First of all, the Cubs won the World Series! That was hands down one of the most exciting final games I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of games. This time, I also remembered to ask my husband to record the game, so I could watch the last two innings. The game ran late, and my daughter had to go to bed, so I couldn't finish watching it all. I can't wait to for tonight, after I come home from work; maybe, I will even get some goat birria with some frijoles and tortillas.
Of course, the festivities in Humboldt Park made it nearly impossible to sleep, but for once, the annoying neighbors with their invasion-sounding fireworks did not annoy me. In fact, I almost went outside to celebrate myself, but it was very late, and my whole family was passed out by midnight.
On another happy note, I managed to work on "Wolf Trek" yesterday. I am learning to sneak in writing when I can, and I got in a good solid 40 minutes. The story is coming along nicely, but I may start recording ideas into the phone because I don't always have a little notebook on hand, you know that little notebook writers are supposed to carry around.
This Sunday, I am also having dinner with the future editor Adam Gottlieb.
We haven't had a dinner guest in ages, and I am totally motivated to put the house in order. I also have a goal to finish the story, completely. Then I can say, "Finished!"
Here's to making dreams come true! Cubs 2016 World Champions! Que vivan los Cachorros!
