A mixed week ahead...

Well, today is the last day of my daughter's school holidays. She goes back to school tomorrow, so I was planning to use this week for the revision of one of the stories I wrote last month. But... decided against it.

Instead, I'm going to take this week off from one project and concentrate on a bunch of them. Or none of them. I want this to be one of those weeks where I flutter from one idea to another, when I sit down and take much-needed notes, or jot down what needs to be done next month. I already know what I'd like to do during the first week of August, and that's revision.

I'll be working on a second draft.

Second drafts are tricky for me because that's when I usually hate the story. I know, it's really strange but that's how it is. By the end of the second draft, I'm once again in love with it, but it's still a weird process. Lol.

Exactly two weeks ago, I busted up my toe. This morning I did my first yoga workout since then. There were a few moves that made my toe feel a little uncomfy, but it didn't hurt. During the weekend, it hurt on Saturday but was okay yesterday. The bruising is almost gone. Almost. But the swelling's still there. Not as bad, but still enough to keep me from wearing shoes. So, now I walk around with a sneaker on my left foot, and a thong (flip-flop) on the other. It looks and feels wonky, but it's the only way I can get around properly.

I'm pretty sure I broke it. So it looks like I've still got a few weeks of discomfort to go. At least, according to what I've read online. :) That's also the reason why I didn't go to the doctor, because apparently, they can't do much for a broken toe anyway. So, I'm toughing it out and hopefully it'll heal on it's own. Of course, if I still can't wear shoes after five weeks... then I'll have to consider going to a doctor. But not before then. ;)

Okay, that's enough toe talk.

Over the weekend, I read JASMYN by Alex Bell, GHOSTGIRL: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley, and started reading THE SUMMONING by Kelley Armstrong. I'll be posting reviews for JASMYN and GHOSTGIRL closer to their Aussie release, but they were both great books. Especially JASMYN. I loved it!

Well, I guess that's it for today. Hope you all have a great week!
