HB: Yeah. We have.
SPAL: As I reported last week, I hid in my house for a few days. The Glowstick dominated our territory.
SPAL: Yes. But Mummsy fell down the stairs trying to keep the Glowstick from falling. She hurt her left hand and bruised up her right leg, It’s still a little swollen down by the ankle and her hand is in a contraption.
HB: But it didn’t keep her down.
SPAL: No. It didn’t.
Monday, they went to The Ringling Museum. From what we heard the Glowstick loved the statutes and the giant murals. Even though Daddy-O said he wouldn’t make it through without a meltdown, he did.
After that, they went and had lunch with Grandpa and Auntie Summy-sum-a-lum.
Tuesday, Mummsy and the Glowstick went to The Florida Aquarium. The little guy had a blast. But he did have a meltdown toward the end. He didn’t want to leave.
Wednesday, they went to the park. But it was too wet for the Glowstick to run around.
So they went to McDonald’s and he ate a biscuit, some eggs, and sausage. After, he played in the Play Place for a good hour. He had another meltdown when it was time to go.
HB: Yeah. And the way The Salon scheduled her, all she could work on was other peoples’ edits.
SPAL: And her housework.
HB: But she did visit some blogs.
SPAL: The best time to do that is when the little guy was totally zonked out.
HB: Which wasn’t much.
HB: Well, I had fun. He’ll back next week for two days. I can hardly wait.
SPAL: But Mummsy won’t get anything done when he’s here.
HB: Well, she did say she would try writing at the McDonald’s Play Place even if its for an hour.
SPAL: But she needs to finish Killer Stilettos. It will be noisy and full of other little Glowsticks.
HB: She will.
HB: You mean, she’s written a couple of endings?
SPAL: She always does, stupid.
SPAL: Anyway, she admires the Mommy Writers out there and is in awe at how they can write and take care of their families. And today is Alex J. Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writer's Group. It’s a great group for writer’s who get to feeling like our Mummsy does right now. I would say Mummsy feels like pulling out her hair out right about now.
SPAL: Yeah. Well, our sister Tinkerbell better get her act together for this little guy. Poor thing is going from house to house for now.
How do the Mommys out there do it?
Lots of licks!
