Work in progress. I wanted to paint something completely different, but then I discovered the excess of yellow paints and the plans got changed.

Two of my short stories are going to get printed later this year and my 'choose your own adventure' game is being considered for the special issue. I should be more excited, but dread every minute of it. kleinbl00 helped me get over the initial "how do I talk with editors?" problems and it can't be understated. Thanks once again!

Night shifts at the store are fucking up my sense of time. It's a blur of sudoku, crosswords, dicking around with my coding projects and being slightly shocked when a client enters. There's literally no reason for this place to be open at night, but I'm not going to raise this issue.

Beyond joining Hubski...

Family: Saturday evening got to keep my grandson overnight. It is quite the experience when you look forward to an infant spending the night. As a parent, you treasure the nights when the infant stays with someone else. I often come home from work to find my wife fawning all over our grandson. // My son didn't get his license until he was in his twenties. So Sunday I got to spend an hour with him showing him how to change the various break light, turn signal, and parking light bulbs. He also filled his windshield washer resevoir. Good bonding moment. // My wife signed us up for a farm share this summer. First batch of veggies came in last week but we were so busy we didn't have a chance to cook anything. Ended up giving most of them various family members. I kept the chives and romain lettuce for us and made some salads.

Work: I continue to love my job and the people I work with. The organization is going through a tough time right now financially, so they have been making a number of changes and attempting to button up some of the holes. A lot of changes.

Friends: I went to Burlington Vermont with a bunch of mountain biking friends the week before, but not to mountain bike. We camped out on North Beach and rode bikes around town hitting the different breweries. It was a gorgeous day out and the company was awesome. This was our second annual rail trail brewery tour. I can't wait to see what they plan for next year. // Tonight I am going to a friends house to play some cribbage and perhaps a game of Ogre (pocket version from a few years ago). He usually has an incredible selection of IPA's to choose from. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Community: Spent Saturday at an all-day event with the youth athletic team I coach. The kids performed well and ended their spring season on a high note. I am going to miss those that are aging out of the program. But, in six weeks the next batch starts!
