Taking off

This weekend we’ll be celebrating the American way of life with friends, barbeques, four-wheeling and campfires, while reminding our children (and ourselves) to remember the men and women who and served and sacrificed their lives to preserve that way of life.

I’ll also be disconnecting. While I might sneak peeks at my email and Twitter while nobody’s looking, my family has requested a few days with the wife and mom, minus the author. It can be very hard to separate the two when you work from home because the work is always there. But a week from Monday, Yours To Keep releases and I have a deadline nine days after that. It’ll be a computer-intensive time, so I’m going to take a few days off to hang with my guys and put a few miles on my four-wheeler. Time to get a little mud on the tires!

And speaking of tires…

Somebody busted a rear axle, so this is how we’re starting our “vacation”. Waiting for Fedex to bring a new one for my husband’s machine. Since we’ve already had to rebuild the top end on his snowmobile and replace the fuel line assembly on the truck, I’m afraid to let him touch anything at this point.

Anyway, I hope everybody has a great weekend, whether it’s a holiday for you or not, and I’ll see you on Tuesday!
