Sketching

I’ve taken advantage of my son’s burgeoning interest in drawing to buy a book on cartooning, and surprised myself this weekend by drawing a horse with a disneyesque smile. I also draw a little cartoon moppet. I’ll dust off the scanner and show them to you later, but I was quite pleased with myself.

I have to cut it short today. My wife called me home Friday afternoon because she was sick, and stayed in bed almost for the entire weekend. Work is going well but I feel a psychological deadline coming soon. The boss here wants me to go full time, and as soon as it comes out that I wish to remain a contractor, I fear some of my responsibility will be taken from me. I want to be farther along when that happens.

I hope she's feeling better. And yikes on the job.

I hope she's better soon. My husband wasn't well over the weekend either--told me he had MAN-FLU (our code for a cold). His words not mine :)

Yikes on professional pressures! Good luck with that.

I hope the wife is feeling better!!

Don't make yourself crazy about the job. You're doing a good job, and that is what employers want, they want someone who is loyal, works hard etc. Usually, if they are assured of those things they will keep you however you want to be there..
