So, first thing: The Kickstarter for Broad Knowledge and Sharp and Sugar Tooth funded! Thank you to everyone who backed these books; I’m super excited to be a part of this, and I honestly can’t wait to read both of these.
In other news, I have been Not Around Here because real life got hectic again–we have moved my mother-in-law and her dog in with us, and so the entire family has been engulfed in purging, cleaning, house-selling, house-preparing, moving, and now the preparations to get our current house sold and our now-bigger gang moved have begun.
There will be painting. And a new sink. There is already dog hair, but that’s made up for by the occasional dog-head leaning on my leg to ask for scritches. She’s pretty cute.
Anyway, that’s a big change, but it seems to be going well. Fortunately, the husband and I have always gotten along with our respective in-laws. Not so fortunately, my mother and mother-in-law also get along with one another, and, god help us, seem willing to team up into some sort of child-spoiling grandma fusion–I went shopping with them for clothes for us and they came home with two toys and a bunch of free Harry Potter merch from Target for the boy.
And so, that’s where I’ve been.
