What's that? He says he's not dead
The last foster daughters will be leaving Saturday morning to go live with relatives, leaving us with a house that's relatively empty*. That will be the last of that for a while, maybe 6 months or a year. Then I doubt we'll ever take that many at once again.
I'm really not sure what I'll do without any crying going on in my house. Oh, wait, yes I'm sure. While it's more an explanation than an excuse, the reason it's been so slow around here is that I've managed to knock out 15-20% of my thesis in the last week and a half. Now that the research is done, the rest simply consists in writing the blasted thing**. The sad thing is how little of the research I'll actually get to use. The rest can wait for the book, I guess.
* 5 kids in a house is "relatively empty" compared to 10, 7 of whom are girls under the age of 8.Especially when 2 of them do nothing but sleep here before heading off to work and/or school. ** Plus probably as much time as that again formatting footnotes. Good grief. If Kate Tarabian was not already dead I'd probably kill her.
