First things first: “Say ‘No!’ to Zombies” is available on Amazon kindle! (Still working on the paperback copy.)
Now that that’s out of the way – September, huh?
Sorry, I know some of you are like, “This is the longest January ever!” but I am more than happy to finally have most of summer behind me. I’ve spent the past two months (at least) grumbling about the heat (it’s almost 9pm when I’m writing this, and it’s still “Feels like 101°F” outside), so the fact that this week, we might be seeing temps in the 80°s is major cause for celebration. I told Nikki the other day that it feels like this year has flown by, what with it being one thing after another. I just can’t wait ‘til everything is over. I’m past done with customers being pissy about wearing a mask and Uber drivers trying to tell me that everything is a hoax.
Of course, the downside is that with it being September already, the kids are back in school. I mentioned before that we were sticking with remote learning, and let me tell you. It’s been a doozy. The eldest kiddo is doing fine. She gets up and gets to work, no problem. The youngest though, is fighting tooth and nail. He’s taken to waking up at 1am and staying up half the night, which means he’s cranky AF when 6:30am rolls around. He’s getting in trouble with his teachers and his classmates. It’s just a mess. A whole mess. (Before anyone starts on me: it’s not the teacher’s fault for this being a mess. The other students seem to be doing just fine. This is solely on the kiddo.) I don’t have to take over with him until about 9:15am, but from them until he’s done with his assignments for the day, it’s all out war. I’m quite eager to be moving out ASAP. (Too bad ASAP is still a good 6+months away.)
No real updates this month, besides the release of “Say ‘No!’ to Zombies.” I do have some time off from kids and work, so I’ll be writing as much as I can then. Sept. 7th will see the return of the #MusicMondays, so that’s something to look for, and I’ll try getting a new chapter of “Don’t Feed the Trolls” out later this month.
In the meantime, everyone stay safe and take care of yourself. It’s been a rough year, but we’ll make it through. If you’re taking part in any of the protests, double up on the staying safe and don’t forget your mask.
