I met some clients for the first time, and they mentioned that they read my blog. One client told the other that it’s a wonder I got any sleep. Thanks to my time-tracking, I could tell her that I actually do manage to get eight-and-a-half to nine hours of sleep everyday, but that I don’t watch television. =)

Back to regular programming. Last week’s average of about 4 hours of discretionary time per workday held steady. I had about 9 hours of discretionary time each weekend day, which was up from last week. We spent more time cleaning last week, because we were reorganizing. This week felt like more of a typical week.

Life is great.
