The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

Good Evening My Friends! I hope all of you are well on the early Monday evening.
I know it’s a milestone, but I just saw my stats after not writing on my blog for the last couple of days and noticed that “I Hit 100 Followers.” To be honest, I was shocked. I can’t Thank You All enough for getting me to this point. The funny thing about this is that today I wanted to make an announcement regarding my blog. It was a hard decision, but it really is necessary for me to do this.
I’m going to be cutting back a bit with my entries. Instead of daily, I am going to do 2-3 entries per week. As most of you know, I have had issues with my sleeping pattern. I thought it was nipped in the butt, but (LOL!!!) I am still having extreme difficulty in falling asleep again. Although, I had seen my psychiatrist only last week to discuss tweaking my medication “Yet Again”, it is an adjustment that is taking its toll on me.
Another reason being is… I had wanted to join the “The Perfect Imperfect Bunch” and was graciously accepted to join. Within the week and a half of doing so, I gained 64 followers, which stunned me even more.
This past weekend, Sunday to be precise… I was supposed to do a poem that consisted of 1000-1200 words. Well, due to not being able to see without my missing glasses for three consecutive days, I only started working on it on Friday, 10/13/2017. “There, I chose the most unlucky day to attempt something I had never done before.” Of course, I had written short poems before, but nothing like this before. Saturday morning came, and I woke up with a vengeance. I literally lifted my box spring & mattress up high enough and spotted the missing glasses. “Eureka!!!”
With roughly 3 hours of sleep under my belt, I continued to work on this poem. I truly had no idea that it would take the wind out of me. “To be honest, a blog is much easier.” However, I kept plugging along and consuming mass quantities of coffee.
By the time my rough draft was completed and I had 1032 words, I was then entering it onto the TPIB site. I was fatigued and quite cranky when the said poem was finally (What I thought was completed) at 2:30 ish Sunday morning. It wasn’t until yesterday afternoon around 6 pm ish, that I noticed there were only 856 (If memory serves) words in my poem “Words…Here, There and Everywhere.” I was so disgusted after reading my rough draft, that I noticed I left out a complete paragraph. I was mortified.
That wasn’t until I read what Grabetty Covens wrote in his review of my poem. He brought tears to my eyes, literally speaking. Thank you for uplifting my spirit today Grabetty!!!
Today, was a very hectic day for me. I had to see my new dermatologist in order to have my right leg examined. It had only taken nearly 6 months to find one that accepted my insurance, and she was shocked to see how bad my leg was. I was prescribed an ointment to put on it for the time being, but have to go back to her again in November to have a biopsy done. “Yippy.”
After that was done, I went food shopping “Finally.” I had intentions of doing that for close to a week but never had the chance to do it. Then I really had to take care of things around the home, that I had placed on the back burner for a week as well.
Tomorrow, I have plans on catching up with a lot of reading of other writers here on WordPress and the TPIB site. I miss them. I simply didn’t have the energy to pull it up over the last two days.
Again, I want to Thank You All for following me and hope that you understand that I have to cut back a bit in order to work on more projects through TPIB. A shout out to Nitesh & Grabetty for all their patience in driving these poor men crazy with all my questions. You are both the greatest!!!!
One more little note… I reblogged it to BeckiesMentalMess, because my Mom follows too. She didn’t have access to reading it on the TPIB and Facebook. Love you Mom for all your support that you give me day in and day out.
Okay, my friends, it’s now that time where I have to eat dinner and relax. I hope that you all have a pleasant evening, and I will check you guys out tomorrow.
Take Care & God Bless You!!!
