spaß

Lunacy is in the air, or maybe it's just me feeling the crunch of having an actual, instead of self-enforced, schedule. The previously separate sects of my life are about to converge, and I'd prefer if they all came out running parallel instead of becoming a maelstrom. Will my new day job play nice with the rest of my life?

. . . stay tuned.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch. We're six weeks into the waiting game for the results of Alex's exam with possibly another 4-6 weeks to go. No real change there, but his part-time job is certainly keeping his mind occupied. He doesn't mention the exam every half hour like he used to, "Only 7 weeks 3 days and 16.5 hours left". It's the small things that preserve my sanity. I guess, I'm trying to thank Starbucks here. Weird.

To completely crunch my time into small pieces, I've been teaching myself to knit and have joined an online design challenge. It's all in good fun, and who doesn't love a challenge. Grandma Rosie would appreciate the fashion challenge. I abused her sewing machine many moons ago, ripping clothing apart to make new items. She still loves the "1 dress becomes 3 shirts" night, and I love amusing her. I'll have to send her some pics of this one.

And speaking of good fun, Alex is taking me to see the 3-D "Nightmare Before Christmas" at noon. Nothing like Tim Burton in 3-D to jumpstart a weekend!

I have more to say, but it's better said HERE.
