Friday Stuff

What’s on the iPod: I Felt Like Jesus by Chuck Prophet

No work today. Instead, I’ll be on my way to Portland, Maine for the stepdaughter’s college graduation. Very much looking forward to it. She’s worked so hard to get to this point, and she’s already seeing a payoff. She is the only one of three college graduates in the family who is graduating with a great job already in hand. Amen!

I was handed yet another project yesterday — the annual Big One. Super that they need it by June 1. Not super that I won’t be here. We’re off to Vancouver next weekend, and while I do intend to work the first week, the second week will be spent in the Rockies and very much disconnected. Still, the client promised to work around my schedule, so I’m hoping to get at least an extra week on the deadline.

Since it’s Friday and we should all be dancing, I’ll leave you with this video. The song is one of my favorites, but the kid dancing is just the epitome of free expression. Stick around for the one-handed handstand.

Happy weekend, everyone. And Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, even those whose children are of the four-legged variety.

    Have a great time in Portland. It's one of my favorite cities.

    I'm just glad it's not supposed to rain again this weekend. I plan to do more exterior painting – and catch up on some work.

    Yes. Working on the weekend. It's been a couple weeks since I've done that. Amazing how taking one and a half days off can really put you behind on deadlines! With two articles due this coming week and two the next,I have a lot of work to catch up on. I love being busy, but wish I had better time management skills so I could get the painting done, too. (Notice how I didn't mention anything about cleaning?)

    Oh! One other thing I'm doing this weekend and all of next week: Adding the #WritersWorthWeek hashtag to as many writing-related Tweets as possible.

    Hope you'll all mark the occasion in similar ways!

    Enjoy your time off. I'm a big fan of time off, vacations, twiddling one's thumbs, clients that pay on time, and of course, you, Lori, who puts it all into perspective. Chuck
