I've gotta get out of here. I got up later than I have been, which I don't mind, but then just hung around, mostly. I'm dressed now, need to put moisturizer on the face, then get out. I need to call cingular about billing errors today. I am doing better about dealing with these things before it's too late.

Last night I put a bunch of leftover wood in the trash. I had been saving it for some future project but now realize it would be a miracle if I used it at all, and specifically if the sizes and types of wood suited any project I'd make. I hate to waste things like that but perhaps it won't be wasted. Maybe it will be pulled out and re-used somehow.

back home

I dropped off another bag of stuff at Goodwill. I am seriously considering finding another way to drop off or have stuff picked up simply because the guy who is usually there is so incapable of normal communication. I wonder why this should even bother me.

I scribbled more changes to the review at lunch time today. I need to wrap the baby up and send it off for better or worse. Hope it flies as is. And then I need to remember to pick up a copy of the paper this thursday, cut out the article for my notebook.

It occurs to me that my cell phone piece might go into the AARP magazine. What's it called now? I can't remember. All these names are designed so that we baby-boomers won't think we're getting old. The local magazine is called "Plus". It used to be "Senior". That's just a no-no.

gotta do it

I have been stalling, not wanting to do a weightlifting video. So here I am, watching Law & Order on mute but not really watching it. I am in shorts & shoes and ready to do a workout but keep checking mail instead or playing solitaire. It's weird that now I have time, more time, to do stuff, and I don't.

whew

I was having trouble posting after putting up that post-dated entry. LiveJournal support came through, and in record time.

I did Stacey's workout and am glad of it. I always enjoy it, fundamentally. And as I go through it I become more and more immersed in it. I can never stay disconnected.

I'm about ready to send in the review. But perhaps I'll go to bed, let it rest, reread it in the morning and then send it. I've got it down to 667 words from well over 800, so chances are pretty good that nobody will do any more editing.
