Read about my life
Sigh! Here is me! Enjoy!|
The blog will contain anything and everything on my mind at the very moment I am writing.
Note: You may not like or agree with the things I write.. You have a right to your opinions as I have a right to my own. I do expect that others have a very different point of view than I do. Please feel free to leave comments.
|I am no longer keeping this blog up because of my other blogs. I have three I am running now.they are http://marvelousmom.blogspot.com, http://marvelousonesrealityround-up.blogspot.com/, and http://marvelousmeliagamingreview.blogspot.com/.
Just remember that it is the time of NaNoWriMo so thus I am rather busy doing that instead of my latter two blogs. I try and keep my Mommy Blog up and running though, so go take a look.
On that note I got to go update that before I write my 2,000 words of the day. I am at 34,000+ if you care...Right on track! I will be at 36,000+ by this evening.
|I am so ready to throw this computer I am sitting at now towards a computer repair person and tell him/her to fix it or else. My only reccommendation is do not downhload java 1.5 or whatever version the newest one is this month.
I am pretty sure that was when all my problems began.
|I am back into the Mary Kay beauty consulting business. my website is: http://marykay.com/Melia_Benjamin. Please feel free to email me at anytime at Melia_Benjamin@marykay.com with any questions you may have or any orders you want to place.

|I have been really busy since I got bck from my annual trip to my parents' house in California. My husband and I are so glad to return home as the whole week that we were there was filled with one advice after another on how we could parent better. We apparently do everything wrong.
When I got back home I was having problems with my windows xp so I basically got fed up and re-installed the whole thing. The re-installing has helped clean up the whole damn thing. I am now glad that I did it but how very frustrating at the time. My advice (god, I do hate to give any at this time) is do not re-install if you know nothing about computers: luckily I have twenty-four years experience with the damn things that have given the public more troubles than they are really worth. They are also a very bad time waster. I personally am trying to keep my son from turning into someone exactly like me.
|OK, so I had to wait until today because my husband got paid on the thirtieth and my son had scouts on Thursday and Friday my husband does a late night jazz radio show at the campus station.
I took my nine and a half year old son who is reading the series of books right now. We have seen three of them together and thus it has become a tradition for me to go with him.
This movie was not one of my favorite; I think I like the last one the best. The thing I like to see is my son's reactions though as he really gets into the movie and gets scared as the scenes get scarier. At one point he was all the way inside his hoody sweatshirt with just his eyes peekingout every once in awhile. I wonder sometimes why he even wants to go to these movies.
After that my son and I went to the store and got groceries from which he says a buy a whole lot more than Dad ever does but that is hardly the truth -- I buy different.
Anyway that was my day in a nut shell.
|I miss NaNoWriMo. I am ready for another go and then have three books ready for edit. I know I need to finish up the other two but geesh I miss the real creative process for me, which was getting into the main characters head. I am ready and willing to start again and very soon. I could really get into the habit of writing again.
I may need to put this creative energy into my scarf I am making a family member for Christmas though as it is getting rather close and I am only about half way through the scarf. I was going to try and make several scarves but dang they are taking longer than I ever thought they would or should.
So off I go into the wild knitting bedroom.
Good night and good bye.
|Yes, I am a NanoWriMo winmner which I was not sure would happen. At the beginning of the month I had a few hard days and I wanted to throw in the towel but I hung in there somehow. I then had another set back at the end because my husband got sick and had a bad sinus infection on top of acid reflux junk that was also keeping him home and in my way. But I finished. The book title is: Twenty-Four Months.
My other second was the fact that I got to go to the writing.com convention from which I wrote about by going to: "Invalid Item" .
It is now time for a bit of relaxation before I get to editting my book this year and the one last year. I need to be with my family this month and hopefully by the beginning of next year I will get back to the editting process.
|I am so very happy I got two thousand two hundred and thirty-nine words written yesterday on my NaNoWriMo piece. This meand I am about three thousand behind minimum needed wors at this time and five thousand words behind Goal word count in terms of the tracker I have I got through http://www.digitaltrouble.com/nineonetwo/NaNoWriMo-Progress-Tracker.zip on hjhangiri webpage: http://users.ev1.net/~hjahangiri/nano2002/nano2002.html. It has been great, fast and easy to track your progress that is for sure.
I figure if I write beyond the two thousand words per day I will eventually get up to par when all is said and done.
Wish me luck!
|I am not sure what a woman like me is to do. I want to learn how to divide up my time between working on NaNoWriMo, family, friends, fun, email, and my chores but how when I must get sleep in there somehow. I just simply hate saying 'NO.' I want to but I don't want to simply change my habits just because it is November.
The fact that I have two little girls that need me constantly and rely heavily on getting attention from me is hard to ignore as well. The olcer of the two, a three year old, wants me to nap with her which makes it hard for me to get things done at nap time as well because I end up napping along with her.
So what is a wife and stay at home mother to do? Please that is a retorical question only I can answer as it is me who must feel as though I am getting something out of my life.
Well I need to go make bottles before going to bed so I better go.
|Oh boy, what fun! Now the hope is that all five of us can get to Liberal, KS an hour away from our house in one piece so that we can get these damn pictures taken at 6pm.
The main one I worry about is my son who has already managed to get blue paint in his hair while flinging a paintbrush around saying that his cub scout leader told him that was the way to clean it off when you are done. Hmmm, obviously not to be done on a typical windy day in the panhandle of Oklahoma. The poor boy gets in so much mischief.
Wish us luck and peace!
|The harsh reality is that my girls are very young and when they need me I come and their needs are more important. Don;t worry though my last child has been born and as she gets older I will have more time to get my memoir written.
For now though I simply do what I can and attended to their needs.
