Last week was Spring Break for me: a time to relax, get things done, and write. Not sure I did 'enough' of any of my three categories. Let's see. I did relax on Thursday night, Friday, and all of Saturday. Why? Well, I had surgury on Thursday morning. Make that, I almost had surgury on Thursday morning. During an out-patient 45 minute surgury, I had a reaction to a medication twenty minutes in and wound up spending between four and five hours in the emergency room getting introduced to morphine (No more pain, and hey, I can fly) and getting a cat scan (research for next book?). Needless to say, I slept a lot for the next few days. As for getting things done. Let's see. I did go to work on Monday to catch up. Didn't quite catch up. Brought work home and finished it last night at about 10 p.m. I would have finished it about five, but spent the evening in the emergency room with my son because - being three - he swallowed something he shouldn't. I did tally my writing for last week. A page and a half. But, since I'm not on contract, writing was not a priority.
There were some positives last week. I had two full days, just me and Mikey. We went and visited my aunt, we went for walks, we played. I'm always amazed that I can fill a day with three-year-old adventures. I read the biography of Gunther Gebel-Williams. My next book has an animal trainer in it so I'm really hitting the research.
The Fab Four, those Craftie Ladies who had LIS's out this month, did a contest, and I'm thrilled thrilled thrilled with the response. We'll be posting the winner either today or tomorrow.
Speaking of which, I hear the three year old talking to himself :) It's the best sound in the world.
