Something goes right with the world!
Go check in on Larissa Ione and congratulate her! Girlfriend just sold to Red Sage's "Secrets" series!!! Way To Go, Larissa!
Okay, I'm lazy. One, I don't want to blog again, but more importantly, I don't want to push Larissa's great news down the blog page or it'll get missed. That one sounds highly noble, so I'll stick with that. :) (But seriously, SOOOO happy for Larissa!)
So, I did several blog stops this morning as I attempted to wake up and make sense. Moo has been on a psuedo-vacation all week and finally goes back to school tomorrow. I am miraculously feeling pretty good but as you can imagine, no writing has really taken place. It just doesn't happen amidst all the mommy-mommying. And that's okay. I've had a lot of stirring ideas and thoughts and I imagine I'll be able to hit the pages hard tomorrow.
Today, we're going out with Moo's best friend to give them some playtime so us Moms can get a little breathing room. This is new to me. I've never done the play-date thing. This sucks for Moo, I know, but what is so commonplace these days is laughably ridiculous to the previous era of childrearing. You know, the one my mom raised me in? Her idea of a playdate was locking the kids outside so they'd play and she could clean the house without interruption. We were only allowed to come in to pee. Grudgingly. Then again, there were six of us. And we had a yard. And a neighborhood of kids to play with. Moo has no sibs, no yard and no neighborhood.
Hello, have we met? I am Crappy Mommy.
So, I am about to get over my fear of crowds and people who I don't know and wander out with my more-socially-adept-than-me autistic child into the land of Play Dates.
God have mercy on my soul.
(I'll let y'all know how it goes!)
