Two hailstorms in Texas this week, one after another. So, I spent my week trying to schedule increasingly frustrated customers with increasingly busy glass shops. As you can imagine, this didn’t go particularly well. But people (mostly) understood that they weren’t the only ones in trouble. I hope the extra techs arrive soon… Even the rentals are completely booked out. And they’re expecting Rainstorms this weekend.

 

Finished Moon is a Harsh Mistress this week, and now I’m into Number of the Beast – the most science-y of his books so far – time, space, and universes colliding, not to mention four narrators. It’s a tough one, but I’m managing through. Another great D&D night on Tuesday with adorable puppy and jealous older puppy included. Had fun at the party with friends last weekend, despite having to leave early to get up for work next day. One more day at Sprawl and I’m done for the week. Looking forward to sleeping on Saturday, as well some fun with friends this weekend.

I applied to two jobs this week. One doing data entry at a place that helps people and one as a proofreader for Mongoose Publishing. The latter of which seems more likely to work out, as they already emailed me back with details and I’ve expressed my continued interest. So, that will be cool.

Back on the yoga, tai chi, and meditation train, as well as working harder to eat better. Yes, I still have more Girlscout cookies to go, but I’ll be better about rationing the rest. Gotta have some incentives.

Spring is definitely here. 80 degree weather this week. And tornadoes. Mustn’t forget the tornadoes and hail on Sunday. But the birds are happy and the grass is green. I have even opened the blinds and turned on the AC.

Hurray! 150 Posts!

Shots in the dark are still waiting to land. Insurance reconsidered the bill, so they really do owe us money, so that’ll help pay other bills. Another friend considering hiring me for web design. And the gift of a blender from someone who found she did not need to keep hers. A decent week, all in all.

I’ve felt rather fidgety all week. The weather won’t make up its mind if it is spring or not yet. Yesterday, most of all. It went from 70 degrees and sunny, to windy and overcast with tornado watches, to pouring down rain, to hailing, back to 70 degrees and sunny and then down to freezing and snow. I feel like that, too. I’m on the verge of new beginnings, but I keep going backwards or round in circles, not quite ready to take that last, fully committed step into Spring. I still have the lethargy of winter hibernation tugging at me, whispering sweet dreams in my ears, if only I’d lay back down.

So much to do, so little time. I have to wake up now and get moving. Set deadlines, meet goals, create the life I want to live. All that stuff I keep talking about. Time to Do.
