One week...

Superman left this morning for Alaska. He didn't want to leave. I didn't want him to leave. Unfortunately, due to bills and our need for food, he had to leave. It's only for a week -- but that seems like such a long week.

I'm leaving for my parents' house with Superdog Wednesday, thank goodness, and I do hope that I'll be pleasant company instead of moody. I always get moody when Superman leaves. That's why I drink lots of mochas. That's also probably why I can't sleep at night (that and my overactive imagination, which can see monsters in the shadows -- yes, I'm a huge kid).

He's missing Thanksgiving, though, which makes me so sad -- and him, too. I'll miss Thanksgiving with his family, too, as I'll be in my parents' hometown. I'll miss seeing them, but the drive to and from our homes multiple times is really too much -- especially since Superdog, naturally, will come with me.

So please pray for me and Superman this week. He has lots of warm clothes, though, so hopefully he'll stay warm, and I made him promise to take some pictures of the landscape (and bring back Alaska coffee and a magnet).

Also, another prayer request: We recently sent off a query letter for our book to an agency, and we're hoping we get some positive results. This was our favorite agency, so we wanted to try them first, but if it doesn't work, we're probably going to do a mass query to several agents. Anyway, if you could keep that in your prayers, too, I'd be very appreciative.

Let's see...and here are some pre-Christmas pics of Superdog... she was not pleased.

And here's a picture from a couple of Christmases ago...How scary is that Santa?

someone needs to tell santa to cross his legs or somethin'? oh terrible of me. but come on!!!

and is your dog sticking her tongue out at you in that first photo? bwhaha. we do the same torture to our poor pooches. my son put one on our labradoodle last night and he was so obsessed with his tennis ball, he didn't even fight it!

poor thing, being without your hubby this week. that would be depressing. glad to hear you get to be with family though. and what a man for making a sacrifice. hope it blesses you both a million times over!

Um, yeah. Scary Santa, indeed. But super cute Superdog!

I hate it when my hubby is gone, and I'm so sorry yours is going to miss Thanksgiving. Bummer! At least you do get to be with family, although I realize it's not quite the same.

Sorry he won't be home for Thanksgiving.

And the dog is just too much ... so cute, Santa ... not so much.

hugs and prayers for your super family!

here i was just feeling sorry for myself for missing Thanksgiving with my parents - i can't imagine how difficult not spending it with our husband would be.

Sorry to hear that he's gone, but here's praying that he'll stay safe. I hope all goes well with your book!

Ok, Santa was prettty scary! You and Superdog have a safe and wonderful trip as well. Sad you miss Superman... Alaska... Wow! Excited on the book front! Tell me more when you get back. Maybe you and my sis can discuss your writing woes... ha! (Hope there are none to speak of.) Thx for leaving the comment for her.

BTW: I'm so adding you to my blogroll.

Mochas and Alaskan Coffee sound great!
