So, I have this quilt. Actually, I kind of stole the quilt from my mom, who won it as a bingo prize as a teenager. I took it with me to college and since A and I moved in together it has topped our bed. Here's a picture (from when I was 7 months pregnant… Continue reading RIP, old quilt.
This is a time for new beginnings, at least if you're a person of the academic persuasion. In two days, I'll start teaching the writing class I've been preparing for over the summer. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous as all get-out...I still wonder why on earth they trust me to teach… Continue reading new beginnings
Oh my goodness, y'all, when they told me I'd be drowsy and out of it on these meds, they so weren't lying. I got my presentation rescheduled for Tuesday, thank goodness, because all I could manage yesterday was looking at pictures on Flickr in a nearly catatonic state.

I'm so busy with classes and research that I barely have time for anything else, and I'm being told that the pain that's gotten a lot worse since I started getting really sick this past spring is probably a… Continue reading I wish I had 8 arms…
Yesterday, I had some friends from my department over for a little crafting party (we generally call it "knitting", but since only half the group or so knits, that's sort of an inaccurate name!). We usually meet in a coffee shop, but I've not been feeling up to getting out there very often since getting… Continue reading I sewed!
I had hoped to write this post yesterday, but WordPress seemed to be down every time I tried. Bad WordPress! In any case, I just wanted to note futher progress on the sock, which now has a heel and completed gusset (and is actually a bit further along that it is even in that picture,… Continue reading the sock has a heel!
