Out of sorts

Every day this week has been a struggle.

My kids are on a mission to make me certifiably insane. You think I'm kidding? Yes? Think again. Chicken started running a fever on Monday. Sinus crud. Still not convinced there's not some food rotting in his sinus cavity that we'll have to have surgery for.

Punky has been extra whiny and I have no idea what her deal is.

Cupcake is teething AND is going to have to have surgery to open up a clogged tear duct in the near future. But I'm not too worried about it, supposedly it's only a 5-10 minute surgery.

Not only that, but my energy level is next to nothing. I can barely hold my head up during the day. And if one person mentions the "P" word I'll hunt you down like a dog. I'm not pregnant!!! I think I might be getting a little anemic or something. Lot's of headaches, lots of irritability, lots of yuckiness. I've drastically cut back on our red meat and my lack of iron intake is probably the culprit.

At any rate, I just don't want to do anything but sit or sleep.

I also got a few rejections on my newest MS. No big deal, to be honest. The only thing is one of the agents gave me some much appreciated advice to lengthening my story. It's only at 45K (5K less than I thought it was, too!)so I'm literally going to have to double it. Not an easy feat! I've been pretty bummed about that, too.

Sooo, sorry I haven't been around for awhile. Can't say I will be posting with any regularity, either until things start going a little better. hopefully this post finds you feeling well and excited about the weekend!

You will have a better week next week!!! Let's just start with today. :) I'm sorry about the rejections on your work, but I know when you finish it completely after all the corrections and suggestions, it will be a real success. I have faith in you and your writing ability. I know I enjoy reading them. :)

Maybe head to the dr and have your blood work could be an easy fix.

And, Izzy had her tear ducts done, it was really, really fast! Coming out of the anesthesia was awful, but her eyes were so much better (they were always red and irritated from the crud).

I hope everybody else gets to feeling better soon.

And, keep pressing for that MS publication. It will happen.

Have you ever tried taking a B complex vitamin? That's helped me in the past. Maybe you can take a break on the ms to give you some distance. I just hate to hear you discouraged. It's a beautiful story and I hope you can find some clarity to finish it;) Hope you have a better weekend.

I'm blog hopping tonight and just came over to your blog from someone else's. Sorry you're not feeling well. It probably didn't help to have a rejection too. But at least they gave you an idea of what you could do differently! God Bless!

Rejections are part of the deal and it's AWESOME that you got feedback. I got so many rejections that were just "Thanks, not for me".

Just keep up what you are doing.
