We're home!

Well, we got home Thursday night and spent some time with a family friend who has just returned from Iraq. Got to hear some stories, some of which I probably didn't need to hear. He also showed us footage of when their convoy was hit with an I.E.D. How his wife was able to sit and watch it over and over again is beyond me. So the guys got to share war stories and got a military family perspective on the upcoming administration changes and how it'll affect them. It's amazing to hear real life perspective compared to a vote bartering politician's or biased media reports.

Anyhoo...nine days is too long to go without cyber connections. We leave out for the cabin again on Tuesday and I think I'll have to make a point of going into town several times. Little man was able to play in the snow and thinks it'll still be there when we get back.

Amazing. It's the middle of January, a new year, and I still feel good about my simple resolutions. I've lost 10 pounds from just cutting out pop and crappy snacks. I haven't caught up with everyone on crits...but I'm keeping up at least and actually working with one person at a time. So I feel good about seeing progress. I'm keeping my resolution to 'just do it'.

My WIP is coming along. Not as fast as I would like, speed will come as the words flow. At least I feel confident about the new changes though. I'd like to have the partial revised and subbed by the end of January. We'll see. Looking forward to a productive week!

Hope you get into the flow this week on your partial.
