I always have good intentions to get a bunch of stuff done over the school breaks. Take time off from my regular writing and regular schedule and get something different accomplished that I’ve been wanting to get done.
Then my daughter sits across from me in the living room texting, talking, and laughing. We play with the cats and act silly. She’s a junior in HS, a great kid, and a blast to be around. We have fun whether we are shopping for groceries or clothes.
My two sons have grown and moved out. How much longer am I going to have with her? Not much.
So, I’m going to take advantage of one of the few remaining school breaks and laugh with my daughter.
