It’s been a week now that I’ve finally started to feel like we are all getting on a routine. While I have a few things this week to tidy up for the end of the year, we are falling into a way of life that works for me. All that means is that I’m starting to find the natural flow of routines in my life and I’m able to work with them now, which means I’m back to writing. While not as much as I once did, I am still moving forward and that works for me.
Life with my daughters and grandsons here is smoothing out. I have two beautiful headstrong girls and they are still trying to figure out how to cohabitate the apartment together once more, but I’m sure they will get there. My eighteen-month-old grandson keeps me on my toes, but nothing makes me happier than him screaming Nana through the house and giving me his squishy face kisses he does so much.
The hubby man and I have vowed to go out on a date once a month. I really do hope that we hold true to that and make it happen. Often times we say we will do things like this and they get pushed off to the side because other things have to come first. It would be nice to have one on one time together, given that our house is busy enough now that we don’t get that quality time any longer.
As for my writing, it has been a slow process to come back to and feels awkward often. I’m sure the more that I do this, the more that it will happen for me. Most of my writing is done on paper now as there is now outlet or ability to run an extension cord for my tiny laptop, which is where I prefer to do my writing as it has fewer distractions on it. I can’t wait until I can share more with you on the journey other than the struggle, but like all artistry, it can be such a rollercoaster at times.
Until then, though, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
