Sometimes when you're a mom, your life just gets incredibly busy and crazy. Occasionally you can guess when this madness will descend, and others it just bites you in the rear end. This week was a little of both.
I had kids over for end-of-summer playdates several days. My own children were unexpectedly attention-craving, we had my daughter's birthday party to plan and execute, Brownie Scouts had a pool party....argh! Basically, any plans I made were quickly morphed into something else. Did I mention that both my dryer and my air conditioner needed repairman?
I did manage to write during this craziness, but I was catching my moments when I could: in the middle of the night, waking up with insomnia; while my kids were in the pool and I was at poolside; in the car at stoplights. Was it exactly the quality writing time I wanted? No. But I felt better when I did it and it quickly added up, too.
School starts back next week and with any luck I can get back into more of a rhythm.
