Summer Approaches

I'm 85% finished with draft 2 of this novel. I'll likely finish it this weekend. Draft 3 will go even faster than draft 2. My agent should have the manuscript on her desk sometime early next month. That means that if she likes it, draft four should be ready at the end of August.

In other news, Middle Child's baseball team proves to be a wonderful experience for him and for me. The other two coaches have already asked me to coach with them next year. Saying yes was a no-brainer. We have yet to win a game this season, but nearly everyone will return next Spring. The same thing happened with last year's last place team, which is running away with the league this year.

My tenured Saint finishes school in a little over a week. Oldest Son finishes when the Saint does. Middle Child finishes at the end of that week. Daughter will stop day care for the Summer.

Somewhere along the line, the Saint called the guy who painted our house last Summer. Turns out, his brother in law does bathrooms, so we'll be leaving town for a week or so while he renovates ours. I think that's a perfect excuse to leave town for a few days.

And thinking of travel is more than enough motivation to get back to the manuscript.
