Moody Monday

Morning Folks,

Well, it's rainy, gray, and gloomy outside my window and yesterday I was under the weather (still not feeling completely back to my normal self, but trying to get better, and definitely not worse). One of my sisters and nephew are fighting the flu, but fortunately her fever is low. One of my nephews seems to be getting better, so that's good. A friend mine mentioned something about some strain of flu and I know someone who said they had swine flu for awhile (but it was not a bad case). And another friend of mine knows someone who has swine flu. So, tis the season for the flu, regardless of the strain. Yuck!

On a more positive note, like I said, I'm doing better. My ears are still bothering me, but hopefully they're mending. My son slept better than he has in days, so that's a blessing, as well. Neither one of us has had a fever so far, so I'm VERY glad of that.

I haven't done a lot of writing lately since I've not felt my best. I played a computer game, but mostly I didn't do much except some housework. I'm trying to catch up on the work around the house.

But I haven't forgotten about my manuscripts. On the contrary, they've been on my mind, I just have been trying to get better so I can use my best focus on them.

I've also been doing a lot of reading, which I feel is a good idea as a writer--compare writing styles, word usage, dialogue, descriptions--plus it's just plain all out fun.

I'm hoping to get back on my usual writing spree today and this week. Last week was crazy--I was in a car accident (the other driver was given a citation from the police...everyone was fine, except my back and neck were strained, but even that is getting better and one of my passengers is going to the doctor tomorrow, but she's fine, too). So I was talking to insurance people and tow truck folks most of the time last week.

I really would like this week to be calmer...easier to get writing done and do everything that needs to be done.

My birthday is coming up...but not until next week. I'm also thinking (or is that hoping?) that maybe the weather is getting cooler out--which would be great.

How are you doing? If you're a writer, how's that coming? Anything exciting happening in your world these days?

Anyway, again, I apologize for not posting yesterday, I wasn't feeling very well.

Hope every one is doing well, or if not well, on the road to things going well!

Have A Miraculous Monday!

I'm doing a bit better. Thank you for your comment and concern. It cleared up in the afternoon, that was nice. :-)

It IS tough to write when life gets crazy. A couple of weeks ago my car went crazy and I had to have it towed to the shop. That morning was so filled with stress and anxiety, no way could I even THINK about writing. I got nothing done that day.

Wow. I'm so sorry you've been feeling bad and I'm sorry about the car accident! You've been really going through it. I hope this week is extra blessed for you. Happy Early Birthday!

Sorry about your car. Things like that are a pain.
