I need a bit of journal therapy. I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends. No, I HAVE been burning it at both ends. Saturday I decided to get back to some basics that I’ve been neglecting and I started cooking again. I’m a good cook, darnitall. So what if I’m exhausted and it takes until 8:00 to eat, at least I feel like a human being doing something I love that happens to be good for myself and my family.
I’ve finished a record number of Web sites in the past few months (all counted, four) and am knee deep in several others.
Speaking of finished projects… I can’t believe this, but I was told that one of the projects I listed in my meager online portfolio had to be removed because a certain client wasn’t to be mentioned by name. Like I buy that for a minute. Never mind that no one touched it but me. But, whatever. I’m sure the people making the request have their reasons, which will include using it when it suits their purpose. (Links respectfully removed.)
I know, that was a low blow. Maybe I wouldn’t care so much if they didn’t still owe me a check that’s now 90 days overdue.
Dean’s taking karate and loving it. They’ve got them in a leadership training program for those select students… select parent who agree to pay an extra $45 a month. Man, I’ve got to chill out. So much for journal therapy.
I heard from a great friend by postcard from l’Alpe d’Huez and by e-mail in the same day. I hope some of that factors into my dreams tonight. That should help cheer me up. France… Lance…
