Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Day One

This morning it felt a little weird to not be going into work. When did I become that guy? I didn't get up early. Instead I let myself sleep in.

On the plus side, last night I need a lot fewer pain meds. So there's that. Here's hoping I'm on the road to mending. That would seriously be a good thing.

Today a client called needing a quick logo email. I called him back saying I sent it out. He told me he had lent out my card to several people recently. I asked if he needed an apprentice cabinet maker. We joked a little.

So maybe a little freelance work might come my way. Of course, it's because I tried to pull a double recursive Murphy's Law by focusing on freelancing this year in a stealth attempt to have another good writing year. But as we all know, Murphy's Law isn't recursive.

I made a mistake by not calling the other company today. I'll need to rectify that tomorrow.

I did spend part of today making progress on critiquing a manuscript that I promised back a few months ago.

Still feeling out of sorts. Hopefully I won't get used to that.

Adium was too quiet today. Godspeed on the job search.

Dan, yep. And thanks.

Say, let me know if you see me popping up there as I don't think I got rid of my account off the old machine.

Will do. Didn't see any activity on it today but will keep my eye on it.
