And I didn’t fall asleep until around 4 a.m. thanks to Ismail not feeling tired and getting up to watch Zombieland on t.v. which of course, set Randa off on a middle-of-the-night-autistic-meltdown which included screaming at me every 10 minutes, “STUPID ISMAIL’S NOT SLEEP….GROSS….ZOMBIES T.V………..MOMMY!”
So, naturally I didn’t even hear the alarm go off at 5:50 a.m. and once again, Samiya and Aiman stayed home from school. Yup. MOTY is just a distant dream once again. Right up there with “full 8 hours of sleep” apparently.
The mosquito population of Alexandria is concentrated under the desk where I’m typing. I expect by now I’m immune to West Nile virus….I do live west of the Nile. But that’s just the bad stuff.
The good stuff is as follows:
1. President Obama is STILL the President.
2. Today was sandwiches day so that I could focus on my writing.
3. Ismail fixed my Birkenstocks with super glue so my feet don’t have to cry anymore.
4. I am only 600 words short of where I’m supposed to be on my NaNoWriMo quota.
5. It rained today.
6. My characters in my novel are dragging me through their life story with me playing only a very small role in
their direction. This book is just awesome.
7. President Obama is STILL the President.
All in all, it looks like a pretty damn good day for me.
