Gosh! A day in the home life? Nothing has been a day in the life since this year began! LOL
In January, I left my career of eighteen years as a director of human resources and employee development to write full time. After that major life change, I contracted the ever-popular Covid-19 and was down for the count for a couple of weeks. Shortly after, my beloved mom was diagnosed with cancer and heart failure, and two weeks after her diagnosis, she entered into the presence of Jesus. So now it’s June??? I’ve yet to find a daily routine and now it’s summer!
But let’s get real. Every morning stars with coffee, some reflection, and snuggles from my snuggle-buddy, Peter Pan, who is nine years old. My eleven-year-old daughter will shuffle out of her room shortly after and proceed to turn the kitchen into her fake television studio as she creates the next episode of her imaginary Food Network cooking show. During which, I feverishly catch up on as much writing as I can before I set it aside after lunch for swimming, karate, planning for our first year of homeschooling this fall, and so on! I typically end my day with coffee, some much-needed companionship with my husband, Cap’n Hook, and usually about twelve interruptions from my preteen, Tinkerbell, even though she’s supposed to be in bed.
