Short Vacation – Today’s orders shipped on Monday

I’m taking my loving, talented and overworked wife on a short road trip.  We leave this morning and will return Sunday.  Orders placed today, Friday, 28 January 2011 will ship Monday, 31 January 2011. If you placed an order yesterday, Thursday, 27 January 2011, your order is on its way to the Post Office, but you will not receive a shipment notification (from me) until Monday.

Asymptotically Approaching Graduation

Recently I’ve described myself as a “full-time freelance writer and part-time student”. This semester (Fall 2010) it turns out I’m a full-time student. I just counted up my hours and after exhausting all the available digits, I removed one shoe and discovered I was taking 14 hours, which most people consider full-time status. I have had the pleasure of knowing younger, more ambitious students who were taking 20 and 24 hours in a single semester, but I think we can agree those people are crazy. Or doctors by now.
After reviewing my scholastic accomplishments with one of the fine counselors at the local community college, it occurred to me that I could graduate in the spring if I just worked a little harder. I must admit that this idea holds a certain amount of fascination.
Wish me luck!

Closed for Summer Vacation – 30 June to 12 July 2010

I’ll be closed for business from Wednesday, 30 June 2010 and back to work on Monday, 12 July 2010.  Any orders placed during that time will not be shipped until I return.

We’re packing up the family and heading north to get out of this Texas summer heat, because we heard “it’s cooler near the lake”.  See you in a couple of weeks!

A Place for Personal Notes

I just created a new category here under “News” for items of a personal nature. Obviously, there’s nothing super-secret or confidential here. It’s just for items that I would like to jot down and perhaps review at some point in the future.
