Pluto Retrograde
Mercury DIRECT
Sunny and pleasant

I have to make a decision on a project, and I kind of want to tell the person on the other side of the table to shove it, but I’ll wait until Mercury is completely direct to make that decision. No reason to cut off my nose to spite my face, right? It could be a case of me being cranky and uncooperative (and I’m usually pretty cooperative, so I’m not sure why I’m having this reaction). Or it could be a power struggle, which is why I’m having this reaction. If it turns out to be the latter, I will walk away without regrets, but if I’m just in A Mood, it would be silly to respond simply out of that. I have to let it play out a bit more before making the final decision.

Yesterday was busy in the morning, catching up on business, doing marketing stuff, sending out a pitch, and running errands. I’m usually very organized when I run errands, figure out the most logical way to go from place to place point-to-point in a way that saves both gas and time. But I was very scattered yesterday, for some reason,and was all over the place wasting time AND gas. Frustrating. And forgot an errand, which means I have to go out and get that done today. It was also rainy and kind of icky, not the kind of day one wants to be out and running around.

On the positive side, I picked up a stack of books to replenish my reading. I’ve been reading a lot of “have-to-reads” and serious reads and client reads lately (which is a good thing), and I wanted something different. So I grabbed a stack of books that look like they’ll be light and fun.

i read the first one yesterday afternoon, giving myself the afternoon off from “have-tos” for a “want-to.” It was DEATH BY CHICK LIT by Lynn Harris, and I really enjoyed it. There’s a lot of wit and fun and warmth in it. A pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

I had a great morning’s work on the Matty book. I haven’t yet worked on the serial — I’m thinking of giving myself the weekend off to let it percolate some more, but I also don’t want to lose the momentum. I do want to get the first draft out (I HAVE to get the first draft out) pretty quickly. But I also don’t want to burn out. We’ll see how I feel as the day goes on.

I’ve got some tweaks to do to a couple of pieces to get them out of the door, and I’ve got a bunch of administrative/housekeeping stuff to get done.

I can’t believe it’s nearly June!

I do intend to have some fun this weekend, so I’m trying to clear off as much as I can this morning, and then relax!
