Friday has been a popular day this month. It seems like every time I turn around, it's Friday.
The weather here is gross. I totally thought school would be cancelled, but no. It is not snowing as much now as it was (though that's not to say it won't pick up again) but the bus is going to have a horrible time getting up the hill. As much as I enjoy a quiet work day, I'd rather have the kids home than worry about the bus.
Then there's the fact that the dh is supposed to be flying home this afternoon. And the crappy roads he's going to have to drive between the airport and here. We sometimes complain about the gas mileage as our car is an AWD, but days like today I'm really grateful. It is a BEAST in the snow.
Ah yes. Snow has already picked up slightly. I should have kept my mouth shut.
I also fell while walking the dog this morning. The youngest piped up, "Is there ice under the snow?" and before I could even think of an answer, down I went. Answer enough in itself. It didn't hurt (I did mention we got a decent dump of snow, right?) but my pride was a little dented as the neighbour's driveway was being cleared at the time and I did it right in front of the plow guy. Nice work.
So, I'm nice and cozy and tucked into my newly de-cluttered desk with a space heater by my feet, happy I'm home but wishing everyone else was too.
In work news, I have been chatting back and forth with my editor at Samhain about cover art and I can't wait to show it to you, but it has to go through final approval before we can release it to the world. I LOVE it. Seriously love it.
And if I can finish chapter 8 today I will be in good shape for next month - just over the 30k mark and I am already feeling a bit of the urgency pushing me to the end. The only thing I'm really questioning at the moment is if I'm going to have to add scenes - if some things need to be shown in real time. I'll know better when I get to the end and see how many words I have to play with, and how the pacing reads as a whole.
But for now I'm off. Despite the space heater, I am freezing and I think I will make a cup of tea. Hopefully by tonight we'll all be under the same roof drinking hot chocolate and maybe watching a dvd.
