So, as noted, I'm still working hard. This week's tasks:
- Entering assessment data for the Math Practice boss
- Turning the dry drug-prevention report into a jazzy Web piece (I met with the clients last week; they're great; I can totally do this)
- Writing an overview of our Math Practice goals to give to teachers
- Finally checking in with dear Bev on a writing project she has in mind
One thing I'm proud about is that a guy I've done a little work for e-mailed me and asked me to edit an article. I told him that I was now booking into mid-April and I understood if he didn't want to wait that long. (This was huge for me; I almost never say no to clients, and I really wanted this job.) He wrote back, "Sounds fine. Mid-April isn't that far, and I know we like your work." !!!!!! Score!
I also got a note from a former client who's moved to California, who wants to book me for a huge job in May. So, it sounds like I will have a nice steady stream of employment for the near future, which is awesomely cool. Is this the sign from God I was looking for?!
Sadly, this week my kids are on school break again, but I won't be able to spend much time with them. This week the village can raise them.
I'm also coming to terms with the fact that I have little to no interest in returning to my novel. I have this feeling of "tried that, not for me." This is just a glimmer of a feeling at present, and obviously I need to give it more thought. Stay tuned . . .
In happier news, my darling friend Bride Boy is coming to visit me in a couple of weeks! I haven't seen him since Mimosa was a toddler in a stroller, and I am crazy excited.
Will the books be out of my dining room by then? Place your bets now!

p.s. Weight loss? I'm sorry, what?
