I am kind of loving this song right now. It’s moving my plot bunnies around, and we all know how much help I need in that area these days. I’m up to three books plotted and have zero interest in finishing any of them. Oy. The stress needs to stop. I can’t not write, and it sucks tossing out my 2k a day.
Okay, so–Atlanta. I know you guys were wondering why I went. It was sudden. Real sudden. Painful we’re leaving at 5am sudden. I seem to live there some weeks, which sucks since you all know how I feel about high, high things and air planes. *shudders*
Are you ready to hear this? Are you sure you’re ready? Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Mom loves My Little Ponies and Webkinz. Y’all know this. That she is like the grand high mega super collector of these things?
She heard a van would be making a stop outside of ATL. If you attended the “event,” you got up to five codes per person (virtual van for your pet to drive) plus got to play games to win prizes. I know you’re thinking we used DD as our cover, but no. She was at the lake house. So it ended up being me and mom and Shawn, bobbing in sea of eager children while trying to get as many codes as we could.
It wasn’t a bad way to spend the day. I hated the drive. It’s three hours there and then three more home. It was pretty awesome to spend that time with my mom and brother, though. I forget how much fun we have together.
We got lost, found our favorite BBQ joint in the middle of freaking nowhere, had a run in with some molten corn nuggets, and laughed a lot. It was a good day. It restored my faith in several things.
It also made me think sometimes love and laughter, and family, can get you through most anything.
