Sunday Morning Coming Down

I'm still tired. I think it's from being up most of Thursday night. I did take a nap while I was getting my hair highlighted yesterday. I'm just sluggish, though.

What Mattered Most cracked the top ten list over at My Bookstore and More, which is very cool. I should be receiving edits soon on Truth and Consequences. I really need to concentrate on getting my website up and running again, so my excerpts are out there, but I've had more pressing things going on lately. Soon, I promise.

Only three more weeks until the graduation test for my juniors. Only four more weeks until spring break. And only twelve weeks left in this school year!

The DH is still on his job search. He has a job, of course, but is looking for something that would allow him more time at home. (I must admit it was very nice having him here Thursday night with the tornado bearing down on us!) He has some prospects that would work very nicely for us, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. (See, hope can be a method!)

As you've noticed by now, I'm rambling, rambling, rambling in a less-than-Faulkner-ish stream of consciousness. That's what my mind is like this weekend, all over the place. I should be more focused tomorrow, once I'm back in teacher mode.

Now if I could just get into writer mode and get past sentence number seven on Afterburn. The plot idea is still too vague, and despite knowing I should really be busting my butt on that manuscript, I can't seem to focus enough discipline to sit and work on it. Maybe after the graduation test is behind us . . .

Maybe once DH's job search is behind us . . .

And maybe I'd better take that advice I'm always dumping on the juniors and freshmen and just do it!
