Good morning, peppermint fans and candy lovers everywhere! I hope everyone had a great weekend and all the mothers out there were blessed with extra love from their families. Mom and I celebrated Mother’s Day at her house by watching back-to-back TV movies.
Yep, I’m still here. Good news is, she’s well enough again that I can go home either today or tomorrow, hopefully to stay awhile. The doctor said she didn’t have pneumonia, and whatever it was she did have seems to be going away now. It’s awful to be hit with multiple problems at once, and all I can do is help her conquer them one at a time. I’m just praising the Lord they are all things that can be conquered and nothing life-threatening.
MSB says the wall is fixed at the house, so once I do get home, I’m going to have an insufferable mess to clean up. I can’t begin to describe how deep the dread runs for that. I’ve been saying for months now that I want a maid. Maybe the time to hire one is the minute I get home. My energy level is at an all-time low for someone who isn’t sick, and my desire to get back to my manuscript is at an all-time high. I miss my imaginary friends and don’t want another minute to go by without adding to their story.
I was able to work at Mom’s while she napped during the day, but not on my own WIP. I finished two of my three editing jobs. Why I can concentrate on those and not my writing unless I’m at home, is anyone’s guess. But once I’m home again, and my house is put back to normal, and my cats have gotten over their clinginess, I should be able to work in peace for about three weeks before returning to Mom’s for our monthly visit. Please, God.
Anyway, there’s the scoop. By Wednesday, I’ll be back on my regular schedule, and maybe my posts will be more useful and entertaining. Meanwhile, keep us in your prayers!
