I had hoped to get a good bit of editing done this weekend but I opted for real world offerings. The sun was plenty this weekend here in Maryland and although the pool was still quite chilly, it felt nice to take a dip and spend time with my family.
My babysitting adventure was a huge success and I managed to prove that I can in fact “hang” quite well with three mini humans! The babies were asleep by eight o’clock Friday night and the four year old by nine thirty and all three stayed that way ALL NIGHT! Granted, not getting to sleep until one AM myself made their six AM wake up call a little rough but hot damn! They slept all night!
I did sneak in a nap yesterday afternoon after grocery shopping and three Angry Orchards. I’m such a light weight anymore!
Today was filled with more family time with my three favorite princesses and the oldest helped me to prepare the family delicacy; a huge pot of Maryland Crab Soup. As usual, it was amazingly good. While we waited for the soup, there was plenty of time for chunky dunking.
Well, that does it for me. Back to the grind tomorrow. I have no worries that I’ll get this editing done. It’s just very disheartening that once I go through this book three or four times, I’ll still need a professional to work their magic and at the present time, I’m pretty much broke and have no idea when I’ll be able to afford one. Maybe that’s a contributing factor to my lagging pace. Oh well, at least I have so many other interests until I can afford a real live editor.
It’s all part of my fantastic voyage and for now, there’s no land in sight so I’ll just sit back and enjoy the view!

we need those moments with the little ones, for we can not make up the lost times
I completely agree. These little girls will remember the time I spent with them, not the time I dedicated to my writing. Thank you for your comment. 🙂
They are so cute, and somehow this looks like so much more fun than editing!
They will only be this small for little while so I have to get as much time in as possible loving them up. Thank you so much.
They do grow so fast 😦
