Up just before 6 AM with a killer stomach ache, the first one in a really long time. Eventually it went away. I was good today about meals. 5 small meals beginning around 7 AM and spread about every three hours throughout the day. For dinner I made chicken and had what was left of my apple, ale and cheddar soup. Kelly was craving noodles and peas and so I made those for her as well.
Productive day at the office. For some reason, I didn’t think I had any meetings today, but I turned out to have plenty. Still managed to get in a solid day’s work. Also made some good notes for the new story, including what I think will be the opening line. Looking forward to getting started on that as soon as the workshop story is in the mail.
Speaking of mail, I got stamps today. They charge a $0.50 service charge for stamps atHarris Teeters. I didn’t think that was allowed but I was in too much of a hurry to debate the issue. I mailed some more thank you notes (only one more small batch to go). I also paid a couple of bills. Dad called and I spoke with him for a little while. He was at the airport in Seattle, returning from his trip up there. Also a call from mabfan , who was very patient in answering my physics question.
After work I went to the gym, then home, cooked dinner. Kelly went to bed early and I started reading joe_haldeman ‘s Marsbound. Through the first 35 pages and maybe another 15 or 20 before I call it a night. (Yes, I gave up on the Franklin Roosevelt book–for the second time now.)
