I’m not REALLY fishing, at least I don’t think I am, but I am taking a MUCH needed R&R break in Truro for a few days. This is our annual trip, and I’ve been working myself to the bone – taking on six days of work in only three days – just so I can accomplish a few days of eating ice cream and reading on the beach. I’ve been working myself to the bone – taking on six days of work in only three days – WHILE keeping the kids home from camp this week. With us leaving for our trip mid-week, I didn’t spend the money to send them to camp. I should have spent the money! They WANT camp. They WANT routine.
Now I will be back, before long, with more stories than ever – all piling up and waiting for me to unwrap them – with shiny photos and shiny words. It takes me awhile sometimes, but I’ll get there. It’s not a long trip, but gosh, will I come back more refreshed than ever! There is SO MUCH going on with us this summer still. We’re heading to Cape Cod once, and the kids are going twice. I’m meeting Tim Curry and seeing John Williams and sending Scarlet to a cabin with her best friend’s family for three days. We’ll head to New Jersey, via New York, and blast Sia radio on Pandora during the whole thing.
