It has been a crazy couple of days here in Maine. In order to complete illustration sketches for a Tuesday meeting, I stayed up until 3 am Monday night. I had completed most of the sketches previously and had planned to scan and print them to create a draft dummy. However, when I found the moving box with  the scanner, I could not find the power cord. Very frustrating. I ended up re-sketching all the images.

Last night, a fire alarm woke my two kids and myself at 3:30 am. We high tailed it outside, called 911 and waited for the firefighters to show up. Luckily, it was a false alarm. Perhaps a faulty fire alarm device. We were back in the house by 4:30 but none of us could sleep. It’s hard to sleep when you are scared that maybe it wasn’t a false alarm. The two kids ended up in my bed. Then they fell asleep fine. I couldn’t get my heart to stop thumping through the blankets. I kept hugging and holding them. The alarm went off again tonight. I think it is faulty so I replaced it with another that we had. I hope that will be the end of that.

Of course our night time schedules have not changed the last-week-before-school-starts-day-time schedule. Days have included school shopping and a trip to Funtown Splashtown USA. (I hear you singing the theme song, Maine-ahs) 

On a writing note…um…well…
So kids are going back to school on Monday. Maybe that will help things out.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
