On the Fly--From One Crazy Week to Another
Jax and Barb on the Flying Fish
Logan with Elmo
Jax, Logan and me
Funny how when you hang with young kids, you become a kid again yourself. At least I did. I even braved two roller coasters with Logan and the Merry-go-Round with Jax. No, I'm not scared of the Merry-go-round, but anything that goes in a circle makes me green. My favorite distraction at Sesame Place was a little water park thingee with fountains that shot out every where. We didn't have bathing suits on, but Logan, Jax and I waded through and got wet anyway. It was sweltering that day and I don't do well in the heat. I welcomed the chance to cool off. The biggest joy? Seeing and hearing Logan and Jax squeal an giggle with glee as they raced though the fountains getting soaked.
They left for home on Saturday morning. I miss them already. I really miss my sister. (waving to Barb) Luckily, I am too busy to dwell on the quiet. Line edits for EVERYBODY LOVES EVIE arived on Friday. I spent the weekend attacking. The plan is to wrap them up today so that I can plunge back into my latest western ASAP. In addition to my manuscripts, I have two weeks to prepare for Heather Graham's Writers For New Orleans Workshop weekend. I'm speaking on a panel and also performing in a show. I have a script and songs to memorize and a workshop to prepare. From one crazy week to another. Not that I'm complaining.
