Well, to all the moms out there, I hope you had a happy and wonderful Mother’s Day.
To the rest of you, I hope you had a good weekend, too. I did. I spent time with my mother of choice, my WIP, Angry Birds and my kids. What more can I ask?
Had a great day at work on Friday after all. I found one possible solution for my VWD2010 issue (remember my discussion of that?), and so I emailed myself a copy of the file which somehow got damaged and the location path so I could find it again. When I got to work I deleted the file in question, replaced it with the new file from home, and BANG! The software worked again! YEE-HA!
I coded my happy butt off all day. Finally got some ground gained, too.
On the WIP, I finished up the fifth chapter for editing and now I’m tackling the rewrites on chapter six. Some of you expressed pretty strong concerns about it, but my wife thought it actually wasn’t that bad. Hm. So I’ll tweak it and see what we come up with, but I spent part of my weekend outlining that portion of the book so I’d have a plan. Not having one has really caused me problems in the past.
I’ve been having to fight the woodworking bug too. I can’t do it – no tools, no space or money for tools,and did I mention we live in an apartment? – but man oh man, it was one of my most favorite things to do ever. I didn’t know how consuming a hobby could be, and even though I wasn’t ever a “master” of it, I did make things worth showing and selling and loved almost every minute of it. Almost. (Yeah…I remember the mistakes too.)
Other than that, I really didn’t do much. I sat around and waited for the love of my life to tell me what she wanted for Mother’s Day, wanted to do for Mother’s Day, or even if she just wanted me to take the kids away from the house for the day so she could do what she wanted for a few hours.
How’d you spend your time this weekend?
