Because I Can
Today is the day that a new Master Class assignment should be going up, but you know what? Life has been….busy. My health has been….spotty to say the least and I am once again under the weather just 3 weeks after my last one. I’m really getting rather tired of not feeling well and having a head full of fog that keeps me from doing what I really want to….write.
I’m a mom of four–three teenagers and a kindergartner. These days are filled with activities, and all the sudden now that mom has a car of her own again, somehow I became a taxi once more. On top of that, there’s new evaluations being done for my daughter, so we can make sure we are helping her in the areas she needs them and not dismissing something as “ADHD.” There’s enough drama surrounding me of late that I could put on my own production.
Needless to say, I’m exhausted. I’ve written a whole 1700 words of the 35,000 I wanted to add to The Elven Games (already at a nice 25K) for Camp NaNo, and yes, I’m beating myself up about that too. It shouldn’t be this hard to carve out 30 minutes to sprint out 1,000 words through the course of one day.
It is, though. So, Master Class will return soon, and my blog will get busy again, but right now, I need to take some time to focus on me because I don’t. I get so busy taking care of everyone else, including the voices in my head, that I forget to take care of me.
I hope that y’all will still be around next week.
You do know that if you get to missing me too much you can always click on those tabs up there, right? There’s a bunch of stories, links to some of my poetry, and you can always buy my books, too. Just click on the cover to the right and it will take you to my Amazon page where all my published words are showcased.
I know that I miss you, but I’ll be reading what you post. It’s easier to do that when I have less concerns of my own. And the guilt I have for not posting every day? Yeah, it’s bad. I won’t be gone long though, and I might post here and there as I feel up to it. I just felt I owed an explanation.
Til next time,
