Today is primary day in New Hampshire (and six other states + D.C.): -- if you live here: go vote. If you aren't sure when the primaries are held in your state, go here for information.
Just a friendly reminder to exercise your civic duty :-)
DD did better yesterday with school. She's still behind, but her attitude improved some, so I can deal with the rest. It's the "Maybe I'll get hit by a car so I don't have to do my homework." thing that was making me crazy.
We'll see how today goes. Since we have to go vote, I'm also going to run to the post office, dump and library -- and that will cut in to her school day. I'll have her bring some work with her in the car, though, so it should help.
I've gotten behind on writing the past few days. Didn't write a word F/S/S -- but did manage about 500 words this morning. I need to do twice that for a few days to catch up to my goal. I have been "moodling" it though, and have scene ideas for the next several scenes, so writing (when I do it) should be fairly smooth.
Still camera shopping and am determined to buy something in the next few weeks. For those of you who take pictures -- remind me again what kind of camera you have and what you do and don't like about it. Maybe mention what you'd buy in a perfect world.
What I want is a simple, "point and shoot" camera (with a fairly high pixel resolution) that takes good close-ups. While I won't say price is no object, I am willing to pay a little more for a higher quality item.
So ... please, leave suggestions in comments!
You Should Sing in the Car
You may not be ready for your big stage debut, but you're a decent singer.
You can carry a tune, and you should be proud to have others here you sing.
Whenever a favorite song comes on the radio, crank it up and start singing.
Whether you're alone or with friends, belt it out. Singing is an awesome release.
I sing all over the place: in the car, in the store, in the house. It's a great way to embarrass my kid. :-)
