Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.29.04
I had a wonderful word of encouragement from
I am feeling better today about returning to work. Last night, my husband was very honest about how he’d prefer I have a stable job because he can’t guarantee he’ll even have a job at the end of January. Apparently this coming month will make or break his start-up company. I don’t know what I’ll do if work is so bad that I have to quit, despite not having another job lined up. I guess we’ll talk about it then. He has said he doesn’t want me to work for a bad manager, but I don’t know if he realizes how hard it is for me to return to this company.
I’m such a Voyager junkie. I watched the last disc of season 6 last night and I’m craving the next ones from season 7, which I won’t receive from Netflix until tomorrow.
Writing: I wrote about 2 pages yesterday (43-45). Hopefully I can get busy today and write more. I also need to write my Real Life Q&A column for RubyZine January 2005 issue. I think I will write about failure. :) I am also thinking about revising my YA short story “Jenny’s Winterball” and submitting it to some magazine for their December 2005 issue. I should probably get busy on that, finding markets for it. I think it’s too young and phoofy for Brio Magazine or Young Salvationist, probably more geared toward inner-teen age, 10-14.
Diet: doing okay, limiting myself to less than 2000 calories a day (and yes, I’ve been counting as well as I can). I should probably limit myself to 1500 calories but at least I’m not pigging out as much as I was before. I’m even eating healthy things like cottage cheese. :)
