Tribulations and Trials

Yesterday was another incredible day from both work and personal perspectives. I didn't get as much writing done as I would have liked even though I worked on the book pretty much all day. But what I did accomplish--finally working out the logistics for one of the techniques I want to include but hadn't been able to work out exactly how to do it--was great. Then in the evening I had a couple of perfect parenting moments with Jessie and wife/partnering moments with Dave. I went to bed with a smile on my face and celebrated by getting up a little late this morning... whereupon everything went to shinola.

Understanding what's going with Jessie at mealtimes and helping her to communicate more effectively and less offensively about eating is child's play compared to trying to help her with her summer school work. I not not planned to spend time on it with her this morning, but it needed to be done. I had planned to write, but now I'm so frazzled from trying to explain counting in fractions that I can't even remember what color theory is and I could care less what tools I have added to my inventory since the last book.

Time for a couple of deep breaths and maybe a little medication, I mean meditation. On the plus side, I can make glass that floats!

Glass that floats is simply missing an "l" and an "s". "Gas".

1/2 orange plus 1/3 pink plus 1/6 crimson plus 1/6 black equals a tequila sunrise.

How's that for combining color theory and fractions in a most delightful way. A few of those and it won't only be the glass that floats...
