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.
