Back to the Grind

That would be a cool title if I worked at a coffee shop, but I don’t. I answer phones for a living. Back to the reception desk just doesn’t quite have the same ring, though.

Wait, see what I did there?

I was on vacation last week and lots of stuff happened. I mowed our lawn. Twice. Spent some money on house stuff. Sold our farm truck (because we don’t live on a farm anymore). Planted lots of flowers. Got 75% of my family members up to date with dentist appointments.

Met my newest adorable niece:

Also took my boys for their yearly physicals and found out my toddler had been walking around on a broken leg for a week and a half. You know, the usual stuff.

Side note: Mister T got tripped over and misdiagnosed at the urgent care, but he’s healing up just fine and dandy with no complaints about the fence post he now has where his leg used to be. His parents, however, are looking forward to the day his cast (hopefully) comes off next week. The phrase “Tavin, don’t hit ____ with your cast!” (fill in the blank with “your brother,” “the cat,” “Grandma,” “the television,” etc.) has become stock in the Brockmeyer household this past week.

With all that going on, I didn’t, understandably, write as much as I would have liked during my vacation. I only netted about 2,100 words on Peace, Love and Murder. Last week’s ROW80 goal was to write daily and I scored about a 3 out of 7. Still satisfied, though, since it’s progress! I also finished up my sponsor article and was super happy with it, so that’s a bonus, too.

Adding an item to the goals this week:

Write daily.

    • Thanks so much, Denise! Kiddo’s not in much pain – or if he is, apparently thumping things (small animals, siblings, windows) makes it feel better. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂


  1. Congrats on getting some writing done in spite of a VERY busy week! This post gave me the giggles from the get-go. Your new niece is gorgeous! How wonderful.
