Countdown to my Birthday!

That's right Stalkers, I have exactly 5 days until my birthday and I'll be the big...dare I say it?  


It was scary just typing it.  And yet not so much. Mostly because I don't feel like I'm almost 30.  I feel like I'm still a kid who just gets to do grown up things now.  Of course the fact that I have my own kids kind of puts things into perspective.  Especially when one of them jumps on me in the morning to wake me up.

Where they find their energy I'll never know.  But someone should find out and bottle that shit.  That's all I'm saying.  

Anyhoo..back to the birthday.  

I don't have anything in particular planned.  My kids will be in school so I'll get to have a day of resting and relaxing.  And going to see the new Captain America movie, unless something else captures my eye.

But most importantly I get to celebrate another year of being alive.  Another year of fighting obstacles and coming up victorious.

And for those of you who have been with me since the start of this blog, you can attest to the ups and downs that I have had.  The highs and lows that sometimes seem almost insurmountable and yet I have come out of it stronger and wiser.

So today I am going to smile, finish my homework lol...and keep in mind that my worse day is shadowed by someone else's and that no matter what the sun will come out.

Thanks to everyone for reading.  Later

Breathing Ch. 05

The picture above corresponds with the chapter.  As all of you know the story Breathing is a bit of a change from what I'm used to writing.  It's dark and daring.  It's sad and emotional.  It's...not what I usually write.  And for that reason alone it can be a bit draining.  

The character Sonya is a small part of me that I never let anyone see before.  She's scared and alone.  Loved and yet afraid to love back.  And in the last chapter you see her open up a little bit and let a little of the pain drift away.

Well this chapter will be just as draining for some as the last, but I promise that the sun is about to start peeking through the clouds after this.  

So without further hesitation I give you Breathing.

Hello, I'm Back Again.

I can just see the rolling eyes in my head right now.  "Of course you're back..again.  But for how long?"  

And I can completely understand why you would think that.  I come and then I go....I come back and then I leave again.  I'm the definition of spastic when it comes to posting.  And the only thing I can tell you happened.  But that's not an excuse either.  I can still post even if it's not a giant post.  At least to let you know that I'm still alive and that I have not forgotten about all of you.  Well the ones of you who have stayed with me this long.  

Did I mention how awesome I think you guys are?  I didn't?  

Well you all flippin' rock! 

To catch all of you up here is what has been happening with me for the past year and a half.  

I discharged from the Army in November of 2012 for good this time.  And while I had a lot of amazing experiences with the military I found that I was needed at home with my children.  And so I finished out my contract and moved to good ole Texas.  

For about 6 months I looked for a job and gathered paperwork for school and then finally I started school in June of last year, 2013.  I've been in classes ever since.  My main goal has been to finish school for this past year and so I've taken classes during the Summer, Fall, and now the Spring semester will be finishing up soon.  Yay to that.  


I start classes again in the Summer.  Talk about exhausting right.  But lately I've been feeling this urge to write and share my thoughts and then finally it clicked.  "I have a blogger account.  Why don't I just post here?"  And ta-da!  Here I am.

Just the other day I started working on Chapter 5 of Breathing.  A lot of people have emailed me inquiring when I would be finished and of course I felt horrible because to me it had only been a few months since I submitted.  However, when I checked I saw that it had been well over a year.  

A freaking year?!!

Where does the time go?  

Well no more!  

I won't promise to have stories up every week or even every month, but I will try my best to post something here to let you all know what to expect.  And if all goes well I will have a new update for Breathing by the weekend.  I want to make it a longer chapter to compensate for all the time I've had between each post.

So on that  lol.

And I will see you back here again this week.  

Thanks again to all of my followers.  You are the reason I want to finish my stories.  What started off being voices of imaginary people in my head has turned into real people living life on paper.  And I never imagined anyone would actually want to read it.
