Hey Everybody

It's been a long day. I left at 10 this morning and got home at 4 for 5 minutes before I was out the door again to help my oldest. Now I'm home for the night. No work on my book today, and I don't know if I'll get to it tonight. I'm also proofing a pastor's thesis for his masters. It's quite interesting. But it means I have a lot on my plate trying to get everything done in a timely manner. He wants the thesis back in a week. It won't take that long, which is good. I'll also have Freedom's Cry finished in that time. Not by Saturday liked I hoped, but definitely by Easter. Counseling, laundry, groceries, and my son, who will be stopping by for pizza, which I needed to go get another for both of us. It's been a productive day away from home. Now to make it productive on the home front, but that might need to wait until tomorrow. So I'm basically in and out. It's been one of those days. I hope your day has gone well for you. Thanks for reading.

I was busier than I expected to be and was in bed earlier than usual as I was totally wiped out by 9:30.

@just4him I finally made a big list, going to, if I have to, break things into even smaller chunks so some progress gets made

Yesterday was busy and I was beat by 9:30. I got an eight hour night's sleep last night and that doesn't happen often, so I'm ready to go this morning.

@just4him I had a good night sleep too last night, being busy helps to sleep better.

@just4him I may have to figure out a way to teach long distance. I've had quite a few responses of people who are I tread but live too far away.

@Morleyhunt There's always YouTube, but you wouldn't be making any money that way, at least not that I know of.

Sounds as if you are very busy. The pastor's thesis sounds very interesting. Can you share a bit about it?

He's actually my counselor, and his thesis concerns biblical counseling. It's actually a very good read. I'll have that finished soon as well. He asked me to proof it for him because he knows I'm an author, not because I'm counseling with him.

@just4him I wish I could find a church and a preacher/pastor that my family and I could attend and I could feel confident at opening up to a biblical counselor. Pray for me.

It's good your book will be finished by Easter. I remember you setting yourself this goal some months back.

That is slow. I hope everything is okay with you. Yes, I've been busy. I got a lot done on my book yesterday, and had a ladies brunch with women from my church this morning. This afternoon I'm going to get more work done on the book and hopefully bring it to a close, but maybe tomorrow - nope - birthday party tomorrow - then Monday I might get it finished. I hope so.

@just4him - I'm so glad you are finding time to get your writing done. None writers have no idea how time consuming it can be. I had a friend who wrote for the Dallas Morning News and wrote several books. She said it would drive her crazy when her kids were in elementary school and other moms, who had jobs in offices, would call her and start the conversations by saying, "Since you don't work, would you...?" She said she worked hard, but other people did not appreciate it.

I hope your day is productive. Maybe after this break from your book you will be able to return with renewed creativity. Sometimes seems to go that way. -- Enjoy pizza!

The pizza was delicious. I made the second one yesterday and still have leftovers. I did get a lot of work done on the book yesterday and will be working on it again today. I'm close to being finished.
