Writing Retreat Envy

Yes, I must admit, as I read the posts from my siblings regarding the writing retreat they attended last week in McCall, the ugly green monster of jealousy reared its' ugly head, because I so wish I could be there.

But, a little thing called a summer job got in the way.

With a daughter heading off to college this fall, I needed to make a little money this summer.

I know I would have loved being there, though. I'm glad my sister-in-law LR was able to attend.

I look forward to hearing all about it.

But, until then, I'll continue to sulk here in Kellogg because I didn't get to go...

Okay...confession: I heard you were going to be at the Writing Retreat and Ohhhh, the green monster hit me too.

I know I wasn't part of the University, but I still have dreams of going to a retreat and getting a new perspective on my writing.

I'm sooo sorry you weren't able to go. Sounds like it was wonderful from the posts I read of IEG's.

I don't want to feed your green monster, but the retreat was really great. Your sister and brother were both excellent, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them better.

Happy early birthday!
