Contrary to popular belief I am not dead yet. I'm simply overbooked. Very, ridiculously, almost painfully overbooked. Somehow I decided that blank days on the calendar would be a bad thing because the kids would be bored and bored children tend to do dangerous things like color on walls, cut my computer cords into different lengths, and summon demons from the ninth hell*. The obvious solution to this was to keep the schedule as packed as humanely possible so that the kids couldn't cause any trouble.
Go ahead. Laugh. I deserve it.
If I'd thought about this logically I would have realized that Summer = Chaos and nothing can change that equation. Not play dates. Not picnics at the park. Not even a full morning of gymnastics can keep the chaos from happening. You'd have better luck stopping time or speeding up the harvest.
And then there's my book pile. Currently in the To Be Read pile are:
STEADFAST: The Lost Fleet Beyond The Frontier by Jack Campbell
SKIN GAME by Jim Butcher
THE GRIM COMPANY by Luke Scull
GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers
FORTUNE'S PAWN by Rachel Bach
and all the Hugo original fiction nominees from Tor because they were free to download last week
And then there's the writing to do. So. You know. BUSY!
What are you up to?
