I feel a power nap coming on, big time.
I’ve been running since 6:30 this morning. Well, not literally, figuratively … well actually, literally at times.
I got up at 5:45 a.m., went through my normal routine of checking emails, blogs, answering emails, updating websites and then at 6:30, I jumped into the shower, jumped out, made the kids’ lunches (I made an extra sandwich for a friend of MK’s because I’m just awesome like that), took the kids to school, came home, answered two more emails, packed my gear, went up to the public library (not the university library because I didn’t feel like driving all the way over there), got irritated with two women who wouldn’t shut up about some sort of pattern (AARGH! Library! Hello! SHUT THE EFF UP!)
Wrote 2500 more words, answered another email, met the husband for lunch, had scrumptious McSalty’s club sandwich and potato salad *drool*, went to Wally World (aka Wal-Mart for those that don’t speak Ozark-ian), bought a six-pack of Red Bull …
which is a new addiction, by the way.
and I should totally get paid for this picture,
then back home, to more emails and updates.
Now it’s about time to get the boys and when we get back? I’m totally taking a 20-minute power nap so I’ll have energy to fold laundry and get dinner started.
I’m ahead of the word count game and I’m loving my story so far. I think it definitely has potential. I’ve been doing a little spotty research on NASCAR and have learned some interesting stuff, that I’m of course incorporating into my story. Fun, fun. Look for the prologue tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow, I’m totally dreading it. I’ve been reading that people are being forced to stand in line for HOURS to vote. Swell. I plan on hitting the polls after I drop the boys off at school, then I’ll head to the university library to do more writing.
Even though the media would lead you to believe that Obama is leading, don’t listen to them, they make it sound like Obama has already won the thing. HA! It ain’t over until it’s over, folks. I sort of feel sorry for Obama because IF he wins, he’s going to have a lot to live up to, what with painting a Utopia for people. Good luck, dude. You’ll very well need it IF you win.
We’re scheduled to leave for camping Thursday after the kids get out of school. That will be a challenge to try and get any writing done while in the middle of the boonies, but I’ll figure something out. We had originally thought we would go to Dixie Stampede for my birthday dinner, but after running the numbers and figuring out it was going to cost us OVER $200 to see a show and eat, uh, no thanks. We’ll just go have some cheap steaks or something. Geez, just the thought of blowing $200 on something like that makes me gag chunks.
The weekend was quiet. I spent the majority of it writing …. zZzZzZz …. getting tired of hearing about it yet?
Just think, we still have 27 days left! Lucky you! 😉
