Break Anyone?

I've been back at work for 2 whole days and I'm already exhausted! Ugh! I think it's this going to bed early and getting up early thing that's throwing me. During the summer I go to bed between 2 & 3. Now I have to be up at 6.

The website meeting went very well! I'm so excited about it. We talked about colors, designs, pages I want now and pages I can add once I sign a contract and actually have a book coming out. Since I'm focusing on my Scottish contemporaries, we decided to go with a Scottish theme. I thought about adding a suspense page, but I haven't truly worked on a suspense story in over a year and a half. Again, that is something that can be added when I sell a suspense story or when I start to shop around a suspense. For now, I'm quite happy immersing myself in my Scottish village!

Family medical drama continues with my grandfather and it hurts my heart that I can't be there. I know I'd probably go insane, but I could at least help my mom out. Even the people at his assisted living place tell my mom that there will be a crisis with him. They said a bit more to my mom, but I can't remember it all correctly so I won't try to repeat it.

I think this stuff with my grandfather is also why I'm so physically exhausted. Plus, I'm also having trouble writing. Yes, even though TCAFS is still flowing and I still love it, I find myself flipping through stupid TV shows and thinking about my grandparents. I wrote nothing yesterday. I tried to bribe myself to write today. I've got a page, but it's crap. (But hey, it's something, right?) I think I might just do some free-writing, see what comes out. Maybe then I'll be able to get back to work.

As for my little blog friend SOS, Meggie was the only one to come out of the woodwork. She gets a little credit for that, but she promised to update her blog today and it didn't happen. I must harrass her some more!

Yes, I need a break! I'm very much looking forward to the three-day weekend at the end of next week. I haven't had any real time off since March and I'm feeling it.

Good luck with the web site design!
