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....
