What a week it has been… though Monday was a holiday leaving only Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning as work days, it has felt like a very long week.

My bug, whatever it was, went away.  My fevers finally broke then stopped altogether.  My swollen gland finally stopped putting pressure on my throat and ears.  Unfortunately I ended up with migraines every day but Wednesday, my day off.  Until bedtime!

And my last guest blog post was posted yesterday!  This one is near and dear to my heart as most of you know so I hope you find it informative.  I hope everyone found the entire series informative and if you haven’t reached the age for screening yet, I hope you share it with your parents, aunts, uncles and anyone else who has reached the age.  The last post can be found here http://hashtagged.com.pk/2018/05/24/cervical-cancer-pap-papanicolou-test/

I also managed to get my short story contest entry dropped into the mailbox so it should be well on its way by now.  My to-do list is currently shrinking so I might be able to get back to my non-fiction book!  I’d love to get it done because I need to know how long it is before I can start pitching it anywhere!

The weather here has taken a turn for the better and despite the threat of thunderstorms (hence all the migraines) I’m grateful that the temperature is going up, especially after how cold the winter was and how cold it was for me because I was stuck indoors for so long after my surgery.  It has also brought the lilacs into full bloom and, though they don’t last long, I went and cut some.  My entire house is filled with the wonderful smell!

I am also debating on whether I want to take on the challenge, my challenge to myself, of writing a blog post a day for a month.  I’m not sure I could do it in June because of work and the new software migration but maybe for July…

Don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted!  My next challenge is to try to finish the piece I have been working on for the Guideposts contest.  I just don’t know if I’m up to that right now!  I have a story written but I’m not sure about it.  I’m not sure about it being the right story for this.  Maybe I’m looking at it too critically but I’m just not sure.
