I unfortunately wonâ€™t be at the upcoming OCC meeting. It sounds wonderful, but Iâ€™ll have family in town. And family comes first! Especially since the visitors will include my little grandson, whoâ€™s ten months old. He, and my son and d-i-l, live in Chicago.
I saw them just over a week ago, too, on a Florida trip that I blogged about in my weekly Killer Hobbies blog. Great trip, one on which Iâ€™d intended to do a lot of writing. But despite the best of intentions, I spent more time with family than writing. Since then, Iâ€™ve pretty much caught up on what Iâ€™d hoped to accomplish, which makes me even happier that I did what felt best at the time.
Will I get much writing done next week? Maybe not. But Iâ€™ve fortunately met the most compelling of my deadlines, so I can afford to have fun and spend time with family.
So how about you–does family come first, or your writing, or your day job, or other obligations? Or are you able to juggle them all so nothing is ignored?
