Within The Ordinary

My days lack any real excitement

it’s just one ordinary thing after another

wash the dishes, clean the floors

and don’t forget to swab the toilet

Gross! I hate that with a vengeance

for very obvious reasons; the litany

of my days could stretch for miles

and miles into infinity if it wasn’t for

my blog and writing itself. I practice

the art of creating word pictures in

between times of menial tasks; it

breaks up the monotony of regular

life and day to day living in an

ordinary home of a woman with

big dreams and a warm heart

working to make my purest fantasies

a reality in the midst of the ordinary.

Writing: The Healthy Addiction?

Standard

I used to have this awesome digital SLR camera that I just loved. I really went to town with that thing. I went all over town trying to compose some cool shots. But, that’s in the past, Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice my Nikon for my kids. The year 2012 was a little slim, financially and we needed a little extra moolah to cover the cost of Christmas presents. There went my buddy. I had to sell it on Ebay. But, it was worth it to see their happy faces on Christmas morning. Isn’t that way you do for your kids? No hesitation.

Here it is now: 2014 and I still miss having a camera. I’ve been borrowing my daughter’s camera to feed my photo fix. I hope to save up some money to get me another SLR and this time I’m not selling it for anything. Sorry kids!

So, I don’t really have a prized possession, per se. I do count my kids and my fiance as my favorite people in my life. But, I don’t see them as possessions. That’s just creepy. I am rather attached to my computer. So much so, my honey nicknamed me “computer whiz,” which I am not. If this sucker ever broke down. Well, let’s just say, I’d be awfully sad. And that reason would be I couldn’t blog regularly and keep up with my studies on writing.

When I ponder on what thing I hold above all else, I would choose my ability to write creatively. I’ve noticed improvement in my writing ever since I’ve been blogging every day. I’m lovin’ it and I just can’t seem to stop. I write whenever I can; in the mornings, afternoons, between household chores. For pity sake, I’ve even written in my notebooks while using the bathroom. I think I’m a little obsessed. If this is an addiction, I don’t want to be cured. Keep your twelve

step mumbo-jumbo away from me. I’m not buying. Just leave this forty-something lady in peace and let me write.
