Back to Work!
Well, not really. I had yesterday off for MLK Day, but I still worked from home. Makes sense right?
And the school semester has officially kicked off. What was I thinking? I am taking 2 8-eight week classes for the first half of the semester and another 2 for the last 8 weeks. It sounded like a really good idea to sign up for the Saturday morning class from 8:30-12 in Naperville. Doesn't sound so great right now. Funny, but the thing I am most worried about is that I will probably need to get on the toll road and I don't have an i-pass. For those of you not keeping up with Illinois politics and highway travel, there is a situation. Our Governor, he's a gem, has decided that the tolls need to double in Illinois. If we buy one of those handy dandy little electronic transponders that we put $$ on (i-pass), the tolls are the old price. I have yet to purchase one of those little i-passes because my mom is buying me one for my birthday--in February. Maybe we can move that gift up....
My finger is much better! So I did some knitting when I wasn't working yesterday. I made some more progress on the elusive "Here and There Cables" scarf. Don't worry, a picture will ensue when the scarf is done. The reason I am working feverishly on the scarf is that, well, it's cold out there!! I heard there is a town in MN that is -52 degrees (F)--that is without windchill. Damn cold! That and I am to the point on the "Thing" where I start color work. That's new and kinda scary. I want to be able to sit down and take my time learning how to do it. Not rush through it because Yoda has to go out right now!
