I'm very discombobulated this summer. Love that word.
You see, usually my summer consists of packing up, dog and all, and spending six weeks or so at our place in the Canadian wilderness, otherwise known as The Muskokas, a beautiful area of Northern Ontario.
There, I sit on the dock, do a lot of writing, reading and walking. Take the occasional kayak across the lake. Play tennis. Visit with friends and family. It's an awesome place to be, and hubby and I love it.
This year however, we took the kids to St.Barth's for two weeks. And now I'm home, feeling like summer is already half over because I've had my vacation. But we're still heading up to Canada in a few weeks time. I imagine I'll be even more turned around by then!
But it won't end there. We'll come back home and proceed to pack up our son and take him up to Boston for his first semester at Berklee. After which, hubby and I will be officially empty-nesters.
And then I'm turning around and heading to St.Louis for the annual American Christian Fiction Writers Conference.
Is anyone else tired?!
So I don't have my normal routine going on this year. I have to somehow figure out how to navigate all this traveling back and forth, edit two manuscripts and get a synopsis and proposal done that I've been putting off for way too long already. In short, I don't deal well with change. This is throwing me off. But I'll survive. And hopefully I'll get the work done too!
What are your summer plans? Do you do the same thing each year or do you like to change it up?
