Time is short.

Life - 
Man, October is shaping up to be a tremendously busy month. My wife and I switch rotations in the first of the month, which will allow our days off to fall on Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, which will be great. I haven't had a Christmas off in seven years, to the point that last year I found myself being quite a Scrooge. I hope that this will make things easier, but there's still a high likelihood that working in retail during the holidays will still get to me. Odds are good that you'll hear a lot more about that in months to come.

Our anniversary is on the sixth of October and once again, we'll likely have to celebrate it on a different day, we both work that night.  From there, it's gogogogogogogo until November. I'm trying desperately to finish my zombie book by Halloween so that I can stay in the spirit, and we're leaving for a week to visit a few potential sites in Oregon to move next year. After we get back, I work a rotation, then we have a couple of days to prep for the Brain Eaters party, then November is upon us.

We've slept a ridiculously wonky schedule this group of days off too, and I'm not sure why. Last night, we took a "Nap" around 7:30, woke up to the alarm, fell back asleep, at some point accidentally locked Ludo out of the bedroom, and eventually woke up at 10:00pm. We figured there wasn't any point in getting up, so I pottied the dogs, took a shower and went back to bed. Then we got up at 5am. It's been like this all week.

Writing - 
I had planned on working on my revisions to The Whispering Ferns today, but after realizing how much time I had before Halloween, I decided that I should dive back into the zombie wasteland of Graves, in an attempt to finish it before November. Besides, working on a lighthearted ghost story around Christmas sounds pretty good.

The Last Sentence -

The infected from the store have begun eating each other, and I have a front row seat.

From - "Graves" (WIP)

sounds like you have a bunch of stuff to look forward too. I hope that you can enjoy Christmas this year. I must say I enjoy it more now that I no longer work in retail.

Thanks for sharing your music selections. Especially when I've actually heard of the song. Please keep that at the top of your post. That way I can sing to myself as I'm reading the rest of it. I spent many a road trip listening to the cars. "...But you kept it goin, till the sun fell down, you kept it... goin... O we-ell you might think..." I spent a brief but enjoyable time with your in-laws this weekend. Sue and Rich are delightful people.

I hope so too, I was really grumpy about Christmas last year... I felt bad for my employees.

I shall continue with it, Randy! I hadn't done it before because I didn't have iTunes on my computer for a long time. My In-Laws are something else, that's for sure.
