Well, it’s 8:23 and one kid is down for the night. Asher is resisting sleep, but then he usually doesn’t conk out until 9 or 10 pm. Ian and I are exhausted by them, even though today was actually pretty easy because Ian had the day off work. Lucas simply never shuts up, and he’s developed this habit of shouting everything he has to say. It’s very wearing. And very hard to stay engaged with him because he’ll just suck up all your attention and energy. It feels vampiric, even.


We’re still moving the office, although today we got all the major stuff moved (took apart the desk, moved it, put it back together again—same with my computer, printer, modem, router, external hard drive, etc.). I still have to consolidate two file cabinets down to one in the coming week. Ian installed more RAM on my computer, so it’s running faster and that’s really nice. We bought two new RAM cards, but through much trial and error, discovered only one of them works properly. Back to Best Buy we must go.
I’m in the middle of the final edit for our medical terminology textbook—the one I’ve been writing with three co-authors for two years now. I have three more chapters to edit and then the book goes off to production, where it will be copyedited and laid out. I’ll be so glad to get this thing off my plate so I can move on to new challenges.
Anyway, chapter 9 is what I’m supposed to be doing right now. Ian’s got Asher in the Ergo carrier and he’s rocking back and forth, hoping Asher will go to sleep.
Basically, it’s been a typical day.
