I love to write....but I hate the editing

Here it is 3:00 AM, and I am wide awake.  I had 67 ounces of water this afternoon, and Kindle does not make it as easy as it sounds too self publish on their website.  I would not trade IngramSpark for Kindle Direct Publishing EVER!  This error for my cover file size keeps coming up, and it’s the same pdf I used for IngramSpark.  I did get the eBook loaded, but there are still issues between my file and the KDP.  This brings another thought to mind.  Make sure to check anything you order from Amazon because the tiny paper towel rolls they sent me could never compare to the Dollar General!  It is not a conspiracy theory.  I have even compared prices versus volume at Walmart and Sams club only to find out that Sams club is a rip-off.

Ok, enough of my rant.  How are you doing?  I sure miss my TikTok family, but I will be back doing videos soon.  I ended up changing the Dpi of the picture, and I had to use Kindles cover creator.  I like the new cover...wonder how it will look when it gets here?

My ribs are hurting, so I am going to bed if I can.  Sleep does not come easy to me anymore.

Here is a picture of the chocolate shark I told you about earlier.  The shark was pretty cool, and Jackson laughed as he chased his momma with his shark.  The only problem was he was taking big bites out, and then our English Bull Dog wanted a bite.  HAHAHA, good times!

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo

My Reality

TennCare called today and requested a new PAE, and it got me to thinking about my daily needs. On social media, I tend to be very positive and encouraging or funny because I know how depressing being disabled can be, especially during the quarantine. I wonder if people see my social media and get the wrong impression of my reality?  Do they know that I published my autobiography and assume that I make money from book sales?  Do they see the videos I post, and assume that I don’t need help with everyday life? The cold hard truth is I need help every day with everything I do! I have grown used to people assuming things because I am capable of putting on a smile at a moment's notice.  As a trauma survivor, the ability to put on a fake smile becomes apart of your personality.  As a mother who had to fight to keep her daughter, I learned to shut my mouth and obey the system. I want to use this blog to make it clear that I need help with the necessary daily tasks.  I forget to ea
