It's been a stressful week so far. I won't go into details, but things didn't go well with the mediation at hubby's work. so next step is going to Fed court. But that could take 9 months to do! Not a good time line for the guys that are struggling on a very reduced salary (as in $12 ah HOUR less). The stress hasn't been good for me. I have no energy, eating is all whacked out, and I haven't worked out since last week.
Even my writing seems to be taking a hit. I'm struggling a bit with a scene in chapter 10. I THINK I have it figured out, but we'll see what my beta reader thinks. Plus I gave the first like 8 chapters or so to a guy at work. I wanted a guy's perceptive on my WIP. Now it's true guys don't read paranormal romances, but if it keeps him interested, I think it's a good thing.
Caleb got hurt in his football game on Saturday. I knew he had a game at 3 in the afternoon, but after an hour or so of no score update, I texted my daughter. Didn't back from her for like 24 mins or so. Then I get one of those Don't panic mom but...text messages. It seems Caleb was sweeping around to tackle the QB and some running back came across the field and hit Caleb with his helmet, right in the gap between where Caleb's shoulder pads and helmet are. So they ended up in the ER. Caleb is OK but he was sore and had a huge bruise on his jaw. They aren't suppose to be doing helmet to helmet hits, but unless the Ref start calling, there'll be more of them.
We also went to a Hawaiian picnic on Sat. We had lots of fun and good food. It was with some Hawaiian from hubby's work, so a lot of talk about all the crap happening there. It was a pot luck type things, we took Hawaiian Potato Mac salad and Ono Hawaiian Spare ribs. here's hubby crisping up the ribs:
So I guess that'll be it for today. I'm hoping things are a bit more normal tomorrow. Well...as normal as I get!