I am also having a few issues that I must work on with my son whom I am afraid is suffering from the fact that he is feeling squeezed out of the family because of all the attention given to the girls and not him. So for now my writing has become secondary but when I can I will write bits and pieces and get the poems out when the inspiration hits. As any good poet knows a poems inspiration can only come to ome when the muse hits.
See you around and remember writing is a journey only for the few of us great people.
|Hmm, that is a big question part of which really needs to be answered soon since it starts on November 1st. I did it last year but that was while I was pregnant with my third child and thus I was a bit less busy.
The thing that stumps me is that I have not really written anything since then. I may have written a few poems but other than that my writing has been pretty dry and boring.
What can I say? The pros are at least I would be challenging myself to get something done. Another pro is the fact that I do have the option of dropping out if I feel overwhelmed or simply have no time.
The con is the time it takes away from other things. I would have to discipline myself to say no to friends who want to play online games with me and other activities that I will have no time for. The family would also have to be a little understanding that I do have a time commitment and crunch to get through the month.
Oh God, I do not know what I am going to do.
|Well then, give it up! The argument I have about Love is going nowhere in the suggestion box forum so I am not going any further on the topic of love genre as I am losing the damn love in the suggestion anyway.
There are a few people here that seem to be in the community of writers here that are bound to make my life difficult. I have had problems with them since I got back from the Convention and will probably continue to have problems with them for the rest of my life or their life here at writing.com -- the joys of online communities I guess.
So here is another suggestion for the Master and Mistress -- An ignore feature would be a very welcome addition to the community. They could probably place it as a feature in the account area and then he author can put usernames in the field and no longer have to see anything from them. Who knows.
|OK, so I was just making a suggestion in the suggestion box here there is no need to hark on everthing I say in that forum or any of the others. All it does is reiterate why I do not spend my whole time here anymore. Community sites like this although nice at times can be a fucking pain in the butt much of the time especially when you are trying to express yourself.
I am very close to deleting all my groups and forums so that I can slip into the background and hide and do what I do best which is write my own thoughts, opnions, stories, and what I love most my poetry. Many of my groups have run their course and contests are down the drain so if I slide down my rabbit hole no one would notice.
|The effort it takes to care wheher or not this community goes any further than it already has moved. It seems when I ask for something or whatnot someone is there to hark on my idea.
Oh well, what can I say I am in a bitchy mood this evrning and feel that effort is wasted.
I think I will stick to my real writing and such and leave the ideas I have to myself and incorprate them in my own life only and not care what happens here as long as the site still progresses rather than declines in what it offers.
|I am not surprised as she played the better game and Ivette screwed up in the end. She basically threw away the half million when she chose to take Maggie to the end instead of Janelle. What a dumbshit head.
The other winner last night was J.D. Fortune on the Rockstar INXS. I really think the band made a big mistake along the way. First of all they let Ty go. He was probably the best match but the wrong color, so to speak. Then, they let Jordis and Suzie go instead of Mig or J.D.. Next to Ty Suzie was probably the best match there was but she was the wrong sex.
So there you go. There will be no updates or recaps for Survivor because although I do watch it it is not my favorite show.
|Is all I can think of as thoughts and ideas run through my mind. I need a journal for every thought, hehe . I just find that the more I explore my life the more things that I can write about but nothing is related to another thought. I know it sounds crazy but that is just how it is.
Lately, I have been cleaning my house like there is no tomorrow. The thing that started it all was my Mom's visit during the united States Labor Day weekend when she called me a Packrat which I guess is so fitting. I hated the fact that it was the best word to describe my behavior.
I think I have kept everything I have collected in the last ten years. Part of the problems comes from family members asking me to keep this and that and save it for the next child and so forth. Well, I know that this third child of mine is my last even if sex must be denied which believe me is not hard in this household. There is always kids, cats, work and choirs that must be done in the way. One of our cats will ewven jump between us another will stay above my head during the wonderful Fucking act thus making it hard not to concentrate on the damn beings.
Anyway, as my Babes grows up and out of this or that it will be given away or thrown away. I know longer need old bikes and scooters for boys so they are gone. As Babes gets done with clothes they will be out the door as well. Speaking of which I wish people would stop giving me the really cute but unpractical outfits as my baby will never wear them. Frills are hard to do the everyday stuff in thus I try and dress Babes in cotton onesies and footie outfits.
Ok, so now you know why I am absent now for some well needed sleep.
|I need to write something.
I have been busy cleaning my house lately. My Mom came over Labor Day weekend and she called me a hoarder or packrat ands since then I have been trying to clean up my house. It is amazing what anothers accusations do to a person's psyche.
The thing is my Mom has always told me to save this or that and not to ever get rid of something else so I guess that has led to never getting rid of anything. Heck, even though as teenagers and very young adults we say we will never listen to our parents, we obviously listened to well.
I bet my Mom will never ask me to save something again. She has made a hoarder out of me and I am probably somewhat of a disgrace of the family, hehe!
|That is how I feel at the moment. I really need my husband to get home soon so I can go back to bed and get over this cold that I have at the moment.
I need to get over this cold by tomorrow as my mom is coming to meet her new grand-daughter as well as visit her other two grandchildren that she hardly ever gets to see.
OK, now to Big Brother stuff that I know about..Ha at the moment I know nothing more than what the show has already told you because I have not been watching the Live 24/7 Feed. Howie and James are on the chopping block at the moment and I guess I will find out more tonight.
What devestation that is! I wish that as a social worker I could get immediate training and get down to that area. I cannot leave my family at the moment though because of school having started and my infant daughter I could not leave right now.
Many of the people I see on the news just need someone to talk to but that is simply not anyone to talk to that has training to help them and show compassion and empathy. My training would allow me to do such a thing if only I felt I could leave my family and get to a Red Cross training center.
Dang it! There always seems to be something.
