Okay, so I am the worst blogger ever, but I have reasons–lame ass reasons–but reasons never the less. Between two jobs, a problem child (one of the tenants in the building I manage), trying to finish my present manuscript, and a serious bout of insomnia I had my hands full. I know part of my problem was not taking my vitamins. I’m anemic and have been since I was a child. I know this and yet stop taking the iron rich vitamins I need, usually due to lack of money. When I say I’m on a tight budget I’m not kidding. If it were any tighter I would be cut in half.
Any who…I’ve started getting shit back under control, not that it’s been easy. It hasn’t, but I know there are folks out there who have worse problems than I do. My biggest issue is taking care of myself. I spend way too much of my time neglecting myself in favor of supporting the people I care about and internalizing my own problems. Eventually something has to give. It’s usually me.
Now that I am back on track or at the least balanced on the edge of the track things are looking up. So, the bitch is back! LOL
My writing is going better after a temporary hiatus (little bastard muses decided to take a mini-vacation without permission). I’ve been back on my vitamins for a few days, but already feel the changes, I’ve slept better the past couple of nights, and I’m looking forward to the wayward child leaving at the end of the month. Anyone who thinks being an apartment manager is easy money is a damn fool. After six years of doing it I have to say no it’s not easy, but it is very rewarding and it definitely has a learning curve.
For a writer who has struggled everyday for the past 10 months with having to start from the beginning again having this job has introduced me to so many interesting people. It has also given me insight to the human condition; how far people can fall and how desperate they can become to get what they want.
Hopefully this will be (after a few false starts) a new beginning.
Until Later & Blessed Be
