not as bad as previously billed
yesterday went better than expected. other than rory not falling asleep until 11 (or 10 if you adjust for standard time), it was a nice day: i don't have pinkeye, brian felt better than expected and the play was very good.
today-the girls and i went for a hike with some friends, had lunch with said friends and are now working our way through halloween candy. in a technique new to us this year, i gave them permission to eat whatever they want when they want for the rest of the day. whatever is left when the go to bed either gets tossed or donated. i think it's going well.
