Summer break

My dear blogging buddies,

I went for a walk with Karen and as always we talked about our kids and summer vacation and dogs and writing and blogging and what-not.  And somewhere around three quarters of the way through our walk, Karen asked me if I was going to take the summer off from blogging.  A summer vacation. 

I was gob-smacked.  What an idea.  I hadn’t even considered that.  Was it possible?  Could I?  I did take that week off when I was away with Jenny.  But a whole summer?  And in the second breath…why not?  Friday, Will writes his last exam, and then school is out, he is off.  My daughter is on summer break from her Masters Program.  And think of all the writing I’d get done on my manuscript without the excuse of blogging to gobble up my writing time. 

I’ve thought about it and thought about it and I’ve decided, yes!  I am going to take the summer off and will be back in September when school starts.  September 3rd. 

I hope all of you have a wonderful Summer, full of fresh squeezed lemonade and BBQ’s and fishing in the lake and wading in the ocean.  And for me I am hoping I get a huge hunk of my new manuscript completed and that I get to spend good time with my kids and Don and eat lots of yummy foods and not gain any weight!

Lots of love, Meg xo
