Sleepy Hosea and Christmas Shopping

Blogspot has been down the last few times I've tried to blog, so I'll catch up on this entry...

I've been told, recently, that I'm similar to the character Michael Hosea in the novel Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. Having never read the book, curiosity got the better of me, and I'm reading it. A copy of it was supplied by the same person who informed me of the similarities.

I'm about halfway through, and I now believe it to be a compliment. Although, I am nowhere near as religious as this character appears to be. Maybe at one time I was close, but even then, I was more worldly. I have known a few Angels in my day, but I'm not willing to let them tear my life apart over and again the way this character does. It's very flattering, though.

Lately, I find myself getting sleepy a lot earlier than I ever have. I guess it's all the lack of sleep during school catching up with me. I can hardly stay up past 9pm. I used to be up until midnight almost every night. I'll eventually catch up on my sleep, I'm sure, though. Either that, or I'm just getting old.

I think I'm addicted to caffiene. I can't make it throught the day without several coke-type beverages. I know that's got to be bad for me. Bad for teeth and health.

Christmas eve will be 10 months from the date I quit smoking. I haven't had any kind of cigarette, tobacco or smoke since then. I'm proud. I was thinking, on my way home from work yesterday, about how much better I feel, and how bad I used to feel all the time. Aside from a stuffy nose for a week in October, I haven't been sick since I quit. And I think the stuffy nose came from being around cigarette smoke at the Metal Masquerade.

Believe it or not, I've gotten almost ALL of my Christmas shopping done already!!! My baby and I knocked most of it out Monday. All that's left is the wrapping.
