Remember last year when I wrote an entry about how I was reading the paperback of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower IV: The Wizard Glass on the train and someone sat next to me and pulled out the same book? I thought how freaky that was and said to him “what are the chances of THAT?” as I showed him the cover of my book. An older book, being read in paperback format, and we had about 2 pages difference in where we were.
Today, I’m on the train reading Dark Tower V: The Wolves of the Calla in hardcover, and a guy sits next to me and says “what are the chances of THAT?” as he pulls out the same book but in trade format! What a bizarre little world… 🙂
Weekend’s over. I must admit it was really great to be able to spend all of Saturday working on finishing up my Comicopia section. Chantale worked on her system, I worked on mine, and Kyle slept (mostly). A relaxing and enjoyable day. Sunday, we took Kyle to church for the first time and he slept through it like a little trooper 🙂 The rest of the day went through in a groggy blur as friends came over to visit, I picked up the kids earlier, and family came over to visit. Supper was really good and really tasty. Afterwards, Chantale worked on her site while I scanned in Melyssa’s contribution to Comicopia’s 15th Anniversary issue 🙂
Kyle, who’d been sleeping so much this weekend, woke up at 3am and was wide awake for too long. I finally managed to drowse him back to sleep by 4:30am. Of course, there was no way I was able to wake up at 5:30am and ended up staying in bed for another hour, only catching the train at 7:40.
The workday, not totally overwhelming, is showing too much signs of workload increase. Basically, any time that may have been recovered after this major project goes live, is now going to be taken up with a load more of work… oh boy…
I don’t think it’s too early to state that I’m looking forward to Christmas. I am. Especially as this will be the first year in I don’t know HOW many that I will be on vacation between Xmas and NY’s. In fact, for 5 days of vacation, I will actually end up being away from work for 12 days! HOLIDAYS! Days in which the whole family will be together! Kyle’s 1st Xmas will be spent with the kids AND Chantale at the house as well, AND a real tree 🙂 And with me there, too, you can be sure there will be plenty of Xmas baking! 🙂 *happy sigh* Yes, I’m indulging. It gives me something to look forward to… 🙂
