Trips, Keywords, and I'm Sorry

This has been the week from... hell? I don't know. Maybe that's a bit much. It's just been a tough week. Kid #1 started high school on Tuesday, and all I wanted to do was curl into a fetal position and hug myself. How could my baby be in high school? Just how? And my actual baby? I looked at her and realized she's going into 5-day a week preschool.

I'M GETTING OLD! Okay, I take that back. I'm too young at heart to mean that.

Anyway, high school comes with homework. But this week also brought the return of soccer for Kid #2, return of Karate for Kid #1, and a very lonely, bored, energetic-because-no-one-is-playing-with-her Kid #3 (she doesn't start until next week).

But it's mostly over now, and I get to skip out on Kid #2 and #3's gymnastics tomorrow because I'll be at the BOOKMARKS festival in Winston-Salem, NC, with Elsie Elmore and Ryan Hill and a bunch of other really awesome authors. If you happen to be in the area, you should stop by, and if you do and you're the first person who says, "What a Charming display you have," then you'll win a bookmark or key chain of your choice!

Awesome, right?

Will that make up for me not posting a Charming Teaser Tuesday this week? I'm so sorry. Just with all the busy-ness I didn't have time. :-) Yes, I just made up a word. Authors are allowed.

So what do you all have planned for the weekend? Besides traveling to North Carolina to visit me? Tell me in the comments!
