This morning, I took Child Three and his sleepover friend to the park for some shinny hockey. He had a good workout, with several skill-appropriate players taking shots and breakaways.
He spent the rest of the afternoon at another friend’s house while Child Two, the wife, and I attended a Geek Montreal get-together for an afternoon of gaming. I spent six hours playing Diplomacy while the wife picked up Child One, then Child Three, and played Illuminati in between.
Child Two enjoyed her time there, even though every time I saw her she was working on a school project. She wants to officially join the club.
Tomorrow is a busy day, with hockey to coach in the morning, errands to run in the afternoon, and an Oscars party in the evening. Monday, I start work in an actual TV writers’ room. I’ll be spending the next three weeks as a TV writer(‘s assistant). The odds we’ll actually make it to production are about 50%, but even if that doesn’t happen, this will be a valuable, if very moderately lucrative, experience.
