Wow, it’s February already! With this Imbolc, I really do feel the impending warmth of spring, an increase in my blessings, and the positive energy inside me willing to work hard to keep the good times rolling!
Not only that, today is my 35th birthday! Man, I cannot believe how much better my life is now than when I was 25… Heck, when I was 34! I have significantly less poison in my life, I wake up smiling more often than not, my books are selling better every month, and me and my daughter are closer than ever. Over the last year alone, I really took much more control over my own success and I intend to keep it going! 😀
Really, I never thought I’d slowly turn into the type of person who really did wake up and feel happy at how the gods have blessed me in various ways; ways I may not have seen at first but now it’s all clearing up.
So, here’s to 35! Time to make it an even better year than the last!
I am currently disobeying the most sacred of office rules: Don’t come to work when you have a cold.
It’s not a BAD cold. The worst day was yesterday and I was still able to clean the house and do all the laundry. I can breathe through my nose, I am filled with medications, and I am swabbing everything I touch with alcohol. If I still feel awful tomorrow, I will keep my contagion home with me.
In the (hopefully) soon to be concluded saga of refinancing the mortgage on my effing house, I sign the papers today after work! 😀 YAY!! I’ve been at this for almost a year. Once these are signed, the estate will be clear, too. Two birds with one stone. Finally, the only legal matter I will have to deal with will be the separation papers; which is basically a “sign then leave office” sort of thing. Easy peasy.
A happy birthday to my friend MisfitLibrarian! I am almost concerned about what shenanigans she will get into today.
I randomly logged into Create Space to work on getting Dreamhunter on Kindle (pauses for cheers of joy) and I see that I have a message.
I sold a book. To somebody I don’t know.
I’m sure this has happened before since I’ve sold a grand total of 20 or so copies of DH and I know about 8-10 of them personally (and minus the 4 copies I’ve purchased myself), but I’m still nervous that someone I don’t know has my baby in their hands. I really hope they like it. *chews fingernails*
My ankle is healing nicely and I’m spending the time reading and writing. Mostly, I’ve been working on Greenhouse but of course there are other stories floating around. I’m brainstorming the third book in the First Brood series already but that doesn’t have a title yet.
I’m a little wonky today since last night was hubbsters 30th birthday dinner. I nursed one cherry blossom martini the whole night while he got shitfaced. I also went home early so I could steal Monkeygirl cuddles and he went to a bar and got so drunk (I hear) that people were able to draw on him without his knowledge. I demand pictures, people!! XD
Since it is a rainy and crappy day, I’m sure it’ll be quiet so I can write.
Now that I’ve said that, I’m sure it won’t happen. :p
