How are you guys doing? I finally turned in my first Blaze book, and I’m a little nervous. I really want her to like it. I absolutely feel in love with my hero, Jackson, and I hope my editor does too. :-) It’s been a crazy, busy time the last month. I feel like I’m just now getting my head above waters.
I’ve been suffering from the if it’s not one thing, it’s another, syndrome. But when I look around I see that I am not alone. And I’m telling you if I hear the ‘E’ word again and how we’re in the new Great D, my head is going to explode. It seems like everyone I know is going through something.
SO… This weekend I wanted to open up the blog and talk about what brings you peace and harmony? What can get you in that tranquil state where your shoulders drop and your chest doesn’t feel so tight?
I’m trying some new things and remembering to do some of the old ones. My newest one is playing Animal Crossing on Wii. My kids think it’s the lamest game ever, but it’s relaxing for me. And fun. I mean come on, where else can you wear a tiara, while you’re making $20,000 a day fishing? I meet interesting new people and have even been known to play hide and seek. ;-)
I’m also doing my Wii exercise yoga and playing the balance game. My goal this week is to try the walking game. I’ll let you know how that goes. The Wii stuff is not like “real” exercise but it still gets my heart rate up.
I’m taking hot, soaking baths in epsom salts, while I play my hand held Yahtzee. It’s a great way to check out for half an hour. And I’m reading a lot on the Kindle.
Oh, and I found a new game on yahoo games, the Fish game. That’s another way to give my mind a break from troubles, though I have to give myself time limits when I play. :-)
I’m sure I do more than this, but it’s all I can think of on this cold Saturday morning.
So how about you? What do you do to bring peace to your life? Or how do you check out with mind candy?
Mippy Carlson is the first winner of the CCing contest. That’s where you send the message about how your friend Candace Havens has a new book out, The Demon King and I, and you cc me with your friends’ email addresses.
I say first winner because I’m going to continue the contest. There are all kinds of prizes. Mindy is winning a gift certificate from Amazon.
As soon as we get the pictures posted on the website, we’ll also announce the winner of that contest. Again, we had such a great response we’re going to keep going with that too.
