Zippy Longtail and I are off to Realm Makers. Our journey began last Monday after work. Zippy took a half day from his job interpreting extraterrestrial satellite transmissions from the Very Large Array (VLA) satellites near Socorro, NM and came to my house so we could leave a bit early for Realm Makers.
We went to Phoenix for some pool time and good food. It was a working vacation for my husband and me. Zippy just laid by the pool and tanned his shell.
Thursday Zippy, my son, and I flew to Indiana to see my family. I have a nephew who’s my son’s age, so cousin time! Which also means time with my best friend (my sister), my parents, and my 93 year old grandfather. I’m also meeting up with some high school friends and a writing partner.
Friday, my sister, nephew, son, and I all went canoeing and exploring one of Indiana’s many amazing state parks. Seriously, Indiana has the best state parks.
Zippy and I are headed to Realm Makers on Wednesday where I assume my role as your friendly Volunteer Coordinator.
I’m so looking forward to seeing my other people, fellow Realmies! Safe travels for those attending!
