     Hello Everyone. I am doing pretty good today. I had a doctor's appointment this morning to get things going to get my custom diabetic shoes and inserts. I will also be scheduling for a podiatrist and urologist for some other problems. Today I found out that my A1C has gone down quite a bit since February and that my liver and kidney functions are normal and working pretty good.
     My mental health status is doing okay. I go see my therapist on Monday and then the psychiatrist for medications on Wednesday. I still have issues with anxiety and sometimes my depression slips through but I have been trying to keep myself busy to try and not notice it.
     For the last few days, I have been working on my notebook that holds me accountable for my book writing. I finally finished it today and now I am ready to keep myself on track. My writing has been going good and pretty much on schedule. I am still looking for beta or proofreaders to assist with my book writing and publishing. Anyone want to help out just leave me a comment with your email address or email me at bpayne43@live.com. My next three books should be ready around the end of the first week of June.
     Well, I need to continue my schedule and move forward today. I wish everyone a blessed and prosperous day and look forward to posting again tomorrow. Take care.

     Good morning to every one of my friends and family. How are we doing this morning? "Happy Monday!" It is the first day of the work week for most everyone and it will be a prosperous one. It will be in the low nineties today and yesterday was tiring. My husband and I moved our mattress to clean under the bed which we do every week and then we shared mowing the backyard so that I can start my gardens for potatoes, watermelon, and jack o lanterns.
     I have a doctors appointment this morning to do the paperwork for custom diabetic shoes. This should be the last cast on my foot since my doctor appointment last week. The ulcer under my big toe is finally healing and I will be glad to be able to walk normally again. It has been a long time since the ulcer popped un in February.
     Well to give you a writing update, I am finishing chapter six and beginning seven in one book, but the first chapter will be finished on the other book. I have some erotic short stories to write for a compilation book. I am also sending off permission letters for another nonfiction book. I am moving forward in a positive way with my writing. I have marked my writing calendar with the goals I plan to achieve.
     It is time for me to get started, but I wish everyone a great day. I will check in later so take care.

     Good afternoon everyone. It is beautiful outside and my garden is growing beautifully. The sun is shining and the wood bees are out in full force. Friday was my husbands birthday and I want to wish him a very happy birthday and welcome to forty-five years old. He is still young at heart just like I am. I am forty-seven but still act and feel like I'm still in my twenties.
     I got a lot of stuff done yesterday and still have quite a bit to do today. I am setting up my garden bed to put my potatoes in the ground today and if I have enough time, my watermelons and pumpkins will be planted today as well. I will be growing them by trellis to save space and when harvested I will be taking them to the flea market to sell for my nonprofit for revenue to assist in feeding and helping more people.
     I have placed my currently published books on this site for sale if you would like an autographed copy and it would be helping our cause to help end homelessness. If you would like to make a donation instead to help out that's fine too.
     I have been working on my books in progress and making very good time on them. The goal is to have all three done the first week of June and then the editing phase will begin. I usually do two personal edits before sending it to the editor. Creating my stories are my passion.
     I create my stories from everyday people and things around me. Even situations inspire me to write. I don't think I could be myself if I couldn't write. My husband knows how important writing is to me and fully supports me. I love him to death and would never trade him for anything. Well, it's that time again for me to get other things done. I wish everyone a blessed night. Take care.

05/09/2018

     Good morning my east coast and west coast family and friends. It is a glorious morning here today. The sun is shining and birds chirping. I have the dogs outside playing in the yard while I wake up and enjoy my cup of coffee. I have an appointment this morning to take our car for servicing and a car wash at the dealership. I will be there for a minute so I will be taking my laptop to do some writing while I wait.
     My foot is still in a cast and I have a doctors appointment on Monday to get a referral to have diabetic shoes made for my feet. I also get to see a pulmonologist in June for a strange cough I have had since August of last year. Every doctor I have been too said something different, so I want a lung doctor to find out.
     I have been working on my garden which is starting to grow now and I have five stalks of corn, five lettuce plants, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, cucumbers, and carrots that have already broken ground and the seedlings are about three inches high. I am proud of my little garden and talk to them every morning as I give them something to drink. I will be planting watermelons and pumpkins next month to take to the flea market for charity.
     As far as my writing goes, I will be finishing up the first chapter of nine in one book, the sixth chapter of eleven in another book, and a short story for an erotic book I am working on. I have plenty to do and if everything goes right today those will be completed. I should have all three ready for publishing next month and then I will begin the next book. I have outlines already made for another thirty-nine books to be written and with faith, I will have most if not all of them done this year.
     Well, it is time to get going this morning because I have to stop and vacuum the car out before heading to the dealership. I wish everyone an awesome "Hump Day" and a blessed and prosperous day.

