Zipping Right Along

Sorry this is late, and it’s not going to be substantial, either.  I’ve been neck-deep in rewrites but I think I’m making good changes to “Release Point”.  I’m already seeing a lot more emotion than I saw in the earlier drafts.  Just goes to show, even when you think it’s finished, it’s probably not finished. 

I’m also working on some knitting projects.  I forgot to bring my sewing bag with me to work on while I waited for the boys’ buses, and it was unbelievably frustrating.  I count on those few minutes in the afternoon with my KPOs in my hands to help me calm down and decompress.  Considering that The VFRW Sheila contest has been in full swing for the past 10 days, I could use some decompression.  But I think we’re seeing light at the end of that tunnel, and I’m hoping it’s not an oncoming train. 

Someone sent me one of those questionnaire emails this morning, and one of the questions was, “What do you do when you’re bored?”  I laughed.  My answer was, “I have a full time job, two kids, a house, a husband, 2 cats, an obsession for knitting and I write fiction in my spare time.  I’m never bored.”  Perhaps, but I’m usually amused.  It beats being annoyed.

One last thing to share, since I’m having a Seinfeld blog today.  Ryan came home ticked off that someone put an apple core in his jacket hood.  I asked what inspired them to do something like that, and he says he has no idea.  I’m pretty sure it’s another alpha-male clash again and Ryan’s attitude got him in trouble, but he’s convinced they do it for no reason whatsoever.  It reminded me of the word “idiopathic”, meaning of no known origin.  Ryan thought I said “idiotpathic”. 

<sigh>  Back to the grindstone.
