[personal] The week goes on

Not a lot of big doings to report. Plenty going on in my writing life, but it's either administrivia or stuff-not-ready-to-be-announced. Day Jobbery has been busy. This is convenient, as I am in the Omaha office this week. Been seeing a lot of old friends while I'm here. It's fun to introduce Lisa Costello to this part of my life, and the people in it.

I've been working in Omaha (in a remote sense) since 1999. Over the past fourteen years, I've made literally a hundred trips to this city. Kind of weird when I think about it. This has been my home away from home.

Working a lot on paving the way for the life changes in progress. Those are financial, medical, emotional, business and personal changes. And, of course, ultimately mortal changes. These days I'm so caught up in the details that sometime it's a surprise to remember what I'm really doing.

My actual 49th birthday is tomorrow. We're having a dinner for me here in Omaha. We fly home Friday, where I have some medical stuff in the afternoon, then my family birthday dinner Friday night. Saturday is the birthday party for [info]mlerules, for which I am planning to make my heart attack potato salad [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. That of course presumes my problems with my hands and feet will allow me to cook, which may be a major issue.

Next week I see the oncologist, the attorney, the accountant and the financial planner. Plus JayFest and JayCon XIII. And my very dear friend [info]fjm comes from England to visit me. And, and, and...

So the week goes on.
