Wash Out

It's been a busy, busy week for me as you could tell from my lack of postings here. I worked at the office all week and delivered my final report to my professor yesterday morning. We had free tickets to last night's Syracuse SkyChiefs game. I went with my husband. We sat with the usual suspects. It was my first game of the season; it was BP's first game since Saturday. He'd been sick. Yesterday was also BP's birthday. It seemed that it was going to be a perfect evening for the game versus Pawtucket Red Sox. Then during the third inning it started to sprinkle. The rain got heavier and kept on falling. Play was suspended in the bottom of the third inning. We hung out with our friends until around 9pm then left. Hubby had to be into work at 6am this morning, so no late night for us. Play never resumed anyway. It's going to be a nice night, although cooler tonight. Unfortunately hubby has a meeting, and I really should stay home to get some Relay for Life stuff taken care of.

Here's an update on my part-time design. I've been able to get a few of the geek-a-trons to talk to me. The younger guys, have been pretty friendly, though. G bought us all lunch from Dinosaur Barbe-que on Monday. I worked four days and accomplished, I think, some fairly impressive stuff: a new design concept for a new job portal site, some spiffy apps icons, a e-newletter layout, a new power point template for company presentations and a resign for the home page. The problem is my schedule is so spotty. I'm not scheduled to work next week at all. G's going to try to give me more hours to work from home, but I'm still afraid that we're still not going to be able to make it on this. I'll have to see what I can do about checking some old leads and drumming up more freelance business.
