This past week I went camping with my four children,
without my husband.
Some people called me brave.
Others thought me crazy.
But something amazing happened amid the late night campfires shared with good friends,
and the lazy afternoons on the sun kissed beaches of Killbear.
I laughed at my children's silly jokes.
Raced my daughter to the comfort station.
Even pretended that my flashlight was a light-saber.
And I was no longer just the chore weilding,
discipline cracking, dish washing mother.
Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life,
I fell in love with my children again.
I wasn't brave or crazy...
just really blessed.
And I guess that is what a good vacation is all about. :)
As for my ROW80 goals...
didn't do very well there.
Only got one of my three chapters edited this week.
Not really a surprise considering there was a lot of relaxing going on.
This week I am aiming again for editing three chapters,
and studying two chapters from Jeff Gerke's "Plot versus Character".
Plus I would like make up a comma cheat sheet,
(comma's and I don't get along,,, See?!?)
Here's hoping that the rest of my ROW80 comrades are doing well. :)
