#SoCS – Marching

40 Comments

I hate being sick. Sure, it’s not as bad as it is just before Christmas when you’ve got so much running around to do, but it’s bad enough even now. I’m having a hard time thinking. I have no energy. It’s like my sinuses are pushing on both my logic/how to do stuff part of my brain and my get-up-and-go part. Who knew I had an off switch? I hope my sinuses remember to turn it back on when I’m better.

Meanwhile I march myself through life, running on sheer responsibility. And even that’s running thin at the moment. Yet somehow I got a couple of bits of good news today.

I won a contest for a new book that came out; “Like Clockwork” by Ali Abbas. Here it is here: https://www.amazon.com/Like-Clockwork-Ali-Abbas/dp/0998498327/

The contest gave me a pdf copy of another of the author’s books, a $10 gift certificate from Amazon, and a gorgeous pocket watch. I’ll take a picture when I get it and post it. The book looks really good too.

On top of that, I signed my first contract to edit a novel. My first real job in over fifteen years (if you don’t count the paper route).Β  Whoopie!! …okay, that wore me out.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better, eh? Marching off to bed.

  2. Rest well, Heal well, Congrats on Edit Job! Congrats on seeing responsibilities as motivators and holding the course – Re-think just how many ‘items’ are true responsibilities and which ones taken on when you were feeling full of vim/vigor – etc. You may not do that, but I can’t help but share my “hindsight is 20/20” experience – – LOL My list of true responsibilities just got culled, again, today – daily exercise to clear a forest grown over some 20 odd years – – πŸ™‚
