Do you have those times in life when everything demands to be done now?
Well that is how it has been for me the last three weeks.
I had to take a detour from my writing and I have missed it.
We have a rental property we had to get ready for new tenants. There was painting to do, cleaning, doors to be replaced, a light fixture to replace, new trim to put in, etc. My husband and my son put in many hours and I was working right alongside them.
I am pretty exhausted with all I have been doing and I feel like my word tank is empty.
When my body has a chance to rest this weekend I believe it will all come back as I sit myself down to create, at least I am hoping so.
In the midst of getting the house ready and some other major things happening with family, we got some really, really great news. My son and daughter-in-law will be blessing us with another grandchild. They have a little girl who is three, she is our only grandchild. We are excited for the addition that will arrive in November.
On Wednesday I heard from Chicken Soup about two stories I had submitted. One of my stories for their Running Book is accepted. The book will be out in July.
God knew I needed a boast in the midst of all the happenings in my life.
Life is good; spring is coming to Colorado Springs, sometime. It is snowing as I write this.
