Sorry about the weeklong hiatus! The kids and I have had a tiring but fun week (who knew spending four mornings with ten preschoolers could be so exhausting?). Writing, doodling, housekeeping: all fell by the wayside. I have one week to clean my entire house and get back on track with other things before Busy Season hits us again.
However, a few items of interest:
- The baby turned one this week. *sniffle* My little Baron, all growed up! Is it selfish of me to be secretly glad that he can’t walk yet, just so that I can enjoy his cute bottom-scooting for a while longer?
- We managed to sell D’s old car (but we, I mean he–all I did was to answer the phone and take down messages). I did get nostalgic about poor Grapejuice and all the firsts associated with it. I learned to drive in that car, we bought our firstborn home from the hospital in it, D. hit his first and only deer in it… oh, wait. That was not a pleasant memory.
- Got a notice from the state department of education saying that Sir I. is officially enrolled in a home study program for kindergarten. Woohoo! Now to start teaching him to read, add and subtract, and studying coral reefs… oh. We’re already doing that. 😀
- The summer programing theme at our library is creativity. In a fit of (misguided??) enthusiasm, I volunteered to lead a short-story writing workshop for YAs. Eek! Any suggestions for good anthologies or creative writing resources for that age group? I’ve pegged the Firebirds anthologies and Damon Knight’s Creating Short Fiction as potential resources. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
See you again in a little bit.
