Today...

I went trail running this morning, even though it was really warm already (um, hot). Then I spent some time sorting out bus issues (again -- there must be something about our bus route).

Now I'm at B&N, getting some stuff done (yay). I jotted down some notes for the volunteer training I'm giving at school next week; I started a story I need to write for something else. And I wrote a first draft of my query for my WIP (which isn't finished yet, but I want to get some feedback on the query, and I already have tons of feedback for the manuscript, itself). Eventually, maybe by mid-September, I'll be looking for betas...my writing has really slowed down, btw. I think it was this time last year that I asked for insight into my last book. I used to write a book every couple of months, but now I'm down to one a year. I guess that's what happens as we age, no? :)

I cleaned D's room for him on Sunday, and I found about fifty books -- I think he's only read about a dozen of them, so he has quite the TBR pile ;) He's been buying books for his birthday and Christmas for the past few years, but I hadn't realized how many of them piled up (plus, I get him books, of course, and we've gotten a few ARCs too). There are so many more books for kids these days than there were when I was a kid -- which is a good thing, of course. I'd read every kids' book in the library by the time I was 11. I don't think I'd be able to do that today. I certainly can't keep up with the YA market!

What I'd love to do is take a nap...this getting up early is for the birds ;) What about you -- how is your Tuesday shaping up?

Lol, I always find stacks of books to be put away whenever I go through the kids' rooms. First place I look for lost library books...

Today's our last day of freedom, so the kids are playing with friends and I am cleaning and shopping and trying to get ready for tomorrow. My in-laws are stopping overnight on their way back to California (they were up for my grandfather-in-law's 95th birthday), so I'm hoping things don't get TOO trashed down there in the meantime...

Sunday was our last day, and although they had to help me (and DH) with the cleaning, we spent our day similarly ;)

I do like the freedom of hitting the trail, though it's hard when it's so hot like this. Still, it's nice to be outdoors :)

Stacks of books beat stacks of most anything! Even pancakes. :)

The boys start their normal schedule today, as the freshmen had orientation on Mon and Tues. Today is the first day of reality. Wildebeest had to get up at 6:30 and he's moving a bit slowly. We shall see.

Wishing you all a good Wednesday!

I figure D will continue to get up @ 6-ish until he has to, which is when he'll start sleeping in...I hope your boys enjoy being in the same school again!
