I am, quite simply, exhausted. We took our 8th grade students to Washington D.C. last weekend and it has been a game of "catch up on sleep" ever since. Problem is, work doesn't stop. Schoolwork doesn't stop. Social life doesn't stop. Housework doesn't do itself. This book doesn't write itself. So when it's all said and done, I'm not getting any more sleep than usual, which is not enough. Oh well. C'est la vie.

I have about 50 days before the Big Sur Workshop in December. The more I read about the workshop the more excited I become! I can't wait, but I definitely need those 50 days to get ready.

In my freetime (HA!) I'm daydreaming about what car I would get if I were able to swing it. My Honda Civic EX is making death rattles but I'm going to push it as far as it will go. I'm not into flashy cars. I just want reliability. What cars do you all drive? Are you happy with them? Are you happy with the service of the manufacturer? 


  1. Oh, you were in DC last weekend! How fun! What did you guys do? October is a great time to visit.

    You'll have to let us know how the Big Sur Workshop goes! I've always wanted to attend but I never had the money. I've heard it's fantastic!

  2. DC was lots of fun and the weather was perfect. We saw pretty much everything. We fit as much as we can into three days so that the kids get the full experience. We do everything from the monuments to the museums to the Kennedy Center to Arlington Cemetery to ghost tours and Hard Rock Cafe.

    I can't wait for Big Sur! I'll be using November to whip my MS into shape for it!
