The whirlwind started with speaking at the Inland NW Christian Writers Conference. I had so much fun with my class participants, the people at the conference, and new friends like Mindy (the conference photographer.

And what do you think happened? Yes, you are so on the ball! My to-do list disappeared. Now I'm flying by the seat of my pants trying to remember everything I had scheduled. Nope, that's not all. I'm still running a new Night Owls Club with the e-book give away from Tosca Lee and I— and the CAN book contest for May.
Enter prayer. Just needing to feel like the whirlwind will settle down and this wild ride becomes more exhilarating than exasperating once I find that missing list to check for missed items.
The funny result is that my husband and I have eaten more BLTs (with avocado) in the last 2 weeks than I've made in a year! I also adopted Muse, my new kitty, to help me get a sense of play and balance back in my heavy work schedule.

What do you simplify or share a coping skill when life throws you a whirlwind?
