Good morning, friends.
This week, I have my brother and sister-in-law's children, my nephew and two nieces, while they're taking a vacation in Jamaica. sis-in-law is suppose to drink a couple of tropical foo-foo drinks for me! Our first night went very well. The youngest, 3, fell asleep on the couch last night. The two older kids 9ages 6 and 9), plus my daughter (12), stayed up until 10pm, then I sent them all to their beds. They were up at 6am! LOL.
It's a lazy day today, for them. I told them they didn't have to change out of their PJs. They're running around like little heathens and laughing.
Friday, Mom and Dad came over for dinner and I had a little chat with Mom about the story I'm planning/researching. She gave me some great input on the Chinese myths and beliefs, so I'll be incorporating those into the story. Basically, I'm starting this story from the very beginning (again), and writing it fresh. It's going to be (loosely) based on an old Chinese faerie tale, but with a more modern twist, as well as a bit more westernized.
