sweet victory

In the hard fought thanksgiving day battle, I have emerged victorious. In an unprecedented win, I dominated the game. No one is more surprised then myself who has a long history of humiliating losses.

We had a wonderful day yesterday and everyone slowed down and relaxed a bit. I hope the rest of the weekend is as peaceful.

The turkey is happily roasting in the oven and the parade is in full swing in New York and I am trying to slow my pace down and enjoy every minute with my family. They have all gone their separate ways momentarily to get clean and dressed before the annual monopoly marathon begins. Paige has been trash talking so heavily about her future win that I am predicting she will be blown out of the water early. Crystal had such a poor outing last year that she is looking for revenge and a chance to save her tarnished reputation as the raining Thanksgiving day monopoly champion.

I am so thankful for all that I have. All the best to everyone on this wonderful day.

the longest short week ever

Well I have almost made it through this week. For a short week it has really felt long. Five pitches in two days plus a cold has really taken a toll on my voice - and I still have two pitches and a concept meeting to go today.

The studio has been pushing really hard for three weeks straight and everyone is ready for a break. I hope I can make myself relax and enjoy it. I like it when the pace is like this and don't want the studio to lose any momentum, but at the same time I think my body is telling me to stop and slow down.

Time to push out the last work of the month. Hopefully my voice will wait until tonight to go out.

back at it

Still feeling a bit under the weather but much better. Unfortunately I have passed it on to Crystal, where it has really settled in. I have two major pitches today so I think that is helping me not to think too much about how I'm feeling.

This was the first real weekend without teaching and as nice as it was I felt a bit lost and just sort of laid around which I am terrible at. I think as time goes on I will find things to replace my time I would have spent teaching.

It was nice to not have to do anything - now I am noticing all kinds of things around the house that need fixing...

a very nice time

I'm feeling a bit under the weather today. I hope that as the day goes on I will be able to rally and get something done but I am not hopeful this will happen. We had the restaurant opening last night and a very nice time was had. This might account for some of my slow thinking today. There were many nice people there and they all seemed to enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

I think I will make some tea and try to sleep.
