April Fools’ Day

Happy April FoolsDay everyone! I was tempted to post that the Rainbow Room Birthday Bash had been canceled, but I was afraid I’d freak out too many people and so I’ve forgone having my fun in order that you all maintain your sanity.

I’ve already had a busy morning at work, developing some reports with SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services). Later today there is a paper airplane contest here, but I’m not sure I’m going to have time to make it. I was thinking about spending some of my lunchtime on the novel outline. Remember, I’d like to have my 44 sentences (or so) done today. I’m also eager to do more work on my story, “If By Reason of Strength…” and I may try for some wordage there, too.

Several bills due today, none of which I had to remember to pay because they were all paid automatically through my BillPay service. I’ve been using the service for years, but just last month, switched to have it pay bills automatically. Very convenient. Saves time.

It’s rainy and overcast here today, as April should be, I suppose. But warm. Temperatures will be up around 70 degrees.
