So today, instead of re-reading a good portion of my novel I took two online seminars that both turned out to be useless. I ferried my oldest daughter to play practice and then back again. Picked up a good friend and took her to get her car - this is not wasted time, good deeds are exempt from the time waster rule. I spent an hour at the playground with my youngest and her friend. I placed an order for stuff I don't really need.
My book sits open to chapter 5. Issues of continuity, disappearing characters and mysterious name changes unaddressed.
The teachers are doing professional development. Really I wish they wouldn't. I'm already creative enough with my time. I don't need my kids helping me.
