A Rude Awakening

Ah, Saturday. The end of the work week. The beginning of the weekend. My day to sleep in. After waking up early all week long to get up and write before work, even on the mornings when my wife tries to convince me to sleep in, I'm relieved when the weekend comes, the cycle hums, ready to race to you....wait, that's the theme song from Happy Days. Must be cautious not to Jump the Shark so quickly.

My goal is to sleep in until my body wakes up AND I am ready to get out of bed. Well, my body woke up at about 7:30, but I looked at my clock and said no f-ing way and went back to sleep.

"Vic's puking!" Max shouted as he ran into our room at 7:56.

Being a parent can bring you great joy, and children can be a tremendous blessing. But as the old saying goes, every silver lining conceals a thunderstorm of vomit (or something like that).

Luckily, Max (7) helped Vic (4) to the bathroom, so there was no mess to clean up.

Now, on with my Saturday...

I had a similar situation on Thursday, but it's all good now. I hope yours also made a quick recovery!

It wasn't that bad, he rebounded by mid-day.

The icing on the cake was last night when they each wanted to watch a different movie. I flipped a coin to settle it, and Max was really upset he didn't win and threw a fit. It was an insane amount of drama over Wall-E vs. Ice Age, but we were able to resolve it eventually.

I was just "telling" Murphy (also a follower on my blog) Kristin Nelson's agency has a new agent. She might be a good place for you to query, too. There's info about her on the blog's last post.

Thanks for the tip. If I get a no from the current partial, I'll query Sarah. I hope to know in about a week. Said agent has said in interviews that partials usually take 2 weeks for review.

My fingers are crossed so tightly they resemble pretzels and really complicate typing.
