Wow. Can you believe it’s October? This year has just flown by. This is my favorite month. I love Fall, and the wild weather we have. And the weather has been in full cooperation here in Chicago. It’s been chilly, stormy, and that wild wind I simply adore. We had a beautiful thunderstorm last night. I watched lightining dance along the clouds reflected in the lake and listen to the wind howl through the buildings. Most of the Halloween decorations are out too. Halloween is our favorite holiday. This is normally when I’m most creative as well, so I look forward to having a very productive writing month. I think the Fall wind blows my muse around more than normal. Things come, things flow, and I don’t bang my head up against the wall near as much.
This week was not a productive week to say the least. We wound up in the ER Monday night because The Hubby was having some intense GI pain. It turned out to be gastritis, but they kept him overnight for observation to be on the safe side. He was released Tuesday afternoon, and I crashed Wednesday. So tired. My body just did not like all the adrenaline and stress that pumped through it, and it’s having a bit of time recovering and getting back to normal. Of course the first thing it knocked out were what little circadian rythms I have, so my sleeping has been all over the place (figuratively and literally). I’m hoping to get that straightened out this weekend. I’m going to get back in my schedule which means grocery shopping and cleaning today. I’m very tempted to just write, but the house is a mess. How does that happen when your not home for a day and a half? But it is a mess. And I’ve learned this year that I just don’t operate well when the house is messy. And routine is very important in getting the body back to it’s own schedule. So cleaning and shopping it is. I plan to write and work on the book proposal tomorrow.
Make sure you go see what the Company Girls from Home Sanctuary are up too.

LOL! I believe all your gremlins are at MY house! Ever notice how they grow during the week? And then if you have to be at a book signing or something on the weekend, the gremlins chortle and dance and stay in your way the next week, too. Naughty gremlins!
I just took the time to check who has been on my site, Shawna, and clicked on yours. I like what I see so far. I want to read more, but have to get my beauty sleep first.
Are you writing a book? I notice you mention a proposal.
Thanks for stopping Waneta! And yes I have noticed how those things grow. It’s disgusting. 🙂
I don’t know how the gremlins do it Donna, but they know how to get around. Now if I could just figure out how to contact the house gnomes Harry Dresden uses…..
I love wild storms too Melissa. I grew up in Oklahoma where some wild weather blows through.
It is amazing how stressful it gets when The Hubby is sick Marie. I’m still getting used to it. We’ve been married 3 years. I’m still getting used worrying this much about another person.
Thanks for stopping by everyone, and thank you for your prayers and well wishes.
I find it really stressful when hubby is under the weather….it threatens my security I guess. I hope everyone’s feeling better soon!
“…the house is a mess. How does that happen when your not home for a day and a half?”
WOW! how did those gremlins that come and mess up MY house after a few hours out and about make it ALL the way to your house while you were at the hospital. Something must be done about their infestation :0).
Sorry about the hubby and glad he is ok. Hope this week will be uneventful! I am visiting viz Home Sanctuary:0)…
I LOVE wild wind storms! I grew up on Whidbey Island, where there were a lot of them. Last night we had high winds where I live now and I opened up my bedroom windows to listen to the wind as I fell asleep. It’s not the same living in the city because you hear the cars too, but it will do.
I totally understand about the difficulties of not functioning well when the house is a mess. I’ve been trying to deep clean my house before winter and flu bugs settle in. It’s been a process!
Have a great week!
Thank you for stopping by everyone. The Hubby and I doing much better and just about back to our normal selves. Thank you so much for your prayers.
I really enjoy fall storms, too. I just love Fall!!! Praying for your hubby and you, too. It is such a difficult thing when sleep rhythms get off kilter!!! Hoping you can get back on track and enjoy some baking this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you and your hubby are feeling better now. I don’t operate among a mess either. And it is strange how things get messier when you’re not home. Mondays I have to put the house back together. Hope you will have a more relaxing weekend.
The storm must have been fun to watch. We had a super cool storm that skirted us, then we watched the back side of it just as the sun was going down. it created a surreal sight. I wished we weren’t in the car going the opposite direction, because we didnt get to enjoy it for long.
I’m glad your husband got released…glad it was nothing ‘worse” although gastritis is probably not very nice to have.
Good luck with your writing and organizing!
I agree, September flew by! I can ‘t believe that it is already October. The holidays are creeping up way too fast!!
I hope you are successful on getting back on track. I know how difficult that can be.
Dropped by from Home Sanctuary.
Have a blessed weekend!
