Hello everyone. I do apologize for not posting in a minute because of things getting back to normal around here. I am doing okay today just had to deal with some anxiety today because of a procedure. I had a temporary pacemaker put in for my bladder to help with an incontinence issue. The doctor said that I have a very nervous bladder, lol.

I had the procedure done and I am not supposed to do anything but take it easy for the next couple of days. I am sore in my lower back and it feels like a probe pushed up my rectum but it is easing up. I go back on Thursday to give my test results and then I will be scheduled for a permanent implantation of a pacemaker. At least this time, my hospital stay will be putting something in instead of taking something out of me, lol.

Everything is good here, so I guess it is just writing and editing for me the next couple of days and no housework. I am not supposed to bend, lift, or twist which they call a BLT. It was painful when they put the needles in my lower back to numb the area and now I am just sore.

My next book, "Immortal Passion" will be published tomorrow evening and I hope everyone gets a copy. It is the first book in a series about vampires. I have enjoyed writing it because I would love to be the main female character. You should really read it and give me some feedback. If you get a copy, feel free to leave me a review with your thoughts.

I will probably have the next book ready for publishing next week because as you know I have been working on several books at once. I have nothing better to do than write and get my stories out to the world. I find it very relaxing and enjoyable when I drift off into one of my stories.

Well, it is time to lay down and watch some television with my husband and try to get used to this pacemaker and I also have another doctor's appointment in the morning for my mental illness medications. I wish everyone a wonderful evening and "Happy Birthday" to all those who turned another year older today. Take care.

Hello everyone. Today is not a good day and I feel like shit. I wanted to post to let everyone know that because of my mental health illness that I am putting things away and I don't know if I will pick them back up ever. I am canceling almost all of my doctor's appointments except the urologist because I am due to get a pacemaker in about a week from now.

The only reason for that is because I am tired of peeing the bed and all over myself. It is affecting me mentally which does not help the situation. I am tired of going through things and now that I think about it, it makes sense why I stayed homeless for so long because I had nothing for anyone to take away.

I don't know at this point what to do and all I can do is sit here and cry because I am worn down and my mind is going everywhere. If I am here tomorrow posting, it will be considered a miracle. So for now, I just have to play it by ear what will happen next. Take care everyone.

Hello everyone. It is five forty-two in the evening here in Dalton, Georgia and fifty-three degrees outside which brings a beautiful day to a close. I, first, want to ask for prayers for the Dailey Family who lost their father early this morning. I was with him all day yesterday and up until his passing this morning. He was a man who lived a full life and passed at the age of seventy-two to go be with his wife who passed away three years ago yesterday. Please forward your thoughts and prayers their way. It has been a blessing to know this man and his family and he will always be in my thoughts and prayers as he journey's to be with the Lord.

After his passing this morning, I was able to go to bed and get some sleep since I had been up with him for twenty-four hours. Now, after a time of remembrance, I can begin a new day with achieving my goals and aspirations. He has been an inspiration to me even though we shared some disagreements, but I still had a love for him in my heart.

Tomorrow is a new day, and with it comes new hopes and dreams for a better future. I plan on getting back on schedule with everything in the morning and you will be seeing my writing pop up everywhere and I have plans to make a podcast and a Youtube video every week reading some of my works and giving updates on what is going on with me so that my readers can put a face with a name.

I want people to know that I am a real person with real problems but love to share my stories with the world. I also have a nonprofit assisting the homeless to become self-sufficient that I will be doing some stuff for and creating a new program to help out more. Everything has been a cluster f*** lately and my world has been tossed upside down with health issues and conditions, but I am slowly getting things back on track so that my family can move forward.

Right now, my husband is taking a nap and the dogs are snuggled with him while I sit here writing this post. The only light on is my desk lamp which makes it calmer for me to concentrate on things and my writing. I have fallen behind by a couple of weeks on my writing and will be playing some major catch up in the next few weeks to keep things moving forward.

Our finances are straightened out for right now and I am working to keep them that way. Somehow, I got thrown off with bills this month and thought that I would have some money to publish my next book, but again, bills took precedence and I cannot afford it right now. We are not even going to be able to afford Christmas this year again.

I almost want to just give up on the holidays because we have not had a Christmas in a couple of years, but come hell or high water my babies will get some things this year. I have not been able to buy any new clothes in a couple of years and anything different that I get to wear is a hand me down from someone else. Last month, I was able to buy us a package of socks each.

Times have been hard and I try to stay optimistic and positive, just like I have been trying to get books sold just to add to our income with no luck because I don't have money for marketing expenses and push out free advertising where I can. I hope that this new year will be different. I have tried posting on some crowdfunding sites which never gives me any return even after offering any funders a copy of the book published.

