Just Another Manic Monday

Today is the start of what is going to be one heck of a week. For one thing, I had 4 hours of fitful sleep. I am a part of a kids camp this week, so I have to be out the door by 7 a.m. I was up at 4:45 making muffins, tea, and coffee. What does that have to do with kids? … Well, I have the best job there because I am in charge of the "Parent's Cafe." I serve mocha frappachinos (I can't spell that) and muffins to parents while their children go wild. Set up is 7:45 at Codorus State Park in PA and it starts at 8:45, done by around 12:30. It is several hours of intense "play" really. My job is to talk to people and make them feel welcome. Not really a hard job. But it is constant for several hours. Running on four hours of less than restful sleep I am already tired. But it is what it is. My kids LOVE this camp. (Even my 18 yr old) It's a blast! The two oldest are involved with the leadership, and the youngest plays all day in the 4th grade group. I will have fun today but I will also crash later. This happens ALL WEEK.

Release day is next MONDAY!!! Can you believe it?

Also today…. My FIRST STOP in my Blog Tour for Names Can Never Hurt Me on Joyfully Jay. (*Note, the link may or may not take you to the right place. I linked it to Wade kelly posts on Joyfully Jay, but my post for today is not up yet at 6:30 am.) On Joyfully Jay, I share with you WHY THIS TITLE, WHY THIS BOOK.

  1. What a beautiful song, I'm not really into music so I had to look it up on youtube but that's lovely in it's simplicity.
