welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

a housewife's work is never done

in honor of National Novel Writing Month, i thought i would post a series of totally unrelated snippets from my free writing notebook from 2005... sounds like a great reason to post.

ok, actually, i was looking through my freewriting notebook from 2005 and found some entries that i wanted to share. this was before i ever wrote a single word of Eldala. i didn't know i was a writer, but from my full notebook, it's obvious i had something inside waiting to get out.

so here's the first one...

a housewife's work is never done...

on my way to bed, i trip over the ps2 controller and clunk it down onto the stereo/tv cabinet. the piano bench blocks my path to the bedroom. i push it in, as i do almost every night. i glance at the living room carpet. is there a carpet in there? didn't they just pick up in there last night? i sigh - part of me wants to take care of it, but my pillow is calling. i'll deal with it tomorrow.
