Rain, Rain, Go Away...

We had some SERIOUS rain last night. Thank heaven we're at the top of the hill in our subdivision--the poor houses at the very bottom of the hill the next subdivision over have lakes in their front yards.

And now they're telling us to expect 60MPH winds later today? HUH? Hubby is in Chicago for the day, I hope he doesn't get blown off the road on the way back. Scary.

I am functioning on about one hour of sleep. Hubby had to wake up at 4am for his trip, and we went to bed at 11pm. Then the rain started. I had been editing for two hours before we went to bed, so it was midnight before I could even turn my brain off --I was still deep in my story. Then I tossed and turned because I couldn't sleep, and Hubby tossed and turned because HE couldn't sleep, and by the time we fell asleep at 3:30 he had to wake up an hour later. And I couldn't go back to sleep. I went and crashed in the guest room (dang it I'd just put on clean sheets!) but I couldn't be in the room with him puttering around.

So, I'm DEAD. But I'm here and I'm ready to edit. I've got my mini on my lap and the baby is running around pulling toys out of his toy box. I'm on page 166 of 280, so I've got a ways to go. But at least I've passed the halfway mark!

Just took the kids to school in DENSE fog. Seriously, I couldn't see more than 50 feet in front of my car. The kids thought it was eerily cool. Actually, so did I!

Hope everyone stays dry!

An adventure in the fog! Cool!

Congrats on the edits.

Can you nap when the baby does later?

It's supposed to start raining here tonight and then rain the rest of the week.

I'm editing, too. Go us!
