This afternoon, just in the nick of time before they slammed the doors shut at the post office, I drove on the hazardous roads to mail the latest finished transcript -- 189 pp. Just before then, I turned down a job for tomorrow, giving the reason that I have too many pages to do. After I slid back home and made it into my garage (just barely), I did an inventory, thinking that maybe I had overreacted.
900 pages pending. At least 600 of which they want yesterday.
Nope. Not overreacting.
It's 10:59 p.m. and I just had a "second dinner" at the computer for the evening -- a bowl of Campbell's Chunky Chicken Noodle (please don't point out that there is nothing good in there for me, and salt and wheat are mine enemies. I already know this.) The first "dinner" was jarlsberg melted on Ezekiel bread and a glass of white wine. Tell me I don't know how to live!
Grey's Anatomy obliged by showing a rerun tonight. (It's an OUTRAGE!)
And Melissa made me grin from ear to ear by sending me this:
I'm not sure if you can appreciate what it is, what with the flash and the bad photo, but look, she made a tiny red scarf and put it inside a clear glass ornament. Yup. Grinning from ear to ear, that's me. I'll get a better photo of it later. Mel has been a great supporter of the Red Scarf Project right from the beginning, has knitted several scarves for it herself, as well as created care tags and done various and sundry other tasks for the project.
Speaking of Red Scarf, have you seen the Gallery of Completed Scarves lately?!
