While I haven’t yet really gotten into any rhythm with the novella, or my writing, I’m pushing on anyways. Jack has discovered several problems and I’m taking him off to a bar to mull for awhile – he appears to have discovered what he thinks is the answer to his question already and needs to have a serious think about what steps Β he wants to take next.

I actually find myself really liking Jack, despite his actions. I guess that’s a good thing seeing as I’m stuck with him for at least another 18,000 words! Some thoughts have popped up which will come into play later in the story, in regards to Eve, though it still doesn’t tell me where this is all heading. Chaos and destruction? Maybe, but I have a feeling it’s going to be okay.

Oh, and that thought just led me to another thought, oh man… maybe Eve isn’t what she seems (or what I thought she might be) after all! Boy oh boy, this could get really interesting. I’ll let you know later on, but I can’t let the thoughts loose or who knows what might happen.

In other news, I’m sleeping like crap. Man, if it’s not one child it’s the other, or sometimes both of them. Lauren seems to think that 4am/430am is a good time to wake up and be tired and grizzly yet not be able to settle back to sleep, the last few mornings have seen me awake from then and then finally able to get her to go back to sleep around 630, which results in a short sharp sleep for me and makes me even grumpier than I would have been had I just stayed awake (I think). That said, this mornings did manage to expel the painful eye piercing headache I had. Mostly.

Ivy has been waking for apparently no reason at all and muttering to herself, which wakes me up. I strain my ears to try and figure out what she is saying but when I get up, she appears to be sleeping. Of course, her sleep is also being interrupted by Lauren’s wakeful periods and my general grumpiness about that 2 hour stint of unhappiness.

And if it’s not those two, its the other one, pressing against my bladder and forcing me from my bed – which in turn can lead to either of the other two waking up because no-one but Hubby seems to be sleeping deeply these days. He can sleep through just about everything.

Anyways, enough complaints from me! I’ll have another coffee and keep plugging along.

  1. I had to smile about your hubby sleeping so well…

    When we lived in the UK, we owned several cars over the years because my hubby loves cars, loves owning cars that invariably break down, so he has to get another car. A friend of mine asked me if that was a sticking point with us, and I told her as long as he kept bringing home an adequate paycheck, I didn’t care how many different cars we went through.

    Well, that and as long as I wasn’t stranded anywhere… πŸ™‚

    Hoping for good sleep for ALL, and plentiful words too!

    1. Thanks Anna πŸ™‚
      lol about the cars – Hubby is only just getting into them, but I don’t think he’ll be nearly as bad as any of my exes were thankfully!

  2. Your novella sounds intriguing. Coffee is fantastic stuff, glad to hear it gives you the stamina to keep plugging away when you’re short on sleep. I’m pretty dependent on the stuff myself πŸ™‚ I hope you get some nights of good, long sleep in the days ahead.

    1. Thanks Debbie πŸ™‚
      I adore coffee, but am sticking to about one a day at the moment (two if I get really desperate! lol) I was thinking today that I can’t actually foresee a day when I don’t feel tired, maybe in a couple years time when Lauren and the new baby are both sleeping through the night? lol I can hope!
