I got the QC job. The boss was surprised that I was on pins an needles. “We knew for a couple of weeks,” he said. “We’re just waiting for HR to catch up.”

And the apartment is a go.

And the procedures are done. The chica in charge of them called me to thank me for having them done on time, ready to go, and well done. They still need to be reviewed by the work directors, but my first 350-page opus is going to be used, picked apart, and read. And you know what? I’m proud of the length, because it wasn’t 150 pages longer. I’ve learned a lot from her so far, very cool stuff. None of the sadness of finishing a work of fiction, that’s for sure.

I don’t plan to coast though my last few weeks in my department — too much to do. But I do plan to relax about it. Ahhhhhhh…..

P.S. Plus, my horoscope said tonight would be a good night for a romantic interlude.
