I am running away.

Seriously. I am awol for Sunday and Monday.

My good friend, HB, has offered me her empty house if I balance the chemicals in her pool and water a few plants. Works for me. Dumping a bottles of chlorine and muriatic acid into a pool and spritzing plants in exchange for some quiet writing time. Someone else will have to deal with swim team, water polo and music. Someone else will get to play with our out-of-town company. Someone else will have to give Dorothy the Dog her antibiotics.

For two solid days, I'm hanging out with a bookful of characters who need revising.

Better yet why don't you let your out of town company do all of it for you. They can take the kids to all of thier events, get them ready, and just for kicks take them to the beach along with a 5 month old baby. All of this on the day before they leave. This sounds like it would be the perfect answer to all of your problems. In fact this is actually how it happened. :) Don't worry we love you any way and we are just chalking this up to hoping maybe since you are woking on the book perhapes we could get a dedication page out of all of this at the very least.

Dear Not-So-Famous Niece: I think you will become more and more famous if you keep posting blog comments! :) Thank you for all your help. You deserve much more than one, single dedication page. Perhaps a charater named after you? But will it be a good character or an evil character? Pretty or ugly? Blog poster or quiet reader? Wait and see....

p.s. Don't forget to wish your mother a happy b'day!
