Okay, I'm going to come right out and tell you how hard it is for me to leave.
Not that it's hard to go on vacation. That part is VERY EASY. Mr. A and I haven't gone on a real vacation in three years. You can imagine how desperate we are for the time away.
But letting the blog go dark for three weeks? Putting an auto-responder on my Authoress email accounts? It makes me twitch at even intervals.
I've got to do it, though. This blog--love it though I do--comes under the heading of "work" (okay, "career" sounds more romantic), so it doesn't need to tag along during my travels. It needs to stay home.
So. You probably want to know where I'm going, huh? Well, basically, we're driving and driving and driving to my parents' home in the northeast (yes, it's no secret that I'm a yankee). On the way, we're stopping in Virginia to visit Mr. A's aunt and uncle, WHO LIVE IN THE SAME TOWN AS JODI MEADOWS.
Yep. My alter ego and I are going to meet in person for the first time. Mark your calendars for this coming Tuesday, the official JODI AND AUTHORESS DAY.
I'm just a teensy bit excited. You know. Mildly.
Once I come down from my Jodi high, I'll be hanging with and hugging my mom and dad until it's time for Mr. A and me to leave for A WEEK AT THE SHORE.
I may never return.
After that? More time hanging with and hugging my mom and dad. Who live about ninety minutes from New York City.
So, yeah. I'm heading to the city for a day, where I'll be meeting Josh for lunch and getting a tour of his brand new agency! And yes, the red hat is coming with me.
Can you see the Josh-in-red-hat pictures on the horizon?
That's pretty much my June. I'm beyond excited. And also up to my elbows with laundry, cleaning, and oh-my-gosh-what-if-I-forget-something-important? (Like my red hat.)
I'll be back in the blogworld on June 27. Hold down the fort for me, will you? Despite the awesome line-up of the next three weeks of my life, I really do hate leaving.
It's that Type A thing rearing its head. Or something.
Anyway! 'Til we meet again! It feels good knowing you'll be here when I get back.
(Wait. You WILL be here when I get back...right?)
