From the road...

Well, we made it to Portland. Phwew. That was a LONG drive. Even split into 2 chunks. The boys did really well though, so that's a relief. I spent all afternoon and night entertaining them alone while hubby went to meetings. They are both sleeping now (thank heavens) and I'm sitting here staring at my computer. My eyes are burning, I'm exhausted, and I can hardly think straight. I should go to sleep. Instead, I'm blogging and then going to read. I would try to write, but I'm pretty sure anything that came out would be drivel. Much like this blog post.

So the moral of the story is that you should get other people to do guest posts when you're travelling and still want to do blog posts. I will keep that in mind when I leave for my even longer trip to Florida next Thursday.

Yeah, you heard my right. My whole family is going to FLORIDA (courtesy of my awesome parents). DISNEY WORLD. HARRY POTTER LAND (or whatever it's really called)! Daytona Beach! For 10 DAYS! That trip is NOT a work trip. We just get to go be together and have fun the whole time. I am SO excited (even though it will be crazy busy and murderously hot). But when you're trying to get ten people's schedules to coincide, scheduling can be tricky, so July is when it could happen. The point is, I will make sure and line up some guest posts for that trip, because I pretty much guarantee my Internet time will be slim to none. Even though I know you're dying to read more awesome, rambling posts such as this one.

What does this have to do with writing? Um, nothing. Sorry. Just keeping you posted on my whereabouts, because I know ya'll were dying to make sure we were here safe and sound and somewhat sane. Check, check, and check. I promise to have a meaningful post about writing soon.

In the meantime, hope you're having a great week! I'm off to read.

Tell me (because I always love to find out), what are you reading right now?

Melody said...

Currently reading: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, by Stephenie Meyer, courtesy of the generous Sara B. Larson (no seriously - that's what I'm reading!)
Just finished: The Kings of Clonmel (John Flanagan), Court Duel (Sherwood Smith), and Crown Duel (Sherwood Smith).

I want to go to Harry Potter World! Have soooo much fun! I am currently reading 3 books. Eat Love Pray, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and of course Breaking Dawn... again!

Carolyn V. said...

Oh! how fun! I'm reading the Adoration of Jenna Fox. So far it's excellent! =)

Sara B. Larson said...

Melissa - Ah, that's right. I'm so excited, I will definitely let you all know how it is! (if the line isn't still 9 hours long to get in in 2 weeks when we go, I don't think my boys would wait that long.)

Melody - I hope you like it!

Kelly - What a broad range of books, I love it. :)

Carolyn - Is it good? I'd really like to read that one. Can't wait to hear about your week at the conference, too!

Lucky you! I've never been to Disney & I'm a HUGE Disney fan. Have fun!!

Sara said...

I'm reading two books right now. I never do that, but I forgot my book at work one day and I needed something to read at home! So, I'm reading Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, and Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card.

Have fun in Florida!!
