The partners at the Berry Brewer Freelance Agency posted an incredible video showing highlights of their first year. It’s at http://www.sparkplugging.com/freelance-parent/berry-brewer-freelance-agency-year-one/ .
I don’t know about your state, but Michigan’s law doesn’t allow school to begin until after the Labor Day Weekend. Originally I supported said law, mainly because my marriage anniversary is August 31, and we generally try to get away (this year we’re going to a wine region near Lake Michigan for a couple days). It also didn’t affect me as a cubefarm worker, as my children were generally in childcare.
However, this summer I figured they were old enough to have around while I tried to write over the summer, and boy, was I ever wrong. Oh well, live and learn. Next summer something will hve to be done.
But, for now, I don’t think any mother in Michigan is counting down like I am! Once September 2 rolls around, GWP will revert back to full time hours, and I will be actively seeking new contracts again. I’m also focusing more on editing and print media.
When do children head back in your state? I bet some of you can already brag empty houses.
