Whew. Just when I thought I might actually be consistent with blogging, it's suddenly 16 days later! Where does the time go?
Actually, I can tell you. All it takes is a little idle time for things to really take off. I was working on a cool tourism project I got as a follow up to the Chick Trips itineraries that I wrote and edited for the department last fall. So, I'm on deadline for the first two trips in the new series when I got an unexpected offer for a very cool assignment with Oklahoma Today.
That deadline took me on a great overnight trip to Tulsa where Kevin and I pounded the pavement for a good 24+ hours and saw more than I thought was possible in such a short time. We were in-and-out of restaurants, shops, and attractions all day long until we basically could go no more. We saw places like this:
And here's a shot with an actual person! Kevin drinking a pint of Guiness at McNellie's (the original!)
All of that to say, all of last week, and most of this week was all-Tulsa for me. Researching, phone calls, writing. It was a much bigger project than I thought! I finally finished up yesterday. Wondering what you should see and do in Tulsa? Stay tuned for my article coming out in Oklahoma Today's awesome July/August issue. It will be great.
Throughout this crazy week we've had three showings. One a day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday....hooray! And even better news? Got the info today that one of those showings will be making a repeat visit this Sunday. Our first repeat! YAY! This is great news and basically means this is our visit to blow. They already like the house. We just have to seal the deal. Please stick, please. stick.
We had a very simple and great Mother's Day on Sunday (which is when the pictures above were taken). Riley is awesome. I have lots to report on his swimming lessons....which are going, well, swimmingly! He's close to being able to save his own life. And my Mother's Day gift? Boot camp! Also more on that coming up. See, I really am planning on blogging more. Really am planning...
