More Chaos? Sure, Why Not?

Sunlit Leaves

And again, everything seems to be hitting at once. At least this time it is all good stuff. Mostly. Hubby’s annual bake sale at work is coming up so I am starting on all the baking for that today. I don’t think I’m doing anything new this time, but I’ll be sure to repost any recipes.

Both BG and MC are in science club this year. This week is has an extra event and they both go really long because they are working on a project. The problem is I won’t know for sure how long. I just have to sit around and wait for them to call or text to tell me they are done. Normally, this isn’t an issue, but… I’ll be baking. I cannot have just put something in the oven when they text me to come get them. That means I have a huge block of time this afternoon that I can’t be doing any actual baking. Fun.

AND… I heard back from my editor last night and I have my first round of feedback and edits to work on. But I can’t. At least not until I’ve finished the bake sale stuff. I know how I work and I cannot just sit down and focus while something is in the oven. I will have to be able to devote all of my time to this or something is going to slip and I sure don’t want it to be a batch of cupcakes in the oven that I’ve forgotten about because I was so engrossed in working on the edits.

I’m so excited, yet stressed at the same time. It isn’t helping that it is looking like my annual bout of bronchitis is trying like hell to settle in and is accompanied by some of the worst and weirdest headaches I’ve ever had. With all of that rolling around in my head along with the nasties, sleep wasn’t my friend last night.

But, sure! Bring on more crazy. I can handle it. Maybe.

I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

  1. Step 1 – medicate/look after yourself and all the other stuff will not seem so chaotic


    Step 2 – bake, bake, bake!!!


    Step 3 – enjoy your editing process and be proud of yourself for getting this far already (and for your juggling skills) 🙂

    1. I’ve been downing meds like it is candy to get through lately. Hopefully it will actually work soon. I managed to get well over half of my baking done today. I have a little left for tomorrow plus icing and packaging, so it is huge progress as I didn’t expect to get that much done in one day.
