Monday Mumblings Has The Concrud

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

I'm not taking care of myself as well as I should. But hey, between Chicon, a deadline, busted A/C, and other fires, that's no surprise.

I'd planned to get rest this weekend. Honestly, I did. Then the FenCon web site went down. Not just us, but the entire shared hosting server. The hosting company fixed it as soon as they could, but that was a wakeup call to put the things we use at-con on a backup server. So I did that.

Watched the full Hugo Awards stream last night. Spent part of the day designing stuff and writing a radio play. Work, work, work.

Cunning plan today is to get some sewing done. If I'm going to have some new Steam Cat items at FenCon, I must get busy.

But no walkies this morning. My stomach is doing cartwheels.
