Vacation almost over


It's Sunday, and that means it's the last day of my vacation. It's been a good week, though. I did well at the gym, and I finished a burning, which would have taken forever if I had not been off. I've been practicing the guitar. Going to the gym and I've been reading The Face, but can't really get into it. And that bothers me because it's a Koontz book and I have never read any thing of his that I wasn't crazy over. But it was bound to happen. I currently have 24 Dean Koontz books, and will be adding again shortly.
Anyway, I've been doing a lot of productive stuff while I was off. And I also found time to lay around and do nothing. I can't wait for that day to come!
It will come one day. It the not-too-distant future.
Other than that, everything's been pretty much the same. Waiting for Luthor back from the editor so I couldn't do anything with that.
No word on the movie lately. I think the economy kind of slowed that train right down. Maybe when The Rise of the Son is published it will give it some more kick.
Okay, that's it. I got shit to do.

Sunday before vacation


It's the Sunday morning before my vacation starts. Well, a lot of people are off on Monday, so technically my vacation starts on Tuesday. But whatever, I'm off until next week!
Steve's off today so that will be nice. It seems we never get days of together anymore. But that will all change when we we win the HGTV Dream Home! It's in Santa Fe! It's a sign. We were meant to win this one. We enter three times a day (once a day per email address) and Steve mailed off some postcards for us, too.
I know there are a lot of people entering, but there is no room for doubt. We've put it out in the universe that we're gonna win (plus pray to God each night). Got all the bases covered.
As for the now, I'm just chillin'. It's only seven in the morning. I've been up since 6:30. Steve won't be up for another few hours. Until then I'll work on my new burning (wait til you see it, it's gonna be cool), then I may read a little. Then, who know. The day is young, and I've got seven more of them lined up where I don't have to do shit. And I'm gonna enjoy it.
Be nice to each other.

Portugal passes gay marriage!

Now Portugal has passed gay marriage! Thank you!
But I'm confused; Aren't we living in the great United States of America? The land of opportinity. The land of the free. Supposedly the most advance (one of them) country in the world. Then please won't someone tell me why places like Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden are seeming to surpass us in the citizens equal rights thing?

First day of work of the new year


It was the first full work day of the new year. It all seemed to be going okay until about two o' clock when all my energy flew out the fucking window. I guess three days off causes your body to realize how much it rally enjoys being off.
Speaking of being off, the picture is of Santa Fe (of course), and that's going to be mine and Steve's focus for quite a while. Actually until we get there, I guess. The new year feels good already, and I'm determined to make things happen. Of course I can't help the things that are out of my control, but the things that I can control, I will control. Like our move to Santa Fe. Of course, if we don't win the lottery, or the HGTV dream Home, we'll have to wait until I retire in 4 1/2 years (out of my control), but if that turns out to be the case, we'll get there in 4 1/2 years. Until then, I will do whatever I can to get my writing career going (in my control, sort of). I will pursue agents and publishers to the best of my ability. I will put things in order that I can put in order, so that when the time comes to get the hell out of Texas, we can go.
As far as other things went today: I practiced for about a half an hour on the guitar, but my fingers are killing me. I said I would try to practice every day, and I'm going to do it. I didn't, however, work on the wood burning I started. I was just too tired and I didn't want to screw anything up. But it wasn't for lack of trying.
Well, that's it for now.
Be nice to each other.

The new year!

Finally, 2009 is gone!!!! I have to say that I have never hated a year more than I have the last one. There were just so many trying times and difficult things to have to handle: Steve changed jobs, we sold the house, Michael Jackson died, etc.
And I've heard the same sentiment from so many people it's surprising.
But now it's 2010. A new year and a brand new start.
We had a great Christmas, which was nice since last year we didn't have one because we had the house on the market. Obviously I got a guitar. It's something I've always wanted to learn and now that I got one, I have to start learning. But I'm bound and determined to do it, so I will. I would like to be really good with it by the time we move to New Mexico. It would be great so sit outside as the sun sets and just play. I can't wait. We're gonna make it happen, dammit!
I'm about to start a new wood burning. This time I'm doing an elk. I just have to start negotiating my time better so I manage to practice the guitar, write, do wood burnings and also find some time to read. Oh, and all around my fucking day job! Yuck!
Anyway, that's it for now. Later-
