When I think of sleep and how I miss it, I hear Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” in my head. No, I was not disillusioned enough to think I would still sleep after having a baby. I’m dim when it comes to some things but not that. By the way, mad kudos to my wife because she’s been super gracious to me, allowing me to sleep during week nights when I have to get up early for work. That’s not to say I told her to wake me up if she needs help with our little man while she feeds him every two hours. She’s amazing. I don’t know how she does it. There truly is a magical power when it comes to mothers and their ability to care for their babies. It’s a beautiful thing and has been a great delight of mine to witness.
I admit, I am writing this blog post the day of. Usually, I’m ahead by a few days so I can tweak and edit my post before releasing it. Today, though, it’s different. We had a long weekend and I didn’t feel like writing on any of my days off. So there.
It was a great weekend though. My sister and brother-in-law were in town and they got to meet their nephew. I saw Deadpool 2, which is not for everyone (seriously, if you saw the first one on purpose or by accident, the sequel drives the violence and vulgarity to 11). We watched the series finale of one our favorite shows, New Girl, not knowing it was the finale until the very end. I’m still coping with that too… I love that show. I might have to do a tribute post to honor it. Overall, a great weekend.
Other than that, I’ve been getting some feedback from my beta readers and that’s been encouraging. Looks like minor fixes so far. Really looking forward to getting all the comments. There’s a level of anticipation I am keeping tight reins on at the moment. I don’t have a bevy of patience so it’s all about keeping myself occupied with other things. I am revising the first novella of the Ravanguard series to keep my skills sharp. I think I’ll provide more info on that and my process later this week or the following week. So keep an eye out.
Hope you all had a great weekend and were able to rest and spend time with friends or family.
Call to Action: Where are all my yanny people at?! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look up “yanny vs laurel”.) Apparently, what you hear has to do with frequencies. It’s science.
