Rites of Passage

PaterosaSo I’ve been AWOL the last few days. With good reason, though. First a whirlwind tour to far flung parts of the country (well, at least to another province) to visit the in-laws at their little cabin in the woods.

And then?

Then I dropped my oldest baby off at camp.
First time ever for her to be away from home. Drive I’m bearing up under the strain.

I have to think she must be too, because I haven’t gotten a mom-come-get-me phonecall. This parenting business is not for the faint-hearted.

In other news, yesterday I received a form rejection with a personal note written on it from a well known editor who doesn’t mince words. She invited me to send along more of my work, so definitely a silver lining!
