2014 In Perspective

If I was to stand in this week back in 2013 and someone was to tell me of all the things I’m going to find myself in, I’ll have scoffed and said, “Yeah, right… That’ll never happen. Why would I make that much crazy for myself?” 🙂

Yet, that’s exactly what I did and made myself wrong in my assumptions. 😉

This year, like the ones before, have seen plenty of bad days of me, but the one thing this year had that the previous ones didn’t was the increase in good days. As the hours ticked by – some crawling, some echoing the sonic boom – I’ve made it through another year and marvel, yes – marvel, at all the things I’ve managed to accomplish. 😀

Some were planned, while others not so much. XD

But the surprises that lay in wait for me has made this year a rarity, indeed. Especially since I hadn’t made any goals for 2014. I was too battered by 2013 to even think about getting myself back into the swing of things. Add the possibility that my children may be asthmatic on top of it and my husband’s added responsibilities at work that were already above and beyond his job description, 2014 came with the impending feel of doom.

Either I crawl to the finish line, or it was going to kill me. :/

Oh… I’m crawling, but it is with a smile and a light heart instead of a heavy one. ❤

So… 2014, ladies and gentlemen, in review~  ➡

Trent & Chase – Chapters 9 & 10 are now LIVE!

Sick and tired of my Family posts yet? 😉

Yeah, that’s what I thought. You know what? Me too.

That’s why this is going up today instead of next Tuesday, and there’s an erotic scene bonus (that’s not in the story for those of you not interested. You’ll have to click the extra link in the story to get there).

You’re welcome. XD

So, before NaNoWriMo, we’ve reached the point of the story where I finally got them on the same floor, so to speak. It only took 50,000 words. Bad news, or good news depending if you like the story I suppose, is this – there are another 50,000 words coming and this book closes out on Chapter 17.

That means there is 7 more chapters coming plus one more erotic section because I made a promise to WitchyWoman (we’re writing buddies) that I will write smut until the end of NaNoWriMo and post them if she reaches the finish line.

Ya know what? She DID! ⭐ Congratulations ⭐ to her for such a massive accomplishment. More than me, I have to say. I cheated. XD

So, here we go… Trent & Chase… figuring each other out… without third wheels.

That’s right, girl. You don’t count as a third wheel do you, Walnut? *nuzzles and kisses the dog’s head*

ENJOY! Chapters NINE & TEN.

DISCLAIMER~~~~ Because we love these so much:

  1. Chapters 9 and 10 are beta’d by the awesome BITWORKS!
  2. Chapter 10’s EXTRA is not beta’d.
  3. ALL MISTAKES ARE MINE! (to have and to hold until death do us part).
  4. Please do not steal. My writing isn’t that good. Write something yourself. I’m sure you can do much better than I can and then hit me with a link to read, ay?

Family… ‘Nuff Said

It’s the 3rd day of December, and I’m already far, far behind. The lights we put up for Halloween are still up. My Christmas decorations for the exterior are well behind, but the days are getting harder instead of easier.

At least I am on medication and recovering now. 🙂
