Surviving, scheduling

Well, I survived the first day at the new Day Job. Actually, as I was telling Elizabeth this morning, yesterday had to be the least-stressful first day I've ever had. I was familiar with the environment already, having worked on their massive campus a year and a half ago, and most of all, my co-workers are very cool and made me feel right at home. I'm looking forward to being there as long as they'll have me. :)

I got up early yesterday and did more copy-editing to the SF novel, really enjoying the 5-6:30 a.m. time slot for writing, just like old times (hell, I was awake anyway, thinking about the new job and all).

Once Elizabeth starts her new job in February, and she has to be there at work at 7 a.m.(!), I can move to that schedule for good -- write from 5-6:30 a.m., workout, walk the dog, head to work and get there by 9 a.m. Right now, theoretically at least, we're getting up to work out at 5:30, so I don't get my early-morning writing time, which I really miss.

Speaking of working out and health, I've lost (according to our admittedly unreliable, slightly evil electronic scale) 13 pounds so far this year! We've mostly been watching what we eat, adding up points with one of those Weight Watchers slide-rule thingies, and it really works. Just have to keep exercising.

As you can see, I'm all about having a schedule! Though I already miss my "Days of Leisure" from mid-October of last year to early January of this year... Sigh...

Have a good day, all! Thanks again for the support! It means a lot to me. Later...
