The past three weeks, since the release of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey have been VERY busy. I've enjoyed each moment. I've reconnected with friends of the past, met Facebook friends and some of you that follow the blog, and enjoyed sharing at various speaking events.
Yesterday I spent the day in Rome at a vendor's fair. I almost didn't go because I wasn't feeling well but how could I not show up. I am a girl of my word so I went. I'm glad I did. Sold a few books and saw a couple friends I don't usually see.
I packed up and was on the road a half hour early because I started to not feel so good. With books, table, chair, and personal belongings loaded I started the hour plus drive home after calling to let my family know I was in route. About twenty minutes from home I started to feel worse and contemplated pulling over but decided to forge ahead, praying the entire way. I arrived home safely.
I carried in my bags and collapsed into a chair. After spending a few minutes looking at pictures with Mags and hearing about her day I assumed the position under the electric blanket. Ed arrived shortly thereafter and moved me to the bedroom, gave me more allergy medicine and Advil and this is where I remained until about 6 p.m. tonight. I'm awake, moving, and feeling a little better.
Ever since I was a teenager I am known for pushing myself, and pushing hard to meet deadlines and accomplish goals I've set. I knew prior to the April third release, the weeks following would be taxing, yet worth it. I'm thankful God got me home safely yesterday. I am sitting up this Sunday evening, so this is progress.
Tomorrow starts a new week, with only one book signing scheduled on Saturday, May 4th at the Pulaski Kinney's from Noon until 2 p.m. This will be a week of rest and recouping. Thank you all for your support, prayers, and encouragement!
