So I'm sitting on my writing couch, and I hear from the TV. "And Stunned by surprise."
My hubby just happened to be watching the tale end of "Hells Kitchen.". Really? Can you be stunned by surprise? Just a thought.

Guitar Hero.

So in the midst of me trying to finish my paranormal. My husband has introduced guitar hero into the house. Not just regular Guitar hero , Metallica.
Now to be fair he's been playing the other over at my neighbors house since Geno (that's my neighbor) got it.
So in order to get some peace because he's been bugging me to try it. I picked up the guitar. that and to prove to my very gun shy nine year old that trying new things is a good for you.
Which mean what? My eyes get all scrambled trying to follow the notes and I now have a need to conquer the damned thing. My husband once said i wasn't competitive enough. This because i refused to play spoons with him and his family. I'm sorry but when you see some of the claws that come out with the aggression a smart woman keeps her hands out of that pile.
I'm competitive I just choose when to be. Ok so I'm rambling but hey, my ie year old tired something new.

Well Hell!

It's been a busy couple of Months. I've :

1) Judged for two contest, still judging for the third.

2)been busy raising my kids.

3)been busy raising my DH (just kidding).

4) Went down south to deal with a family emergency. [British relative had to be Medivaced into Miami from the caribbean. They ended up spending two weeks getting my uncle in shape to make the ten hour flight back home to London. I spent a few days just making sure they could get around.]

5) Finally kicked it in gear with the writing . I'm almost done.

6) Finally decided that yes I will be going back for my masters. That also means I have to do the dreaded GRE.

7) By the way 5 and 6 mean that I've been looking at my life plan. Yes I'm a writer, Yes I will be published [at some point] so I must look at my life and organize it accordingly.

It's been busy and crazy but I'm working on balancing my life. I say that as I watch all the balls I juggle, hoping that none of them drop.

Happy Easter!

I know I've been absent but my excuses are going to have to wait for another day. Part of it is I'm being more disciplined in my writing. Anywho!

My kids are very happy to see that the Easter bunny has visited and left a basket of candy. Though the next part is getting them ready for church. But I think I can bribe them with the hunt for Easter eggs at grandma's house.
Happy Easter Everybody! Chocolate eggs for every one.