05/08/2018

     Good morning, everyone. How are you? I got up a little early but an hour past my alarm. I just finished updating my to-do list for today. I have plenty to do to get everything caught up. I just started laminating my promotional bookmarkers for my author table on Saturday at the local flea market. I will be placing ads and notices everywhere to let everyone locally know that I will be there to come on out and purchase an autographed book. I am so excited.
     I will be making some plaster paper mache masks this week to take also. I look forward to meeting people even though I am an introvert but a percentage of the revenue will go to my charity that assists the homeless in regaining their self-sufficiency. I look forward to helping more people this year than last year. I have to update its website being that due to health problems last year I couldn't get out as much as I would have liked.
     It will be a better year this year and I remain hopeful that everything will work themselves out. I have lots to do and I am even getting ready to do some videos or podcasting about my books as well as possibly one about abuse, trauma, and the recovery to which I am still dealing with certain issues of my past life. I want others to know that you can become a survivor and that they are not alone.
     Well, it is time to get my day started now that the coffee cup is empty and I will attempt to keep you updated every day on what new things this indie author is up too. Have a great day and take care.

05/01/2018

Hey everyone! How are we doing today? It is the first day of May and I wonder where the year is going. I just got back from wound care about my diabetic ulcer on under my big toe and I am back in a cast on that foot. The ulcer on the other toe has healed and I can go back to wearing regular shoes, but they are calling about getting me custom inserts or shoes to take the pressure off my feet when I walk.
The ulcer in the cast is not healing like it is supposed too and it is becoming frustrating. I just wish it would heal but now my feet are getting blood to them but the tiny veins are too weak to push the blood out of my toe, so it stays reddish-purple around my big toe. It will heal eventually and I just have to be patient for now.
On to other things, I finished writing thirty-six hundred words last night of chapter six and it is just getting to a really good part. I find it relaxing but exciting when I write and work on my books. I love being a part of the story and living it in my mind as I touch the keyboard.
Today I should be finishing chapter six and beginning chapter seven of my next book the first of a series. I have another book also in progress that the first draft should be done in about two weeks and the editing should begin on both of them about the same time. I have been working very hard lately to get things back to normal and working efficiently and it seems to be working correctly.
It is time for me to finish this post so that I can get to work writing. I wish everyone an awesome and blessed day and don’t forget to check out the site for new short stories and autographed books for purchase. Take care.

04/30/2018

“Happy Monday!” It is the beginning of the work week for most everyone and I wish you an awesome day. I was up early this morning trying to keep on my new schedule so that everything will get done. I still have some things that I should have gotten done over the weekend but was unable to. Today will be a good day while I work on my writing and some other things too.
I received my order of the three books I have published yesterday to sell on my site and at the local flea market on the weekends. I will be setting up an author table every weekend to get my name and brand out there. I am very proud to see them in the physical form. The covers look great and now I have the beginning of my personal bookshelf. My husband is having coffee with me this morning and I love spending the time with him.
Well, I just finished making breakfast for everyone and now I am on my own time. My plan is to get a lot of writing done today and hopefully I will be able to start the editing process next Monday. I am looking forward to having the first book in this series done.
I feel pretty good and positive today but the day has only begun and anything can happen. 🙂 My chores are next to be done on my schedule which is just sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the bathrooms. It is pretty easy and I have only scheduled an hour to get it completed before moving on to some more writing.
I will be placing my books on the site today for sale. They will be autographed copies which you can’t get on the Amazon books. I am working on a way to get that done but for now, I will be selling them on this site. I hope that everyone checks them out and gives me feedback on them.
I know this post is kind of short today but I need to get some other things checked and done. I hope that everyone has a wonderful and blessed day.

