Wow, Late AND MIA... sorry

I know, I've been completely missing lately. And I apologize. Between the holidays, the boys in adn out of school and illnesses that run rampant this time of year (even though we all got the flu shot... can you imagine how bad it would be otherwise? :::shudder:::) and now my own issues, it's been rather difficult to do anything but the bare minimum online. I didn't get much writing done, per se. I've been fighting a pretty nasty migraine for the past three days, it comes and goes but when it comes it hits like a freight train and I'm fighting just to keep my lunch down with each loud noise... and in a house full of boys you can imagine how noisy it gets.

Okay, so I did some writing of ideas which usually include at least a scene or two that I want to at least get fleshed out so they stop tormenting me until I can get to them later. That was only a couple hundred words though. Then last night when I couldn't get my brain to shut down past the pain I pulled out my notebook (in the dark) and wrote down what I wanted to fix and edit on my Cowboy story and on my "Appearances" story (which still needs a better title... just saying). I think I got some good ideas down and that will take care of what I think I need to get Cowboy done and submitted somewhere else.

I swear, I'm to the point of hiring a sitter just to come and watch my kids while I write... the only problem with that is that I'd then have to explain to their parent WHAT I write... may not be a good idea if I want to keep my sitters. LOL

So, at least I got something done this week, when it's been pretty barren for the last month or two. I'm not crossing my fingers for the time to finish... cuz that just seems to jinx me. So... I'll... put it into my calendar to remind me to do it and hope THAT works... maybe if y'all cross YOUR fingers it won't jinx me. LOL

I hope everyone hits their goals, and that I'll at least get closer to mine. Have a great weekend and see y'all next week.
