Remember how I said yes to too many things? April is when that bit me in the ass. I could see it coming, a train in the tunnel. Thankfully, the tunnel was wide enough for me to safely pass through, and now we’re looking at the last few weeks of the school year with only a few more obligations to see through.
Three pieces of good news. Found a replacement for my work with Haven Totes. I have truly enjoyed working with this organization for the last two years, but it was difficult to balance it at the same time when my kiddos most needed me. I will continue to support the Haven Totes mission in other ways, but I am turning over my day to day responsibilities to someone else.
Annual testing is done at my younger son’s school. The PTA helped with testing incentives this year. If the kids took their test that day, they got a treat. Although exactly zero students looked forward to the test, they did look forward to the reward after. The testing coordinator is brilliant
Last bit of good news (and I’m burying the lede on purpose). I’ve sent Book 2 to my editor, and I’m already working with the cover designer. Tentative title is “Devil’s Claw & Moonstone”.
No bad news to report at the moment, just exhausted after a hectic month. Happy Passover and Happy Easter. We’re more of an eat-candy-and-hang-out family when it comes to holidays, but however you celebrate, enjoy!
