I'm leaving tomorrow for two weeks so as you can expect, I'm running around getting everything ready. Laundry and cleaning will take up the bulk of today -- cleaning because I'm a good wife and figure at the very least I should leave my husband with a clean house -- and sadly, I don't think writing is going to happen.
I had high hopes yesterday that I'd start at least one of the final chapters, but life keeps getting in the way. Plus it's a thousand degrees out. At 6pm, when I tried for the zillionth time to open the document, Owen was curled up on a frozen towel, cuddling an ice cube. I'm not exaggerating. I tried to get a picture but our neighbor distracted him by opening their door just as I aimed the camera, and then the ice cube melted.
That said, I'm really excited about my trip. Not only will I see lots of friends & family, I'll be meeting several online friends. Amy and I are meeting in Chicago, then Rachel, Natasha, Jenna (who I know, obviously, but she doesn't know the other ladies) and I are getting together at a small Absolute Write get-together. Yay!!
The writing will have to happen when it happens.
