Today turned out to be one of those days where I did extraordinarily little but hang out with the kids. I did make them clean their rooms and scoop dog poop. And I read. I finally had a creativity/writing push and wrote a fair bunch of words, but the problem was that soon the children followed me up the stairs to hang out. Girlie drew on the whiteboard and boy sat and talked to me for awhile and then laid down because he was morphing into barfboy. He threw up twice today. I’m really hoping he gets over this. Whatever it is. He did manage some dinner and is now asleep. I hope.


I was really happy with what I wrote today. It’s a lot of worldbuilding stuff, and in the end I don’t know how much will be needed, but I love the way the world is fleshing out and how the characters are fitting into it. Very happy about that. I just wish I’d had more uninterrupted time to take advantage of the energy and the creativity. At least the ear infection is clearing up. And the kids are happy. And it’s not snowing, though the horrible smoke rolled in yesterday again.

Kanani I'm writing this 10 days after your blog was posted, but it reminded me that we just picked up Just Dance 4 for the Wii yesterday and we've been playing it almost non-stop since. My daughter even skipped ballet lessons for the game (such a rare treat, really). What hilarity, that game

Diana Francis My daughter loves dance. I wonder if she'd like Just Dance. Is it hard (that question is for me becuase I"m a klutz).

Kanani its AWESOMENESS! my 13 year-old son resisted at first (too cool or something), but then he started playing it even when we werent forcing him. and being a klutz only adds fun! its like being a bad bowler-- hitting ANYTHING is cause for celebration and much bragging. we have a tiny living room with 2 adults, a teenager, and a 9 year-old playing at once. lots of elbowed eyes, stepped-on feet, and banged up Wiimotes. its excellent (albeit incidental) exercise, too, btw.

Diana Francis Sounds awesomely cool. I think I might have to get it for her for Xmas. I could use getting up off the couch too. Exercise is always good.
