Quite A Week

The heading says it all. I worked my butt off at work and at home this past week. There wasn't a lot of downtime becuase I was busy at work, busy finishing my editing at home, and I was sick. The sickness part was really only the first part of the week, but it's still making me tired early in the evening. Despite that I had a number of nights of staying up until 2:00am to finish my editing. I was able to sleep in Saturday and Sunday though, so that's okay.

Friday night I went to Jen and Hays' for a pumpkin-carving party. I was wiped out from working all week and didn't really feel like carving a pumpkin, so I didn't do that. What I did instead was hang out with everyone and had one of the best, most relaxing times I've had in a while. What a great bunch of people. I think I nearly burst something from laughing.

Saturday I ran around to do my regular Saturday routine, but also picked up some produce from the Public Market (mmm, green beans) and cobbled together pieces for my Halloween costume. I have to tell you, I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to put more thought into my costume, but I've been so busy that I had to repeat a costume and didn't actually get any of the other pieces for it until the day of the party. Terrible. Happily, it all worked out all right. I went as a woman -- I'll post some pictures if/when I can -- and it was ridiculous.

There were a number of very good costumes at the party. Again, if I get the chance I'll post some shots from the evening.

The big news of the evening was the release of Katie's CD. I picked up a couple of copies and it's fantastic. If any of you are looking for a few new songs to check out, email her and order it. You won't be disappointed. Right now I'm wracking my brain trying to think of any recording contacts I have and I think I may have one tenuous one that I'm going to try to exploit.

It appears that I'm firmly below 300 pounds (well, at least I have been for the past few days), so it looks like this new diet has managed to get me past the plateau that I've been on for, wow, about 3 years. Sounds more like a continent than a plateau. Anyway, I'm very calm about it, but really amazed and pleased at the same time. I exit "stage one" tomorrow and move onto "stage two", hopefully I can maintain this momentum. I'm excited to be past the plateau because usually that means I'm good for another 20-30 pounds before I hit another one. If that happens I'd be within striking distance of my goal.

Tonight I'm relaxing a bit before I delve into some housecleaning that I've let slide. I need to go through some boxes that have been sitting on my floor for about a month. I'm sure I have papers, toys, and games in there that I haven't touched for 3-12 years. Garbage time methinks. I'm also looking forward to starting something all my own. I don't know if it will be a comic script, movie script, book, learning some Web programming, or what, but it should be fun.

The portrait-y looking shot of you from the pumpkin carving night is a great photo.
