My Week

Monday: Missed my 5:30am alarm because my phone died so I didn't get to eat breakfast. Which meant that by my 2pm surgery, I was STARVING. Surgery was postponed until 3 (and my stomach tried to eat itself). Complained about the lack of REAL food on my tray when I woke up but that was remedied when I ate the wonderful bread my neighbors brought me (Bread is my favorite) while watching Switched at Birth.

Tuesday: Discharge from the hospital. Came home and slept. Watched Pretty Little Liars. Slept some more. Took a shower. Went to bed.

Wednesday: Woke up at 9am, read The Sea of Tranquility until noon. Spent the rest of the day talking about how wonderful it was to everybody that would listen (and even to those who didn't want to. Sorry Karlie)

Thursday: Woke up at 9am, wrote all.freaking.day and almost forgot to take the girls to VBS. Whoops.  (But on the plus side, I'm almost finished with the first draft of Fall Into Me). Remembered to pick the girls up on time and then made our big announcement!

Friday: Woke up at 9am, wrote 1300 words for a book I'm not supposed to be working on until November, finished reading Tangled by Emma Chase (hilarious!), touched up the trim in the living room from where we got sloppy while painting Sunday. Now I'm blogging while eating dinner.

I know I've actually worked a lot this week but sleeping in until 9 the last three days has made me feel incredibly lazy.

Then I remember I had SURGERY Monday and I try to forgive myself. ;)

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
