I'm working at a job that I have so much fun at. The kids have grown by leaps and bounds. They are all in school now. I'm a mother to a teenager! She drives me batty and amazes me. We are settled now, and most days I'm happy with that. I still miss the traveling but not as much as I used to. We have wonderful friends and a community around us.

Long Time No Post

I am a bad blogger, obviously. It isn't that there is no news to speak of, it's that life is too busy to take the time to write it down. I wonder if someday when I'm old I'll wish I had.

I have a new job. A frustrating, challenging, exciting job. At times I'm happy, and the day never drags. So I guess I can say it's a good thing.

I have been writing. Struggling through some of the same old things but also working on new things. I enjoy writing and hate editing. So it's an exercise for me to work on old things, they need the editing.

The Velvet Hills

The hills danced,
chasing one another
toward the river.

Hugging the curves
verdant dress
nature's haute couture.

Soft as velvet
warmed by the sun,
basking in the glory.

Leapfrogging the countryside,
a graceful ballet
in ripples of green tulle.

Author's proof

I got my author's proof for my short story "The Choice". I am so frickin' excited. It's another little bit of my soul out there for people to see but I think it shines. Will post when it's up.

I have been writing more. That is always good, I am at my happiest when I am writing.

I am getting ready for the Grand Opening of my new Etsy stores on May 1st. So excited for that. I have been sewing like crazy. But it's calming and soothing. It's like meditation for me.

I have been meditating though. It helps with my insomnia among other things. But getting to sleep is the best thing that I have noticed.

We got back report cards. Kenz is doing fantastic. He's reading at a third grade level in first grade.
Sapphire is a different story. She is failing handwriting. How does one fail handwriting? By not turning in any of the homework. I am pulling my hair out. And to think she's not even a teenager yet. Someone save me now.
