A Day In The Life...

December 1, 2006

6:30 Get up and stagger to the couch to keep my oldest son company while he gets ready for school.

6:55 Shower, etc.

7:20 Hit the office, check e-mail, look at blogs.

7:45 Wake youngest son, get breakfast around. No walk today for Frodo, it's pouring down rain.

8:40 Back in office. Work on chapter of SHADOWS. Then re-write first chapter of a second novel you're fiddling with.

10:30 Head to gym for an hour of cardio.

11:50 Lunch

12:45 Home again. Check blogs. Answer e-mail. Rewrite/edit chapter of SHADOWS.

1:30 Rewrite article about CMS competitive bidding demonstration project.

2:15. Spend some time researching possible markets and article pitches.

2:30 Interview incoming CEO of LabCorp for an article I'm writing.

3:00 Oldest son gets home. Talk to him for a few minutes.

3:10 Call literary agent and talk about current projects, strategies (such as they are) and try to get a grip on where career might actually be. (No luck with that).

3:30 Transcribe LabCorp CEO interview.

4:00 Youngest son gets home. Talk to him for a few minutes. It's more or less stopped raining, so I take Frodo for a much-needed walk.

4:30 Contemplate the meaning of life, the status of my writing career and my current malaise. Stew a bit.

4:40 Start sending off e-mails to venture capital firms to let them know that I'm now regularly covering the clinical lab industry business news for Laboratory Industry Report.

5:30 Call it a day. Read newspaper. Nag kids into doing homework and practicing their instruments.

6:00 Go out and pick up pizza.

7:00 channel surf.

7:30 Go online and do some research for novels I'm working on, look at blogs. Very restless.

8:30 Settle down to read.

10:00 Go to bed.

It's a sydrome that goes with the first really crappy day of winter. And we don't even have snow to show for it.

I, however, attended my last 5th grade concert for Clear Lake. No more musicals where the children line up behind the microphone, every one of them finding it necessary to adjst the mike.

On a brighter note, the parking lot behind Knapps and my church is cleared out. Who knows for how long.

On a lesser note, my bridge on Seymour Lk. Road is still out, forcing me and Kelly into detours that look like the bombed out roads in post-war Germany.

So. That's life in Oxford. Anyone care to join us? It just don't get no better. Really. It don't.

Leanne complained about that detour this fall whenever she took the kids to tennis at Seymour Lake Park.

Wow, anonymous, how could I fail to be enticed by an opportunity to buy insurance and prescription drugs from the same place? From some illiterate online?

I guess it's time to install an auto spam verifier.
