EMC is having its summer sales meeting this week. As opposed to last year, when they asked us to do presentations for our workbooks, they only want to hear about our two textbooks. So, thankfully, my presence is not required. Don't get me wrong--I really enjoy going to these meetings, making connections, and learning about new products. But Jason is in the middle of two weeks in south Florida for Pearson's sales meetings. So we'd have a child care dilemma.
So instead, I'm playing single mom for a while again--handling both the dropoffs and pickups, setting up and executing playdates, and spending an inordinate amount of time in drive-throughs. Luckily, though, our girl is four-and-a-half now, so there's not the issue of having a highly unreasonable being who communicates only through screaming and crying. Now there are words alongside the screaming and crying.
