This is life right now

A field of calm around me and I’m the tornado spinning in the middle.

Not that I’m complaining. I have the opportunity to attend the Ad Astra Convention with The Queen’s Viper this weekend and I’m going to be at Indigospirit Bookstore at Mt. Sinai Hospital with Growing a Rainbow for a pre-Mother’s Day author signing on May 4th (11 a.m. to 2 p.m. if you want to come and say hello). Between shifts at the hospital, I’m entering writing competitions, working on new material, and racing my son in the grass (he wins every time). I’m making Disney Cruise Fish Extender gifts for our upcoming trip, and planning the school Fun Fair.

There are other things on my plate, not least of which is wondering why, of all times, my washing machine is leaking.

Am I breathing? Barely.

Am I happy? Yes – even though the drip, drip, drip drives me batty.
