I am out of town taking care of another family member recovering from surgery. All is well, not to worry; she came through the long procedure well and is fairly comfortable, thanks to medication. (I am pretty sure BH is taking advantage of my absence to finish the basement. This should be interesting.)
I am kind of in limbo right now…. trying to develop the new story, but feeling unsure about so many elements… waiting for the last reader comments on my historical so I can do the last “polish” revision…. starting to think about the speeches and workshops I’m giving this fall, but not quite ready to write them yet…. still very confused about how it got to be August.
But you know what is helping to ground me? The NFL preseason has started. I don’t even care that the Evil Empire beat the Colts last night. Football means autumn means apples means bonfires means chili means color means rightness. Autumn is my time of year and it’s coming. I swear.
Back to my chicken soup and TLC duties!
PS – I’ll give the hint I promised for the TWISTED teacher contest next week, when I get home.
