thursdays start my week

I have, for years and years now, kind of considered Thursday to be the start of my week. This is because Shaun and Ted so frequently worked weekend hours, so they often had Tues/Weds off, and I would just work to that schedule, pretty much. Shaun, though, moved away two years ago (wow, snif!), and Ted is now looking at Monday-Friday day jobs. My schedule may finally return to what the usual working world’s is. *boggle*

Stupid hand is improving. My *temper* is fragmenting as the days go by and my typing continues to be inept and I get further and further behind, but my hand is getting better. Kate came by last night and was gratifyingly horrified at its color, which is yellow with dramatic purple highlights where the deeper bruising is still coming up, but it’s much better. I think, though, that I won’t be able to participate in kendo this weekend either, which is annoying. But I’m trying VERY VERY hard not to overdo it and let the fricking thing heal so that maybe by Monday I’ll be able to really go back to work. *radiates frustration*

The wonderful bright red has washed out of my hair and now I hate it. I am trying to keep myself in mind of the fact that what I am frustrated with is my hand and the inability to work, not my hair, and that going and cutting it all off will not actually make me any happier with my hair, my hand, or my work.

People are getting notifications that HOUSE OF CARDS is shipping! That’s good. And I have finally packaged up all the books I was supposed to send people three weeks ago and will put them in the mail as soon as I’m done writing this blog.

  1. Hope your hand heals up totally very soon. Sorry about the hair. I’m waiting on a dicey perm to grow out so I can lop it off. :D

    AND I wanted to say I got notification that I can *pick up* House of Cards today at BN. I’m unsure if that’s true but I intend to find out.

  2. B&N often has books out a little early, so maybe you can! Cool! Yay!

  3. I’m probably not the first to do it, but I just bought House of Cards! Oh, yay! I think I shall pre-order books more often.

    I actually could’ve gotten it yesterday. I’d gone to pick up a different book I’d ordered, and ten minutes after I left, the girl who sold it to me happened upon HoC. But I only got the email this morning for it. D’oh. :)

  4. Interesting tidbit: the inside of HoC advertises HoF as coming in September 2008. Has that been officially changed, or was August only tentative or… I mean, one month doesn’t make a huge difference for readers, but I wonder at it as a writer (recalls reading something by Tess Gerritsen about Sept releases and the NY Times list). I remember you having to rewrite HoF … did that contribute to a pushback?

    Inquiring minds want to know. (more like, I find industry stuff fascinating and you’re here to ask, so… that’s what you get for having a blog, I guess. *g*)

  5. No, I just couldn’t remember if it was August or September. :)
