I have a vague memory of a mention of a training class that would be happening during this time. I'll have to check into that as well. Gotta look like I want to learn more about the grunt work I'm doing while trying to squeeze into a management role. I can do the grunt work and I'm pretty good at it; I just don't like it and would be much happier doing things like developing plans and managing resources. I'd lend a hand when needed but there are people that do actually like the heads-down coding that is typesetting these days. (Apart, of course, from shops that do wysiwyg typesetting, which is becoming more the norm. Here, however, our main-stay is setting financial tables and coding in a text editor is still the best way to go. I'd like to investigate other options for what we're doing but don't know enough about the business to begin yet.)
Had a weird home-day today as well. Got up about noon, which is early given that I get to bed at about 7:30 a.m. normally. Puttered about the house a bit while waking up, ate some PB&J and watched bits of TV. (Tivo is even more cool when you work an odd shift.) Then I started feeling sleepy and headed back to bed for a nap about 3:00. Woke up again when I heard the phone ring at about 8:30 or so. Got in the new Gilmore Girls, got Ericka settled and then it was off to work. Was hoping to be a bit more productive today; get back to editing the ms. I've had on my shelf since January (and before). Guess I needed the sleep.
