Taken on June 6, 2015 in Minnesota with a Canon Rebel T3i.

It’s been a rough week and a half. I can’t go into much more detail than that because it involves other people and my 9-to-5 job. Suffice it say, I’m feeling a bit discombobulated on top of trying to get over what feels like the never-ending battle with bronchitis. I’m tired physically and emotionally. I think I could sleep for a month (if my coughing didn’t keep me up).

Because I’m feeling a bit out of sorts, I’m trying to focus on the positive things now.

  • The weather is slowly warming up.

  • I’ve finished some excellent books lately.

  • An author took a chance and hired me to help them with MailChimp.

  • I’m seeing my family this weekend (be prepared for cute kid pics soon!

  • I booked a bed and breakfast for our summer vacation.

  • The North Iowa Book Bash is just a few weeks away.

  • In the Spotlight is celebrating one year! (Have you entered the giveaway?)

  • There is only ONE In the Spotlight date available for 2016 and it is only the middle of April! WHAT?!

  • I’ve got more Behind the Curtain posts planned. Are you ready to learn?

  • I finished one of the courses I signed up for and am half way through another.

  • I’ve got my taxes done.

  • Despite being out of sorts, I made it through another week…

So how about you? What’s keeping you happy this week?

  1. Sorry to hear about your week. Other people and my 9-to-5 job can suck sometime :(. I hope you finally get over that bronchitis.
    YAY! An author client. If I ever get my work publish I’ll hire you too 😉 I CANNOT WAIT for your Behind the Curtain posts! Have a MUCH better week

    My happiness this weekend came in the form of wine and the season premiere of Outlander.

  3. Aw, I am so sorry that you’re having a rough time. I hope that things get better with the people and the job stuff, and that you start feeling better very soon! I am glad that you are able to look at the positives though! And the quote is so perfect for a crappy time when you really just want to look to happier things. As an eternal pessimist, I will just say “everything sucks” and throw a tantrum, so you don’t need my shenanigans 😉 That snowman understands the struggle! 😀
