Halfway there

Good morning readers! So much is coming at once and my mind is all over the place!

My little man has a stomach bug and is doing a lot better, after throwing up a few times through the night. Being on Attendance Probation really had me down when Offspring looked at me and asked if I could stay home with him. After a little reassurance, he “allowed” me to go ahead and go to work. When I returned, he couldn’t wait to sit on my lap and just curl up. I don’t know about you but when he does that, it makes me feel like I’m doing something right as a parent.

So…the novella. I made my halfway mark! With the way it’s going, it may be finished by the first week of December. That’s just the first draft. I honestly have never done anything like this before and I’m shocked that I’m still staying on track with it. I have another one in mind but guessing with the amount of editing that is needed to the current one, it may turn into a novel. Wow…my first novel. It’s funny, at the beginning, I didn’t have anyone to support me. My ex, despite going through surgery is still taking the time to give me my much needed time to write. A coworker and close friend in Georgia are anticipating something unique. I also have someone interested on here (GNJ) too! It may not be a lot but I really value their encouragement.

Tomorrow is my favorite time of the year! I love Thanksgiving. It’s the only time where I can stuff my face with untold portions of food without a second thought. Being that my son has a stomach virus, I think I’ll try and keep it simple for him. I also want to make enough to head out around town and find my “5” people to give food to. Again, I couldn’t do it last year but I am finally able to do so now.

I still can’t believe that we are now almost to the end of the year. It’s amazing how far you can go and time doesn’t seem to be an issue. But when you do look at the time, you wonder where it went. This year is really special to me even though I had to compose myself to get back up after a really bad one last year. I hope that the same is for you, we don’t know each other but we share one thing and that’s life. I breathe and close my eyes the same way, so there’s no need to worry about egos or drama on my end.

This is turning out to be a very long entry, hahaha probably because I don’t really talk to anyone in my “Current Reality”. My first entry on here mentioned that I’d be safer with my own thoughts and I hold true to that statement.

Enough about me. Since the holidays are fast approaching, what are you hoping to get your loved ones or yourself? What about New Year’s Resolutions? A saying I came up with when I was in the military was, “Aim low, so you never miss”. I try and stick to “3” things I want to do throughout the year. I have to come up with some new ones and I hope that you, too, will have something achievable.

As always, have a great day my friend(s)

Jay
