So, here's Wishing you and yours
Family Fun @ Formula 1
If you're not a Formula 1 fan, you probably won't understand my enthusiasm, but this was an event I'd been looking forward to since the end of the season last year. And since we have our very own Formula 1 track here in Austin, Texas - Circuit of the Americas - we knew we had to be part of it.
While I hadn't seen a Formula 1 race until the end of the season last year, my youngest son and my husband convinced me to sit down and watch the race in Austin on television. I was hooked, but that's not surprising since I'm a huge fan of plenty of sports. For whatever reason, this one keeps me on the edge of my seat.
After the end of last season, we decided we would look into options to go this year, so we bought our tickets and we waited patiently for the big day to finally arrive.
Honestly, it doesn't happen to me often. And the rare times it does, I can usually shift my focus to something else and I can move through it.
Not this time.
I haven't written anything in four weeks. That's an eternity for me. I've tried everything. Music. Reading. Movies. Television. Anything and everything in an attempt to spark my imagination.
Unfortunately, there's a huge black curtain between me and my creativity. It's hiding all of my past and future characters from me. They've completely disappeared!
Not even Brantley Gilbert can help me now, and trust me, I've got him on repeat. (It's no secret that I love that man)
But, I'm holding out hope. Eventually something will be there. Right?
I seriously hope so.
On June 9th, we lost our sweet Harley. And one week ago, on August 10th, we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy, Zeus.
The loss is astounding, the pain overwhelming. The tears still fall, my heart still aches.
Originally, Zeus wasn't supposed to come home with us. We had been looking for a German shepherd puppy so Harley would have a friend and came across a breeder here in Texas who had recently had a litter of puppies. I noticed Zeus almost instantly, but the family was excited about a white one, so we actually decided to get his brother. I think my heart was always set on Zeus.
