I’m Here Again: How Do You Do It All

Hello everyone. I’m curious to find out how you all do everything?

How do you post on your blog, write your book, answer all your emails, spend time with family, do your errands and shopping, take care of your house and be the wonderful wife our husband’s want? Read more writing books because we want to read them and keep learning?

Whew that is exhausting.

Guess my eighty four years is showing, although my age never bothers me.

I am writing a book, something I have never attempted before and this time I promised myself that I would finish it. Still a very rough first draft, but it’s moving along just fine for now.

All is well in my house. I’m still driving, my husband has become my co-pilot and I like that he is there to help.

So people, tell me, how do you do it all?
Keep love and kisses in your life.


I have been working on several projects. Clearing out clutter from my office. Again. This time, however, I separated all my writing and put them into notebooks. The Memoirs are now separate from my short stories, which are separate from my ramblings.

I have this bad habit of writing something, putting it away, and not rereading or editing it and most times putting it into the wrong folders.

Now I am attempting to straighten all that out.

What will I do with them? I don’t know. But this year, I am dedicated to working on my writing. Who knows, maybe there is another book coming.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Clearing Our Clutter

Clutter: the subject on my mind these days. My house is full of clutter, all kinds of clutter, pictures, family photos, books and papers. Since I’ve been in this house for over 6 months, I’ve been through my closet at least once, the books and papers also.

So,what’s my problem? I’m in love with my books, they are my friends, I just can’t get rid of them. I keep piling them up higher to make room for more and more and more. I wonder about myself sometimes. But, this is what makes me uniquely me.

Once more I’m going through everything. I forgot to mention the clutter

of my mind. All the things I want to do and talk about doing. I can’t cram them all in, but I’m making a dent because I’m doing exactly what I want to to exactly when I want and I’m cramming in more and more learning into the clutter.

I suppose without all this clutter, there would be no me.

I wrote this the last time I moved into a new house, that’s about 10 years ago.

This time, I have removed most of the things I talked about and I am proud that I now have room for myself and whatever it is I want.

I’m also ready to tackle new things and beginning now, I’m doing it.

Keep love and kisses in your life.

Happy And Healthy New Year

Here’s to the New Year, 2010. My how fast the time flies as you get older.

This has been quite a year for us. Moving back to California, and having a new great grand daughter. And in May we will have a new great grand son.

There will be no New Year’s Resolutions, because I never keep them

. So this year, it will be projects. I’ve already finished a huge one this week, and now am working on getting my writing organized. Believe me, that is a huge job. I’ve just always stuck the papers into a folder and never sorted them into the correct categories. I have poetry, ramblings, memoirs, and short stories all mixed in together. I never edited anything I wrote. Time to do it.

I will try to begin writing every night on the blog, like I did before. Thank you all for listening and reading and for your comments.

Take good care, stay healthy and see you next year.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Make Time

Make time to do the things you really want to do. Otherwise, they will never get done. Make a list, then star the three most important things, and work on them.

Soon we will be entering the new year. I’m not making any resolutions, they are always the same and they always never get done.

So this time, I’m just making a list and doing the three top priorities. Maybe this will jump start my creativity. I’ve been out of touch, out of writing. And writing is a habit, it gets better the more you do it.

I think I’ll start my list right now.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
