So naturally, the refrigerator cannot wait a few weeks and decides to die NOW. And when I try to move up delivery of our new fridge, they say sure... but due to the way delivery schedules work, it won't arrive until Monday. So nearly a week with no fridge. I'm temporarily keeping it cool with blocks of dry ice inside; dunno how long I can keep that up. *sigh*
OTOH, this weekend I look forward to having my office completed and being able to crank out LOTS of wordage on Boundary. It's been moving along, but slower than I would like; ideally I want a rough first draft finished by July, but probably won't get it done before my birthday due to other things. I rarely work in "drafts" but when you work with a co-author things are different -- and this book is very, VERY different from what I usually do anyway. Very good -- in fact, I suspect this may turn out to be one of the best things I ever write, especially after Eric Flint gets through beating on it -- but very different.
