ONE CRABBY DAD'S JOURNEY THROUGH FATHERHOOD, MARRIAGE AND THE WORK WEEK.
1. Word Count: 6038. It’s from the past two days, minor gains. However, it’s been a long two days. Microgains are gains all the same. There was a bit of editing taking place, so I’m glad I’m still in the positive.
2. Mrs. Crabby was laid up with some upper GI problems. It came up abruptly yesterday, so I’ve been playing nurse. She’s been an easy patient, though, as she’s been asleep for most of it all. She needed it.
While I’m over spending time in hospitals, and have been for a while, it’s times like this that I like how we are as a team. We react well in a difficult situation, crisis or no, and we get shit done. When one of us is laid low, the other steps in
3. The Missus has started in on Game of Thrones. She just finished the first episode, in point of fact, so her gasp at the end was pretty great. I want to sing the praises of Tyiron, because Tyrion, but I’ll hold my tongue for now.

A day of slow progress, but there was a lot of cooking and company and eating. Add to the mix there was also the father-in-law and myself going to see Captain America: Winter Soldier. Most impressive is that it lived up to the hype. So much awesome.
Still, there’s time enough for some tweaking. Though that’s been the bulk of my efforts these past few days, but that’s just about done now.
I’m going to wrap up Game of Thrones and hope for sleep thereafter.
Peace out, y’all.
In a very special Easter episode of Game of Thrones, Joffrey will rise from the dead to be the true King of Kings.
"Menage a threeio?" Ugh. I think that dude needs a better French-to-English rap dictionary.

I don’t much care for math, so I’m dropping the added/total format.
The past two days were a bit of new text, and editing/reworking what was already laid out. Mrs Crabby gave it a read through, and had some most excellent advice. I trust her insight to focus on making the story stronger. With the last story, she made it stronger, time and time again.
Her ability to switch from wife to editor is damned impressive.
So I plug on, making the most of these bursts of late night energy. I’m realizing that there’s quite a bit that I need to learn. Certainly, bless Wikipedia, but there’s more to know, I know it. My in-laws are coming over tomorrow for Easter dinner, and my GIL is one of those people who seems to know a fair bit about a helluva lot. I’m trying to figure out if I should ambush him with questions before or after the pork. He’s a great sport, though.
I’m going to finish watching Dark City and call it a night.
