My vacation is officially over. It’s a sad, sad affair. But I enjoyed my time off and since I’m not ready (or eager) to jump back into the real world, I’m going to re-live my glory days and share a few highlights of the past month.
**Edited three hundred and ninety-four pages. Twice.
Fallen Darkness, Book 2 of The Trihune Series is due out in September. Yeah! Stay tuned to 2unpubs of more information.
**Read seventeen books. Here are two of my favorites:
**Navigated a boat (and by navigate, I mean stood by the stern of the ship in my red garbage bag and hung on tight) through the high, rocky seas. . . or, you know, the Niagara River.
**Robbed a bank with my outlawing family, then stopped for a photo moment in a nearby saloon.
**Won a kayaking race . . . against my eleven year old niece . . . Sorry, Eleven. Next time I promise not to accidentally on purpose run into your boat, which almost tipped you over, just to get ahead.
**Lost a fight with a few mosquitoes.
**Ruined two pairs of shoes at Glen Arbor.
**Figured out that a mixture of Luriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion and Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Care creates a fantastic sunburn remedy. Or, perhaps it’s the large glass of wine and two Aleves…
**Confirmed my intense dislike of all things insect-y (even the pretty looking ones) at the Butterfly Conservatory.
**Survived the dunes with Ella. We proved our prowess by choosing one of the hottest days of our vacation to travel the 3.5 (roundtrip) miles to Lake Michigan. We’re bad assess.
**Learned that thirty-one days can absolutely fly by when I’m having fun.
It’s good to be back with you on a regular basis, 2unpub-ers. Did you do anything fun this summer?
