As Saturday found it’s way to the noon hour, I was freed from the bonds of a ‘day job’ and made my way home to spend some time with my kids before they left for a weekend getaway with their mother and step-father.
Lynden had gone with me to work at my evening job and was a huge help for me! Since he had spent the night, Ethan and Rylen came over to see me before leaving. As Rylen watched cartoons, I watched Ethan play a game on his tablet. Lol, it was here that a 70 hour work week was catching up.
I watched Ethan play but at times heard him ask, “Are you getting sleepy Dad?” I did my best to hide it but he is so good at seeing right through it and knew I was a bit sleepy. None the less I watched him play for a while before it was time for them to go on there little trip.
I laid down for a rest after they left when 20 minutes into that rest, my mother called and invited me to eat with her and her husband in a town over from me. I went out and had a great evening, even if my Pasta Alfredo was not the greatest. I came home with a full stomach and with the sleep setting in, decided to take a night off of work on my writing.
I woke up at 10 a.m. which is very late for me, but I felt well rested. I caught up on the national news for some of the morning before going to my rental house and scraping the walls of loose paint, taking down light fixtures and removing outlet covers so I can clean the walls and begin painting.
As the evening closed in, I finished my work and returned home to shower and begin work on more queries for Barney & Lexi. I know that an agency is interested in B&L but with so much on the line, I do not want to simply sit back on my laurels and expect it to just come to me. I have to wait until 2017 and want to know that I covered all of my bases. I sent out three more Query Letters tonight. I have learned that researching the agent is such a good measure because you don’t want to write someone who has no interest in your writing, plus, showing you care about there interests is a big plus to showing your attention to them as well.
I then did my laundry and went to work on another page of The Boondock Kids.
As the kids walked with Kelmare through the Clawthorne Mountains, the four realized that they had moved a great distance while not feeling as though they had moved that far. Kelmare explained that, in Spyderia, time can pull on your steps in micro ways that when you don’t realize it, can pull you along without any sense being known. This confused Mario, Louis, Sindy and Cristena.
Kelmare explains that when they aren’t thinking about gravity and distance, they become part of the Spyderian Escalator which can pull there steps micro steps further and making one step closer to two without them even noticing it. Kelmare then explains that his species is able to move quickly from one point to another because they have the ability to control their thoughts in a way that they move rapidly across the escalator.
Cristena then questions how Kelmare can help them move from danger with him since they can not control their thoughts as well. Kelmare then notes that when physically connected by holding handles, time does not know the difference and assumes that the connected entity is Kelmare and all would be transported at his speed.
Although complex, The Boondock Kids are intrigued by this process and continue onward through the mountains.
Well, it is now time for my bed and I to say goodnight. Work will come early and last late so I want to wish you a wonderful Monday ahead and hope you make the most of the new day!
