Caught The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
After over a week of work, finally finished re-grouting and re-caulking the bathroom; this while juggling two important clients, getting the book settled, and my usual fun and games.
In the end, it was worth it as I have a nice sparkling bathroom now equipped with a brand new water softener system. And the wife made me meatloaf from America’s Test Kitchen, which is amazingly good.
Me: Man, my back is killing me. What do I get in return for all this labor?
Her: Loaves. Made of meat.
Me: OK, that’s fair.
Speaking of the book, I just found out it’s available for pre-order on iTunes. You can even download the first 25% of it now. Pretty exciting – at least for me.
When she got back, we realize they gave her the wrong stuff so we both had to go down there to sort it out.
Her: Are you mad (at them)?
Me: Furious. I don’t understand how businesses can survive being so incompetent.
As for my business, because a good chunk of what I earn is project-oriented, four times a year I have to write ginormous checks to the government to pay my taxes. Coupled with the new project, ended up writing a whole bunch of huge checks this weekend.
Me: So, we’re poor again.
Her: But happy!
Did manage to catch The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which we loved. Definitely worth the ticket price.
All-in-all, happy, indeed.
Location: finishing one thing, starting another
Music: The dragonfly it ran away, but it came back with a story to say
