Here’s what happened during that time –
My kids went to camp.
I tried some new medicine for migraines that gave me a migraine (not to mention made me a little crazy).
My husband went out of town.
I realized the house was so quiet that all I could hear was myself think, which I didn’t find peaceful; I found nerve-wracking.
Wrote 1,000 words on my novel
Did zero housework
Forgot to feed my kids’ fish and guinea pig while they were at camp
Found out my mom broke her femur and shoulder on her first day of vacation
Learned mom’s ambulance broke down twice on two separate trips with her in it. Our family is snake bit, my father says, which means unlucky (not that I need to explain that).
Played tennis and lost
Got to see Alan Jackson in concert on the lake
Got highly annoyed with a friend and a vice versa
Wrote three articles; procrastinated three more
Clapped when my daughter won "Camper of the Week"
Explained to my son what the word "instigator" means, when he brought home the "Instigator of the Week" award
Cried remembering a teenager who died in a plane crash
Water skied until my legs hurt
Texted and called my daughter a dozen time until I determined she’d been kidnapped
Learned her phone had been stolen
Talked on the phone with my sister for two hours and realized how much I miss her
Took my Girl Scout troop to Savannah, survived a storm and made lots of memories
Watched taffy being made
Wished I had more time to spend with my middle daughter
Shared some laughs with a good friend
Made it home safe and sound
Learned my son’s friend fell on the concrete and hit his head and is the hospital in serious condition
Laughed as my son tried and spit out the sour cream and onion cricket I bought him as a joke
Covered his horrible case of poison ivy with Calamine lotion
Tucked the kids in and promised to read to them tomorrow
Pondered the meaning of life
Ate some leftover boiled peanuts and vowed to blog more, write more, clean more and love more
All in a week’s time …
