Spring Break

It’s Spring Break here in the Maryland area, which means clearer roads, crowded museums, and no sign of our daughter until she emerges groggily from her room at 10:30 a.m.  I opted to stay home with Madi for her first day of break yesterday, and we squeezed in exactly seven minutes worth of xBox time before she went off to a friend’s house for the day and night.

But that’s okay; she deserves her fun, and I’ve got some work to do, starting with straightening up my office.

Yeah, I know — I just moved into the new space at the beginning of the winter, but I’ve already cluttered it up with stacks of mail, CDs, and empty amazon.com boxes that I need to flatten and recycle.  Once that’s out of the way, I’ve got some reading to do, likely  followed by several hours of staring into space before I sit down and really try to get some work done.

Fortunately, the weather today is conducive to working inside — it’s a chilly 39 degrees outside, so my urge to mow the rapidly-greening lawn and plant cyclamen is . . . well, not gone, but low. The only real problem I’m having here at the desk is that the windy weather outside is causing the power to flicker — which means I’ve had to restart this blog entry several times.  Fortunately, WordPress saves my drafts, so no real harm done.  But I can’t say the same for the document I was poking at.

Okay, time to get cracking!
