Bittersweet Weekend

This weekend I said goodbye to the board I ran with for the last two years. While we had a good run it’s now over. In some ways I was looking forward to not being responsible for the newsletter. I needed a break and happy to turn it over to the new editor. Yet, part of me will miss it. When I didn’t come home with all my folders I felt like I lost a part of myself. It’ll be all right in the end. I’m going to be too busy come August to think about putting together the newsletter. I’m sure the new editor will do a fantastic job.
Our house if finally back to normal. It took some serious time, but the DH worked hard over the weekend.
I spent over 7 hours in the car…something I don’t like to do. It did give me time to reflex on certain things and make some decisions that have lingered for too long. That's for another post though.
I also challenged myself. I told my editor that I’d have a book for her by the end of this week. ACK! You know what that means right? I have to sit my butt in the chair and write those last 5-6k words and ship that baby off. I knew if I didn’t do something drastic I’d let it sit while I do nothing. I need to finish this wip.
So if you don’t hear from before Friday, you’ll know why.
Happy Monday!


  1. Happy Monday, hon. You can do it. Especially because you no longer have Newsletter responsibilities and because your house is back in order.

  2. You did the right thing by letting someone else be responsible for the newsletter.
    As for the WIP, you can do it! You're so close.
    Best wishes for a great work week.

  4. You can totally finish your WIP! It's time to look forward.
