Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

52 Ways to Joy - Just Say NO
The kids are off while the hubby and I toil away at our desks, because, well their "free" time is filled with numerous activities that certainly aren't "free!"
The summer has only just begun and already I'm stressed.
Let's go here.
Let's do this.
Work just doesn't disappear when the sun shines, bills don't take a holiday and I'm being pulled in a hundred directions.
What's going to bring me joy over the next two months? I'm going to have to figure out a way to say NO to something.
Even if it's just one appointment, one extra job, or *gasp* one activity or carpool a week.
I know it's hard. We've been trained to say yes...we've been trained to give and give and then crawl into bed at night wondering where the day went.
This week I plan to take back my summer vacation - even if it's not a vacation, even if I still have work and deadlines, I plan to say NO to one thing that gives me stress I don't need or want!
What about you? How can you re-claim your summer vacation...what can you say NO to this week? I think I'm going to say NO to making dinner and order a pizza :)
