Another old school try

We are trying again. NO not babies. That is like me saying I need another ass. We are going to try and get Spence published. His book is 95,000 words that I think would be great for others to read.
He wrote this thing a few years ago and has shopped it out there. He got his first thanks but no thanks letter. Why he was happy I dont know but he was. Now we are trying again. A friend of mine, Lex Valentine, put out her first book with them this month and told her publisher about him. The very nice lady named Mary, great name by the way, was excited to get it. She wants to put out some fanasty and this is right down that ally.
I just hope that something happens. Yes it is a small company that publishes on the net but honestly that is the new thing to do. Plus as long as he gets it out there than that should be a good thing. It takes one small step to get to the big stuff.
Hopefully one day soon I will be able to hype up when his book comes out. Until than cross fingers, toes, or whatever is handy for him.

quick post

I have been busy so I will catch you up quickly. Got to run the boy to school in 15 minutes. So I get to have a fight with him within that time on brushing our teeth and putting our socks on. Yippee!!

First, girl scout cookie sales went great. Liz hit her goal cause daddy bought the the last 16 boxes sixteen boxes she needed. Now we are waiting on getting them and than delivering.
School is going fine. I have been doing fine on my quizzes. THe exams are another thing, Ithink. I just took my first but totally blanked on it. Not really looking forward to getting that back.
Just issued the first sock order. SO did daddy.
I will be starting softball anyday now. Actually I wanted to start already but new school that doesnt understand me yet. It wont take long though so this might get real intersting real quick.
We have had our mass exdous of apartments. 3 open right now that all have to be painted. Almost done withthe 2 bedroom. The others are just going to have to wait until I get there. Which means we cant rent them out utnil I done. IE Ruby the boss will hollar at Spence until they are.
In bewteen all this I am attempting to be there for my kids. I am overworked right now and need a vacation. It would be nice if I could do a week with no worries and no kids. Not going to happen but it is a nice dream. Off to change a stinky butt and yell at Josh.

Ice but not enough Booze

I was iced in all week with little booze and 3 kids that couldnt go outside. Honestly only 2 of the 3 can go outside but still werent allowed to. There was so much ice falling out of the trees that I just didnt trust it. All I needed was a kid walking in with blood running down their face. Did I menition I am not all that good with blood?
Mac was sick after getting his flu shot on Monday. I had a whining baby that wanted all my attention, 2 kids that wanted to play and a hubbie that wanted me to hurry up and move the branches to the ditch.
I was hurting the last few days from all the work and stress of the first part of the week. Cutting trees, no power, worried that we wouldnt have water, no cable, and the kids taking and losing my favortie necklace. Yeah I have had better weeks.
The biggest thing that really pisses me off is the reaction from my government. I am talking about my state folks. Our governor basically ingnored the pleas from our local officals to send help. Than he flys over and stops for 20 minutes and has it all figured out. Please, I wiped my ass of the all the crap so dont give me more. If he would have freaking listened the first 4 days help was called for than we would be ahead. Instead there are people that hopefully have been heard from by now.
I hope ya'll have a great day. I will be moving al these branches to the ditch so they can sit there for a few weeks. Than FEMA might just actually get their ass in gear and take care of them.
