That date on the calendar.
The one my kids circled.
Summer vacation is right around the corner and I can barely contain my excitement. Of course, there are a few things I'm not particularly looking forward to this summer. So, I thought I'd put together a little list of a few things with which you all might relate. I call this ...
Not having to set an alarm for 5:45 am. (I am so not a morning person!)
|I'll see you again someday, Jamie. I promise!|
Getting to vacation at the lake, enjoying the blue skies and sunshine, dipping my toes in the water, and eating s'mores around the campfire.
Sharing one small cottage bathroom with my entire family including my teenaged daughter who packs an entire suitcase full of her bathroom "essentials".

Sunny days filled with lots of outdoor activities or just relaxing on the deck with my puppy.
Chasing said puppy all over the field behind our house because she has spotted yet another squirrel that she MUST catch.
|This is Macy guarding the deck from evil squirrels|
Going to New York City for the RWA National Conference and getting to see some of my lovely Heartwarming pals!
I can't really think of a con to this one except that not everyone will be there this year and I only get one weekend of non-stop giggles with my roomie Carol Ross.
My third book in the Chicago Sisters series, The Hardest Fight, comes out July 1st!
|Oh, I love this cover!!|
Ah! This is the last book in the series. Better start writing something new!
Summer vacation lasts ten glorious weeks. I should be able to write a ton of books in that time, right?
Summer vacation only lasts ten weeks. I NEED MORE TIME!
Well, there you have it. My pros and cons for summer vacation. What are you looking forward to this summer? What are you dreading?
