Work Update

The other project I was invited to work on that was supposed to come after ESTC has been temporarily put on hold (not dead, I’m told, just resting for an undefined period of time), so I won’t be leaping from writing one contracted book into another this fall. I’m a bit disappointed, because hey, it’s work and I like the subject a lot, but at the same time I’m thankful, because taking a couple of months off will be very, very nice and also good for my mental health. I’ll be able to focus on writing other books again, like Swan Sister, and editing the other ones lying around here. Plus I’ll finally get the down time of Liam being at daycare a couple of days a week without having to formally work those days. I can’t complain about the timing of contracts falling into my lap right when Liam started daycare, but a bit of a break would have been nice.

Okay: off to get the boy. And to fill the gas tank to the brim with gas that’s priced at 97 cents per litre along the way! Nice timing, what with our long drive coming up.

    I have to say that it’s the one thing I’m going to miss about Toronto. I filled my tank up at 86.5 last night.

    It gave me an inordinate amount of pleasure to see the fuel indicator firmly on the other side of Full. This tank hasn’t been full since, oh, our last trip to Toronto.

    I was delighted to note on my trip out on Monday that there was no “1.” on the signs at the gas stations. I hope it stays this way for a while.
