Draining

First! An announcement. The new trailer for Take Me I’m Yours is ready and available for viewing! The embedded trailer will follow at the end of this post. 🙂

What a draining week. I’ve been so busy trying to get caught up that it’s already Friday and I’m looking at the aftermath in my house. I need to get by the bank today and the store for envelopes. I still have those thank you cards to get in the mail. But I have Birthday #3 out of the way this month (and I’m going to ignore my upcoming birthday…) so I think I can finally get back on track with the more important things.

Next week is the last week of school. The kid is having End-Of-Year-Itis that’s for sure. Yesterday the school nurse called me because he had been in the clinic for about 15 mins (I hadn’t even finished my first cup of coffee for crying out loud) complaining of a stomach ache. I had to leave work to go pick him up. He had an upset stomach and some bad allergies so I got him some meds and took him to his grandparents for the day. He immediately curled up on Grandma’s lap. By the time I got there to pick him up he was all better. Uh huh.

I’m sure he really didn’t feel good – we had a little “accident” if you will in the morning which was NOT FUN. Kids really are gross sometimes. When they’re small, it’s forgiveable. But when they know better, it’s not.

And lately bedtime has been a big chore. He doesn’t want to get to sleep when he’s supposed to. He’s up and down a lot. This is a new bad habit and it drives me up the wall.

But anyway… got some news yesterday too that wasn’t surprising but still kind of sad. It’s going to be an interesting next few weeks.

I didn’t feel like cooking last night either. I had some paperwork to catch up on for the chapter, checks to write, laundry to do, litter box to clean (I got some new litter that’s “all natrual” so we’ll see how that works out). I was a bad Mom and cooked a frozen pizza. Then we had cookies. I sat outside for a bit to enjor the nice weather and chatted on the phone to Man (he’s working late) and then put the kid int he tub and in the bed.

By the I was exhausted. All the events of the last week or so have finally caught up to me so I called it a night and turned in. Sometimes you have to do that every now and then.

I did get some other writing-related stuff done which was good. Still tweaking the manuscript, synopsis and letter. I’m getting closer to taking that plunge…

This weekend we’re going to the movies, just me and the kid. I’m really looking forward to it. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and I’ll catch ya here later. I might get the bug and blog this weekend. 😉

Happy Friday! Oh and enjoy the trailer. 🙂

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