04/25/2018

Good morning, everyone. It is “Hump Day” and soon the weekend will be here. I just woke up a few minutes ago which would be seven thirty and I still have a slight sinus headache that started yesterday. Other than that, I feel okay but the day has just started. I hope everyone had a good night and got plenty of rest? I also want to say thank you to everyone who has followed and is following my blog.
This morning I have another doctor’s appointment for a mental health medication renewal. I can’t wait to chat with her and tell her how I have been feeling lately. I have had this full body numbness which can’t be explained. It has not affected my writing but it does make me uneasy.
This morning my left arm is a little sore due to getting a tetanus shot yesterday for stepping on a rusty nail. It is okay and I can deal with it but it is the body aches and pains that are annoying this morning. I am sitting here drinking my first cup of coffee and thinking about my day ahead. It looks good so far.
My husband helped me clean the house last night before bed so it wouldn’t need any real cleaning this morning. That makes it easier for me to get some stuff done today. I am looking forward to getting home from doctor appointment and jumping right into my writing. I have two books in progress and should be done with one and ready for the editor around the first of the month.
I am trying to stay on my goal list and stop procrastinating and get things done. I have finally said that I should come first and what makes me happy. My family comes next which always makes me smile and feel happy.
Today looks good and I anticipate watching the garden that I planted recently grow. It is another source of therapy for me which I love doing any type of landscaping. When we buy our property and begin building our forever home, I have already seen in dreams and thoughts about how it will be landscaped.
Last night I purchased some of my published books from Amazon to sell at a local flea market and to place on my website. I will be selling autographed copies and a percentage of the money will go towards the nonprofit I founded to assist the homeless and needy families.
I told my husband last night while out driving running errands that if I don’t do anything meaningful in my life, I at least want to help people that need a helping hand which will be my good deed for a lifetime. I want to know that I did something to help my fellow man.
Well, it is getting later on in the morning and I need to get ready to go so I wish everyone a wonderful and prosperous day. I hope to hear from everyone and some good feedback. If you would like to help out, go check out the links to the left of this posting to purchase your autographed copy of one of my published books. Have a blessed day and take care.

“Happy Weekend Everyone!!” I think I need to change the title of these posts from daily to weekly being that it has been rough trying to get here every day. My husband was down with the flu for about five days and still recovering and now I am dealing with allergies which are miserable. I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend?
It has been windy here all day and I love it because then it is not so hot outside. Doesn’t do any good for my allergies though. I have made my mind up to quit smoking and I have set the date which is Thursday. I have gotten the patches to help and have set aside some things to do to keep my hands and mind busy. I am amped about it because I am starting to dislike the taste and smell of them.
My husband is not ready to quit yet but has agreed to show his support and will not smoke in the house or around me until I can handle it. I love him so much because he cares about me so much. It will be difficult but I know that I can accomplish it.
I have gotten back into my writing and I will be starting a new chapter in one book, finishing a chapter on another book, and working on a third book. I need to disappear into my stories for a bit, lol. They are my stress reliever and hideaway. I am finally beginning to move forward with life and be happy.
For Easter, my husband bought me a 2017 Nissan Versa so now we have reliable transportation when we need to go somewhere. I don’t care to leave the house much except to run to the store or doctor’s appointments so the mileage will stay pretty low. When we first got it, it only had 44 miles on it and we are the first owners. It was a surprise and I love it just like I love my husband and soulmate.
Well, I will get off here to start my writing time and I should be here in the morning to post again before I clip coupons. Take care everyone and I will chat more tomorrow.

04/05/2018

Hello everyone. Sorry I missed yesterday posting on here and got a late start today. I just got out of a doctor’s appointment where a cast was put on my foot because of a diabetic ulcer under my big toe. Now, I am sitting out in front of a chiropractor’s office where my husband is getting checked and adjusted because of a car accident he was in. He was the passenger and the driver thought doing sixty in a thirty-five zone would be beneficial to get to where I was dealing with my sister-in-law having a bad seizure. A car suddenly stopped in front of them and they rear-ended it. He is okay but his neck and back hurt and he cannot help me as much because of it.
After we leave here we are stopping by the dealership to have our car washed and then back home where I can get some writing done. I miss my writing but now things are going back to normal and our friend came home from the hospital today which is great because we missed him. I thought that I would have had my next book ready for the editor at the beginning of this month but things got crazy for a minute dealing with family and now that I have washed my hands of them I am free to get back to living my life.
Today, the plan is to get back into working on it and having it ready before the end of the month. The way things look I might be able to have the two books I have been working on ready for the editor. I can write pretty much a whole five-thousand-word chapter a night when left alone which means that both books should be completed. Also, I have in mind of writing an erotic short story book which wouldn’t take long because I have what I need to get started. I just need to find out where to publish it at since Amazon might not appreciate it being on their site. I will have to check into it.
I do have a few things to do when I first get home like starting some laundry, sweeping and mopping the floors, and thinking about what to cook for dinner. Yes, being with a cast on my leg I still have to do things around the house. It is my punishment because I don’t know how to stay off my feet, lol.
Well, we made it home and was happy to see my friend home from the hospital. My husband is now trying to fix one of the lawnmowers so the grass can be cut. I am sitting out here on the porch writing this post so that I can also spend time with him and the dogs out in the yard.
So, let me get started on my writing while I am just sitting here on my butt with this cast on. I should be able to keep posting every day now with everything calming down and my stress level lowering. I feel pretty good today and actually look forward to tomorrow.
Well, let me get off here and get to writing and I wish everyone an awesome evening. Take care.

