Manic Monday: Cheer

Mondays...Definitely my run day. Time flies, but I feel as if time on the weekends flaps its wings so much faster. It could be that I want to do so much and there is not enough time in the day for everything I wish to complete.In any case, I love my weekends; even those like this past one where I did not do anything too exciting.

On Saturday I spent the day (yes, the entire day) organizing my office. It was a project I kept procrastinating on because there was always something else I wanted to do first. And let's face it, who wants to organize their office? This weekend, though, was it. I had resigned myself to do it and was even looking forward to it. It was going to be helpful to both my writing and to my job since I work from home 2-3 times a week. A clean, organized office is key, right? So I did it. I feel as if there is still more to do (mainly with filing, but that's another day), but I can see the top of my desk! Success!!

This happy accomplishment was so uplifting, the feeling carried over to my "fun day" with writing and errands to complete. Here's to hoping that the feeling will get me through my least favorite day of the week!

Happy Monday,

Cheer Me On!
So I spent my weekend at  the little league baseball complex.  Both my older boys (ages 7 & 10) had games this weekend - a total of 3 games over the two days.  The games are always exciting and each child likes us to respond differently to him.  For instance, my oldest son loves the cheering and adoration but my middle son doesn't want anyone cheering for him, he doesn't like the spotlight.  So we cheered loudly for the oldest one and congratulated the middle one privately after the game on his plays.  Sunday night, I was reflecting on my very busy weekend - did I mention the hours of practice in my front yard pitching to my 7 year old/middle child so he could improve his batting and build up his confidence for his games - and thought how great it would be to have my own audience to cheer me on!

My husband is a huge supporter of my writing and asks me daily how my writing is going.  I actually told him one night not to ask me how many pages I wrote because I don't like the pressure.  I do manage to write daily - but not this weekend - so I don't want to be accountable for the daily updates.  However, our weekend was so busy and kid-oriented that my husband said he'd take a personal day today to take his dad to the doctor, something I was supposed to do today, so I could write.  This suggestion really made me realize how supportive he is.  He's my #1 fan.

Thus begins my week of writing - more fun blogs to come this week from Michele and I.  Furthermore, I will be reaching 200+ pages on my YA paranormal novel, AND it's my week to work on the paranormal romance trilogy book that Michele and I are co-writing.  Busy, busy, busy - but exciting.

So please root me on as I begin my week of writing - I, like my oldest son, love to hear the crowd cheering my name loudly!
