I have two more Atlantic article in the works before the summer hiatus — one comes out tomorrow, the other is in progress. I’m nearly done looking at new schools for Ian. I’m nearly done getting Jonah through an intense Junior year. I’m nearly done with chauffeuring to keyboard practice, track practice, drum practice, drama class, Kumon, yoga-social skills, and everything.
Nearly done with so much, and it’s so, so necessary. I’m badly need of a change in the routine.
Jonah’s college tours are in the hopper for the summer. We’re going to meander through the state colleges in the nearby states with built-in adventures. I do need to map out our route. I probably should turn the experience into an article. Sigh. Maybe I’ll skip it.
I need a new challenge. Maybe a book proposal. But first, I need a rest. And a return to good, old-fashioned blogging.
