Balancing Surgery, Viruses and Writing

Athena    This looks like me this week.  My husband and I have been sharing a virus after his hip surgery a mere three weeks ago.  Rehab, viruses and work have taken their toll.  Even the dog is tired of this life and has gone into survival mode.   Yes, I know, I was late with the blog this week too.

But, I will survive!  How does that old song go?  And so will the husband with the new hip.  We’ll just have to slow down a little.

But, I did get some good writing done over the weekend.  I’m working on a new YA novel and trying to stick to the rules of romance writing this time.  I’m not good at following rules sometimes so I wrote it in bold letters at the bottom of my manuscript where I see it often – boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back.   I plan to follow them this time.  I can do this.

I can also rest and recuperate.  The caregiver has to take care of herself too.  I will get some extra rest.

So what do you do to relax when you’ve overdone it?  I write – I find it relaxing.
