i cashed my "get out of jail for free" card yesterday so today i got back to business. i called back all the clients who were trying to get ahold of me, assuaged them that my AWOL was only temporary, securing some code work for next week. i had some re-indexing to do for a search functionality, pretty much a lot of cutting and pasting. i had my music playing and a room full of sunshine as i pulled up the blinds. renata was supposed to come over, to do work as a matter of fact, but i had a feeling it wasn't going to happen. to her credit she called back repeatedly, first to tell me she'd be late, then to "think about it" when i told her i didn't want her to come if it was going to be out of the way, then one last call in the late afternoon telling me what i already knew, that she'd be cancelling, hanging out with some other friend for the evening. by then my brain had already turned to mush after 5 hours of computer work so i was numb to the news. i ended up going with my father to costco to pick up some cafe supplies then went back to belmont to have dinner with my parents.
once i was back at home, i decided to take a bath to finish out the night.
