Another slow night

We must be in a post-peak lull here at work. Hard to believe that we've been scrambling to keep up the last few weeks when there is just not much to do these last couple of nights. I'll have to start bringing a book with me if things don't pick up.

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.
