A day off

With my wife out of town on business today, and my daughter having no after school care and having Tae Kwon Do tonight, I chose to take the day off of work, and stay home with the boy.  Originally I was going to send him to his day care provider, but the schedule was going to make that not really worth the drive (she lives on the other side of town).  So, I opted to keep him home with me.  We watched some TV this morning, including the animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood (which I highly recommend).  Now he's napping, and I'm getting caught up on some chores.

Been reading my copy of Barbarians of Lemuria lately.  It's a fun, simple little Sword & Sorcery RPG.  Kind of along the lines of what I am trying to do with Age of the Sword.  In fact, it made me start to second-guess doing AotS, since this does the genre so well.  But, it's nearly done anyways, and I've put a lot of effort into it.  So, what the heck, right?

Also been thinking about stories, though I haven't written anything fiction-wise in a couple of days.  Which brings up something that has been on my mind, and was punctuated by today's post over at Man Cave Authors.   I really need to come up with a schedule for writing.  Right now I do most of my writing at work, in between, well, work.  And at home, it seems we are always on the go.  After the kids get to bed, we are jumping around the living room doing P90X.  When that's done, I am so exhausted, and it's so late, that writing is the furthest thing from my mind.  So, where does that leave me?  I have no idea.  I just know that if I don't buckle down and make time to write, I won't get anything written.  So, that's something I need to start working on.

Aside from that relatively minor problem, life is pretty good.  We're getting the house a bit more organized and clean.  My daughter comes home for the Summer in just a few weeks, and my family is totally awesome.  I have good friends, good health, and I even get to game every now and again.  Could things get better?  Sure.  But it could get a whole lot worse.  In fact, it has been.  And I am thankful for all of the blessings I have.

I regret today that I could have written yesterday and didn't. Sigh.
