In other news, the Battle of the Elbow River has obviously taken a brief hiatus. The Grand Duchess and Young Master returned last week, which has eaten into my available freetime considerably, much as I love and missed them. And then, in a double whammy worthy of a WWF tag-team move, I looked at the calendar and noticed, almost as an afterthought, that it was the final week of summer vacation. Which meant that it was time for. . . the dreaded annual revision of course syllabi. And it's gets better, since I have also had to plan and write a new course syllabus, in addition, from the ground up! A tedious temporal sinkhole at best, let me assure you. Classes for Fall 2013 start tomorrow, Wednesday, August 21st. Need I say more?
Hopefully, life permitting, I can wrap up the game during the approaching weekend and see how things pan out between generals de Latte and von Tschtschke before launching headlong into another three-month painting challenge on August 30th. Or was it September 1st? No matter. Time to get moving on all fronts. Time and unpainted miniatures wait for no man.
