This morning was almost like dealing with an entirely new family. We’re all still pretty darn exhausted, but we’re definitely getting closer to the caught up on sleep goal.
Oddly enough, since I’m trying to be a hard-working man, keeping up with my mandatory overtime and whatnot, I actually got less than 6 hours of sleep last night, but I am feeling much better this morning all the same.
I have decided, however, that the moment I sell my book, that exact second, no matter what I’m in the midst of, I’m going to take a nap. I won’t even tell anyone anything, I’ll just go take a nap.
I’m considering this same response to the moment an agent offers to represent me. . . but I’m just not sure I’ll be as deserving of such a wonderful prize 🙂
Anyways, today marks the 9th year since the day I first had a date with my wife. We have no clue what movie we saw (although we like to say that it was the first Pirates of the Caribbean), but we know where we were and have a pretty good grasp on what was going through our minds during that stage of getting to know each other.
Side note: I realize it may appear that there was a whole bunch of funny business going on, since we don’t remember what movie we saw, I assure you, there wasn’t. I’m notoriously horrible at making first moves, that generally takes months of prep time.
Nine years, a wedding, and 2 children later, I’m still trying to get to know my wife. 🙂 I mean, believe me, I have a pretty good idea of who she is. But, people seem to constantly be able to surprise you. It’s one of those things that I try to encapsulate in my writing (not sure I’ve succeeded very well yet).
My wife surprises me often. And I like that. Having those things that occur that I don’t expect, even if they are just having random nerdrages at things I didn’t realize she was even aware about, makes things interesting.
So, anyways, long-windedness made short. I’ve had a fantastic last nine years, and I’m very excited to see where the next nine takes us.
Hopefully somewhere where there’s naps. . .
