Daddyo, interrupting his interpretative reading of The Hardy Boys’ The Mark on the Door, “Mommyo, you have to look at this. It’s the world’s longest dash.”

Mommyo, appreciatively: “It’s like an em-en-oh-pee dash.”

Posting has been light this summer, and sadly will remain so for a little while. I plan to return to a more regular blogging schedule once The Six-Year-Old returns to school in September. But for right now, helping The Six-Year-Old adjust to her new life in Chicago seems more important than writing about how The Six-Year-Old is adjusting to her new life in Chicago. Hope you are all enjoying the summer while it’s here. It’s been lovely and cool here, which is of course giving me nightmares about winter.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.

      Yeah, Boston basically got Chicago winter weather two days later. So that’s hopeful, she typed very slowly in hopes that Mother Nature wouldn’t take her comments as a personal challenge.
