Evening wrapup

Busy, but productive, day at work today. I managed to get a lot of SQL code written on a project that has been in the planning and design phases for months and has finally entered the development phase. That felt good.

Last night, I finished the first draft of a new story called, “The Order of the Golden Watch”, a time-travel tale. It’s about 5,300 words. Today, I began proofreading it and this evening, I started on the final draft. I’m hoping to get it finished up this week so I can send it off for consideration. Then it’s back to work on the novel, Graveyard Shift.

I managed to get a little bit of holiday shopping done today. I still have a fair amount more to do, but at least I made some progress.

In all of my busyness yesterday, I forgot to call Dad and wish him a happy birthday. I woke up at 1 AM and remembered. I felt bad about that and called him first thing this morning.

I’m off to bed. I’ve been getting to sleep around 10 PM these last few nights, and since I’m getting up at 4:20 AM, I could use a little more sleep, so tonight, I told myself I was getting to bed as close to 8:30 as I could. I’ve just got to pack my lunch and then lights out.
