Wake up, sleepy demons!

Erica saved the day again this morning. Mom and I had arranged to do a presentation on our company to a local group of people who like to get together to talk about business plans (I’d mock them except for the glass house rule). It started at 7:30 AM, so we had to leave the house by 7:15 or so and someone to watch the kids for us. Erica, presumably doing penance for some awful deed, agreed to show up at 7 in the morning to hold the fort. Really. Without any threats at all. Honest.

Luckily, Charles and Alice didn’t wake up until 8 or so, and then Erica somehow (through her child handling magic) managed to convince Charles and Corwin to play on the computer instead of turning the house in to a smoking ruin. She had to pay the price of having Charles explain Rise of Nations to her in great detail, but Erica is strongly made and was therefore sufficiently undamaged to have no basis for legal action against us. That counts as a good morning around here.
