I had an unusually pleasant afternoon once I gave up on the idea of sending out resumes (the first job I tried to apply to took over a half an hour of fighting with a balky on-line form that simply would not take my input on a couple of fields). Yesterday I got a contract for writing a corporate web site for the group that's sort of "budding off" of the thing I've been working on the past several months. It's not a huge amount of money, but given that the other one (which could still turn into a full-time gig at any point) crashed from 40-50 hours a week to zero as we wait and see what's happening there with the incoming investors, it's nice to have something coming in. Anyway, it was an agreeable change to be cranking out HTML (and more CSS than I'd done for ages) all afternoon ... I almost forgot how fun it can be to code pages (especially when everything's either working or is not too horribly difficult to figure out)!
However, I do wish I'd gotten more of that finished (I'm about 2/3rds done), as I'm probably not going to get anything at-my-desk done tomorrow, as Saturday is The Wife's birthday, and The Girls and I have to get ourselves out and do some shopping (such as we can, given our present beyond-strapped financial state). At least the Birthday Girl has given the kids some suggestions and given me a good idea of what she wants, so we're not completely having to make it up as we go along! There seems to also be some going-out-to-dinner plans in the works for both Friday and Saturday, so I'm going to probably be a bit pressed for getting a post up tomorrow (but given that I'm doing NaBloPoMo, I'm going to have to find a way!).
