Monday, Monday

I'm exhausted before I've even gotten started today.  My toddler is sick.  His eyes are goopey.  I dread the moment he wakes up and I have to patiently tell him it's OK while I unstick his eyelids.  There's nothing more difficult for a two year old than having their eyelids glued shut.  I don't mind cleaning it up - I just know how hard it will be for him. 

So I will do what all of us mommies do, and take it an hour at a time and be positive.  Maybe he will feel better today.  Maybe he won't be afraid of the doctor this time.  Maybe today will be better.

I read in other people's blogs that we are being asked to do a reflection on our A-Z month.  I thought it was fun and not as difficult as I would have expected.  I normally feel like I write alone.  This month it was nice to do it together with all of you. 

I was going to try to write a chapter a day 5 days a week for May, but day one, today, is not looking so good.  In April, I was able to complete a tremendous amount of editing of my fiction and also did detailed planning of a new story.  This month I want to write.  Writing fiction makes me happy.  I will be happy this May....


  1. Awww, poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon and that you both get some rest.

    I'm going to see if I can do some writing this month, too. Last month I just did the blogging challenge and a lot of reading, which was very good for refreshing my brain.

  2. Poor baby :( I hope he gets better soon! I know how you feel about the writing, and I hope that works out well for you.

  3. A reflection post? Oops. I guess I jumped the gun, I mean am very efficient and wrapped all that up in my Z post.

    Such a relief that was over. I can't decide if I'm stimulated to write or releived for the break.

    Either way, I hope your little one is better soon, Tonja.
