Sunday Summary: A Good Week

I had all my initial goals for the week done by Wednesday morning. Then, I got through a round of bonus goals + 1(I did yet another scene for Nowhere to Run). And that was with taking Monday off from writing.

Saturday we had a family reunion in Ohio(just over the border at Pymatuning, so not a really far trip. Last year’s was in Altoona, still in the same state, but a longer drive). On the way there, we stopped at the spillway, part of the Pymatuning Reservoir, so the kids could see the ducks walking on the fish.Β 

Then, we went on to the campground where the reunion was being held. We ate lots of food, got a picture of everyone, then went swimming. Of course, once the girl gets in the water, it doesn’t matter how long she’s in there, we have to negotiate to get her back out eventually. Hit the playground for a little bit, then went over to one of the cabins the family rented. They did a game for the kids of searching for coins in sawdust. We finally left, stopped at Burger King for dinner, then got groceries and finally came home. In the midst of all that, I finished reading another book for the week. πŸ™‚

This has been a busy month, so far. I’m ready for it to settle down, but next month won’t be much better. Which reminds me, I really need to send out the invite for the girl’s 11th birthday party, since there’s less than a month until that. Gah! How did that happen?
