About that writing thing...

The master plan went out the window this week as I've been sick. Resting and recuperating were priority over writing and pretty much everything else.

Don't tell my family I said this, but it was almost like a mini-vacation. I felt bad, but not too bad to read, and I felt much worse if I tried to get up and do anything. So. for about three days I was completely justified to sit around and read. Well, not really. I still had four kids to care for, but I gave myself permission to rest way more than normal. And I gave the kids permission to watch more movies than normal. And they were allowed to completely destroy the house if they wanted as long as they left me alone and didn't fight.

As a result, Bleak House by Charles Dickens is now officially in the "read" column. It took the entire month of January (and a convenient illness) to complete but was well worth the time investment. Five stars.

I'm looking forward to getting back in the groove this week. I've got some catching up to do around the house since the kids destroyed just about every room except mine; and, I'm more than ready to get back to blogging and photo editing.

Rest is over. Time to hit the ground running!

I'm so glad you could get some rest. Funny how plans change so quickly with an unexpected sickness. Even though sometimes I think God does that to us, just to shoe us we're not in charge. Hope none of the kids got it.
