Back to school

Well, I made it through the day yesterday without feeling overly tired.  I was up at 4 AM and we headed off to bed at 9 PM (after watching Tivo’d episodes of Big Love and Battlestar Galactica).  I didn’t sleep great last night, but my body is still adjusting to the new schedule.  Busy day in the office.  I was in meeting from 11 AM until 4 PM, and as usual, I was the one doing much of the talking.  It was nice to get home from the office and not have to feel bad about not going to the gym–I’d already gone!

We enrolled in a series of "new baby" classes last night.  There’s a 4-day course on childbirth preparation, another course on baby care, and another is a tour of the hospital. These courses take place in the evenings and don’t start until April.  So when the spring arrives, it’s back to school for us.

Apex Magazine is having a special issue and I have a story that fits the theme of the issue well.  Last night I submitted the story to Apex for the special issue.  I also got some additional feedback on "Homecoming" and plan to spend the rest of the week working the various suggestions I’ve received into the story.  I’d like to get it into the mail as soon as possible, but I’d like to make sure it works well before I do.
