If I hear, "Honey, guess what..." one more time I'll...

I'm over halfway done with my story I'm planning to submit to Dreamspinner on Monday. I couldn't work on it yesterday because I had to go out of town, so today I've been trying to get as much done as possible.

One thing I've noticed is that every time I start on something; whether it's writing, reading, cooking or husband thinks he needs to interrupt me a hundred times. He's been changing the oil in our vehicles today, and I bet he's come in an interrupted me twenty times in the past hour. The funny thing about it is I bet if I were just sitting here and watching television he would be leaving me alone. Both my sister and my mother say their husbands do that to them too. Ashley even said my niece will be playing off to herself, but when Ashley gets on the phone, that's when Snow White decides she wants her to play with her, or she needs something.

Does that happen with y'all too? Let me be busy and Chris is all over me. Let me be bored to death and he has his own thing to do. Since I've started writing on this blog he has interrupted me 3 times already! Make that 4. He literally just came in here to tell me he was putting air in the car's tire. LMAO! It's getting to the point where it's almost getting comical. What am I going to do with such a loveable pest!!

It's finally warming up here. Yesterday it never got hotter than 14 degrees here. That's unusual for Arkansas. It's nice to be at a balmy 27 degrees now. o_o

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Happy reading!


  1. Another nice pic. I get, "what are you doing?" and "you're always ignoring me".lol

  2. LOL! Shawn! Like your Prince doesn't know you're writing when you are at the computer!
    YAY! I'm glad I'm not alone!
    I swear since I wrote this post he's come in another 5 times. It's gotten to the point where every time he comes in I start to laugh. He asked me a minute ago what I would do without him since he makes my life interesting. LMAO

  3. LOL, I know what you mean. If it's not my hubby going "Honey, what are you doing?" it's my kids calling out "Mom, have you seen..."

    It never fails the more I'm into whatever I'm doing the more they need help.

    Good luck with your deadline. And although we're not as cold as Arkansas it will be around 21 F tonight in North Florida. That is way too cold for me!!

  4. WOW, Lily! That is cold for Florida, isn't it? I always think of Florida being sunny and warm!
    Bundle up tonight!

    I love how men feel like they have to ask what we are doing when it's very obvious that we are doing whatever we doing at the time. LOL!

    I used to ask my Mom the same question your kids ask you! LOL! Mom's always know where everything is!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement! I really appreciate it:)

  5. Oh, I know the feeling, Andi! LOL. Hubby always wants to chitty chat right at that moment when I get into the groove of a scene. He could be sitting at his computer for hours, playing his games (with his headphones on - best xmas gift ever!), and as soon as I really get into writing, he wants to chat. And the kidlet...I don't even attempt to write when she's up and about in the house.

  6. My significant other is my cat, and she gets very demanding when I talk on the phone.

    My father never wants to talk to my mom until she's trying to read or take a nap. I've always wondered why she didn't throw a book at him.

    One of my friends swears her kids are never hungry until her behind hits the sofa, and she's right! I've witnessed it. ?Those kids have some kind of special sixth sense. The can be in another room, and as soon as their mom sits they start calling for something.

    You'll meet your deadline; I have faith in you!

  7. LOL, Eyre!
    I think kids, husbands and pets need to somehow have our undivided attention don't they? It's okay if they are busy, but once we are doing something we enjoy, it drives them crazy.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement, Eyre:) I'm getting there, but it's been a long process thanks to you know who! LOL!

  8. The same thing happens to me. I'll be doing something (and you may be surprised to know I write) and Milo will look at me and say, "You know what I'd like?" and then expect me to get up and get whatever it is. Very annoying.

  9. I hope to have y'all's problems someday. Matt and I plan our time together, so we don't have that problem yet. One can dream!

    Good Luck on your book, Andi! I know it will be terrific! I can't wait to read it.

    Ivan I didn't know you wrote. Do you have anything published?????

  10. No, I doubt I will ever be. I don't submit or anything/

  11. LMAO! Welcome to my world!

    Ivan, you should give it a try sometime!

  12. LOL! Boy do I know how you feel. I also get the admittedly lengthy "your mom doesn't want to be part of the family right now", the tried and true "can I have the computer now?", and the random crossword puzzle question shouted at me from the other room...which are hard for me to ignore. (hmm, what WAS that actress' first name? A ten letter word meaning quickly?)

    And that's just the hub. Kids..not going there.

    Did you get your submission done and in??
