I finally got my power back on! *Happy dance!* After over twenty-four hours of ninety-five plus degree weather and a blistering, sleepless night full of house-shaking thunderstorms and periodic M-80 explosions, I’m just a tad behind on my goals. Oh, and still no internet. I’m going to try to make it somewhere with Wi-Fi, but the exhaustion is kicking my @$$ today. (Update: I just wasn’t up to going out, so I tried desperately to do this from my phone. I couldn’t get it to work. But, I sucked it up and went to the coffice for a bit. Now, it’s nap time.)

There’s no focus to be had, so I think I’ll work ahead on the reading goals and (hopefully) double up on the writing goals tomorrow and/or throughout the weekend.

But, I’m all about the last minute sprint, so there’s hope. And, with each goal subdivided in to weekly increments, every Monday is a fresh start. Who’d have thought I’d ever actually look forward to Mondays!

And I’m working on a real (non ROW80 update related) blog post to hopefully have up before Sunday. I may have to break out the Elixir of Inspiration…

Happy Independence Day! And a great big “thank you” to all of our service men and women, and their families. All those big sparkly things in the sky, they’re for you.
