Dang, January is going by quickly. I have a ton of things to have done absolutely-no-excuses by the end of the month.
Work stuff, that is. I’ve no doubts that our office can handle it. I’m just prepping myself for the midnight oil that will have to be burned in order to get things wrapped up to our satisfaction.
Doesn’t help that I am taking a long weekend off in Phoenix in a few days, but it’ll be good for me. I’ll get to get back in touch with an old friend/compadre and see his family. It’s been years and I’m sure we’ll have a shortage of time to share ideas and experiences.
So this is something to look forward to, and I can finally get a new picture for the front of my site. I feel the the Christmas tree has been up too long, so to speak.
Back to the work thing… Today we let our first client “go.” It was an easy decision. They just weren’t happy with the designs we worked up, and frankly, communication became frustrating. We decided to refund their money and let them take the budget to someone else. It was a good sized budget, but honestly – when the day is done, if the client isn’t happy, and we’re not happy, then it’s all for naught.
Dinner was an unusually rare and simple favorite this evening – Grilled cheese and cream of tomato soup. I need to make that more. I think when I was a kid, I mispronounced it “gurled cheese.” I still have issues with certain words.