04/03/2018

Today has been such a free feeling for me. I have had nothing but stress and drama for the last few weeks outside of my own household. Today, I have been able to free myself from all that hinders me and my marriage. I am no longer responsible for people who don’t appreciate anything, want to control everything, greed for money and materialistic things, and drama filled lives. It was becoming such a burden on my life and mental health status that lots of bad things were beginning to happen within myself. I have put myself on hold for so long and doing for others, OUTSIDE of where we live, that it now feels like I can shed that old tired skin off and live life the way it was meant for living.
I do not speak for my husband, but I must refrain from associating with his side of the family to keep myself positive and moving forward. They live differently than what I am used to and have different values than my own. It seems that what is pleasing and satisfying to them, makes me feel like I am just stuck in a sphere or frozen state never moving forward and only being content with dullness. It seems that some of them only survive to take what they can get from others, sucking the very essence and life out of everyone around them.
I guess it is true that misery really does love company and they are a perfect example of that. No one can really be happy around them and it is liberating to be free from them and only being able to live and be happy as only I know how. Like I said, I cannot speak for my husband, and I will never keep him from them, but we have a better life ahead of us and God will be leading the way.
Now, on to better notes, I am regaining a piece of me that had hid for a few weeks not knowing when it would be safe to poke it’s head out and enjoy what life has to offer. I am shedding off hinderances and putting back up on the shelves childish things to use what God has given me. It has been a rollercoaster ride for the past few years with lots of family leaving this life and moving on to a better place without pain and sorrow. There are not too many of the elders left and when they are all gone it would be hard because of no one being there to answer my still sought-after questions of life and advice. The world is going to hell in a handbag and I refuse to sit around and let life pass me by.
Today, I begin writing again and exploring fantasy so I can escape from what ails me. Sometimes, it is good to get away and relax on that white sandy beach watching the white-capped waves as they roll in. I have been so distraught over life that I seriously need a break and will find that in my stories. One of my future books will change or be deleted because of family drama. Writing it would bring ill feelings and I don’t want to return to that negative place.
I hope everyone had an awesome Easter with family and friends and I will end this post here and bid everyone a good night. Before I go, I do want to send prayers out to someone I know who is in the hospital right now and for a speedy recovery because he is missed here at home. 🙂

03/16/2018

Good morning to all my friends and family. It is about ten minutes to ten in the morning and the day looks beautiful. I started planting my seeds the other day to start our garden and have been tending to them daily. I can’t wait to see my little seedlings just so that I can begin talking to them.
Sorry I had to stop and go back to bed. I saw my back doctor yesterday and he increased my pain medication which took it all out of me this morning since I hadn’t had medication in a couple of days. That is part of the reason why I haven’t posted as much because of the discomfort and pain that I was having to endure.
When they did the neck procedure on me, it relieved about seventy percent of the pain in my neck but opened it up for me to feel everything going on in my lower back. From the lower back all the way to the bottom of my feet I feel pain and discomfort enough to keep me from concentrating on what needs to be done. It was an awful experience for me. I do not tolerate pain very well.
Anyway, I am doing better today and look forward to catching up on everything. I want to get back to writing my books and seeing them published soon. The goal now is to have two books published next month. I have two works in progress and I am having an awesome time writing them. I have missed writing here and keeping you all up to date on my life and events.
Anyone with a birthday today let me wish you a very “Happy Birthday” and I hope everyone else has a very awesome Friday and “Happy Weekend”. I need to go now and get some things done and completed before the day’s end. Have a great Friday night and will post again soon.

