I’m exhausted, but I like it. I’m trying to get in a real quick blog before I have to go to work. My goal is blog everyday, but….

Yesterday, at work, I got to go on a beautiful walk at the Nature Center. Bluebells were everywhere! I’d never seen anything like it! The ground was carpeted in blue. It was so pretty.

I also worked on my house yesterday, and we’re almost done with the living room. We didn’t buy enough floor tiles though, so we have to go back to Menard’s. Not sure when that’ll happen. But we’re painting the upstairs tomorrow, and I work today and tomorrow, and it feels like every day until the rest of time.

So that’s what I’ve been doing during the day.

At night, I’ve been trying to edit Fate, the sequel to My Blood Approves, so I can get that up soon. I’m hoping the first one will do better if the second one is up, too. Not that My Blood Approves is doing bad. Its actually better than expected, and I can’t thank everyone enough for all their support!!!!!

I’ve been talking to other writers, and learning to network, and that’s been fun. Well, I don’t know if fun is the right word, since I’m neurotic and nervous around new people, even on the internet. But it’s been good and interesting, and I’m definitely learning a lot from them.
I’m also reading a few books, and for fun, I plan on posting reviews of them. Probably next week.

On top of that, I’m trying to promote the new book, plus finish writing Wisdom (which isn’t getting done at all, honestly), and write a children’s book as a present for a friend. That one I won’t publish, but her baby shower is in two weeks, and I was hoping to have it ready by then.

So I’ve gotten about fours of sleep most of to the week (or less). Today I slept in and got a massive 10 hours, so I’m feeling pretty good.

Oh wow. This blog isn’t very exciting.

Here it lively it up: You should listen to the Ben Lee cover of “Kids” and the Knatterjak cover of “Time to Pretend.” Oh, also try Imogen Heap’s cover of “Thriller” and Damien Rice’s cover of “When the Doves Cry.”

Fact: I LOVE covers of songs. But these are all really, really good.

I’m out!
