But I have made it to the end of the week without too much stress or difficulty! Yay!
Why is that so exciting? Well I haven’t been feeling the best lately, health-wise, with an annoying cough, you know, the kind that tickles your throat when you cough, making you want to cough more until you want to throw up – yeah, THAT kind of cough.
I have also had some crappy sleep with the above mentioned cough, because I didn’t want to wake up my husband, and everytime I did cough or move, the cat thought I was getting up, or that it was time to get up, and thus purred loudly or tried to get into bed with me… Grrrr!
It is also the school holidays, and I don’t do kids very well, but I am pleased to report that I have actually made some significant inroads into my relationships with my steppies and we have all had a good time (even if they have spent most of it inside playing playstation or outside kicking a ball around). To be honest I really haven’t seen much of them, apart from an altercation yesterday afternoon when two of the three boys decided it would be safer in the lounge than in the bedroom with the third rampaging boy. Turns out he was pushed and antagonised, so my sympathy went with him.
I also had some paid work on Thursday through to Tuesday which went relatively well, there weren’t too many hitches and I hope I haven’t left a mess. I tried my best, and that is all that matters.
I even managed to get some editing done yesterday, which is better than I expected due to the school holidays. I also got to read a couple of other writers work and made some comments, so if I keep going like that, I might get it finished in a couple of weeks!
So while I am still not 100%, I have made it through this week. I survived the gauntlet of the school holidays and I am looking forward to some “ME” time next week when it is just me, myself and I.
