Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
All day long I kept feeling like it was the end of the week, as though the kids would all be home tomorrow from school and we'd relax for the weekend. Sadly, it was only Wednesday.
Normally, my work days are lumped together in the middle of the week, so I have a few days of work and then a few days off. This past week, however, I had picked up extra shifts and it really messed with my head. I worked every other day (and then back to back Monday/Tuesday) for the past week, and on my days off I had errands to take care of and kept busy. Today, I was so exhausted that I literally laid around on the couch all day taking full advantage of my day off. So to me, it really felt like a Friday and it was a shock each and every time that I realized it was actually the middle of the week.
Part of me felt so lazy today, while part of me felt like I needed a day to just chill. And hey, I was really impressed with myself that I didn't just go back to bed after all of the kids went to school... believe me, when my alarm went off this morning, going back to bed was the very first thought that I had. Plus, I had some television shows to catch up on, so being a little lazy today helped me get through some of that at least.
I guess I'm also just feeling like I'm in limbo right now with the book thing, so I don't know what to do with myself anymore. I'm just waiting to see if I hear back from a literary agent, but I probably won't hear back for at least 5 more weeks. Yes, I started writing another book, but I'm trying to hold back just a tad and not completely throw myself into it just yet, because I'm still a little drained from finishing the first one. I'm kind of giving myself an excuse to relax for a little bit, but who knows how long that will last...
Unfortunately, my laziness ends tomorrow though, because while I'm not scheduled for work, I do have a lot of errands to take care of that I had postponed today. I've been squeezing out the last few drops of hair conditioner for quite a while now... I think it's time to actually go to the store and buy more. Plus, we might be going to our cousin's birthday party over the weekend, and if we actually are going, then I want to bake cupcakes that my little sisters can eat while we're there. I'm excited for the opportunity to bake, but on a day when I just want to sleep, I'm not quite ready to stand there and actually put in the effort. I guess we'll just see how I feel tomorrow and Friday in order to determine if I really do bake.
In the meantime, I think I'm tired enough that I'm not even going to play games on my tablet before falling asleep. That's quite an accomplishment! Good night!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
