This is what I ask Hubby when I need time to write. When you both work, have two young children and a dog, it's hard to find personal time for marriage, much less personal time for one's self. Sometimes ... (and don't tell Mr. Hrezo this) but sometimes I have to finagle, coerce, stretch the limits a little ...
All so I can have time to write. Hey, we all make sacrifices and we're all busy. Often times it's our dedication that cultivates success rather than sheer talent. At times, I tell Hubby, "But, honey, what if I'm brilliant?? What if there's an amazing story inside me and it never gets out because we didn't make time for it??"
Yeah, I know. I do what I can. But there could be truth to those words, and sometimes life gets in the way too often. We have to want it bad enough to make it happen. But you know what? When I woke up this morning to take the dog out, I stepped into our back sun room and lo and behold! Hubby had surprised me with a brand new work area! A wrap-around desk so I can swivel back and forth between laptops and room in the middle for pen and paper and sticky notes and coffee, etc. What a guy! He worked all night putting it together while I was sleeping.
Of course, now I have to show it off .... Feast your eyes:
So yeah, view of the woods and plenty of room to stretch out. For Christmas Hubby surprised me with a new leather office chair. Do I have a great guy or what?? Notice the bag of Ghiradelli dark chocolates behind Little PK's head .... Uh-huh. A man that knows I need chocolate is man after my own heart.
So this is where I work. Jen at Unedited has pics posted today of where she works. And for my fellow parents, if you're not familiar with Smories, it's a wonderful kid website. Little PK loves it. It's just videos of different children reading stories. Kids can click around to the different children, listen and learn.
On a side note, I just wanted to give props to Dezz over at HOLLYWOOD SPY. He designed my title banner for my blog and I LOVE it. Don't know Hollywood Spy? Check it out! It's a lot of fun and you can get your lowdown on the latest entertainment. If I wanna know what latest movie is coming out, I just check out Hollywood Spy. He is awesome!
A HUGE welcome to new friends and fellow crusaders! So glad you're here. I don't have any questions for you today, but if there's anything you'd like to know about me, please ask. I'll try to answer everything in my next post. If you don't have any questions, tell me where YOU do your writing ....
