The 'reprieve' at work is definitely over, with a coworker promoting out next week and a scramble to fill job positions, as well as monthly and quarterly reports to plug away at. But it was a huge blessing to have some quiet days last week and feel more rejuvenated.
The weather reprieve is over too; had to switch back to sleeping on my air mattress last night, but it was sure nice to get that cooler week of sleeping on my futon!
The 'Delarun' writing will probably have to stop now, yet I'm delighted I was able to get through chapter 7 on the weekend and make a good start on chapter 8. For the curious, I'm guessing it will be 11 chapters total for section 2, if I don't get anymore surprises, that is. Frustrating to have to stop so close to the finish line, but I'm very grateful with all the 'extra' progress I made, thanks to the good weather. =)
