I have actually done a bit of writing the last weeks.

We are still organising our life with our little one. She is a real joy and healthy like her mom. But it is a lot of change too.
Before christmas our lifes got even more mixed up since my gandmother died at the age of 99 beginning of december and my father (it was his mother) was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer only two weeks later (diagnosing and searching had already lasted 3 or 4 weeks at that point). On top of that this form of cancer washes the calzium out of the bones so he has 2 vertebrae that have cracks and has to wear a special corset to prevent breaking. He was released a week ago after the first chemo but still has to take cortison (which screws up his bloodsugar > hell for a diabetic) and the next treatment is in a few weeks. I visit him as often as I can. On the other side of the family DH grandma is in failing health and my MIL basically moved in for a time. Our little girl is really a spirit lifter for the whole family and due to that I am busy driving aroud town visiting relatives.
Now it seems everything is calming down a bit, but it is still a lot. My parents are planning to restructure the house (an old farmhouse) to fit future needs for them and we kids are involved in the prozess.

The writing I have done is actually a song for our daughter that I thought up when changing diapers, she hates that and singing quiets her down ;) I am still working on the verses thought right now it has one finished verse one unfinished one and a refrain that needs further work. I'll post a translation when I am done with it.

Congratulations on your baby girl. I remember well how much change occurs overnight. And it's great that she's healthy, that's the best one can hope for.

Sorry to hear about the passing of your grandmother, and of your father's illness, and your DH's grandmother's failing health. That truly is a lot on your plate right now. I'll be keeping you and yours in my thoughts. And I'm glad that your daughter can bring some solace to those around her. She truly is a blessing.



Oh, and of course, I look forward to your post once you translate it. What a beautiful memory you're making.

I have been back to work for a year now after almost 2 years unemployed. Those two years were kind of strange--while I lost one of my baby brothers and my grandmother, I also had time to take care of my in-laws as they battled various illnesses and surgeries. But also in those two years, my writing output increased--I actually finished two novel-length stories and am still editing them.

But I went back to work. My daily output dropped down to a little bit a day except for once a week (Sundays, when the DH was at work) where I could write away. There is a lot of overtime involved now, so even the little bit I did daily is impossible to get to. That leaves me Sundays, and sometimes it's hard to get back onto the horse and ride because I am so tired--or something happens that I can't sit and write, like if I go to visit my family or something.

Hopefully everyone has more output than I do! The spirit is willing, but damn this flesh is weak... ;)
