A Crazy Week...

My week has been crazy, busy and I’ve gotten nothing constructive done, certainly no writing. *whimpers* Sunday my family and I returned from a four day trip to the beach. Now, I don’t know about you and your family, but we always need a vacation from our vacations. *sighs dramatically* I’ve decided my new year’s resolution for 2010 will be for my family and I to learn how to relax when we vacation. LOL Relax…would someone remind me what that word means again. ;-)


This is what I have felt like this week!





Our week has consisted of the battery in my car dying, an emergency orthodontist visit, grocery shopping, a visit to Wal-Mart which always seems to make me want to blow my brains out—sorry for the graphicness—the free matinee to watch Horton Hears a Who...next week is Space Chimps and I’m praying it’s better than Horton...washing clothes, cleaning, washing more clothes, then more cleaning and just when I thought I'd done enough...lucky me...more cleaning!!!....LOL....two trips to the chiropractor and a round of bowling that resulted in injuries and also resulted in one of the two trips to the chiropractor. How does bowling cause injuries you might ask? ;-) My oldest got his thumb stuck in the bowling ball and instead of remaining calm so I could help him remove it, he panicked and yanked his thumb out. *facepalm* Thank God for chiropractors! LOL

My boys have been karate practicing fools this week because they have a tournament this weekend. The living room furniture has been shoved against the walls for the most part of the month. I've banned myself from the living room because I can't take it any more!!! Stop the madness!!! If I hear Let It Rock by Kevin Rudolf and You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi one more second I might scream loud enough for the Canadians to hear me! Grrr....why the music, well, they both participate in Free Style Forms which requires music for the form.

Both boys are black belts in karate, the oldest a 3rd degree, my youngest a 1st degree and both are 2008 World Champions. So, they’re goal is to become World Champions again for 2009. LOL At least they have high aspirations and they work hard for it! I’m always a weensy bit nervous because I hate to see them not achieve their dreams or goals, but I also realistically know they cannot always be winners. :-/

And as mentioned my book, Bloodlines, was accepted and has been renamed to Elfin Blood. The publisher already had one book named Bloodline, so having two with that name would have becoming a bit confusing. The contract was signed and mailed back to the publisher today. *runs around excitedly* Now, the edits will begin. *nervous gulp*

That’s been my week, boring, busy, crazy and little to no writing. I’m praying next week involves a lot of writing—begging desperately for that—so much writing that I’m sick of it by the end of the week and need to reboot with a good book. LOL

Have a naughty weekend!

LOL:) I'm glad someone else understands the need for a 'vacation from the vacation'! I've always said the best ones are when everyone's gone for the week and it's just ME at home:) Or going somewhere by myself, lol!

Congrats on the acceptance!

Margay said...

Just wanted to add my congratulations. Well done!

Gracen Miller said...

Amen, Molly!!!! That's the only time I get a vacation. *sighs dreamily* I need a ME weekend. :D

Thanks, Molly and Margay. I'm excited about the acceptance, but nervous about the edits. lol Hey, I remember your rants and frustration about the edits, Molly! I laughed at you over it...I'm not laughing now. ;-) lol

And that, my friend, is why they say to watch out for karma - it always comes around!

Ha,
I am sure if I had left the house today I might have been able to compete. Hope you have a great weekend.

Gracen,

You crack me up! But yes, I definitely know what you mean about needing recovery time. Traveling is tiring whether you're driving or flying.

Congrats on the book and I do like the name Elfin Blood!

That crazy smiley pic made me do a double take wondering if I got the right website!

Congratulations on the book - nice name! We've just had a week's vacation at home, enjoying a rare visit from oldest son, shopping for interview suit, watching movies, going on a wine-tasting tour, enjoying the sunshine... Back to real life now I suppose.
