Juggling, Juggling, Jugglinc

And what am I juggling?

Writing my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree book.

Planning Promotion for my upcoming Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, Murder in the Worst Degree, expected in March.

Ordinary household chores--you know, doing laundry, cooking dinner.

And life in general.

Just to give you a taste of a few days of juggling:

After getting ready for the day, scanned emails, answered most important. Do this everyday.

Did some preliminary promo about a blog I was a guest on:  http://pat-writersforum.blogspot.com/

Sunday, I taught a Sunday School class, 3rd to 6th graders, then church. Out to lunch with family. (Super bowl not something any of us really care about.)

On Sunday, I always spend the afternoon with hubby--though I do take some sneak peeks at email and Facebook--and I go to bed early almost every night.

Monday I sent hubby off with a list of errands. Did the laundry and made dinner in a crokpot. Squeezed in a bit of writing. Around 15 of 11 went to the church to help with a reception for a memorial service earlier in the a.m. 

Went through the mail, answered what was needed, served dinner, and went to Bible study.

Did some of the same things as Monday--but did get quite a bit of writing in. 

And on Wednesday, I went to the Art Association's board meeting to see if I could do a book launch there in April or May. 

Of course I've left out other things I did, but this gives you an idea of how most days go. I get phone calls, visits by my great-granddaughter and daughter--son and his wife--they all live next door.

One thing I can say quite honestly, I am never bored.

Marilyn,
These days, we all have a lot to juggle but when I start to feel overwhelmed, I think of all that you accomplish and that helps to put things in perspective for me.
