Here I thought January would be quiet since I didn't have to teach gymnastics at all. Just the opposite. I had one week of working only Wednesday right after we got back from Mexico. But the other woman who nannies the kids I watch Wednesdays had to go out of town to visit her sick father. So I picked up her days. Which meant one week I work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Then the following week I worked Tuesday and Wednesday. Yes I know it's really not that much more, but I was quite looking forward to getting things done around the house during that time off from gymnastics.
Something exciting did happen that crazy week of nannying a ton. Inspiration finally stuck again after at least a year of being absent. While watching a Barbie Princess movie with the little girl I watch I got an idea for a book. So I began scribbling out an outline and it came very easily. The next day I actually started to write. I was so surprised by how excited I was to keep going. I hadn't been actively writing in so long that I had forgotten the feeling of not wanting to stop because you just wanted to get to the next part of the story. I'm just praying this inspiration and drive to write keeps with me. I'm great at starting books, but I can't tell you how many I've lost drive on and let fall to the wayside.
I'm going to make a point to blog everyday this week except Wednesday. Nick has drill this weekend so that should make it easier since I'll have all weekend alone. Here's to trying!
