Crazy fun weekend! We had Wizard’s family retirement party Saturday — it was a whirlwind and a blast. That was the last of Wizard’s parties. It’s actually funny that Wizard had three different parties since he HATES being the center of attention. He fought me on the family party until I flat out told him, “Tough luck, this is important to me, the kids, and his family, and it’s not fair for him to ruin it for us.” That worked, and he stopped most of his grumbling. Plus I promised him that Bailey would be here too — bribery always works He pitched in Friday afternoon and Saturday and helped get the house and everything ready. Then he had a great time. This week, he goes into work Monday and Tuesday to finish up stuff and he’s done. He is one happy man!
And now, I must revise EXPOSING THE HEIRESS all week to hopefully have it done Monday or at least next week. And then get back to the Wing Slayers. I’ve laid out my writing plan for the next year and really want to hit my goals. I’m going to be taking time off to spend with Wizard, but the other side of the coin, he’ll be around to help with chores to free up more writing time. It should work out.
I also wanted to take a second to talk about BLB (youngest son). He just got a big raise at work and is doing fantastic. His accounting degree will be finished in Dec, and while he’s been doing that, he’s been working full time AND he passed all his tests to get his EA license (to sign tax returns). After the freak accident three years ago that damaged his leg and destroyed the career path he was on for law enforcement, he sucked it up and figured out how to deal. Wizard and I so proud of him. We are proud of ALL three boys, the other two for their own achievements, and for standing behind their brother we he needed them. And right now, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Life will have it’s challenges for BLB but he has the tools and strength to handle it. And while people say lovely things to Wizard and I about being his parents, in the end, it was BLB’s choice to man up and deal, and to work so hard through pain and challenges, toward a new goal. I think that says a lot more about him than us
And I am such a mom, LOLOL!!! I’m done, really!
