Early Morning Thoughts: November 2, 2018

Early Morning Thoughts: November 2, 2018

It is about 6:30 in the morning, and I have been up since 1:30 a.m. after only sleeping about 2.5 hours. Surprisingly, I am not that tired. I know I will regret not going back to sleep later on in the day, but as of right now I am fine. I may try to take a nap before going to my 1 p.m. therapy appointment today. My boyfriend, Mike, and I just returned about an hour ago from an early breakfast at a diner. It was wonderful, we don’t do this nearly enough. Plus, the waitress was pretty cute. Haha 😁. 

I am super excited because I received the final edits to my MS (manuscript) last night. Now, I guess it’s off to be formatted and will be done sometime early next week. I know I say this all the time, but this is such an amazing opportunity. My MS is coming together much faster than I anticipated! I still don’t have a release date, but that is okay. I am hoping that it is done by Christmas now. 💖 That would be an absolute miracle! I still don’t know what the rest of the process is. I guess it is all a pleasant surprise. I couldn’t ask for more.

Halloween night was fun 🎃👻. My bestie came over with her older children and we tried to watch a movie. I say tried because her second youngest kid was hyper af and was basically bouncing off the walls – almost literally. We had on one of the Halloween movies. After being with my one Godson for about 5 minutes I told the bestie, Jazmine, that I don’t think I want kids now – ever. Lol. She laughed and posted it on Facebook. All-in-all, it was a good time. I love hanging out with them whenever possible. 

Today is day three of wearing the Cardiac Event Monitor. It’s not as bad as I anticipated, but still kind of a nuisance. Since I have to clip the monitor itself to my pants, I am constantly rearranging it because it always seems to be digging into my thigh. Definitely not the best feeling in the world. The only time I can disconnect it is when I am taking a shower. 

I am pretty sure that I am going to try to take a nap sometime soon. The energy that I had is wearing off rather quickly. I planned on writing more, but now I just want to lay down on the sofa and continue watching Friday The 13th.

Until next time…

Lots of Love,

  1. That’s wonderful about getting the final edits!!!! Just go with the flow like you’re doing! Every publishing experience will be different and sometimes you can’t predict the chain of events ahead no matter what your editor tells you!

    Even though it’s pain in the everythng, I’m glad you’re wearing the cardiac monitor….I’m not just glad—I’m proud of you, actually….it’s not easy to take action, go see the doctor & get the damn thing to begin with!
    So give yourself credit!

    Lots of love to you, Sam!!! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕Hope your therapy session goes well & that you get a nap in!
