M. Update

Well, life has been just as crazy as ever. Amy's been plugging away at the books and is doing well on her studies to become a nurse. My new, old, job has slowed down from the craziness that super storm sandy brought... For now.

Between dance practice, wrestling practice, and matches our time has been filled in.

Recently I allowed myself to become obsessed with reading and finishing Game of Thrones - the first book of the Fire and Ice series by George R.R. Martin, which I absolutely loved. But, even my reading has been slow.

Which brings me to writing. Amy and I have been working on the old stuff, slowly, and are now talking about turning and old idea into a trilogy.

Amy suggested that before we think to even query or publish the first book, we should finish the last book. They are going to be intertwined and maybe we are going to want to add to the first or second as we write the third.

Have any of you ever tried this?

I hope everyone has been well. As always, sorry for not posting more often.

A. OR

Today I get to observe in the OR. I am super excited and nervous at the same time. I learned that as an LPN you can work in the OR as a scrub nurse. This really excites me and I think I would love it, however I need to see how I can handle the sight of surgery today. Hopefully all will go well and I won't pass out!

M. New Tradition

It's that time of year again. The holidays. There isn't much I don't like about this time of year. Mostly I love the traditions that seem to grow every year.

Our newest tradition is Fred, the elf on the shelf. Every night he goes from one place in the house to the other, watching over the family and reporting back to Santa. Recently though, he has been found hanging with a Barbie doll and last night he must have gotten completely out of hand at a party. I am starting think we may need to report his recent behavior back to Santa.

Either that or keep posting his photos. Happy holidays everyone I hope you are having a great holiday season.

A. Nursing School

I am still loving school and have really learned a lot. I have started clinicals and am working with patients 3 days a week. I was really nervous at first but not so much anymore. After this week I will be finished my secound out five terms, and as of this moment I am holding an A average.

For me writing has been put on hold. Mike has done a little, but since out home was struck by Sandy he has been working like crazy. We were very lucky and sustained no damage or loss unlike so many of our neighboring towns.

Cape May

Our home is under attack, yet again. As I sit in our living room and listen to the wind batter out house, I wonder, is everything going to be okay this time?

Honestly, this is crazy.

Amy, the kids, our friends from Wildwood, and I are all huddled around the TV. We watching, waiting and living the largest storm that I can remember. Of course. We are watching for now, as the lights flicker and the electric threatens to go out.

For all those on the east coast, be safe. And for all others, we will let you know when the storm is done and how it has inspired our next manuscript.

M. Interviewing

Hey everyone, it has been a while, but I wanted to check in and see how everyone has been.  Lately, writing has taken a back seat to work, school, and the kids, but we are still slowly working on it.

Even though writing hasn't been the priority, it doesn't mean that we've stopped.  Actually, just the other day I was given a chance to do an interview for a local paper.  It was a fun story about a man and his wife that have been married for 50 years.

They were a great couple and the story was exciting to write.  It was the first time I've ever written an interview and probably won't be my last.  I just can't wait until it comes out, but I think it won't be published until May.

I guess it getting published in May is much better then not at all.

Hoping all has been well with everyone.  I will be checking back in soon.
