Summer has been crazy crazy. We've been out of town off and on since school got out. I started revising a book, then went out of town, decided to revise a different book when I got back, then went out of town again, and finally decided that it just ain't happenin' this summer! Last summer I wrote a book in six weeks and this summer I can't even keep up with my house and kids.
I was feeling bad about it every time we packed our bags to visit family or go camping...until I realized that this is what summer's about for my little kids. And they need me. And I need them. Let's face it, I will always be able to write, but my kids will not always be little. They won't always want to talk to me and they certainly won't need me to feed them, dress them, wash them, bandage their owies, etc. for the rest of their lives. As of right now, it's for the best.
I can't wait to jump back into the writing world when school starts, but until then...keep it up, keep it real, and keep it goin'.
Have a great summer!
