Today I don’t really have any sense of direction of what I should be writing so I am going to take some guidance from Mark David Gerson (The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write) “Rule #7
If you’re feeling stuck, keep your pen moving. Write anything!” So here I go, I apologize in advance for any grammatical errors or nonsensical stuff that is spewing from my brain.

It’s summertime and unfortunately the living isn’t quite that easy…yet. The boy is out of school and has abandoned us for great-grandma’s house (sad face). I’m supposed to be taking advantage of this time but I can’t help feeling kind of sad inside for the old days. My parents and I were looking at old pictures of him when he was a toddler, pathetic I know but we couldn’t help ourselves. He’s the only kid so I think we should be allowed a little leeway for being crazy. Sigh, he was so cute and now…well let’s just say I miss the old days when he couldn’t form sentences and was under 3ft tall.

We’ve also had a change in our work schedule so it’s taking some getting used to. I didn’t realize how much I had gotten used to one set schedule until it got changed up.  The sad thing is I’m not even the one being majorly impacted but it’s still messing me up here at home, the domino effect you know what mean? It’s okay though, it’s all for the greater good… I still miss having dinner with my family but you do what you got to do.

So in an effort to get some family memories (whether they like it or not) I’m seeing a road trip in our future. Grandma called Aunty up in Canada and we’re getting it set up. Load up the Mini and let’s hit the road. Of course we’ll be avoiding random gas stations that are out in the middle of nowhere (too much television) and we already have our passports. Unfortunately, not everyone (sorry ginger) can go so it won’t be a “family” trip but at least I will get to torment the boy and isn’t that what a family trip is really about? 🙂
