Yes, I am still awake. I figure, I might as well wrote if I’m not going to sleep, right?

Anyway, can I just say how excited I am that it is FINALLY November? October was the worst month for me in at least 5 years. I am so glad it is over. Not to say there weren’t great parts to it, but overall, if I never see this October again it will have been too soon.

In exactly 2 weeks I am homeward bound (yes, like the movie). I have a short list of folks I will see and a load of time spent staring at the water. For all the Northerners, I mean ocean water, with sand and all. How I miss the beach. I miss the water more than I ever thought. It’s so easy to remember how small I am, how great God is, what power He holds, just by watching the waves break. The waves can be so tame, so unpredictable, so joy giving. I am really, really looking forward to the beach.

Other news? Oil heating is expensive. All I’m going to say about THAT.

Did I mention I’m glad October is over?

Still can’t shake the desire to cry non-stop. Still not sure where it comes from. Still not willing to fully pursue it. Still annoyed when I can’t speak because my body hasn’t figured out how to cry and breathe simultaneously. Still a punk.

Well, I’m going to turn in, now. Thanks for reading. If any of you are still out there. (Sorry I never finished my ride-along stories!)

G’midnight. 😉
