A New Year, A New Reality!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 2013! I know I took a long break but having a new baby will do that to you. To be honest it was much needed. I have learned so much in the first four and a half months of my child's life. Mostly, I've learned a lot about being a parent. There will be many lessons and stuff to learn as she gets older, but right now I am enjoying each an every second with her and all that she teaches me daily.

As with new life there is always loss. On December 29th, I lost my Grandmother. She was a huge part of my life and I don't think I will ever be the same again. Sure, I will heal as time goes on and the pain won't be as intense but for now the wound is still fresh.

However, that won't stop me, Grandma would want me to keep writing. I have a new project in the works and plan to "attempt" to stick to a schedule. I will be blogging twice a week. Monday and Wednesday are my days that I have chosen to enlighten you all about my life and how real things are in it. Some funny, some sad, and all completely true. I won't lie, I will probably talk about how many times my kiddo barfed on me throughout the week and what my cat broke. <--- True story!

I will also keep Wednesday's as my WIP Wednesday. I love sharing ideas and music with you guys about stuff that inspires my writing.

And since it is technically Wednesday here are two songs I currently have on repeat with this new WIP.

Mecca Kalani -Feel Me

Plumb - Don't Deserve You

WIP Title: The Soulless
Setting: 1888, London - Whitechapel District
My take on Jack the Ripper and the lives he disrupted from his murderous rampage. 
Release Date: Late Spring/Early Summer 2014 

Sounds interesting right?

So, what's your New Year's resolution?

Mine is simple: Better time management when it comes to writing.

Happy 2014!

  1. I'm so sorry for the loss of your grandmother, that has to be rough! One of my grandmothers died when I was barely more than a year old, so I have no memories of her, but my other one is still around and doing (mostly) well currently, so I have no idea of what grief you must be handling right now.

    Your story sounds fantastic, though, and hurrah for the Plumb song! I adore Plumb.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