Well, enough venting for now. I wish everyone a happy and blessed week and evening. "Happy Birthday" to all those celebrating one today and may you have many more to come. Take care.

"Happy First Day of December Everyone!" What a wonderfully mild day here in Dalton, Georgia with it lightly raining outside. I just got finished with the house chores and the reason I am running late today is that we were up until about one o'clock this morning checking on my roommate's dad because he had been asleep most of the day and his blood pressure was running dangerously low so we kept monitoring it.

I got up at my regular time and went to check on him and his blood pressure was back up a little bit, but I was tired so I laid back down and slept for a few hours more. I got up and checked it about nine this morning and he was back up safe enough to give him his medication and we have been tending to him, a house full of kids and adults, and trying to get the cleaning done. I am still doing laundry and should hopefully have it all done by tomorrow.

Later today we will be putting him in his lift while we change his bed sheets before dinner, but he is being well taken care of. Now, I can sit and get some of my stuff done while his daughter and son are in there, but I will still have to go check on him and administer his pain medication as long as his blood pressure is safe enough.

I will be getting an article written and a short story for a "freebie book" to give out, but I am swamped with book writing also. Well, I need to get started before it gets too late. I hope everyone has a blessed Saturday and "Happy Birthday" to all of you with a birthday today. May you all be blessed. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is eight thirty-nine here in Dalton, Georgia and fifty degrees outside. How are you readers doing today? I am feeling pretty good today and looking forward to the day. I can now get back on my routine and schedule now that my roommates' dad is home now with Hospice care which will be a great help to me.

I have to take my husband to the doctor this morning for his back procedure and then it is home to start the cleaning process before getting on my computer and beginning my writing schedule. I have a lot of things to do today and the fact that I am on here a little late is okay too.

While I am waiting at the doctor's office for my husband, I will be taking my computer so that I can work on some of my books. He usually takes about an hour so that will give me about sixteen hundred words towards my book word count.

I have several manuscripts started and just need to get them done so they can go to the editor for final proofing before publishing. Two of them are over twenty thousand words. I can't wait. Well, I need to make this a quick getaway because I have things to do and a lot of them.

I wish everyone a sweet day and happy Friday. "Happy Birthday" to everyone with a birthday today. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is thirty-two degrees here in Dalton, Georgia and gloomy looking outside. Brrr! We are all awake in the house and our roommate has company over already this morning. My husband and I are having our first cup of coffee and trying to wake up. There are no plans today of going anywhere which is good because then I can concentrate on my writing.

I have spent a few minutes with each of my dogs so that they can get their loving time this morning. I make it a point every morning to make sure they get some attention one on one with me. Now everyone is loved on and comfortable and laying around except my husband just got up and got dressed for the day.

My goals for the day are to get things cleaned up around here now that I have some help and then get to my writing. I have some writing goals that need to be met today and I have to get ready for my next book publishing which should be within the next couple of weeks. I will be sending my manuscript to the editor this weekend and hopefully, it is good enough for publishing.

Other than that, things look good for today and we just got word that his dad is coming home shortly. I have gotten his paperwork done for his care and I am now ready for everything. I should be finishing these other two books that I have been working on over the course of the next week and have them ready for the editor. Things look good on my end.

I will be getting our Christmas tree tomorrow and getting it decorated then back to writing my books. Well, I hope everyone has an awesome day the weekend is almost here. I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more. Take care.

Brrr! Good morning everyone. It is almost six o'clock in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia and also seventeen degrees outside, but I feel the same temperature here in my back room while typing this so you can imagine how winterized I am posting this. I kept my dogs in the bedroom where it is warm while I come to get some work done out here.

I feel wide awake this morning and should be snuggled up in bed with my husband and dogs but I have slacked off a few days because of holidays. This morning my husband has a back procedure so I need to be able to drive him home and then it will be right back to my routine and schedule. My roommates' dad comes home from the hospital tomorrow and that will be awesome because he missed Thanksgiving but we made a plate to take to him.

I have a nice hot cup of coffee here with me to keep me a little warmer on the inside so the cold is tolerable. This goes to show my passion and dedication for writing to be sitting in a room that is seventeen degrees cold. I will survive because my motivation keeps me warm.

After posting this for today, I will be working on an article for another site and then on to writing in my books. I look forward to finishing the ones I have started and I already have one ready for the editor to do the final editing and then it is off to publishing it. It is the first book in a series of four books and I think everyone will like them.

I am excited about publishing them and I make them easy reads without all those big words and fluff. I love telling stories just how they come out of my mind. I also live in the story while writing it. Which means I tell the story as I see it going on around me.

Well, it is time for me to get busy and get some other stuff done and I need a refill on my coffee. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and a blessed one. "Happy Birthday" to those whose birthday is today as well. Take care until tomorrow.
