[writing|child] New adventures in parenting, getting stuff done

So I got a bunch of the way through the change notes on “In the Forests of the Night.” I plan to put that to bed tomorrow, and have Green in Wednesday. Thursday at the latest. Then I’m just going to ripsnort through LaunchPad and Denvention, with strategic nap breaks. That is good.

Meanwhile, had to arm wrestle the_child today. Some version of test anxiety gave her stage fright (literally), and she needed a bunch of gentle Dad-like intervention. It was a very Brady moment, but I think I succeeded.

Another day of Day Jobbe work tomorrow, plus finish packing, Fireside time, then Wednesday I’m off into the wild blue yonder.
