The Push



I have stared at this blog for a very long time not knowing what to write. How do I come back after being away for so long? What if no one reads it? What about how awful my grammar has become due to my lack of writing? I am out of practice, ashamed, and scared. 

My daughter was born almost three years ago and I might have pecked at the keyboard a few times. Once or twice I think I managed to pick up a pen and jot some things down. Kids change everything. I am a stay at home mom and writer (lacking in the writer department as of late). My time is her time. My life is her life. I am okay with that. 

But, I miss parts of my old life. 

I miss reading.
 
I miss writing.

I miss being an active author. 

I have so many stories rolling around in my head. Two of them are really good and could possibly turn into something great if I put some more time into them. Where do I find the time? How do I make it?

I have read all of the articles. Sure, I have tried to sneak off here and there. Write when she is being independent. Write at night once she goes to bed. My mind just isn’t in it folks and it hasn’t been in the almost three years she has been on this planet. I know that is okay. I know this is normal. 

I also know the desire to write is getting greater. The excuses I have made in the past are getting limited and my muses will only tolerate them for so much longer. I need to stop falling into the routine once I have some spare time of doing other things.

Write for thirty minutes because honestly, that laundry will be okay for a little longer.
Game less. This is a hard one folks. Hubby and I are huge video gamers and once little one goes to bed if we don’t fall asleep ourselves we get in some good game time. I have to curb this habit/addiction. I need to pick one or two nights a week to game and then a little on the weekends. The rest of the time I should write. I want to write. If I start doing the work, I won’t need to regulate anything; all I will want to do is read and write. I just need the push.

Who wants to push me?

I am going to push myself a bit and attempt to blog once a week. No, I will blog once a week. Whether anyone even reads this or not I can just address the words to myself as a reminder.
 
Bonnie, go write. 

That being said, I’ve got some work to do. Peace.
Bonnie

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…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
