If I didn’t post on Monday, did Mondy still happen? We had our grandson, Turbo, Sunday and Monday, and he sure lives up to his nickname, LOL! It honestly takes two of us, plus Maggie, to watch him. He’s smart, funny, energetic, and overall, really well-behaved for a 19 month old. He likes to repeat words he hears, and I’m happy to report, Wizard and I did not send him home with any inappropriate words added to his vocabulary We really enjoyed him, but we were wiped out when he left, probably because he didn’t sleep well this, and was ready to play at 3:30 a.m. I woke up Wizard for that–after all I didn’t want him to miss out on the joys of babysitting. I’m super nice like that And Wizard was a good sport, he just laughed and said, “You might as well start to the coffee.”
Turbo’s parents had a great time at the concert in Vegas.
It was also Youngest Son’s bachelor weekend in Vegas with both his brothers and a couple of friends. I’m assuming they had fun too, but over the years, I’ve learned not to ask too much because they actually tell me, and then I have Mom Vision, which means I can reenact the scene in my head with a dozen bad outcomes. It doesn’t matter that they are standing there in front of me, clearly fine. Mom Vision, it’s a real thing
This book is getting to me. If I gather all my characters in one place, and blow them all up, is that considered murder? I mean it doesn’t count in fiction right? Even more frustrating is I keep losing time to work. I thought I’d be able to get back to the book yesterday, but Real Life had other ideas. Today will be better!
Heat and fires blew into Southern California. It’s going to be hot all week. But I just have to say this, while I complain about many things in California, our firefighters are amazing. They saved more homes when a huge fire broke out in Los Angeles, just like our homes were saved a little over a year ago. While humans cause a lot of the fires, it’s the heat and Santa Ana winds that make them so dangerous, and extremely hard to fight.
So that was some of my long weekend. How was yours?
