Hello again, my dear WordPress blog readers and subscribers! Hope you all had a grand time over the holidays and that you missed out on the flu season of 2018/19. We did not, alas, but we did discover an unexpected remedy for a cough: chocolate. My husband heard Rush Limbaugh talking about it and gave it a try, and is convinced it works. He kept telling me to try it out and so one day when the coughing just would not stop, I made myself a cup of Starbucks Hot Cocoa Mix and one sip was all it took. I’m not exaggerating. The cough stopped after one sip and stayed gone almost all day. Whereas prior to that I coughed all day. So I’m a believer, now! (And also a chocolate lover; does that make my conclusion biased?)
The flu and the holidays also contributed to my failure to post as much as I’d hoped (even if it was only once or twice a week), but perhaps now that all that’s behind us, I can be a little more regular. I’m pretty sure some of it’s related to burnout, though life getting in the way also contributed. Then again, I can’t say I’ve done nothing, seeing as I have 17 chapters of first draft material for my work kinda/sorta-in-progress (ie, The Other Side of the Sky), though that was all carried out in previous years, before the point a year ago when I just couldn’t make myself go on… So, we’ll see how it goes.
P.S I just found a post I did on Burnout in August of 2010 a tad over eight years ago. I was flabbergasted to discover it. How can that be possible? Time really has gotten away from me. The link, which was supplied to me by WordPress just now is right here:
