Six-Word Saturday Meme #37

Posted on: April 19, 2014


Doing well; Enjoy the Easter weekend!

The past few months I have not been doing well. I suffer from Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), which among other things leaves me tired, aching, moody, depressed, and craving sugar. It goes in bouts, but recently it’s gotten pretty bad. So, I vamped up the vitamins. I also started limiting my intake of snacks and sweets. For now at least, I’m doing better.

Another factor that hasn’t helped my health are all the hours I spent on my novel and on nothing else. When I finally finished my second draft, a monster of 120,000 words, I decided to diversify my life. Evenings during the week, I’m attending a church Bible Study, tutoring, and taking an art class. As for my weekends, those are now restricted to activities which do not involve my novel. I’ve started helping out with animal rescue and creating scrapbooks of my pets. It’s nice to feel more balanced!

That’s my week. What about yours?

It is good you are finding a balance we all need. Happy Easter!

Always nice to have your visit! Happy Easter.

Balance is definitely required to make life work. Everything in moderation. Have a Happy Easter!

Balance seems to be a regular struggle for me. There’s so many fun things to do but there are also so many hours in the day. There’s so much to be happy about but also so many things that can go wrong. The list goes on…. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. Happy Easter to you too!

WOW! You are a very busy woman! Sounds like fun things though!

Take good care of you! Happy Easter!

Thanks for the well wishes! Happy Easter to you too.

Glad you are doing better – congrats on the novel!

Thank you!

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!
