Remember the little seeds I planted, pictured in my last post? Well, they're springing up like mad:
I'm sure it's just a little bit strange that I keep wandering in there, rubbing my hands together, cackling and saying, "Hahahaha! I'm fattening you up so I can EAT YOU!"
I finished the first half of Elegant Empire:
Now all I do is make another one of these, Kitchener the two back portions together, and do a button band around the front and back neck. I hope the second half will go quicker, but I doubt it, given everything that's going on.
I've got the restaurant for Sr. Jr.'s bar mitzvah lined up, which is good, a relief, all that. Today I was going to go look at invitations. Alas, Jr. Jr. woke up with a sore throat and a fever, so I'm stuck at home. Apparently, he wasn't feeling well yesterday at school, but wouldn't tell me about it because he didn't want to miss his baseball game last night. To make it worse, he refused to wear a long sleeved shirt or sweatshirt under his jersey, even though it was cold and rainy, so he was out there shivering for two hours. While I admire his dedication to his team (they're 2-0!), I do wish common sense would pay him a visit.
I have a feeling that I'll be pulling out my hair, climbing the walls, and talking to people who aren't there by the time this bar mitzvah rolls around in August. By the time we get back from our trip afterward, I will *definitely* need a vacation.
Poor Mr. T will join me in my nervous breakdown, too, I suspect. He has been given a trial date on very short notice, so is working 16 hours a day at this point. It ruins Spring, basically, and will also keep me from going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Then he has another trial set for the Fall, smack in the middle of cyclocross season. So he's barely riding now, his Fall season is pre-screwed, and he's working like mad.
Look for some fun ranty posts from us as we get more and more stressed!
