Good news!!! The Porch Swing is now out in iTunes, Kobo, and Kindle and should be live in paperback anytime soon!!!
I'm still listening and approving chapters for Into the Darkness audio, which I am hopeful to finish listening to tomorrow so it can go live this week!!!
The Cheyenne Bride is four years old today!!!
So much to start off the new week with :) My work schedule is all evenings this week, with the exception of today, so am looking forward to having a few productive writing days before work each day. I have to start preparing for NaNoWriMo ya know :) So I figure a few daily sprints should do the trick, hopefully :)
I had a wonderful weekend even though my work schedule was very early mornings. It helped me get refreshed for the week ahead. Nothing like waking up on a Monday morning ready to take on the world :) The nights here are starting to get cooler, and even though I have not yet closed all the windows in the house, it has made for the most perfect sleeping weather :) In turn means I've actually felt well rested when I awake so that is a big plus!!!
There is nothing more comforting than slipping under the comforter and sliding into the warmth of a bed. For the first time in quite awhile I am not plagued with being too hot to sleep good. (Yes, since all of this has begun, this is the first time in years I've not had to throw the blankets off even in the winter months due to those horrible night sweats that come with age).
For the first time in a long while I finally feel somewhat balanced. Unless you've been there you have no idea how good this feels. Releasing myself from the responsibility of being the 'fixer' the 'peacemaker' has given me such a freeing feeling within. Focusing on doing me, just understanding what I need to do and doing it, has helped in more ways than I ever imagined it would.
And guess what... the world did not stop because I wasn't there to 'fix' it. It moved on just as I have.
This week I have so many plans to accomplish. If I don't get them all done (because I tend to overload myself), I know its okay that the plans will still be there another day. The object is to have goals and work toward those goals. So just because they aren't completed in one day doesn't mean I should throw in the towel, but look upon them as a work in progress.
I'm responsible for me. I can watch from the sidelines the chaos of others without having to be involved. This is my motto and one I chose to live by :)
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
