mood - one of those days (merlin): batgu

Returning to the rhythm of life

So two days with the inlaws gone and we're still struggling a little bit to find our routine. It's rougher than usual because it all gets disrupted again in a little over a week when the kids go back to school. So right now, there's shopping and last minute summer break fun and trying to get off summer break bedtimes and...so much stuff. Still, we'll be all right.

I'm down almost 14 pounds in our new lifestyle, but...Collapse )

But then we went out again this afternoon to B&N. It was a fundraiser day for local music teachers, which included the kids' piano teacher. She had a half hour slot for her students to play, so each of them performed. I was pretty impressed, actually. I don't think I could've done it so publicly at their ages. But they got through it without any bobbles, and then we bought books and got Starbucks. Well, the kids got Starbucks, lol.

Tonight will be movie night with the kids. I need to get some writing done. Oh! My reincarnation A/G fic got 2nd place over at the second long challenge at ag_fics! I was very surprised. I ran out of time to do everything I wanted and had to edit myself down severely, so I didn't think the story actually made much sense when I submitted it, lol. At this point, I'm torn between rewriting it and making it as long as I originally wanted (I seriously saw it as more than twice its current length of 10k), or just write a sequel and take it from there.