03/10/2018

Good morning everyone. It is twenty minutes to seven o’clock here and very peaceful. Everyone is pretty much still asleep. My little puppy woke me up a while ago because she had to go out to go potty. I decided to get a cup of coffee and sit down to get some things done or caught up. I have missed writing my posts but things needed to get done or organized around the house.
I am here for the duration now and have my motivation to continue writing back. I also have coupons coming every Sunday that I clip and use to stock up on things. I get ten newspapers every Sunday. It is a joy to save money and shop. Last year I saved over twenty-seven hundred dollars just clipping coupons.
Today I will be getting a short story that I began finished and posted on the site. Then, I have to get some writing on my books did so that I can get them published and start on the next one. I very much enjoy writing and find it good therapy. I will be ending my Free ebook promotion soon and I hope everyone gets their copy before it goes up for sale on Amazon.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far? I have plans to get a lot of writing done this weekend. I have an audiobook to approve so that I can get it up on Amazon as well. I look forward to the rest of my weekend and I got some bad news yesterday. My uncle passed away yesterday. The family assumes that he gave up on life and he will be missed very much.
Well, it is time to publish this post to get started on my other work. Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”. I wish for everyone else an awesome Saturday and a great weekend.

02/28/2018

Good afternoon all my East Coasters and good morning to all my West Coasters. How is everyone doing today? Happy Hump Day!! Two more days until the weekend and I know everyone is probably waiting with anticipation. I look forward to every morning when I wake up and feel my heart beating and the breath of air in my lungs. Today we go back home and take care of things there and visit with everyone.
I am already feeling the stress of returning and hope we are welcome back with open arms and that the house is not trashed. We have enjoyed our break away and look forward to coming back again. It is very relaxing here and I have been stress-free. We have four of our five dogs here with us and I will be happy to see our other dog who we left at home. It has been a week since we saw her and we have missed her so much.
I am off house cleaning today here because I have kept the house clean while they were gone and now she is doing the house and ordered me to relax while she does the cleaning, so I have time to sit and write. I will be getting some writing done today and yesterday I got some tweets out about my FREE ebook on this site. I have had several people download my book so far and some have enjoyed it very much.
Today, my goal is to get another chapter of one book done and write the first chapter of the second one since I have finished the detailed outline of it. I am happy when I am writing and when I spend time with my loving husband and dogs. That is what makes me truly happy and satisfied.
Since I began writing, I have found that my true passion is writing. It is my real escape from reality and each one of my short stories and books I find that there is a piece of me and my life inside each one even when it is fiction. It is good therapy and very enjoying for me. My husband being a gamer and myself a writer, it gives us space from each other even with us in the same room.
So, it is time for me to end this post and get things ready to go home after I take a shower. I will be here every day posting now that I will be in a stress-free environment and have the time to post and get everything done. So, everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome day. Take care.

02/26/2018

Good afternoon everyone. How are we doing today? I am feeling pretty good today and looking forward to the rest of my day with some writing. The house is smelling good and clean and some smooth music is playing while I am posting this. I write better when there is nice music playing. It seems to drown out all the noise around me.
It has been raining off and on all morning and I have sat out on the porch for a bit while getting the dogs out. I love the smell in the air after a good rain. So, did everyone have a good weekend? Mine was very relaxing and I took somewhat of a break from writing to clear my head and feel that there is no stress here like there is at home.
I had to go to my site and change the code for the free ebook so now everyone should have no problem downloading it. I have had some people say that they have enjoyed reading it, but it will only be free for a little while longer before going up on Amazon for sale. Please get your copy now while it is free.
Well, my day is full of getting things done with the two books that I am writing because my deadline is getting close to having them sent to the editor. I am excited about being a published author and look ahead to all the other books that I will write. I have a short story that I have to finish for the site so I will end this post here and wish everyone a “Happy Monday” and will post again soon.
Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great and prosperous day. Take care.

02/24/2018

Hello everyone. I just got finished cleaning the house and now I can sit and relax until dinner time. We are at our friends’ house sitting with their dad and it has been nice. We brought four of our five dogs with us and they get along great with their four small dogs. Our nine-month-old lab has gone into heat so we are just going to have a good old time with her. At least they only have two boys and one is gone with our friend and the other one here is too small to reach anything.
It has been nice being here and their dad is good people and we have awesome conversations. I have been able to sit and relax and now since everything is done I can work on my writing. It has been great weather here for being February. I call it a heat wave with our temperatures in the upper seventies and eighties.
I will be starting to write the second book that I finished the detailed outline on the other night so that will be two works in progress that I hope to publish soon. I have been doing some marketing and have had two of my book read in the Kindle lending library and a few downloads of my free book, “The Battle for Joshua”. I am having a great time writing and I know it will take patience before sales really start picking up more.
Well, I have a short story to finish and post on the site and wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else an awesome weekend. Take care.

