It’s been a bit longer than usual since I posted. If you keep up with me on Twitter, you know I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth. It’s been busy, to say the least.
My son’s robotics team advanced to the state competition, which was the second weekend of the month, and I went with them. (It’s really a regional competition because teams from other states were also there, but since it’s mostly Texas teams, we just referred to it as state.) They came in 34th out of 59, which is approximately 20 spots higher than they’ve ranked in the past. That’s a lot better than it sounds because my son’s team was four middle school kids working after school and competing against mostly high school teams, many of whom met as a class. (My son’s robotics class is working on other projects.) We’re all extremely proud of them.
Because of some weird thing with the university calendar, we only have three days left before classes are completely over and finals start. So many of the time consuming things I normally deal with after Thanksgiving, such as wrapping up labs, have already been done.
Between travel for the robotics meet, ending the semester things, and really nasty allergies, I’ve not had time or mental ability to post or work on fiction. I’m hoping to post quite a few things over the Thanksgiving weekend, so keep an eye on this space.
