Relentless – I’m at the halfway point.

I spent most of yesterday, from about 3 am on, dealing with a puking three year old. Man was she miserable and I hate when they’re so sick and you can’t help them other than to wipe faces and rub backs. Poor sweetie pie. She’s better now, thank goodness. On Wednesday my middle kiddo woke up at 4 am with this same thing. He was so sick he missed the kindergarten field trip to the zoo.

I’m still exhausted from next to no sleep. You know I got like tiny bits of mother sleep, not quite deep enough because I was attuned to her every sound. We had the barf bucket in bed with us even. So glamorous.

All I know is I’m hella relieved I’m not sick and it seems to have bypassed my oldest but my husband got his share, only he’s away from home so it’s worse for him.

I missed Battlestar Galactica last night. I’ll have to catch it on the web at Sci Fi. I actually have a good excuse, I was writing.

I’ve been over at Novelspot this week talking about my personal journey from two lines in the window until right now.  It’s funny, writing it all out over the week, bit by bit only makes me feel luckier about where I am and what I do.

If you’re interested it starts with:

Two Lines in the Window
Building My House Brick By Brick
With a Little Bit of Fairy Dust
But Sometimes Your Bag of Fairy Dust Gets Low
Patience Perseverance and Planning
Okay The House Is Built, what’s Next

Tomorrow I’ll finish up with a little primer on navigating the authorial waters but these entries above are my journey from there to here.

    Congrats on your halfway point. Hope the little one gets better soon.

    And read the articles on your journey. Thanks for sharing it. It’s something I needed to read right now. So thanks for the sharing and insight.

    There’s nothing like spending the night on bucket detail to let you know you’re a mom.

    Don’t worry about BSG! It wasn’t on – I was bummed. Pried my eyelids open until 10:00 to watch it and they put a rerun of SG-1 on instead. What up? I was certain the season wasn’t over last week.

    I feel for you. It’s the worst when your little ones are sick. I’d rather be sick them have them sick. ANd it’s always at 3:00 am. What is it with that. Well I hope every one is a little better. Enjoyed reading your Novel Spot pieces.
