The pendulum swings...
...into a more intensive, more structured, more functional mode. Did well on my chem test (which is, er, surprising)(we got them back tonight - huge curve, but still). Spent a bunch of time today getting problems done, which is the only way to get comfortable with chem problems - doing lots of them.
I also did some more structured homeschooling with littlest dude, who unlike his two older sisters is NOT spending all waking hours working on a novel for NaNoWriMo. We made Irish soda bread, to tie in with learning about the potato famine. Tomorrow, we'll do a traditional lamb stew. For which I have purchased some lamb. Go, me.
I actually got to go to knitting on Sunday at Peddler's Daughter in Nashua (hi, Jen!), for the first time in goodness-only-knows-how-long. It was a nifty place, and a very nice way to spend some time. Oh, yeah! I like knitting! Even more so with other people. Mysteriously now that some progress has taken place on a project, I feel slightly more in control of other stuff, too. Go figure. Perpetually re-learning the same stuff, sometimes; I will pretend that on successive go-rounds, it's a deeper kind of learning. Yeah, right.
I'm now lead director for our production of The Tempest, in a switcheroo necessitated by circumstances. Weirdly, I feel like now that I have both filed for payment on dental insurance claims AND cleared off a section of kitchen counter, I am damn near unstoppable, so Whoo Hoo that we planned ahead sort of and can shift the team o' three to a slightly different configuration. Suck-o-rama, that we had to.
AND....It is now November Two Digits. And I think I should invite you all for a Second Cookie Swap. Especially since I never see most of you. How does early-ish December look for y'all, hm?
