A Note from The Front Line

Not the best way to start the day today.

I will spare you all the gory details as it involves someone in this house pooping somewhere that wasn't in the toilet. Oh yes and it wasn't me

I went apeshit (no pun intended) .  Then, I then took the kids to Target and they each got a toy.

I hate February. It is the time of year when my depression is at it's worst. With everyone home I find it hard to write, which is one of the things that usually makes me feel better.

Thanks to the kindness of a friend, my kids are currently geeking it out and playing a Dungeons & Dragons style game at his house and I was able to write for an hour today.

I also checked the bees. They are great, they ate almost all of the sugar I left them and I gave them another lump.

So despite the shit, it is turning out to be a not so bad day. I got to do two of the things I love to do the most.

No, not shitting on the floor and screaming at the kids, very funny.

I'm looking forward to the end of vacation and dreading it at the same time, because I do kind of like my kids, they can be funny sometimes.

Tomorrow, G has decided to invite some friends over for pizza and karaoke-God help me.

Before I go, I want to mention that I found a new hero. Her name is Susanna Clarke and she wrote the book

This is her first novel-she took ten years to write it and she was 44 when it was first published. It made me feel ever so much better about my stupid almost 39 year old self banging at a stupid keyboard everyday, trying to finish a stupid story.

It's a really long book, but if you like fantasy with a touch of Jane Austen (but better I think because it's like Jane Austen with The Raven King!) then go get this. I am thinking this may be my best book of 2013.

  1. February is my worst month. A lot of yelling. A lot of napping. I really need to live in Costa Rica. Thanks for the book recommendation!
