It’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted. I didn’t mean to go so long between posts, I swear. It just kinda happened.
So let me give you a quick update on what’s been going on around here lately:
- I’m closing down my mommy blog. Unfortunately that means you’ll probably see more parenting rants and posts on this page, but I couldn’t keep up with running two blogs.
- I’m going back to school in the fall to become a realtor. I know there are a lot of real estate agents out there, but there’s not a whole lot who are familiar with the in and outs of mobile homes, so I’m planning to focus on that. Plus, some of the online brokers offer some really amazing benefits, allow you to work from home, and work with your schedule – which is important since Boyo is in therapy 5 days a week right now.
- Speaking of therapy, we may be stopping Boyo’s Speech Therapy really soon. Things started off really well, but it’s just gone down hill from there. He and his speech therapist never connected, I don’t think she’s used to working with kiddos who are as young as he is, and the room they do it in isn’t set up very well (too many toys to distract him). Plus he may just be too young. So we’re going to do an evaluation with a speech therapist through the Regional Center to see what she has to say.
- We’re going to start painting the bedroom this weekend, and hopefully we’re finally going to get the wiring in the bathroom fixed (the previous owners used paper wrapped aluminum wiring when they changed the wiring fixture. Crazy.)
Due to everything that’s been going on, I haven’t had any time to write. I haven’t worked on the Descendants at all. I haven’t even started the new update for The Stolen Pilot. I haven’t had the energy, and any free time that I normally devote to writing has been spent filling out college applications (which, honestly, isn’t that hard since I’ll be attending a community college) and the FAFSA (which is a touch more confusing – but hey, I must have done something right because I qualified for a fee waiver). Right now I should be filling out the form to get my transcripts from my old college sent over to my new college (So many Ws… Dear younger self, what the HELL were you thinking?), but I needed a break, so here I am instead.
I do have something to share for WIPpet Wednesday though.
This week we’re going way back to chapter 7 – which is right after Vivian and Tesni bumped into the Roman Slavers. They tried to out run them, but they slipped and fell and Vivian hit her head on a rock. This snippet picks up shortly after that.
Since today is May 25th, here are 3 paragraphs (2-5=3)
Vivian wasn’t dead.
She should be, given how hard her head had smacked against that rock when she had fallen earlier and how much blood she had lost, but instead she continued to breath evenly and her eyes flickered back and forth underneath her eyelids. If Tesni didn’t know better, she’d say the girl was just sleeping – probably dreaming of a boyfriend back home or something.
Must be nice, Tesni thought as she eyed the two men next to the fire and the slave who was entertaining them with a sensual looking dance. When the slave sat down on the skinny man’s lap, she quickly glanced away and back at Vivian’s still form.
