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…

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…
