Can you feel it in the air?
I can. Snow is melting, skies are blue, and the temperatures are finally warming up.
Of course, spring in Minnesota is a wildly variable month, and not to be trusted. We can have blizzards alternating with shorts-weather. So I won't run out and plant any seeds just yet.
But my thoughts can start turning away from winter to spring. This was a way stressful week, so it's nice to anticipate pleasantness for a change. Why oh why did we have an acquisition during a major release/deadline? Oh, wait. We wouldn't have had these deadlines if we hadn't been acquired! Oh well. I think I got most of the functionality documented, and if I didn't -- customers love to file bugs.
Yep, a new phase is starting, not just spring, but in my life. In a few months my first book will be out, followed in September by book 2, November book 3, and December, book 4. Wow. I suspect I'll have another one out this year, too. Pretty amazing.
I'd better enjoy spring while I can. I think I'm going to be busy this year...
