The kids are in finally in school!  I had the first two days off and I so wanted to celebrate by writing pages and pages, and mostly I just took naps and more naps.

Oh, well.

I did manage to work a bit on my new projects and managed to choose the next eight from FML.  I’m skipping ahead a bit from last week, because spoilers spoil stuff, but it’s actually not a bad transition:
