Day 7 Journal

I knew I needed to come up with a better heading system for these posts. Yes, I've already skipped a day, which I had a feeling would happen sooner rather than later.

Tuesday has also historically been a day off for me. You're probably wondering how many days off I have each week. Just two, the same as if I worked a traditional job. But instead of having weekends, my days off are Sunday and Tuesday.

Yesterday was worse than a normal Tuesday, In addition to my regularly scheduled events, the brats from next door were up, outside, and making noise until midnight on Monday. Of necessity, that meant a short night's sleep and a tired day on Tuesday. And to think, I'd just finished telling my son the day before that the noise wasn't as bad as I'd thought when I first moved here.

Anyway, today went a lot better. I spent over three hours proofreading and editing. One chapter in particular seemed to need a lot of work. The subsequent chapters went a lot faster, but it's still going to take a few more days.

I spent another half hour to an hour compiling a list of proofreaders. I meant to email them as to rates and availability tonight, but that didn't happen.

I spent a half hour viewing a tutorial on an email list service that I've been thinking of trying. It looks intriguing, but I hate to move my list. Of course, better to move it now when it's small than later when it's grown larger.

A Red Sox loss and some mindless TV to help me unwind. All in all, not a bad day.
