Yes, people do this!!!
I found out the other day that my daughter, LuLu, will be competing in
New York in March. She (we) have six
months to prep for this trip, choreograph routines, save money (see my frugal
living blog!) and just in general anticipate the trip. As these things are in the forefront of my
mind, Lu is planning tourist stops.
“We have to go to the history museum, the World Trade Center
memorial site, the Today show windows…” and the list goes on and on. No sister, you’ll be dancing.
Did I mention I author a frugal living blog as well? Yeah.
That’s what I’ll be doing for the next six months. You see, I am a single mother. My dream is to make a living writing, so I
slave tirelessly behind the laptop screen while kiddo is dancing. My day job is that of a nurse. The hours are long and difficult, and on any
given day I could be exposed to tuberculosis,
chemical toxins, crazy family members,
or violent psychiatric patients.
It’s a glam job. Aren’t you
So behind the glowing screen of my trusty netbook is where I
prefer to be working any given day.
