For the last two weeks, I’ve posted pictures of my trip to Japan. The reason I went to Iwakuni was to visit my daughter, her husband, and my first grandchild, Charlie Elise Cook.
My daughter’s husband is a Marine fighter pilot and had to leave for a training mission the morning after my younger daughter and I arrived, so we four girls enjoyed plenty of chick bonding. We watched movies, went shopping, visited the Kintai bridge, and indulged Mandy’s passion for renovation television shows (“The Property Brothers,” “Love It or List It,” “House Hunters,” and others).
I came away convinced more than ever that the 90’s called and want my house back. Tomorrow, Mel and I are going to shop for new flooring. After that’s installed, I plan to paint two porches, my office, a bathroom, and several doors.
I am now highly motivated to publish Sincerely Yours and finish Forever Yours, as well as rewrite The Guardian Trilogy, which will become The Xander Chronicles. My writing is paying for the refurbishing. (I really, really need new living room furniture, too. Right, Gayle?)
Speaking of The Guardian Trilogy, who better to photobomb Legacy than my own little legacy, Charlie. Too bad it put her to sleep.
