The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
When I think of anniversaries I think of happy celebrations. This past Wednesday marked 2 years since my son took his life. Not a happy celebration, so for me “anniversary” is just not the right word. Unlike last year I had decided months ago to just treat it like a normal day on my blog and for the book tours. I filled the day with work and commitments hoping that would push me through the day. Well, that was a mistake because it wasn’t a normal day, it wasn’t a normal week. My filling the week with work has left me feeling overwhelmed and behind in so many things. I had hoped to catch up this weekend but roadblocks just keep throwing themselves in my path.
Then on Tuesday, when I tried to update tour pages on my blog the program had mind of its own and was opening earlier revisions with a many things missing. Confusing to explain, confusing to fix but I finally got the pages updated and the problem seems to have gone away.
Wednesday, the actual day I needed time for myself my email inbox was overflowing with things I needed to handle. To ignore them would have just put me further behind. Wednesday night I couldn’t sleep, that night from 2 years ago, the police at the door telling us our son was gone, just kept replaying itself in my mind and when I did get to sleep the nightmares had returned. When I finally got to sleep it was about 7 a.m. and then of course I didn’t get up on time, again, chasing my tail to get caught up.
Friday, no matter what I did I just couldn’t stay on task and soon it was 6 p.m. and I just had to stop.
Saturday, up early, ready to get caught up, my printer stopped working and Microsoft did some kind of update during the night and the restart took over an hour. I wanted to just do a manual shutdown and start over but the last time I had done that it caused more problems so I waited.
So no, not caught up, still behind. I am hoping today is better. This was just the computer side. I didn’t do hardly any reading this week and no time on the weekend for much reading because of all the time at the computer. Believe me, I have learned my lesson. Next year, I am not scheduling anything for this week.
Now I push forward until Kris’ birthday on March 29. Yes, I will be behind again then too.
