for the first time in 8 years I am child-less again but this time it doesn't pain me. My eldest is trying out assisted living and my two little ones visit their grandparents. What does that mean for me? I can catch up on many things I didn't do during the winter. For example, I will start to work in my garden which is in great need (I didn't do much for the last 5 years).
Also, I'll be around the Internet to promote my free serialized online fantasy-novel "The Witches of Greenwitch" (also available in German). My first interview is up on Beth Revis Blog. She is a wonderful author and I am itching to read her first novel (a Sci-Fi that will be published sometime soon).
I will put a lot of time into my writing. Currently, my agent is at Bologna Children Book Fair and I want my new project to be nearly done when she's back.
But most of all, I will spend time with my husband. We haven't been a true couple for several years. Always, time is running short and work or children interfere. The last time we were able to do something without the kids was a birthday dinner. We had a marvelous three hours just to ourselves. I can't begin to contemplate what a whole week will do for our relationship.
Oh, and as a final treat, I found this truly hilarious video on the net and thought I'd share.
Enjoy life. It's wonderful!
