Soccer Update

My five-year-old has been playing AYSO soccer this season, as I believe I've mentioned before. It's been something of a trial for me, as the games are scheduled on Saturday, and usually Saturday morning.

Now, Saturday morning is my chief project time. I can get a lot done on personal projects in the evenings, but Saturday is the only time when I can tackle larger things--when I have several hours together and have the gumption to focus on something difficult for that length of time. Having a soccer game take (effectively) a two-hour bite out of that time has brought my productivity to a screeching halt.

Today, however, the soccer game isn't scheduled until 1:30 this afternoon, so I have the morning to myself. Well, mostly to myself; Dave is sitting on the other side of my desk playing with Legos and occasionally making staccato "Twang, Twang" noises (I think he's shooting something--best not to ask). It's looking like a good morning.
