Cloudy and pleasant
Yesterday was a whirlwind — up early, trying to write, going to work, preparing for the event, plus helping wherever I could to get the ARIS report finished. It was a steadily busy day, but good busy.
Swung by the house — Costume Imp had slept all day until about an hour before I came to pick him up — we loaded the car, headed back to the library, we set up, talked through a few things, and then just went with the energy of the room. We had a good crowd, more kids than we expected. We told war stories, explained how some of the mechanics work backstage, etc. The audience seemed to really enjoy it, and we had fun presenting.
Home, unloaded the car, martinis and stories on the deck. I collapsed into bed about midnight.
Up early this morning, wrote about 1500 words on INITIATE (making up for the slow day yesterday morning). Very tired, have a pounding headache, and am losing my voice.
Just have to make it through today and the Mermaid Ball tomorrow — which will be a long day — and I can sleep in on Saturday.
Fingers crossed. It should be a beautiful event tomorrow, but the Crazy Train seems to think I’m a station stop on the route today.
