I'm in a sort of limbo as I await my edited manuscript. What will I find? I know the person who is doing it says he marks up manuscripts heavily so not to be concerned. After all that is what I want - don't I? Then I will be forced to carve out some time to work on making the changes. How will that work? I've never had a job that engaged me on so many levels - my time - more than full-time, energy (working with all ages of kids and adults) heart (so much trauma) and soul (children! parents!) So it won't be at work that I take time. I think there will be nothing for it but to get up each morning by five and get an hour in before I start to get ready for work. I leave the house at 7:30 for 8 A.M. and when I get home I am bushed. I'm often in the tub by nine and bed by nine-thirty. I never liked writing at night unless I had a heavy-duty deadline and even then in the last few years I simply couldn`t do it. On the weekends I`ll be able to do a bit more but not a lot more. Weekends are now laundry, chores, shopping for groceries, housecleaning and a tiny bit of entertaining. Oh and cooking. Cooking I love even if I have to and I never have to. I have a fella who also loves to cook.
So all that is rumbling around in my brain pan.
And I`ll be in limbo until I know how it will pan out!
Meanwhile the bay is finally starting to break-up - yay! Soon we`ll be going to the Ice to Water Dance. Double yay! And my buddy Deb is flying in on Saturday and we`ll hang out for four glorious days! Triple yay!
This photo is of the bay before it got all friz up.
