The day began very well. It continued with Young Man feeling much better so that he could go off to school. Not everyone would think that was a good thing, but Young Man enjoys school. He had a very nice day and finished all his homework within 20 minutes of arriving home. He had a very, very big incentive.
Yes, all 1366 pieces of his new Imperial Star Destroyer arrived today! He had pulled together all his holiday gift money and several allowances and then waited (almost) patiently while it was on backorder for two months. It's here, it is covering the coffee table, we are very happy. For the record, I am only allowed to sort the pieces. He no longer wants (or tolerates) my help with the building.
