It feels almost like a school visit day… Up at 4 writing waiting for a Skype visit with my friends at Eubanks Intermediate School in Southlake, Texas with librarian Lucy Drenka. I was at Eubanks a few years ago and had a wonderful time. I think this Skype makes my third visit with Lucy. It was great to talk to her and her students again from my office.
I had to spent a bit of time (in the background as I wrote) putting Windows 7 on my road laptop and getting it up to date. I’ve gotten a bit smarter about this over the years. I know longer sit like a zombie watching software load. I turn my back on it and continuing doing something productive.
In spite of all of this, the writing went well today on I,Q2 today. Inching closer to the end of the story.
I’ll confess (just so you know I’m reasonably normal) that I did take a little break this evening and watched American Idol with Marie. But as I listened to the girls sing I worked on my Power Point program for Reno this coming weekend.
A lot of flights booked today. Marie’s been busy. Those little white squares on my calender are just about all filled up, or so I hear. Not very many blank squares until June. Looks like I’ll be seeing some of you very soon.
