I made no attempt to enter revisions on the computer today. I just sat and read hard copy, marking away with that old red ink pen. Had to stop on occasion to look up Scriptures but did make some good headway. I’m not where I wanted to be, but didn’t fall further behind either. And I’m feeling so much better about how the story is going. Either the book is easier to rewrite in this portion or the prayers of my friends are working. I suspect it is the latter.
My m-i-l called today. She can’t make it for Thanksgiving after all. She can’t get on any of the flights. So she is going to come for a visit the following week. Hopefully, I will be done (or really close to done) with the rewrites of LL by the time she gets here. That will mean I can actually enjoy her visit instead of ignoring her most of the time while I work.
Tomorrow morning — early! — I’m headed for Boise State University to attend the KBOI sponsored visit of Sean Hannity. He’s supposed to address the audience, then will sign books. I’m going with three of my conservative writer friends. We’ll leave my house at 6:10 a.m. Ugh!
Why does that time sound so awful when I’m usually up long before that anyway? Maybe it’s because I have to be showered and have make up on before 6:00. The poor women at the fitness center have to see me at 6:30 on M-W-F with no make up and wild hair. I do make sure to brush my teeth before I leave the house, however. 😉
Odd topic: I keep seeing ads for deep fat fryers for turkeys. Why would anyone want to take a naturally low fat meat and deep fat fry it?
I caught a portion of the Oprah show this afternoon. Watched about ten minutes and had to turn it off. It was about wives who had affairs and couples who swap. “Oh, hey. Here is an acceptable option.” That’s how it seemed to be presented. Makes me crazy. Breaks my heart. The lives that are ruined in the pursuit of happiness in so many of the wrong places.
