Today's been a good day. Ibis finished the bathroom vanity, there's another cruise ship out my window, and I finished my first draft! Yes, that's right. I knew it was coming but didn't expect it to happen last night. I'm not feeling the huge sigh of relief I expected because I already have a bagful of edits waiting for me.

I also don't have the conclusion written, but as we're still here and don't know our outcome, I think I'll have to let that slide for now. I have written some bits and pieces and I know the direction I'd like it to take - duh, us going back to the States - so that's the most I can do until we hear from Immigration.

But it's wrapped up. Sitting nice and pretty on my hard drive, external hard drive, email and a CD. Maybe I'll also email it to my mom, just in case. I planned to take today to relax but I've spent all day on the computer anyway. The timing was perfect because my freelance project reared its head today and I'd be mad if I'd planned to start editing.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow I'll tackle my story.

Today I'll marvel at my finished vanity, watch the ship and enjoy my day.

Congratulations Schmell! Can't wait to read it, even though I've probably have it heard once or twice before.
Talk to you soon.
