Here it is August already, and even though I'm coming back from a month's hiatus, it doesn't seem nearly long enough.
Here's the thing: my husband is truck driving, which is his first job in seven months, and he has been driving since June. What with the long unemployment stint, we have been grateful for the job. But, he is gone all the time, although home 3 out of 4 "weekends" which this past one was only about 24 hours home. Doesn't seem hardly enough.
We have both been praying for something else to come up, and so it has: a job beginning October 4 at a local hospital as an engineering tech. We are SO thankful!
But I seem to be dragging these days, and my writing life has certainly suffered. I've been moping around, missing my husband, trying to figure out new markets and strategies for my book, and reading a lot. When all else fails, read!
So who has some tried-and-true strategies for pulling yourself out of the doldrums and getting back into the swing of things? Write and let me know!
