Am I the only person who feels like I never get caught up. I look ahead and think I'm going to have a day with no demands on me but when the day arrives a dozen different things either demand or want my attention.
This long weekend for those of us in the states would appear to be a good time for some relaxing activities. But a whole lot of things are quickly filling the schedule. My daughter's nineteenth birthday is on Saturday. We're shopping for the two meager gifts she requested, going to see Star Trek together and then meeting the rest of the family for wings at our favorite casual restaurant. That will pretty much take care of Saturday.
My husband and my oldest son are working a side job all weekend, leaving me with the duties of shopping for and planning the family cookout on Monday. The usual cleaning and laundry duties will also take their share of time. And this summer-like weather is urging me to get some work done outside.
There is a stack of six books from the library I really want to read and six other books I've purchased and half a dozen on my Kindle that I really want to read. But my current WIP is demanding I fight through the middle. I'm afraid of letting the action slow down. Suddenly a three day weekend seems way to short. But that countdown meter is keeping me sane.
I want to take the time to give a shout out to James Garcia Jr. The official release date for Seeing Ghost is June 3rd but it's available now. Check out his facebook page or his blog to learn more.
Do you have plans this weekend? Are a lot of different things demanding your time? Do you know James or his books?
