It's been a while since I wrote about family or personal stuff. I've been very busy (who isn't?) keeping up on all my work. And that's the thing I need to be most worried about now.
Friday night Tamie was out of town with her two sisters leaving me at home with the kids. I took them to the store for suckers and ice cream and also to buy comfort food (notably pizza). Then we just hung out and watched TV. It was a dream of sorts. I love being with my kids. To me they are so beautiful and good. I can't get enough of them. My eldest, a girl of eleven, is growing into such an upright and responsible individual. Then my two boys who are so much like me-- dreamers and adventurers. And then of course Willow who is coming up on two years old. She's a delight to everyone that sees her-- so easy to get along with. She doesn't fuss hardly at all at bedtime. I sometimes joke that she's the reasonable one in the family. I'm so glad we had her.
I have been taking a rest for politics. I don't view it as politics per se, but rather as Life. It's human society that interests me. Anyway, I haven't done a very good job of it. I still consume 1-3 hours a week. But that's down from 10-20 hours a week. But I'm ready to get back in the saddle. Has it been three months?
I had a dream last night that I was at a wargaming convention looking at armies. The last one I looked at for a while and the person who created it was explaining it to me. When I awoke I had a clear idea of how it might all come together. It would be a complete scratch-sculpt. Possibly more on that later.
I will probably write more later.
