Weekend Roundup...

...I spent a couple hours on Friday at B&N working on my WIP -- I scrapped what I had (about 18K) and started over, but this time, I worked on a detailed outline first. I think it will come together better now. I've mentioned before that I have to let things simmer. I knew I hadn't done that enough when I started writing before, but I didn't want to wait too long -- so now it's simmered pretty nicely, and I think I know what I want from it. We'll see ;)

...most of the weekend was taken up by working -- easy work, but time-intensive with a lot of e-mailing and trying to get the new session going on the right foot.

...we went to my FIL's for our annual St. Patty's day meal last night. It was a nice evening, though D got a little...well, not sure what to call it. He's been struggling lately with not wanting to be a kid (he wants to make his own decisions) and wishing he could be our peer instead of our son. It's been interesting ;)

...Spring Break comes next week, and I think we have a plan (for two of the days) -- should be fun if it works out.

Happy spring! :)

Oh, bummer! Of course, we have a forest fire pretty close to us (not a danger to us, however, as there are a number of highways between us and it) -- and I know moisture would be helpful. The blustery wind which kicked up a few hours ago, however, is NOT.

wow, that must have been tough to scrap 18 k. good luck! My 8 y.o. also would like to be treated as an adult. He is offended when a waiter hands him a kids menu at a restaurant!

It was and it wasn't -- I knew it wasn't going where I wanted it to, and there were a million characters (and I couldn't keep track of them all). So part of me was really relieved once I realized I had to start again.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with an 8-going-on-fifty kid!

We'll have to remind them of these times when they're adults and wishing they had the freedom of childhood ;)

Sometimes, that seems like the best way (here's hoping) :)
