Much needed coffee. Ugh. There has been so much going on around here that I haven't been sleeping well. Our dogs have decided they need middle of the night breaks and have been waking me up every morning before 3am for the last week. Which really sucks because about the time I get comfortable and start falling back to sleep...my husbands stupid crowing rooster alarm goes off at 4am. So of course, little man wakes up and wants to climb into the big bed with me. *sigh*
But we've had two horrific car accidents locally and teenagers have been killed, which has my mind focused on my man/child. My heart is breaking for the families, I just can't imagine losing a child. School starts in a couple of weeks (YAY!) which means I'll be watching the clock and worried about my man/child driving to and from school. We've also had several good family friends running in local political races and dealing with campaigns. Cool news is that Oklahoma will have it's first female governor this year. Mary Fallin is a home-girl and a Republican...which is two strong positives for me. But her Democratic opponent has a great voting record as Lt. Governor. So I'll be digging and looking at both women to check out what they've actually done in their careers that I think will benefit our state and my family. One of my beliefs is to not listen to campaign ads. I don't care what you TELL me you think you can do...prove it. Actions and experience speak so much louder than words.
And...*deep breath*....lots of other fun issues. So no sleepy for me. And definitely more coffee. I'm wide awake and ready to work on critiques. I'm stuck on how to end my current revised chapter and will send it to a friend to see if my sketched out thoughts will work before I finish off the last 3-4 chapters.
Hope you guys are having a great and productive week so far!
