If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Alright! Looks like the old editor works for me. So here we go.
Writing updates: I am on Chapter six of my new wip almost at 12,000 words. WooHoo!

The trip to Denver went really well. We left at 6am, I did so much homework in an attempt to enjoy the weekend that I was dog tired when we made it to the hotel at 11am. We all took a nap then headed to the indoor swimming pool.

Saturday we went to water world and the kids had so much fun! We swam most the time in a small wave pool in Captain Jack's area because people were standing for almost two hours just to get on one ride or slide.

Then on Sunday we went to the Aquarium- Which is very neat. There was actually a sea turtle attacking a poor diver trying to feed the fish because it wanted the food. LOL

Then we were lost for an hour and a half attempting to find City park to go to the Science museum, when we managed to find it we decided on the Zoo since it was right next to the museum and we left Denver at 3pm.

Sounds like you had a ton of fun! I went to the aquarium this week, but I didn't get to witness a hungry monstrous sea turtle attack a diver. ;)
