Go me

A whole month without using a sick day. I have 10 sick/personal days for the year, so not using one for the first month of the year is pretty good. There were a few mornings I almost decided to call in. This morning was one of those mornings. It was especially tempting because I don't have much to do right now.

Still, I made it in. I think I'll let myself take a day some time later this month.

I shot two rolls yesterday. The assignment was stopping motion. I got a roll of cars going by and a roll of magid jumping and swinging. On a few of the shots, I experimented with panning (moving the camera with the subject so that the subject is sharp but the background is blurred), and I'm pretty excited to see how thos eturn out. I'll pick them up today after work.

Also after work today, I need to get a package ready to mail out tomorrow, and I need to send out a rebate form. And make dinner. And I think that's all I need to do. Oh, probably do some dishes. I did some of them yesterday, and finishing them up won't take long.

For some reason, I had it in my head that I had a dentist appointment in February, but I couldn't find the appointment card. So I called them this morning, and I don't have an appointment until April. Whew.

So far, only two things on the schedule for this month. I'm sure other things will come up, but it's nice to imagine that I have lots of time to take pictures and plan the magazine.
