Wednesday Randomness: January 2018 Brain Dump

This is likely to be all over the place. Lots going on. It was a snow day today, so my quiet day of working and writing quickly disappeared.

I’m still desperately trying to find the balance in life. Some days, I think I’m getting closer, but other days… Like now, mostly what I’m thinking about is how behind I am on pretty much everything.

The hubby is traveling again, so I’m taking another trip on the single parent train. It’s not too bad, though, with 2 of the kids driving – drastically cuts back on my running around. And the oldest just got his own car, so that helps even more. But it’s still not easy when he’s gone…not just because of day-to-day logistics…

BUT…after he gets home, I’m running away. I’m going to be in Michigan for a bit – which includes invading Bronwyn’s house, likely driving her family nuts, and getting to see some of my other fave people, including some of the other Wed bloggers. I can’t wait. I need the break away from everyday craziness, the chance to see friends I don’t get to see often enough, and the time to just write without other things pulling at me.

I’m having conflicting feelings about the fact my oldest is turning 21 in a week. He’s a great guy, and I’m so proud of him, and I feel like I’ve done something good and right in this world when I see the man he’s becoming, but omg, my baby is turning 21 – how is that even possible?

So, yeah, that’s what’s been on my mind. I need to play catch-up tomorrow, so I’m going to sign off and get my ass to bed. 🙂

Wednesday Randomness: Brain Dump

Well, a lot’s on my mind, right now. Forgive me if this post is a bit…all over the place. It will be truly representative of my brain. LOL

Life is a bit crazy – the hubby is overseas for work (again), but HAPPY HAPPY, he’ll be home tomorrow, a day earlier than expected. And yeah, that day is a BIG deal.

We are heading to a family reunion over the coming week. I’m very much looking forward to that – seeing family I don’t get to see very often and having some down time with the hubby and kiddos.

My youngest daughter is preparing for a trip overseas. Very exciting, but a bit nerve-wracking getting everything ready and making sure she has what she needs. But I’m excited for her and know she’ll have a wonderful adventure and I can’t wait to hear all about it.

After the reunion, I’m getting a bit of a break, as well. A working break, as I’ll be writing, but a break all the same. One of my besties (and fellow Wed blogger) Bronwyn is picking me up from the reunion, and I’m invading her house for a little over a week. And while I’m there, towards the end of my visit, we’ll be attending Rust City Book Con. It’s going to be an amazingly fun time – and I get to hang with Bron and Jenny Trout – no way a good time will not be had. 🙂

Finding the balance of writing and…well, everything else is still an ongoing battle. I’m trying not to get all up in my head about it, because that never leds to anything productive. I need to focus on making time to write. Luckily, I will get that when I’m at Bron’s house. Whenever I visit, I end up getting a ton written, so I’m fully expecting it to be the same this time.

There are other, not so great, things rambling through this mind of mine, but those are things I’m not giving voice to – because they don’t deserve it. LOL Honestly, those things can just…

Because I’m focusing on the positive…at doing my damnedest to. 🙂
