I am breathing easier. I'm rested. I am back in the land of the living. And I'm so incredibly glad. August used to be my favorite month, but now...not so much. I understand the need for overtime at my job in August, but that doesn't mean I like it. I really tried not to complain too much, but found myself looking for my cranky pants and slipping them on with ease.
I know my family is glad to have me back. They will enjoy a cleaner house and now I can cook some real meals. We can all sit together at the dinner table, which is one of my favorite times of the day. I love the sharing and the laughter that only comes over a shared meal.
I've missed my online friends and feel out of the loop, but I have to admit that there was some relief in knowing I really did not have the time to check on the blogs I follow. I know I put it on myself, but still, I feel guilty for not stopping by and leaving comments on everone's blog. I wish I had a good balance, because now that I am back at work, I need to manage my time so that I have time to work on the rewrites in my book.
I also want time to begin to flesh out the ideas for my next book. I have several ideas running through my mind and I am praying to see what God wants from me. I think He wants a contemporary. How strange, since I love to read historical. :)
Here's to a new day. A new beginning. A fresh start. Happy Monday!
