Getting my life back!  
I turned in a book February 19th, then February 20th I started a new book and wrote every day, evening and weekend.  Even when I was on "vacation" or doing school visits.

I turned that book in on June 1.  The editor has already given me edits (she's fast!) and she loves it.  For the first time in literally years, I've got some free time.  I want to take a step back and look at my my one wild and precious life (to paraphrase poet Mary Oliver).  I want to decide it's "okay" to read more for pleasure, or even to watch one of the many TV programs I've only heard about.  I want to get myself back in balance, instead of to always be working.

What things do you wish you were doing?

Actually, your list sounds pretty good to me.

I'll really have a chance to catch up on TV tomorrow - I'm buying 30 pounds of pie cherries at the farmers market and pitting them all.

I still struggle with how to balance things after the break. I need to find a balance!
