Sometimes having the ability to change your plans is an incredible advantage. This weekend definitely shows that. This weekend we were going to celebrate my youngest daughter’s birthday by going out to dinner and such. Thanks to the alternator crapping out on our car the plans have changed. We are now ordering in pizza and doing movies at home.
The fact that my little family here has always been one to flow with the punches, adapt and make these times even more entertaining then they would have been, is something I’ve always admired in our dynamic. We’ve taken power outages and turned them into candlelit game nights and many more things.
So, now that time has us down a bit on our luck we will rise and turn this weekend into yet another amazing adventure for us.
I need to get dishes done up and hardboil eggs as well to decorate for Easter. Even though, my daughter will be fifteen there is still fun to be had in doing some of the normal things. While we had expected for my grandson to come around as well to decorate we were let down yet again with that situation.
That is okay, we are okay with spending Easter time just the three of us. 🙂
As for my writing, I’ve really let go of a lot of stress that I’ve had on myself. I find that I have a tendency to put a lot of pressure on myself before a first draft is ever written in my books. I let self-doubt take over and I run myself into the ground. Finally, I’m learning to let all that go and just write for the sheer pleasure of writing. It’s been awhile since I sat down to write because I love to write and that is the wrong way to approach doing this. Now, it is time to get back to that. I can’t wait to see where this leads me.
Until then, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing and have a happy easter to all that celebrate it.
