Last week a relative arrived, unannounced at our house. Now there are 7 people plus pets who all live in my house. All of these people, including me, make messes so why is it that I'm the only one that cleans up? Oh, that's right it's my job because I'm mom.

I pretended to be ill and we talked in the foyer for a few minutes and then she left. You see the house was a mess. I had 2 large baskets of laundry in the livingroom waiting for someone, oh yeah me to put the clothes away. The house needed dusted and vacuumed but I just have been so busy writing that I've kind of neglected the housework.

Well, I guess karma was paying attention because this weekend 3 of my kids and I were all sick with bad colds and headaches. I've been so tired from getting only 3 or 4 hours of sleep that I swear I'm about to loose my mind. Members of my family claim I already have.

Here's wishing everyone good health.

Welcome to my first blog. I guess I should start with a little bit of information about me. I love books reading and writing them. My interests are as varied as my personalities: Romance, Mystery, Sci-Fi, and Thrillers. I always have a large to be read pile of books. The type I choose depends solely on my mood at the time.

My husband and I have been married for almost twenty years. It is hard to believe that we're old enough for it, but it's true. Between the kids, the pets, and the husband life is never dull. We live in the Midwest and have endured, I mean enjoyed a lot of snow and ice this winter.

I am an unpublished author working towards my goal of publication. It is a long journey, but I am up for the trip. Hey, I'm a mom, I'm prepared.
