Life has been busy lately, but not distressingly so. Matt’s starting in on his third week of classes, and is right on schedule with moderate panic about being inept with the language he has to learn this term. I’m working consistently on the manuscript AND have managed to do the laundry on time three weeks in a row. A miracle, I know.

Shiloh just got a new bone. A big one! With knuckles! Chicken flavored! Even though it’s plastic! She makes nice sideshow entertainment as I clean the apartment, alternating between Very Serious Chewing and Tossing The Bone To See If It Flies (so far, no luck), followed by a Pounce! or two. Clearly, the height of entertainment for everyone involved.