02/19/2018

Good morning everyone. It is almost seven o’clock in the morning here and a little chilly outside with cloudy skies. One of my older dogs woke me up because they had to go out and I figured I might as well stay up and make the coffee. My husband and I went to bed about three o’clock this morning so I have only had about three hours of sleep and I have a doctor’s appointment at one o’clock today. I will be taking a nap and then a shower before going.
I have had a lot on my mind lately and still dealing with my bowel problem. There has been a little drama here at home but nothing I can’t deal with. I have tried putting my mind back into my writing to escape from everything. I have two works in progress where I have five chapters written in one book and just finished the detailed and organized outline of my other book.
The audiobook of The Battle for Joshua should be completed by the end of the month and I am excited about getting it up on Amazon also. My goal and plan are to have both of my works in progress ready for the editor around the first of the month. I am proud of the three books I have published already and have high expectations for them.
Well, I need to get some other things done and wish everyone a “Happy Monday”. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome and prosperous day. Take care.

02/15/2018

I truly apologize for not posting since January 31st. There have been a lot of things going on with my health which has caused a lot of turmoil. I was scheduled to see my psychiatrist for my next refills of medication but we had some freak snow storms coming through which Dalton panics and everything shuts down. So, I never made it to my doctor and ran out of medication for ten days which caused some serious withdrawals which concerned my husband enough to make me housebound and even he called the pharmacy asking them to get ahold of my doctor for refills.
They finally got ahold of the doctor and refilled my medications so I am back on my mental health medication. Then, I went to see my primary care doctor and I have a diabetic ulcer on the bottom of my big toe which I now have to wear a walking boot until my appointment with wound care on Monday. I also have a major infection in the same foot which the doctor has me on a strong antibiotic for the infection.
On top of everything else, Now I am having bowel issues. I fill like I have to go only to sit in pain on the toilet as my body has contractions making me push when there is nothing there to push out. Having this issue for the past few days, I ended up prolapsing my anus which I had to take a hot bath and push it back in. I have been having severe abdominal cramps which have made me want to sleep so that my bowels can rest and I can be pain-free for a few hours. I have been walking gently while holding my lower abdomen so that it is not jarred. I have actually been miserable for the past few days.
Things here at home have been a little out of sorts. My husband and I are good and have been spending time with each other, but the relationship between his sister and I has been awkward. I have no clue as to what is going on but the closeness that we used to share is not there anymore. It feels like we are miles apart and all she does is stay in her room. I understand that I stay in my room a lot but I am being productive with my writing and getting things done. It seems we are drifting apart and losing the closeness we used to share.
Now you see that I am as normal as anyone else and have issues like any normal human being. I am always looking to make my relationship with my readers more personal so that you can get to know me better. I am no better than anyone else and I hope through my postings I have proved that.
Well, now that I feel a little better and have some energy I am going to get back to working on some things to keep moving forward. I hope everyone had a perfect and special Valentine’s Day and will talk again soon. Take care.

Hello everyone. How are you doing today? Happy Hump Day! The weekend is coming closer for all those who don’t work weekends. This morning I had the procedure on my neck and it went very well. I thought I would panic with them putting injections in my cervical spine but I felt hardly anything. It could have been with all the pain medication I had in me, I don’t know. I woke up from it a little while ago and the only discomfort I have right now is a slight tension headache.
I just had a rough morning because I couldn’t drink any coffee this morning or even water and that sucked. I’m doing okay today which is surprising. Yesterday I was subpoenaed to court for my nephew’s divorce hearing which the only thing that happened was the judge wants them to go to mediation first to see if they can agree on custody of the children. She has not been a parent to these kids since they were in diapers and only comes to see them when it is convenient and now she wants full custody.
Anyway, things can ease down now a little and I can finish writing my next two books which is the goal right now and doing some marketing for the first three books that have been published. I know it will take some time for sales to jump up there but I have patience and I know it will come. I have a list of places that I can market them and I will probably get that started tomorrow and get them up everywhere. I love my passion for writing and telling my stories.
It is now time for me to move to the next thing on my schedule for today and I will definitely be here tomorrow to keep everyone updated on my progress and to let everyone know how I am doing mentally and physically. Isn’t it nice to have someone put their everyday problems and achievements out there publicly to let you know that there are other people out there that can relate and for you to get to personally know them? I consider you all my friends and family even the new people who get to know me and I appreciate every one of you.
So let me say good evening to everyone and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and for everyone else, I wish the very best evening for you. Take care.
