Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Alright, alright... I know everyone is sick of hearing me talk about the move, but it's almost over, I promise! At least in a few days I'll be able to post pictures of the ride down to Florida!
Speaking of the drive down to Florida, I do want to make a disclaimer now that posts might look a little funny while I'm on the road. I'll have limited time to post because I'll actually be driving most of the time, but I will do my best to post something fun each day of the trip. When we went down over Spring Break, I was just hanging out in the back of the RV with all the time in the world. This week, I'll have to be alert and paying attention at all times because I'll be driving my own car down.
***Before I continue with my post, I'd like to remind everyone that I'd appreciate any 'likes' for my Facebook author page. I'm sure that by the end of my posts, people probably stop reading, so you don't see the reminders that I put there. But please read the end of my post, and I'd appreciate it if you could help me reach my goal of 42 more 'likes' in the next two weeks!***
I feel like over the past few nights, I've written that we're done packing numerous times. Yet each time we move from room to room, we find even more that hadn't been packed up yet. Our storage pods are being picked up sometime tomorrow, and we still have to finish packing up the food in the pantry and the little television that we took into the living room. We all have our own little bags packed with clothes, medicines, and miscellaneous items that we'll need while we wait for the storage pods to be delivered. The only thing that's left to do is put that stuff in the cars and get going.
Tomorrow is going to be a day strictly devoted to cleaning. I hate cleaning almost as much as I hate the manual labor that I've been a part of with moving all of these boxes! I'm so lazy, it's not even funny, but I feel like I've really been doing a lot over the past few days. But wow, my sister has been showing everyone up! That girl can lift, like, double her body weight, never complains, and just keeps chugging along like nobody's business. I'm in awe of her, and I don't know what we all would have done without her. And we definitely couldn't have finished packing in time without the help of our very good family friends. My mom's best friend, her husband, and her son (my best friend) have been over here every day helping us move things, and they've been so amazing. I don't think we can even begin to thank them enough. I don't know what we're going to do without these people in Florida. I really don't... we're going to miss them all so much!
I only have a little over two more weeks to reach my goal of 150 likes on my Facebook author page by the time I'm celebrating a year of blogging on July 29th. I still need 42 people to hit that "like" button and I would be really grateful to everyone if you could like and share my page. It's as simple as clicking the two buttons at the top right of any blog page, so it only takes a few seconds of your time! As I've mentioned before, when I reach 150 likes, I will share information about the novel that I've been working on, so I'm really excited to hit that milestone!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
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.
