Yes, it has been a few weeks, and yes there has been a lot going on, but I am here, still chugging away at life. We managed to get my parents here, managed to get the dogs in the kennel and managed to get to Disney World for a week away from the rigors of being a spouse to a deployed member. We stayed at the Art of Animation, and let me tell you, it was a wonderful resort. The coolest thing, the pool had underwater speakers– I shit you not!
Then we came home to rain, rain, and more rain. A repeat of the 4th of July. It has rained so much our roof is leaking. So added to the super squirrel secret project which is no longer super, squirrel, or secret, we have to have an entire wall ripped out. Nice, the deployment hits just keep on coming.
As a result of the Disney trip, an unexpected epilepsy diagnosis (yep, my son had to get his life changing deployment diagnosis), and the leaky roof, I have been incognito on my blog. But I have not been incognito with my writing. I have two guest blog appearances coming up on NexGen Military Spouse, I have another short story being published by Chicken Soup for the Soul, and I have started my memoir.
