Monday Mishmash 5/9/16


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Mother's Day  I hope all the moms enjoyed their day yesterday. I had a great weekend complete with a shopping day with my daughter while my husband cleaned the entire house. Now that's a great Mother's Day!
  2. Drafting  I'm working on an Ashelyn Drake adult contemporary romance. I wasn't planning to draft right now, but the idea just hit me and I had to write.
  3. Scaling Back  I've been really stressed lately and overworked. I'm making an effort to scale back for the sake of my sanity and health.
  4. PTO Luncheon  This week I'm going to the PTO luncheon at my daughter's school. It's so nice of the teachers to do this for the PTO volunteers.
  5. Beth Fred's Newsletter Giveaway  My friend Beth has a giveaway going on. All you have to do is subscribe to her newsletter to enter to win an Amazon gift card. Go enter here.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

    1. It is. It's not easy for me to say no to people, but when my health becomes an issue, I have to do it.

  4. Mothers Day was super. Wine tasting, picnic, live music and lots of people.

    Kick back and relax a bit. That's always healthy.

  7. Happy Monday and Mother's Day. A clean house sounds like a great gift. I cooked enough food for the next 2-3 days and did laundry. Then spent the night with a mother's day dinner out. And the cutest card, written and signed by my hubby. And it's great that a new draft has been born. What's on my mind today? Well, I'm enjoying my blogging break but taking a break to blog at Unicornbell.blogspot.com this week.

  9. I always wonder how you can do everything you do. Scaling back for yourself is a good idea.

    I'm glad you had a great weekend. :)

  10. Husband cleaned the whole house? We want your husband!
    Yes, I was wondering when you will scale back. But even on a less astonishing schedule, I have a feeling you will still do amazing work, only stay healthier.
