Just set a goal date of September 15th for SKY to be done. Barring any natural disasters, I think this is a very doable goal. It would consist of 500 words a day while in school and 1000 on the week and a half break I have between semesters, plus it will give me a week or so to do clean up editing. Had an amazing dream last night that needs to be written into a story, so there is even more motivation to get this book done, so I can finally move on.

Mid-terms were last week. I got 100% on both my History and Geology tests so I am very happy. I have one more test in History and two in Geology to deal with and three weeks of school left. This semester has been crazy doing both classes in 7 1/2 weeks, but it has also been nice because when I have my comprehensive final it won't have been as long to have to remember the stuff. The History grade makes me happy because that is my major. In Fall I will be taking 3 History classes and an introduction to Homeland Security class. A full schedule especially with soccer and the kids back in school and well everything. I think the next two years are going to be like this, me in a daze running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but hopefully somewhere in there I will manage to finish my rewrite of SKY and start my next story because I am coming up with ideas faster than I can write anything down!

This morning we needed to go to the bank and the store. Got up early and took the kids while they were still in their jammies. At the store I told each child they could pick one doughnut. Yes, I know super nutritious breakfast. While looking over the chocolate, sugar, jelly filled masses, the girls discovered doughnut holes. Their first question was "Are those what we had in Germany?" Sadly, my answer was no. They are nothing like the perfectly rounded, lightly powder sugared quark balls that we had at the bakeries around Germany. In fact, nothing is like the glorious feasts we had on our trip. Here are just a few of the delicacies we got to indulge in.
