08:44 – Barbara was gone all day and into the evening on Tuesday, on a trip to an outlet mall with her sister and parents. Yesterday, she went out to dinner with two of her friends from the library and didn’t get home until mid-evening. She then asked if it was okay if she went to the gym after work today. Yeah, right. Like I’ve ever tried to tell Barbara what to do, or like she ever asks my permission. But this was a rare opportunity that couldn’t be missed, so I shouted, “No!” Colin did his bit by agreeing with me. Of course, we were only kidding. Barbara is in fact going to the gym after work.
As of today, I now have three months left to finish the re-write on the forensics book, along with everything else I need to get done between now and then. Today I need to get purchase orders issued for the chemicals to make up more chemistry kits.
