Work, Vacation, and Death
So, I've been kind of quiet for a month or so. I fell behind on some of my goals, but I'm not too upset over it. Life got in the way as it so often does. I still plan on getting my book done before December.
Work has been crazy. We’ve been opening several stores on top of preparing for Black Friday and Christmas. For part of this time we were down my top player because she was on maternity leave, throwing six weeks into chaos. She'll be back this week, so that should unbind my hands ‘til she has her next baby. She's at the bottom of the bunk beds here:
Then my grandmother died. I was worried her funeral would be sad but, in truth, it was filled with joy. The night we buried her, the stars were brightened by our laughter for my family loves telling overly exaggerated stories. Doris would have absolutely loved it! You can read more about her on my Creative Shout-out.
A week after the funeral, my wife and I went on a much needed vacation to the Riviera Maya. We wrote while we were there but mostly swam and visited the “cocodrilos” outside our building. We had a blast and will definitely go back! If you ever get the chance to visit, you should! Do not miss visiting the Mayan ruins at Chichén Itzá. They will rock your world!
Below is what we woke up to every morning!
With all that behind me, I have a few weeks to catch up on my manuscript. That will be doable once my right-hand woman returns to work, allowing me time to iron out the remaining kinks in my book. WISH ME LUCK!
Be at peace and keep writing. You can only get better.
