Workshop Surprise

He gave me a writing/publishing office, I gave him a woodworking/gardening workshop. Good trade:-)


Shock and Awe

I’m sleep deprived and the day’s adrenaline has totally worn off, but here’s the anatomy of the fullest day I’ve had in years:

5:30 a.m.  I asked the people arguing outside my hotel room window to be quiet…and they complied (shock).

7:00 a.m. The hotel clerk actually said “sorry about that” when I honestly answered his “How was your stay?” (shock)

8:45 a.m. & 10:00 a.m.  I played bass in the church band for the first time (shock for friends at church).

12:00 p.m. I brought pages to critique group today–the first pages for my YA work in progress in two years (shock to both myself and the group).

5:00 p.m. My husband made a lovely dinner of braised pork chops, stuffing, and zucchini (awe).

8:00 p.m. I made cookies (shock). For no reason (awe). The kids are really excited about packing tomorrow’s lunches now;-)

I’ll be shocked if I don’t fall asleep quickly tonight. It would be awesome to get a full 8 hours of z’s.
