Bribery isn’t always wrong…is it?

My plan for getting writing done while away this week is to put DD down for a nap, and then take DS out to the little coffee shop in town.  The coffee shop is also a bakery, which all plays into my plan…

I have purchased a stack of colouring/activity books, a Cars 2 sticker book, new markers, new pencil crayons…all in the hopes that DS can entertain himself for at least one hour while I try and get some writing done.  I have also promised him a yummy treat every day at the coffee shop as well.  We’ll see if he can remain silent for longer than 5 minutes…

Spring Break!

Well, yesterday spring break officially started! DS has the next 2 weeks off school.

And I’m about to give the DH a wonderful gift…silence…for 5 days…

My mom and I are taking the kids for a week to a quaint fishing village on Lake Erie.  My parents have a little place on the lake, and the kids love it, even though it’s not warm enough for the beach (we’re in Canada) the change of pace is wonderful.  It’s a charming town that holds many childhood memories for me, as we’d go there every summer.  Everything is a little more laid back, people are friendlier…and everything seems easier there in a way.

This little trip is also very timely for me since my full was sent off to Harlequin yesterday.  Honestly every time I think about that (which is at least once an hour) my stomach feels like it’s about to eject its contents.  Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse, a really long response where you allow yourself to daydream about ‘the call’ or the really short wait, where you wonder if your manuscript was so horrible that they only needed five minutes to decide it wasn’t good enough.

Hopefully this excursion will help me get my mind off things…especially since the only wireless is at one of the coffee shops in town.

I am bringing my laptop and will be working away on my other manuscript.
