I need to write and I am not feeling it. I don't know what is going on with me. I know what I want to write but sitting down and doing it is like beyond me right now. I don't know why. We are going on vacation this Saturday. I just can't wait. Maybe this is what I need. Gloversville is really not that,what is the word I am looking for...its so bad here I can't even think of a word to describe what its like living here. Oh boy.

I want to be creative. I want to seat down and write that book. But there is so much going on. My brother-in-law got arrested and we are going to court tomorrow night. Nothing will happen tomorrow. but come August his lawyer wants him to come up with $1400.00 or there abouts. He's not working. He has no money. We are going on vacation there is no money to give him. Besides we had to pay bail and that was a nice chunk of change. He has to leave. I don't want him here any more. Its just to much.

The son needs to move on too. He is supposed to move to his cousins house downstate. But he has to know how to drive. He never asks to go driving. I don't know what we are going to do with him. He will come with us when we move, I guess unless some miracle happens. Ha on that.

We need to get this house in shape too. This is the last vacation for a while. Money will now be going on the house. Fixing the bathroom floors and the kitchen floor. We need to redo our bathroom. I want to make it really nice. Get a new vanity for the main bathroom and then carpets upstairs and down. The husband started painting the dinning room when I was at my cousins in May. Its not finished yet. But I can't talk, I haven't finished the downstairs bathroom yet. Shame on me. LOL

So I was thinking that writing my story out, like I was telling it and put in the conversations later. I think the easiest way is for me to do it in first person. Maybe while we are away I will feel motivated and start writing. A new place, new people, new perspective for the story. I'm still trying to think of that word. It will come to me I am sure.

I've been feeling kind of tired, just not feeling myself. Don't know what is going on with me lately. I just don't feel like me. Not sick or anything like that just not feeling myself.

I have so much ironing to do and then to pack. Of course things will get wrinkled in the suitcase and I will have to touch them up but that is better than ironing it out, if you know what I mean.

Almost midnight, I should get to bed. But I am not feeling that tired. I hate just laying there so I think I will watch a little more TV and then sleep.

Are you from Gloversville, NY??? Oh boy, that is so exciting! I know what you're talking about. I was originally from Frankfort, NY...near Herkimer, NY which was near Gloversville...somewhat--that is, if it's the same Gloversville. Either way you look at it, it is definitely how you described. So glad to see you on Inkwell Alley! I have since moved to South Carolina. So glad our paths have crossed :)

Gloversville!!!! Oh boy! I know what you're talking about! I used to live in Frankfort, NY which is near Herkimer, NY which is near Gloversville--that is, if it's the same Gloversville. I know what you're talking about when you say it is in the middle of nowhere. I moved south 11 years ago. So glad to see you on Inkwell Alley! Talk soon. sbass

I've been to Herkimer once, I think. I don't think I know Frankfort. Here's a laugh I've lived here for 12 years and I know where Main Street is and how to get to Johnstown. I'm on the Second Ave side put me on Grand and I am lost. So sad. LOL Grew up in the Bronx but have been up here for WOW 29 years already.
Looking to head to NC in a couple of years.
