Lucy's Big Mess is available to purchase here!

My book is still scheduled to be released nation wide October 15th, 2013! I'm just making it easier to get a copy of my book.  Yes, it is still available through TatePublishing.com.  If you have a special autograph request just let me know, I will be obliged to accommodate. I'm also debating if I want to do t-shirts and such.  Also, please send me a message on twitter or Facebook and let me know what you think.  I would love to hear feedback.

Thank you,

Finding The Positive Side To Life!

Years ago I had a hard time finding the positive side to anything. One day I realized it was a choice.  Life is not easy and does not come with instructions. I had to step back and really look at life. Where did I want to go? What did I want to do? What would make me happy? and finally; What will I be remembered for?  

That last question is the one that I constantly ask myself.  I want to give my kids a warm, happy, memory when they grow up and think back about their mother.  Writing has opened the door for me, it allowed me to be able to express how I feel.

I want people to remember me for being a positive person.  I've learned it does not do well to dwell on the past, for you cannot change it, you can revisit it, you can remember it, but it simply will not change! That's why when people look back I try to give them a positive memory.

Children and Bed Time!

I am a mother of two children. My daughter is 7 and my son is 3.  Is it just my family or is bed time another full time job in itself?  I actually believe that my kids think that bedtime is when Mommy and Daddy stay up all night, watch movies, eat ice cream, talk to Nana and Peepaw, and just party.  I think they are afraid that they are going to miss out on something if they go to bed.

What really happens after the children go to bed you might ask... NOTHING! We are so exhausted from working all day, cooking dinner, cleaning up after dinner, forcing our children to bathe, dressing them and demanding they go to bed for an hour!

Many people ask me if I seen shows on T.V....I laugh, T.V ? Hmmm. Can't say that I remember what that is. If I want to watch a show or movie I have to DVR it and hope my kids didn't delete it. By the time I get to it, if it's still there the show is now 2 months or more old. Then, if  I am lucky the kids are actually sleeping and don't wake up.

So, I guess Mommy and Daddy do stay up for a little bit. I would say long enough to unwind and relax.

I don't remember bed time being so complicated growing up.  When my mother said it's time for a bath.... I knew that meant to stop whatever i'm doing, go get my nightgown, get in the tub, get dressed, brush my teeth, give Mom and Dad a kiss and tell them good night, and I went to bed.

Now I have to threaten to take away toys. Shut off the t.v. TWICE! Then my husband threatens to spank them. This works. But wouldn't you know it, they are thirsty, hungry, and/or tired! Yes! T I R E D! Apparently in my house being too tired is an excuse why they can't "fall" asleep.

Lately my son has been refusing to sleep in his room, okay it's stormed; I can understand being 3 and afraid. He crawls in my bed and lays sideways.  What is it with children and laying sideways in a bed?  I end up being sandwiched in. LOL.

Children are funny aren't they?

Good Night Everyone!

Sorry it's been a few days since my last post.  I've been ill, busy working full-time, and of course busy with my children.

I'd like to remind everyone that my book released date is coming up! October 15th.  I've tried contacting my project manager with the publishing company about bumping up my release date, but they haven't returned my three emails or two phone calls. I'm sure they are busy. I know I am not their only client. LOL.

Any how, you can find me on twitter or facebook. My links are located at the bottom, tight hand side of the page.

Good night everyone. Stay safe. xo
