Yesterday was President's Day, and we went to Guppy's parent-student conference - she showed us the work she's been doing and we saw all the various places she goes and she led us through some of her routine and then melted down and did hysterical laps of the Kindergarten room giggling and trying to run away while I was telling her to put her socks and boots on.
Because parenting is one big bucket of non-stop awesome, you guys.
Today, we gutted her room. Or started to. I did half the closet and the game dresser thoroughly and a rough 'everything into a box, I don't even care' clean up of the rest. We generated several bags and boxes of things to donate... and you can hardly tell! We'll tackle it again after quiet time.
Client work is teeth-gnashingly frustrating, with key systems going down at the WORST possible times.
The most recently published not-a-book is noodling along nicely - ranging between the top 300 and top 500. Each book in the series has done successively better, and each time, series sales REALLY make the difference - the new book is only about a quarter of my total sales right now.
I did get my next cover mocked up today, as well.
Now, I'm going to have a cup of tea and try to be zen about all the many things I can't control.
...Like the snow storm with high winds and possibly RAIN that is galloping down on us.
