Yes, it really is. Once I start seeing back to school commercials and sales on paper and pencils, I know it's time to get back to the job at hand, which means, blogging.
So how I have been spending my time?
1. We went with the Tiny Dancer to Nashville to compete at our Nationals. Sadly, I am not a fan of Nashville. I didn't have a great time. There wasn't much to do with a teenager other than shop and go to a few attractions. Granted the Johnny Cash Museum was pretty good, but that was the highlight of the trip. The hotel (The Gaylord - FYI) was kept so dang cold that everything felt wet and damp. I went outside in the 100 degree heat just to dry off and warm up.
2. We took a weekend trip out to Boston where I spent a fun day in Salem. We did all the touristy things such as troll all the witch crafty stores and went to the museums. It was a good day. I had a Tarot reading and all in all it was good. I was told that my day job is killing my creative side so I need to look into making some changes. That was weird as who out there knows me as a writer or creative? I enjoyed the trip even if it was a little quick and way over commercialized.
3. The Tiny Dancer was accepted into a training program with the Joffrey Ballet Company. She's been with them a while now. I am ready for her to come home. I know its all in the reach for training, but I miss my girl. Horribly. She's learned many things, including how to do her own laundry, and how to have fun while doing the chore. She's a hoot.
She also sent me a few fun shots just to lighten my day.
School starts back up in 17 days. She has schedule pick up day next week. I need to get her re-fitted for jeans that fit, (Those Darn Legs!) and find some shirts for her that are not Twenty One Pilots. I think her entire wardrobe right now is TOP shirts, a bit too short jeans and Nike Pro Shorts. I will be broke soon.
But now that summer is coming to an end soon, I am back working and working hard. The third book in my A Howl in the Night series has been fully drafted and is now being edited. It will be in my publishers hands asap as I have several readers clamoring for it. I will be back blogging weekly now, so stay tuned.
Have a great week.
