Ah Thursday! Both kids are off to school all day, and it's the day after the housecleaner has come and repaired the worst of the mess. A great chance to make progress, either on a story or on other chores. I might ought to do a little of both. With Thanksgiving approaching, I need to chip away at the thousand things that need to be done before the family descends on this house.
Yesterday, I slept in for most of the morning and then most of the afternoon was taken up by taking Rowan to her therapists. She did very well yesterday, and earned much praise. We discovered that she has taught herself to sight read several words, mainly numbers and colors. Not bad for a four year old. Her speech therapist says she is an extremely visual processor.
Meanwhile poor Sheridan was up Weds night with muscle cramps. I used to have those as a kid at night and they really sucked.
Needless to say, with all the kids interactions going on, I didn't get much writing done. At least I'm getting a better idea where the story is going. That in itself is important, as it allows me to write faster when I do sit down to write. Headwork can save you a lot of time in front of the computer screen.
