I have a lot of work to do in the coming week — and I mean a lot. I didn't get as much done as I should have last week, and with my fourth estimated tax payment and Panama's board coming up (the 15th and the 20th, respectively), I can't afford to slack off at all right now.
This essentially means that I'm working today. Although it's not unusual for me to work a couple of hours each day on the weekend, I've already surpassed that — and still have more to do.
With four or so hours' worth of work for this evening, there's no way I'll be able to enjoy my evening in the normal way: by watching a movie with Michael. My consolation prize is a fruit tart from Devil's Food, our favorite brunch restaurant in Denver.
I'm saving the fruit tart for later this evening, when I'm an hour or two into my workload (and after we've had dinner). While it's small consolation for having to begin and end my Sunday with work, it'll definitely help make the burden easier to bear!

Aw, I hope you enjoy your consolation prize! You deserve it. :-)
And... a meme comes bouncing back your way.

By the way, I finished the meme you tagged me for. I let you know in a previous post, but you may not have seen my comment.
You can read it here:
I Am Writer, Hear Me Roar!
Thanks for the tag, and the award!
I'm part of the crying game. Between my taxes and the credit card bill for my new computer, I wrote out close to $3,500 in checks this weekend. Talk about a serious dent in the bank balance!
I did indeed see your link to your "roaring writers" meme post. In fact, I commented beneath it, but forgot to comment on your blog too. Oops!
I'll check out the new meme now.
As for my consolation prize... I cheated and ate it while I watched TV. The trade-off was that I was up working until 3am, but in the end I didn't mind. Michael and I watched a short documentary, which helped me relax more than the fruit tart alone could have. :o)
Ouch -- that's quite a dent! Glad I'm not the only freelancer who feels the pain when taxes and other expenses all hit at the same time. ;o)
