The good stuff:

     Lunch with Christi Monday, to be cherished even more as we might not be seeing much of each other until the autumn.

     Finished writing the addendum section for 'The Great Wave' on Monday, but when I went to look over/edit the file at home that evening, I couldn't get it to open! So grateful that I'd already gotten most of it up on LJ, and that the portion I hadn't I was able to get to at work this morning. =) Yay for not having to rewrite anything!

     It feels downright strange to not have to cover Corey's job from 7:30 am - 1 pm for the first time in a long time (or so it feels). Nice to not be jumping up all the time to go do stuff at his desk!

     I keep fiddling, but I think the 'Great Wave' illustrations are finally done! Did three different views for the part 4 illustration, so I guess it could as easily count as 7 'Great Wave' illustrations as it could 5. Hard to believe I'm actually really truly done with those...

Eep! That must've been quite a scare with the file! (I've had two people tell me my files were corrupt and I think it may have been the Office 2007 compatibility pack, so if you're using doc files and have that installed you might want to try and see if you have the problem with more files. Trouble is you've got to check them on other computers as both files opened fine on my computer.)

And congratulations on the progress you've made!

I'd have been really worked up if it had been narrative rather than just 300 words or so of addendum writing. My guess is it was either a compatibility thing (though it wasn't saved as .docx and I've never had the problem before) or something weird happened with the pictures I had in it (though I e-mailed it home Thursday with pictures without any trouble).

Thanks! =)

It's still scary...

Mine aren't/weren't saved as docx files either. Just regular doc files that shouldn't have been giving anyone problems. *tilts head* I still need to try sending a new doc file now that I've uninstallinged the patch. Computers are odd things. ^-^

Yes, it is. Don't think I'll be doing any writing on lunches this week, but if I do, I'll probably also send home a .txt file so if the .doc does screw up again, all I'll have to redo is the formatting. *slightly paranoid*

(at least today's edits opened just fine...)

So good you did not lose any of your writing. You are making such
good progress. I hope it continues for you.
Would you miss all the exercise you get from covering for Corey.

I know you will miss not seeing Christi.

Thanks! Been too busy and stuck this week, but hopefully that will turn around soon.

No, I won't miss the excersize, I still have to jump up and open the door every time the doorbell rings.

I sent her an e-mail about Samuel being born and us 'inviting ourselves over.' I'll let you know what she says.
