I suppose I could start with what's been going on in the world of Jesse.
I dyed my hair. It's a darkish red... it will fade. LOL. It ALWAYS fades.
I've started to try to be better to myself. I'm a mom, as some of you might know, and I've lost me somewhere along the way. My best friend and I were talking about that. It was strange to hear the words "I don't matter" come out of my own mouth. When did that happen? When did I stop mattering? I suppose I know deep inside. I let myself be forgotten.
Yes, I'm a mom, but that shouldn't the only thing I am (Right, Taz?). See, I'm spilling here, people! That in itself is a lot. Bet you didn't think you were going to get something like this when you read the title. Or did you?
So I am working on being better to myself. I started with something small- painting my nails. Then I dyed my hair, and started to put on eyeliner again (really the only make up I ever wear is around my eyes). I'm working out. Yes, I hate it and it hurts. But when I do it, I feel better. I feel like maybe I can stop being this other person that somehow took over my body.
I'm trying to reach out to people. I'm basically a hermit. I spend all my time with my kids. Like ALL my time. So I don't really talk to people, or do anything other than be a mom... Even my best friend has moments when she has to pull me from my shell just to call her. Well, I am changing that. I don't want to be that person that if something ever happened to me- no one noticed! Hell no! The world should erupt in conversation and speculation on how I died/was injured/lost my memory.... fill in the blank for whatever something was. Do you hear me world? I am still here.
I'm still writing. Just in case you're a fan reading this. I've got an editor for BM now. It should be done in a couple of weeks. Since hubby is off working in a different city, I'm alone all the time. Finding time to write is trickier now. But I am still trying. For Camp NaNoWriMo, my plan is to work on all the almost done projects I have going... so far I have 2k words done. Not what I wanted, but more than I had.
I suppose that's it for now. How are you doing? What's going on in your life? I'm here to talk if anyone needs an outside person to vent, cry, laugh, chat, or simply communicate with. We're all on this planet together- we should try and remember that.
What do you guys wanna talk about? What should my next post be about that isn't related to the other obligations I have for the blog?
