. But today is not that day.

So, off to work, I go, but luckily, I don’t have to go far. I work from home. The pay is decent, the work challenging, and the newness of it all flickered what little embers of an ambitious career were left in me before I laid eyes on my firstborn child. Yes, folks, children do change you. They change you as a person, your life, your dreams, and most importantly, your perspective.

Not that anyone cares, but how has this affected my writing? Greatly! I have so little time to write now, and it’s a bummer because I have so many ideas for articles popping into my head; all I can do is write them down in a little notebook. I can’t waste what precious time I have writing articles. I’m concentrating on my second book and want to finish it before the year ends. That’s my resolution for this year. To complete and submit my second book for publication.

I don’t know when I’ll update this blog again. Hopefully, soon, but who the hell knows? In the meantime, I invite you to check out my first book, Dark Was the Night. Sold almost everywhere. Batteries are not included. Because you don’t need any. Hihi.
