I'm Back, well for a quick visit anyway

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it has been a while! Finally we are above freezing here during the day, so that means all the mountains of snow are melting! YAY!

I have been working hard to meet a pretty tight deadline, so really I have been trying not to get distracted by social media and sort of succeeding. Of course I have to be on Social media SOME of the time to keep my author page going! Oh yes, some of you don't know, I AM AN AUTHOR!

My book is due to be released Spring 2016 --- so a year from now. I co-wrote it with 4 other local authors and it is basically a devotional for writers that explores the topic of writing, with prompts at the end of each devotion so that the reader ( in this case, reader and writer) can follow up with some writing of their own. It is inspirational and practical, all rolled into one!

By the end of May I will know if they are keeping the working title or not, so I will let you know more about it then! Here is a pic of me signing the contract!

As for my health, it is pretty much the same, the kids have been sick on and off since Christmas! Thankfully I have not been. My weight is stable and there are not drastic ups or downs! THIS IS GOOD!

I still have flare ups of my hip being very painful if I over do things, so I am careful with it! I think I may have to start swimming again in the summer, but for now, the doc says NO RUNNING! So I will oblige! The kids are getting new bikes for their birthdays so we will be doing a lot of cycling in the summer ( when it eventually arrives in June!)

I hope all of you are well, I have missed being on here! Please pop by and say HI!

    Aw, sorry about the hip, but I know you love swimming and I bet that'll be good for it. So excited about your book! My best friend is attempting to write a children's book, I bet she'll want a copy!

    Hi Mel!! I missed reading your blogs..
    Glad to hear you are doing well despite the hip flare ups. Way to go getting back in the water this summer, you used to enjoy that so much a few years ago.
    I can't wait to hear more about your book and for it to be published!!
