Sunny and hot

Still rather feel like I got run over by a truck.

On the upside, Casino Night was a success. We had a good turnout, people had a great time. The dealers were great, the music mix was great, the Milbilly Margarita was a big hit. So, in spite of the stress going into the night, it was terrific.

I was home by about midnight; up early on Saturday. Managed to survive work, although I wasn’t at my best, and am grateful to my co-workers for picking up the slack. No, I was not hung over — I was careful Friday night!

I had to run some errands, and then went to bed early. Slept for nearly twelve hours, but wasn’t much good on Sunday. The entire month caught up with me. I managed to work on some revisions, but that was about it.

Sunday night, we went to dinner at the home of some friends. Came home and fell into bed. Monday, I got the rented glasses back to Party Cape Cod, went home and was done for the day. Managed a bit of editing, but that was all.

Up early Tuesday. Got some decent writing done in the morning. The furnace guy came to do routine maintenance, and after that, I headed to Buzzards Bay for a strategic planning meeting. It was long, but, hopefully, we got somewhere. A smaller group will meet next week to take the next step.

I’ve been watching ENDEAVOR for the past few days. There’s a lot I like about it — the acting, the writing. Some of the direction is a little heavy-handed, but it certainly makes me want to go back and watch the seasons of MORSE.

Finally realized what the Death card indicated, coming up all last week. Difficult, painful decision, but it had to be made. It will be implemented over the next couple of months, hopefully gently, and the fact it has to be done breaks my heart. But it’s necessary, in the long run, for everyone involved. It also means I have to keep a secret for the next few months, while I wind up some commitments, in order to cause the least harm possible.

No one ever said life was easy.

It will definitely be useful in the writing down the line, but it’s not much fun living it right now.

On the upside, this morning, I did a revision of a screenplay. Made a few internal cuts, but feel good about it. Will put in the changes, do the registration paperwork with the Guild, and out it goes.

Hope your September is starting beautifully, and that it only gets better!
