These last two weeks have been very hectic! First off, I went on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas for a destination wedding. It was only four days, but they were action packed. My mistake was trying to keep up with the younger generation, even though I don’t think of myself as being old.

The week before the cruise, I spent time preparing for the trip; packing, cleaning, holding mail and the paper delivery. Oh, and what about my writing? I had to squeeze that in when I could.

When I got back, there were a deluge of appointments for repair and doctors but I did manage to finish the first draft of my upcoming book. I also made an appointment to meet with a webpage developer to help promote my books.

Back to the wedding. It was fantastic. The bride and groom saw to every detail and I have nothing but high praise for them. When we arrived at Orlando, I saw this gigantic cruise ship, with tons of kids running around and I said to myself…uh oh. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids, but it’s been a while since I’ve been around so many youngsters.

However, due to the wedding, every moment had been planned out and the ship did offer adult only areas. But I am always very aware of my surroundings and I now have lots of material for future books.

The flooding in our area of Texas has been of great magnitude but I feel blessed that our damage is minimal to what some others have experienced. It is true when they say, everything is bigger in Texas.

It feels good to be back to normal and will concentrate on the second draft of the book!
