I really was planning on revising last week. I even got through the first chapter (which I have been told is the hardest).
But then life happened.
My daughter was bit by a beloved pet...the pet died the next day. We spent that day on the phone with the pediatrician and disease control making sure everyone would survive. Plus there was a shot. I think we are through with pets for a while.
Another day was spent in the emergency room with my son, by no fault of his own. There were a few traumatic days but everything seems to be okay for now.
Things are finally settling down. I feel the urge to write, but I know that there are some things that need to come first. So many other things. But I can't seem to break the feeling.
So I am left juggling life and dreams. I believe I can achieve both, if I can find that perfect balance. But it's like walking on a tight wire.
So tell me...How do you juggle life and dreams? Do you set one or the other aside from time to time? Do you spend sleepless nights trying to achieve the dream? What do you do?
You might not see me again this week. I'm really going to push for that revision, unless I spend another week on the phone and in the rooms of medical people (whom I am so grateful for!!! They have seen so much of me, they even know me by first name).
Have a great week everyone! I hope the writing is going well.
