But it’s done. This has been the most extensive reno my husband and I have ever embarked on, and I’m pretty sure it’ll be the last one. Next time I want a new kitchen, I think we’ll just move!
I’m looking forward to life getting back to some semblance of normal. And I’m also looking forward to moving ahead to a new step in my writing career. Very soon I’ll be sending the first book of the series I plan to self-publish to my editor. It’s going to be a busy summer!
During this very busy summer, I want to make sure to take time for self-care. I talked about Me Time in a previous blog post, and to that end I’ve made an appointment for a massage as well as a spa day with my husband. We didn’t have time to celebrate our anniversary in May, so this will be a combination anniversary/Father’s Day celebration for us. I’m looking forward to a little relaxing.
Last week I talked about conferences, such as which conference I should go to, or whether I should go at all. I got a lot of great suggestions and opinions from commenters. I think I’ve made a decision. I’m going to go to the 20 Book Conference for indie authors in Los Vegas in November, though I haven’t had a chance to book yet. It seems to be the best conference for me right now. I’m also going to a writing retreat in November with my author friends like the one I went to in early April, so it’s going to be a very busy month. But a fun one!
When you read this, I’m going to be on the road. My husband and I are headed to Minneapolis for a Tom Petty concert, something that’s been on his bucket list for awhile. So I may not have a chance to respond right away. And to my fellow Word Wranglers, I’m so sorry I haven’t commented on your blogs this week. It’s just been a crazy busy week. But now that the renos are done, I promise to be a better Word Wrangler in the future! Have a great weekend everyone!
