  16. My last workday of the week, as my day starts at 0230 and finishes by 2100, I'm going to start tomarrow. As soon as I figure out which box has my paints, which tote is my primed pile, and where to put the moving debris on my tables. At least I know I WON'T be outside tomarrow! ;)

  17. First entry has been submitted - now I need to take a break and finish up my final machinations in the financial world - just a few more dodgy investment to flog to unsuspecting widows and orphans then I've reached my quota for the year.

  18. Given how little sleep I got last night thanks to my wife's restlessness I should have gotten started. After work today.

  22. I'm going full bore to finish a batch of figures before heading off to the Shire (New Hampshire) tomorrow for Christmas. Will I make it, or will I fail ignobly and have to finish them upon my return? We shall see...
