My village got me here! And that’s so much the truth! I wouldn’t be able to take this trip, be in this airport, ready to have the time of my life as a writer, without my little village. My parents are watching my three sick kids today while my husband works. They will have to watch them part of tomorrow as well, until he can get off from work, and I know that’s not easy. The kids, bless them, even though they don’t feel well have been real troopers. The baby seems to be feeling better even though she’s snotty, and my big kid is handling her illness better than expected. My parents and husband are awesome. I know it’s not easy to watch my kids, they each have some sort of special need, the baby, being a baby, comes with wanting mommy a lot, not sleeping through the night, my son with his speech delay and my daughter with ADHD. Parenting is already not for the faint of heart. It’s not meant for everyone in this world, this is for sure.
I know my kids will be happy and loved while I’m gone, and my daughter actually told me she would miss me. Which I didn’t think was possible, honestly. She’s such a daddy’s girl. Thank you, mom and dad and hubby! I love you bunches! I promise to sleep in, stay up late. Make friends, learn things and get work done while I’m gone.
Business talk: I plan to start the third series book while I’m away and to get a good chunk of films watched for review/judging while traveling too. I am currently at the terminal Starbucks having my breakfast and third cup (decaf this time) of coffee. I got my huge bottle of water and realized I forgot my makeup and probably could use a new shirt that says Washington on it, but I might wait until Denver for a bigger selection. Lol
So, yeah, distractions. I promise I’m going to work! Hahaha...ha....ha. 😬
