My Family


From left to right: My husband’s shoes, my son’s shoes, and my daughter’s shoes. As you can see, they definitely have their favorite colors!

I think I mention my family (husband and kids) quite a bit on social media.   I like sharing the things we do together and the things they say.  But, I don’t think I ever told you guys much about them.

I met my husband when I was nineteen.  We got married four-years and a son later on Halloween.  He’s the reason our kids will be giants.  He definitely feeds my geek side.  He’s the one that introduced me to DOCTOR WHO and the first person to encourage my love of anime.  Without a doubt he is the one that believes in me the most and supports me when I can’t even support myself.  He likes the colors black and silver, likes role playing games (dice kind), likes his anime serious, and reads a lot more than I do.

The first thing I usually have to explain about my son is that he’s autistic.  He has severely delayed social skills and his emotional responses can be extreme.  That said, he attends normal classes with the help of an aid and maintains honor roll grades.  He wants to be a video game designer and there’s no talking him out of it.  His favorite things include Mario (from Super Mario Brothers), orange (the color), drawing, and turtles.

My daughter is probably the second biggest reader in our family.  Though, she’s getting close to unseating her dad for that top spot.  She maintains good grades and changes what she wants to be when she grows up about every season.  I always look forward to what she wants to be next.  She is becoming a huge geek like her parents.  Her favorites things are purple, the 11th Doctor/Matt Smith, reading, and owls.

Fun Fact: The were all born in Lake County, here in Ohio. 

I used shoes to represent my family.
What would you choose for yours?

A Good Week

ROW80I’m glad to report the poison ivy seems to be gone.  However, lots of little scabs remain.  My “don’t scratch that” willpower exists at level 0.  I figure I should have a “normal” arm by next week.  And the healing up of my arm wasn’t the only good thing.  I finally bit the bullet and watched Leetuk’s return to Super Junior with their song Mamacita.  I was scared of being disappointed, but I wasn’t.  Love it!  Another thing I love is the fact I’m getting more and more together for my guinea pig.*  My father-in-law says the cage he’s building for us is coming along nicely and I’ll have it in 1 week, give or take.  Ideally, I’d spend that week reading some of the books I got from the library sale ($1 for 1 bag of books), but there’s a lot going on this week.

That’s enough about my week.  Queenie, show them my goal progress!


My week was obviously awesome.  I started editing MEOW on Monday and finished it Thursday.  Friday, after much debate, I decided to start to edit the last “in edits” project I had, TJ.  I figured clean the slate “for now.”  (Betas will eventually send me feedback and that means GRANDMA and MEOW will be back on the editing block.)

To stay on track I must:
Read 25 Pages * Edit 8 Pages * Lift Weights 4 Days
Visit 4 ROWers * 5 Study Breakfasts * 4 Study Lunches

As most of my writing stuff happens in the morning, I think I can manage it.  All my busy stuff this week is in the afternoon/evening times: Daughter’s school’s book fair (more books!!!), Son’s doctor’s appointment, and Daughter’s open house/meet the teacher night.  But, there could be complications, so who knows.

Can you ever have enough books?
How was your week?

*- We are getting two guinea pigs as they do best in pairs or more.
However, both won’t be mine.  One will belong to my husband.
