I haven't been much up to updating lately, and I don't think I will be for a little while. I've got a convention in less than a week and to say that I'm not ready would be a gross understatement. I really have no idea how I'm going to get through this week.

I also have a TON of other things to get done, and now I can't find the cord to my scanner.

Room cleaning today and tomorrow. It's got to be either in my bedroom or the living room.
I'm too tired. Can't sleep, either. Stress does this to me. I hate sleeping pills. They always put me too deep into sleep, and I generally don't dream when I take them, but if I can't get a full night's sleep tonight, I'll have to resort to that.

In other words, If everyone could please send their prayers to those in the Red River Valley? I know a lot of you are used to natural disasters where you live, but if you've never experienced the flooding of a river, it's really terrifying. Thousands of people have been working 'round the clock for weeks building up the dikes and trying to prepare to hold the waters back, but already the river has risen to almost an inch above what it was during the floods in 1997. And it's at the highest level ever recorded.

I have friends and family in the area - most have evacuated, but some are staying behind to keep filling sandbags and help in the efforts. It's also bitterly cold there, and it looks like they might get more snow.

So, any well-wishes and prayers will be welcome, I'm sure.
