I’m cleaning off my desk so I can start blogging again and while cleaning I found lots of great stuff I thought you might enjoy!
So as with most people my desk tends to get a little messy. Well let’s just real I’ve come to think of my desk as a place where things go to die. I don’t use it often because I’m a mom and I tend to write in the living on the couch. So then the couch becomes messy and you can’t sit on it because it’s covered in my papers and notebooks and it drives my husband CRAZY! It drives me crazy as well but what can you do. I can’t just hold myself up in my office and write while Raylie is off playing in the living room. I can do it while she’s eating breakfast because it’s right off the kitchen and I can see her and she can see me but I’m pregnant and since I can’t have coffee in the morning there is no way I’m actually ready to be awake when she wakes up. This is why she’s been getting cold pop tarts and cereal in the mornings because I don’t want to cook! I miss the days where she had second breakfast because we actually ate eggs and bacon in the mornings when she’d wake up for a snack and then go back to sleep so I could get a few extra hours to cook her a meal. But that doesn’t happen anymore.
I got off topic there. Sorry I’m a mommy and pregnant my mind wonders a lot which is why my beloved blog has been suffering so. So now that I’m 18 weeks I’m going to try and do a better job. Meaning I’m cutting back on the amount of posts to one a week and my Book Boyfriend monthly post to just One Amazing book boyfriend a month instead of 5. And to start off with my new schedule I decided it was time to clean off my desk and start using it again.
While cleaning I find lots of great stuff. I tend to leave myself notes while I’m writing (If you didn’t know I’m working on my own book and that has been suffering as well.) they are short and written very sloppy because I try not to ruin my writing flow. But then when I find these said notes I can’t help but laugh because half the time I have NO CLUE what they mean!!!!
Like this note. I DON’T KNOW who these people are or why I care that their dad’s name is Garry! Apparently I thought it was important at one time I’m guessing late at night but now… NO CLUE! See this is where things go to die! Like Garry and his sons. I didn’t know I created you but you are now dead. Sorry :/
Here I thought hey why not show how I plan my blog posts out on a smooth week and then a crazy one, I also leave myself notes in my planners like Ask mom about jeans??? I don’t know what that was about but I actually planned to ask my mother about it in advance. Yes, I know most of you are probably really shocked my blog is planned out! Yes, I don’t put thought into what I’m going to write ahead of time. Amazing! I know! I actually put a lot of thought into what books I’m going to review and what I kind of week I want my blog to be about. I even plan on which post to share again on social media to go along with what’s going on during the weeks. Like if school’s just starting or ending, or if there’s a holiday I try to come with a book to help with your moods. And if it’s a 100 degrees out in the middle of summer I may post about a book set in winter to help you cool off a bit because it’s all in the mind, sometimes, but it might help you cool off along with an ice cold adult (or not) beverage.
Oh look! It’s a picture of my friends! This picture was taking at post prom my senior year of high school. We are now all mommies! How CRAZY is that! I’m going to make sure this memory has a special place on my desk after I finish cleaning it! I miss these ladies! Sometimes I still wished I lived back home in Nebraska so I could see them more.
Oh look! Another weird note I left myself! I guess I just like the description here and jotted it down quickly.
Well this was fun but I think it’s time to see the finished Product don’t you! I would also like to say No I don’t use the Mac that’s on the desk that was my husband’s attempt of trying to steal my desk. No joke a week after I created this desk for myself which was originally in the living room and put his computer on it. Let me tell you! That didn’t not make me a very happy wife. But I let it go because you need to pick your battles right! Oh and I made that beautiful purple fox at Pottery Hallow when my bestie Erika came to visit me this summer. I need to print a picture of us and place it on my desk as while.
Another quick the junk you can see in the mac is not my stuff it’s my husband’s clothes because he happens to think he needs his own closet. Why? I don’t know because there’s plenty of room in the closet in our room for both of our clothes and he tends to just put his clothes on the guest bed. But now my desk is all clean and I found a place for the picture of my friends and everything is back in its rightful place except for my husband’s computer… but I let that go remember!
Well that’s all I have for you! Until Next Time! Read on and Enjoy!
