I’m really pushing hard on this book now. In that zone where it’s all coming together and there’s so much to wrap up. I love that place–but it’s really tough! So wish me luck on it, okay?
Speaking of driving, we got home at the end of last week. Spent the weekend back to school shopping, and today, off they went. The summer just ZIPPED. Probably because I spent 4 out of 24 days between July 29-August 22 in my home. The rest…elsewhere. Is it any wonder I’ve decided I am NOT LEAVING MY HOUSE for at least a month. :cursing:
Anyway, I have to get back to work, but I did want to say hello, I’m home, the funeral was amazing and wonderful and had me on my feet singing my lungs out and applauding my aunt’s life, rather than crying and walking away feeling like a used dish rag. Uplifting…not heart-wrenching.
Did everybody else’s kids go back to school today? Or last Monday? How’d that go?
PS: On the subject of driving. I drove the girls to Florida by myself and Bruce drove my daughter’s car down the following weekend. What an adventure. Just being quiet and listening to the conversation had me (quietly) cracking up.
12 year old: Twilight is the best book ever. I wish I was a vampire.
17 year old: Yeah, it rocked. I wish I was a vampire, too.
20 year old: Well I’d rather be a werewolf.
17 year old: If you were a werewolf and we were vampires, would you try to kill us?”
20 year old: No way.
12 year old: But werewolves hate vampires. They can’t even stand the smell of them.
20 year old: Well, I haven’t been able to stand the smell of either of you since the day you were born, and I haven’t tried to kill you yet!
