I’m on my second cycle of 10 hour shifts here at work. These have been rough and it’s been DEAD at night. Which I know isn’t a bad thing because that means nothing bad is happening. But man does it make for long nights.
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend two wrestling shows on consecutive days Friday July 25th in Fairfield for Maine Event Wrestling and Saturday in Augusta for IWE. Canaan and Alex came along Saturday. Attendance was low both shows, but they were both entertaining in their own way. I know I got my $10 worth! My next wrestling outing is shaping up to be IWE in Fairfield on Aug 8th.
Saturday morning before going to the matches we took the kids to the beach. We tried to go to Popham but they closed the road for an hour to celebrate Phippsburg’s 200th Anniversary, very inconvenient! We turned around and went to the half mile beach at Reid State Park. We brought a cooler with lunch and the kids had a blast, we all did!
I had been doing quite well on my exercising and eating write, I even managed to drop several pounds the last couple weeks. However, some very unpleasant chafing has but a hiatus on my walking until it heals up. I’m feeling motivated and want to get moving so this is upsetting because I don’t want to lose that motivation.
I’m approaching 5 months since I submitted by story to Tor.com. Their website states they usually get back to people in 3 months, if it’s been 4 then most likely it’s in the second look pile. Of course it follows that up with at 7 months you should hear from us, if it’s been 9 months we probably don’t have it. I’m hoping it’s that they are considering my story for publication. That would be a dream come true!
That’s all for now, check out this great cover version of “I’m on Fire” by Town Mountain, great stuff.
