For the fact that my life is chaos. The list is as follows:

Dishes, laundry, vacuum, sweep, mop, dust, yell about various socks, dishes, etc not being picked up, dump run, prep and cook supper, and of course all in between.

Shop: Because I hadn't been down there taking care of the office in a while, I'm slightly behind (ha). Quickbooks, inventory (just downloaded a new inventory program-which means every part has to be re-entered), customer accounts, the website, craigslist, etc on the advertising, phone calls, orders, answer the phone, my husband walking in every 5-10 minute for various reasons (UGH). And of course the list goes on here too.

Then, there's all the six children with various things going on in their lives at all different times.

Writing: Promo The Swan Cove Murders, my website, my blog, facebook, twitter, etc on the social media, finish final read through on Secrets of Jenkins Bridge, my critique group, Savvy Authors, SMP, etc.

And of course, the grandbaby takes priority over all this.

And we're considering setting up a local auction site. Did I say UGH?

But, of course, I grew up in a chaotic house of sorts. Four of the nine children, me included, lived at home together. Plus the other five visiting, spending the weekend, etc. Holidays were a trip!!

Not to mention this has continued for many many years as our kids ages are 23, 22, 22, 21, 20, 12. How crazy is that, lol?

I should be used to the chaos. I guess having the grandbaby to take care of (since I haven't had one in 12 years) is taking up a lot of the spare time I had for my writing. I don't regret taking care of him, but I think I need to rearrange my life a bit to accommodate my writing.

  1. You have a busy life. I can understand the chaos with six kids close in age. I have seven kids with about the same age spread as yours. But instead of 1 grandchild, I have 23. I wouldn't change a thing.
    Much success with your writing and thanks for sharing your chaos with us.

  2. My goodness. I'll never complain about being busy again!

  3. I thought I was busy but you take the prize! Oh, and I just noticed the motorcycle shop...way to go! Right now our bikes are parked since hubby is recovering from double knee replacement. I hate not having it to ride right now but I can't unload them from the trailer. LOL!
