Delightful Distractions!

As I said last week, my two young grandsons are visiting.  Their mom and dad too.

It's lots of fun having them around.  The kids, one almost 4 and the other almost 3, are full of energy and ideas.  They want to play nearly all the time when they're awake. Yesterday, I got locked into the kitchen "forever" at one point, or so I was told.  Toys have a habit of littering nearly the entire floor as they build unidentifiable structures out of Lego blocks and empty soup containers and more.

Guess how much work I'm getting done.  Yes, I have naptime to myself but I can't really dig into anything that requires ongoing attention.  Instead, I'm working on plotting and some new ideas-- a good thing but not as productive as usual.

My husband amused the guys with some toy indoor drones while I hid away for a short while to write this post. 

And this morning I have to attend an online seminar for one of my publishers, Harlequin Nocturne.  I've made sure the adults in the household are aware of my temporary disappearance.

The only problem is that the visit is short, as they all tend to be.  They're leaving later today to return home to Indiana

Yes, I know, I'll be able to dig right in and start working again on the projects I've had to set temporarily aside.

But you can be sure my mind will still be on having the little guys around and how much fun it was--no matter how much time and energy they took!

Who could blame you for giving them all your attention. It sounds like a fun visit for all.
