Its January 1st, and as promised and scheduled, today is the first day back at that novel. I’ve only woken up, and i’m sitting down with my wakey drink attempting to wipe the sleep out of my ENTIRE body. The newborn takes away from the sleep life 😉 and with the kids still home until the 5th, I am faced with the struggle of distractions. I gotta give myself some credit. I am only now hitting the universal mom limit of “I can’t wait for them to go back to school.” many I know hit that in the first few days of the break. This mom is ready for her ME time again. No more running up and down the halls, no more yelling and screaming, no more light saber battles, and no more … yes… you know it… drum roll please…NO MORE MESSY HOUSE! Having five kids around when your trying to clean is like trying to rake leaves on a windy day. You turn around and everything is messy again. Considering they are still here, I’m going to attempt to get this editing started. Whether I get a lot done, or only a little, I will take comfort in knowing I’m doing it.

Here I am, I’ve planned my posts for WP today, and I’m ready to fulfill my daily routine. This serves as my good morning, and welcome to 2016 post. I did start dabbling in a short excerpt yesterday. Have a happy and humorous morning read.
Jenny phoned Sage around 4:30 in the evening. It had been a while since they talked. Sage was searching frantically in his car for his ski glasses, shuffling things around loudly he said, “Sweet! I just found twenty buck!” “Awesome! See that’s whats happens when we clean our cars… It’s like Christmas morning all over again.” Jenny said with a sarcastic humor in her voice. Sage let out a joyous laughter and replied. “Dangit! Jenny you and your silly random antics.” He repeated her comment out loud as if to let it set into his own head for later use, and began to reminisce on the older days of their friendship. “Do you remember when you….” Sage began to say. A moment of nostalgia had hit them both. laughter spread with contagiousness through the phone receiver, and they went on for hours catching up. “I’ve gotta get going Sage, I’ve got some things I’ve got to take care of, lets talk again soon.” “Sound great Jenny.” “Alright then its settled. “
