I’m traveling!

My Army SGT son is coming to visit from Okinawa Japan for a month. We are training it across the country (I’m in California) to visit my Navy daughter in the Washington DC  area. Along the way, we’re stopping in Marion Indiana to visit my sister Tina who I haven’t seen in over a decade (though we talk often). I will get to meet many of her extended family I have never met. What a trip!

I am planning to be back to blogging the last week or so of July. Really, it’s hard to keep my fingers off the keys for longer than that. As a result, I won’t be around much. I apologize in advance for missing many of your posts. I will try to drop in now and then but I’m not sure of time constraints.

Jacqui Murray is the author of the popular Building a Midshipman, the story of her daughter’s journey from high school to United States Naval Academy, the Rowe-Delamagente thrillers, and Born in a Treacherous Timefirst in the Man vs. Nature collection. She is also the author/editor of over a hundred books on integrating tech into education, adjunct professor of technology in education, webmaster for four blogs, an Amazon Vine Voice book reviewer,  a columnist for TeachHUB, monthly contributor to Today’s Author and a freelance journalist on tech ed topics. You can find her books at her publisher’s website, Structured Learning.

  1. Hi Jacqui – I thought I’d commented … but perhaps looked and thought I must come back. So glad you’re able to share time with the kids etc … so enjoy every moment – which I know you will … your son must have arrived by now – as I’m waaaaaay late!! Cheers Hilary

      • Funny you say that, Jacqui. I can’t encourage you too much to find a church you like. It can be tricky, but the rewards can be heavenly. I’ve moved around so much I’ve honed a sharp edge that cuts right through to the best church fit for me. Thank you so much for inspiring yet another post. ❤

  3. That sounds like such a fun trip! Document it (says the memory maker in me). Hubby and I have been considering cross country train trips as well so it will be interesting to hear your experiences (I’m hoping you will share some of them!).

    • I am so happy my kids still take time to visit their mom. My son is always deployed around the world, gets home about once a year. I remember one year, he told me he wouldn’t be coming home that time, had a trip planned with a friend. Thank goodness it fell apart!

    • I haven’t done this in a while and absolutely agree with you: It’s needed. I pretty much work nonstop, 7 days/wk, because I’m It (as are most Indie writers) so this will be amazingly fun!


  4. No problem Jacqui! You deserve time off. After all you do for people, kick your feet up relax and enjoy family!! As always, I request a hardy handshake and thank you for both your son and daughter when the opportunity arises – much appreciated!!

      • I know what you mean, Jacqui and I feel the same about you all. Whenever I need a little blogging break I don’t blog myself but enjoy reading all the other posts and that way I kind of stay in touch. At first it will feel a bit weird but after a week or so you’ll get used to it and before you know it it’s the end of July! 😊
