Mon Dieu! Here I was thinking I was Superman and could manage it all.

How wrong I was!

My family from England has come to stay for two weeks, and then our family is going away for a week into the wilderness. I thought I could blog my truncated summer schedule, but I can't even do that. I'm behind on my Marvelous Middle Grade Monday reading. Finally, to compound matters, I can barely read anyone else's blog, let alone comment.

So, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I've decided to dim the lights for three weeks. After all, what little time I have has to be devoted to my work-in-progress, right?

I'll be back at the beginning of August, refreshed and reinvigorated, just about the same time as Don Vito returns from Sicily.

See you all then.


  1. Have a good vacation. This summer has been very busy for some reason. Lots of people are taking breaks so don't feel guilty.

  2. Very understandable. Sometimes some things have to go. I look forward to your return.

  3. Boy howdy I hear you. Enjoy the family time and see you later!

  4. Family from England? What kind of mafioso are you? Have a good break!

  5. Breaks are so important. Hope you get everything done you need to, along with being able to relax.


Youse got something to say? Well, say it then. (The Don and I will shoot you... a personal reply, that is. But if we can't find your e-mail, we'll just reply in the comment box.)
