As for writing? Pthbth. Reference lack of concentration above. I got a grand total of 500 words written on my original fiction and a few words of revision on the Spike one-shot I've been working on. Odds are very bad that I'll actually get back to it tonight. At least I had the strength to say no to the seasonal_spuffy thing that's in sign-ups right now. I just don't have the time to dedicate to it, and would hate to back out.
I did manage to talk Craig into going out for dinner last night for some family bonding. We took the kids to a new diner we wanted to try and had a grand time. It felt wonderful. I just wish I could have more. I got other connection today when I talked to my brother-in-law, though. He and his wife are coming for 10 days in October; it's their first trip to the US. Needless to say, everybody's excited about it. I just have to finish my list of what I need for them to bring.
Other than that, same old same old. Maybe I just need to get inspired with something new, because I sure as heck ain't feeling it anywhere else. Ah well. Off to deal with a cranky son and a bored daughter.
