Thankfully today has been less draining than yesterday, no four thirty am wake up calls because an abandoned trailer was on fire just two houses behind ours, in fact I managed to get close to eight hours of sleep last night, and boy do I feel more refreshed than I have in a long time.
Yesterday I walked around feeling like a zombie, I just dont function well with only an hour of sleep, but then again who does? Today though I feel much better I was able to go to Staples to get some new pens, as well as new keyobard, I discovered long ago, using a seperate keyboard and mouse on a laptop eliminates alot of wear and tare. We had the lady my Mom works with Patrica, who is also a friend of the family and her grandaughter Cassidy along with her son and well generally a car load of people, we got entertain with Cassidy, whose five, but smart as a whip, she can read at a third or fourth grade leven, I was really surprsied when she came with us last time and she was reading some of the books I had for the older kids at Church. It just goes to show you the importance of reading to your kids when they are young. I know I am a testament to that fact, I read at the age of three and a half because Nonna had always exposed me to books, and despite my dyslexia I read at five, I did not being writing stories for several years, but I always had an imagination that carried me away.
I was thankful that today was filled more with the everyday things of life, at least in the life of a writer, ran into my Aunt Renee who ended up buying my book. The only copy I had, but I dont get to see her often, and she wanted the book so who am I to say no, I will just put more orders in from Amazon, or from the little Christian bookstore, where I should be doing my signing soon.
The second book in the Sisters Justice series is nearly ready for publication and i am working on the third as well as several other projects, and doing what I can to help Janet spread the Lord's message.
Now I am at home working on Buried Truths, the third book, and watching Dateline, until Flashpoint comes on. What a relief to be able to sit back and relax. I managed to get my Moms card and a white rose, just because, but generally I try to write a special poem, and perhaps take her out to eat on Mothers Day. No matter what though, I am grateful that my Mom and I are as close as we are.
I thought tomorrow I would be working with the Kids Klub, but I am sure it has been cancelled because tomorrow is our parade, and Rodeo, and some of the children will be involved in that. I doubt I will be going to the Parade, because my meds and being in direct sunlight don't mix.
