Family and Friends is my everyday journal. Captain's Log is where I pontificate on religion and politics.

Somewhat back to normal

  • Finally living without pain.
  • Robyn, who taught next to me last year, left school this week and won't be coming back. She's been fighting cancer -- the battle is nearly over. I didn't get a chance to tell her goodbye.
  • Got my one dollar advance in the mail. I was also given choices on my novel. Have them proofread it, which could take up to six months, or have it set "as is", I chose the "as is" having full confidence in Grinnygranny's proofreading ability. They will be e-mailing me the final proofs and when I sign off on them they go to press. The book could be out by Thanksgiving or Christmas.
  • Got tied up and missed Southwest Writers today. Helped E install a new fawcet in the master bathroom.
  • MIL finally got the stump from the old cottonwood tree taken out. Her neighbors will be happy as they can work on the fence now.
  • Had a bit of a bust today on the balloon fiesta. Rain and wind put a damper on the first mass assension, hoping tomorrow will be better and we'll be able to get good pictures.
