It’s that time of year again. School time. Many parents have been shipping their kids off to school for years now, for others it’s only just begun.

That’s where I am. Yesterday was my Baby Girl’s first day of Pre-K. No problem for her, she was quite ready to leave poor Mom for a fun day of learning. I on the other hand, am still getting used to this drastic change in my life. Up at five, get ready, drink my coffee, wake the kids, dress them, do BG’s hair, get everyone’s shoes on, out the door at 7:35am, walk 15 minutes to the school, sign BG in, and walk 15 minutes back home with my son. After that it’s cleaning and writing until 1:50pm when I get to walk back to the school to get BG.

The kids have acclimated wonderfully. They enjoy the rides in the Jeep stroller, and it’s wonderful exercise for me.I may actually loose that pudge I gained over the summer! *fingers crossed*

I also have more time in the morning for writing while Disney Jr distracts Bubby.I’m sure once we have a set routine I will be more productive. Until then it’s just trying to figure out when is a good time to clean, when is Bubby distracted enough for me to write,and how fatigued am I feeling.

Change is hard, but it is life. Everything changes. Our babies grow up, go to school, then eventually no longer need us at all. Change is what you make of it. You can moop about it, or you can bend it to do your bidding, and I intend to make the most of this!

I have an opportunity to get more work done without being interrupted by BG every five minutes, I have the opportunity to better my health and fitness, and I have the opportunity to get some one on one time with my son.

I look forward to all that this change can do for me, and for my family.

What changes are being made in your life this school year, and what are you doing to insure a positive outcome?

Banshees part 2

A few months back I shared why I call my children banshees. Today I want to continue sharing with this little segment of our evening. I don't know why these kids love to scream...

WriteOnCon: I did it! I posted is huge in the writing community. It's an online writer's conference filled with fantastic writing advice, camaraderie, and even Ninja Agents. Many flock to the site each year to post up tid bits of their writing in hopes of being selected by an agent.

Last year, I mostly just attended the events, and gleaned as much as I possibly could from all the awesomeness. This year, I bucked up and put WILD FIRE's first five pages up for Critique.

Oh my GEEZY! I'm so nervous! I can only cross my fingers, down a glass of whine, and hope people like it as much as my crit group.

Did you post anything for WriteOnCon? If so link it so I can visit ;)
