Priority Crunch! by DL Larson

Not much will deter me from writing every day. But my writing life and life as a Grammie have collided as of today - BIG time! My son and his family moved in with us this morning. This means my three month old grandson, Colton, has nudged my writing schedule right off the list of things to do! I've spent the morning coddling my grandson, feeding my grandson, cleaning out a cupboard in the kitchen for his bottles and such, rocked him, diapered him, smoochied him lots and it looks as if the afternoon will be more of the same.

What is a grammie to do? I'm reminded of that old saying,
"Quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep;I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep."

My son's family will only be here for a month or two and already I'm fretting over an empty house once they leave. So again, what's a grammie to do? I plan on spending as many precious moments as possible with my grandson, son and lovely daughter-in-law!

Oh, and to all who know me well ... I have also promised to share Colton with others!! Really, I will!

Sorry this blog has nothing to do with writing, but everything to do with life! And that's okay. The days ahead will be fodder for stories yet to be told.

I'm heading back to the rocking chair! Gramps and Colton are watching the WGN noontime weather. And so it begins ...

Til next time ~
