I would have to say my life as a book in 2012 was at best a four star read. We had a few issues at the apex of the summer and later in the fall that made me question things in my life and marriage. Over all my life and marriage are great but these things popped that made me say hmm something is quite out of whack here.
The high points included a trip to participate in a writing marathon last July but shortly after my return hubby started acting controlling and tried to make me quit writing and publishing. I understood the money it was costing us a lot in fees and had agreed that this would be the last publishing venture of this type but he wanted to kybosh the whole thing. On top of that the cat injured her tail and needed surgery which even with a discount was a load of expense. I am going ahead with my last publishing venture where I pay for it after a lot of discussion.
The cats tail healed nicely after three months of her wearing a cone. I await the arrival of my cover art to get the book out there. November saw my daughter and son in-law getting their long awaited high school diplomas and Christmas with them and the little fella was great.
I had a couple of moments where my mental health was not the greatest but it perked up and I lost a load of weight. This was a plus except that I found out I am diabetic. That was not a surprise as it runs in my family. The health issue forced me to re-examine my habits and improve them. My self-esteem and my energy is better and I am doing more things that I couldn't do before. I give the year an A but it could have been better.
