If you’ve read these posts for any amount of time, you know my family has been hit with some serious “ick”. My mother thinks we may have had the flu–if so, we’re surviving well enough that I’m still glad we didn’t get the shots.
In the long run, I think we’ll be better off.
For now, however, I’m following my body’s demands–a last cat nap before I must be more active. You see, next ROW80 round, I volunteered to be a sponsor–that means I will be online and more active in the blogosphere starting the beginning of the month.
And there is a shorter than average break between rounds this time. Usually the pause is about ten days. This time… it’s less than four.
Considering this, I gave myself permission, starting Sunday evening to just rest and “play” a little. I’ve watched television and read books and played video games. I’ve done some house cleaning catch-up, desk straightening, clothes sorting, shelf-emptying…
I’ve crocheted; I’ve doodled… I’ve napped.
I have not been online much. I have not played any of my Facebook games, I have not participated in any ROW80 sprints, and I have not written much of anything.
I have had some great fanfic dreams, and even started mulling new directions in my more serious works. Lots of good stuff actually…
Anyway, I’ve been taking five. I’m going to continue to do so until this Sunday when I will be posting my Round 2 goals. I will still post a Friday Photo this week to welcome Spring. A little pick-me-up never hurt anyone….
Here ends my closing post for Round 1 of A Round of Words in 80 Days 2013; I had little to report today, but sometimes the less said, the more taken in. The round was a good one in general. I met (and usually exceeded) my writing and social media goals. My fitness goals fell by the wayside as did many of my editing goals…although this Sunday and Monday I actually made up some lost ground there.
In all, it was an excellent ROWnd.
