Evening habit forming?

Oh, here I am again, back after one week. Bet you never thought you'd see me again for another year. Mmm hmm. Back, baby.

I'm back to report that we lived. The week-long record-scratch, summer hangover recovery, fall time-zone adjustment that was this week...is done. And I didn't kill anyone (but Sunday was rough).

And this evening was actually...good. Jason made hamburgers. Milo did piano practice and didn't want to stop. Lu did homework, then interrupted herself to work out the chords to the Beatles' "I Will" — inspired by her generously singing Milo's bedtime music (with ukelele). The night's not done, but some evening harmony and peace was welcome after a hard re-entry. Here's hoping it continues.
