My last post was on April 13, and I did not realize then (it was about a book called “The Survivors Club”) that I would take so much time off. I had made a commitment to myself in August to blog daily, but I have realized that it has become more than I can handle at certain times. I need to let myself have some grace and post when I can or when I want to do so and not be so tied to this “commitment” that I miss out on other things.
What have I been up to?
Well – mostly, I have had pneumonia! I seem to be coming out of the woods on this, but - WOW! – pneumonia is the worst. Coughing is awful. If I were ever captured and tortured to get information from me, giving me something that would make me cough would definitely make me talk. I highly suggest that chicken broth become a prescription, and why don’t they just hand out a 5 day dose of prednasone (sp?) right away? I even skipped a fun weekend away because of this.
I have also been doing a crazy amount of driving for my job with testing season and court season in full swing. I head to International Falls on Tuesday – that is on the Canadian border! I do love to drive, but I am currently out of books on CD. The library is on my list of stops tomorrow.
But – the fun part of why I have not been blogging is that I have been working on a project for ParentFurther.com. They asked me to write some content for the bullying part of their website. This has been so much fun! I just wrapped up 10,000 words of content and sent it off for their approval. I am dying to hear back from them because I have no idea if it is what they want.
All of this to say to you all a few things:
1. Don’t get so set on something that you miss out on other things.
2. When you are sick, take the time you need to recover.
3. Go after your dreams. Some day, you might just get that writing gig that you have always wanted to get.
