Live.Laugh.Love...Building a Baby.

Well, 63 days until I have a baby...I know, right?! Whoa. I'm trying to take these moments in. They're the last days I'll be able to focus on me and my writing without a baby in the mix. Part of me is a little scared. I have no doubt I'll be able to continue my writing, but it's hard to plan for what it will be like. I probably...no DEFINITELY...won't be able to write whenever I want during the day and go to bed at 9pm anymore (I know, 9pm is lame. I'm aware. What can I say? I'm part grandma). I'm guessing my writing world will consist of late nights, early mornings, and nap-time cram sessions. The good news...I work REALLY well under pressure. No joke. Actually, since I left my day job to focus on my writing, I've been less productive than I was before. Go figure...9 hour work days, and I was cranking out the pages. All day at home, and I got nothing... Call me crazy, but I think the added pressure might do me good. Sometimes I need to be in that busy mode to get my mind working. Anyway, it should be an amazing and crazy adventure. I'm looking forward to the challenge :)

I've gone off on a tangent a bit. I actually wanted to post my Halloween costume pictures. My husband and I went as "construction workers" who were building a baby. It was a lot of fun! Here they are...

  1. Ha!

    Cute idea for a Halloween "costume" (you must be a writer :)

    OK, one tip for you and the Hubster... (and we've "built" three times, so this one is *true*:

    GET. SOME. SLEEP. during the last two weeks of "the build."

    I know it sounds obvious, but you are going to be *knackered* with the new "building" so Get. Some. Sleep. :)

    PS... if you guys are the builders... are the in-laws the Building Code Inspectors? :)

    1. Haha! That's good advice. Seriously...I'm all baby crazy. Sometimes I just need to stop and sit. AND SLEEP!

  2. Clever costume! I work well with deadlines as well, which is why both NaNo and BuNo motivate me to write.

  3. Very cute costume. So adorable. Do enjoy this time. Sleep. Wow. I can remember trying to find some of that between feedings, diaper changes and just plain "I have a million questions but I don't know how to talk so I'll just cry" moments lol!!

    1. Thanks Angela! Haha...for a second I thought you meant yourself when you mentioned the "I'll just cry moments." I imagine both baby and I will have plenty of those :)
