A couple of things have made me decide it is time for a blog break.
I'm deeply tired for one. Between worrying about various things, the damn election in Canada and the A to Zed, I need to sleep more. Or rest more.
I'm sad - I watched the crazy election last night and the good thing is that NDP formed the opposition government for the first time ever. Down side - the Harperatives gained their first majority. Ughh. And I'm sad because I can't phone my dad up and get into a real fun argument with him about the election. Something I would've done as a matter of course, this morning. He would have been apopletic at both outcomes - not happy with the NDP - hating Harper but wanting the Conservatives to get a majority - ah well. A discussion I can only have in my head.
I'm discouraged - I received a very difficult to take rejection yesterday from a contest I had high hopes for. Usually, with a rejection, I suffer for an hour or two, or an evening, but this was different in many ways. I'm going to spare you my whinging but it has taken a chunk out of my confidence. I know, even in the midst of this, that I will get back on my writing horse but I don't think my recovery includes being cheerful on my blog.
So, not sure how long -probably a week, maybe two. Later...
