When Life Interferes with Plans by Marilyn Meredith

On the calendar this last week looked like it was nearly wide open to work on my latest w-i-p, which happens to be a Tempe Crabtree mystery.

Instead, life intervened as most of my readers knows.

Like I wrote about earlier, my husband got very ill and we had to go to the ER, spent 3 days at the hospital, and once home had a lot of adjusting to do.

The fact that he had a horrible cold, as did my daughter and I, didn't help matters any. I don't think I could have done it without daughter. She did all the driving and various other things here at home, including spending 3 nights with us.

I had two newsletters that needed finishing--fortunately both were nearly done. One just had to be sent off to the fellow who actually posts it--the other had to wait until I attended a meeting and got the latest information, but it was all done except for the last page.

For anyone who wonders why I do so much ahead of time it's because I know that emergencies tend to crop up and it's much easier on me if I've done as much as possible ahead of time.

I also received the print-ready copy of A Crushing Death to go over one last time. So I did that starting yesterday evening and finished this morning. And yes, I did find some mistakes. I hope I got them all.

Also realized I had two more blog posts to write, so that's what I'm doing now.

No, I'm not complaining, just telling it like it is.

Marilyn
