I Should be Studying Right Now...

I have an audiology midterm in two days, and it's 10 pm on a Sunday night, and I'm on the computer updating my stash on Rav and writing in my blog. What's wrong with me? Oh, well, I'm doing well in audiology anyway.

Last week didn't feel very productive at all, and I'm hoping that I can get back on track this week, before I actually fall behind. It shouldn't actually be too hard to do, since DH is in Chicago this week, so I don't have to turn the TV on all week, and I'll be able to study quietly every evening after I put the boy to bed. I'll still be up til midnight or 1 every night, but at least I'll be getting stuff done!

And, I'm getting some of my holiday knitting done on my study breaks - finished one of the socks I'm making for one of my nieces this morning. So that's going well, too.

AND, we should be getting our new roof within the next week or so - I'm really excited about that. No more buckets in the living room! Yeah! Of course, that just means that I have to have the next thing on the list fixed next, which at this point is the boiler - once the roof is sound, if the guy needs to go up on the roof to sweep the chimney (which will probably need doing, 'cuz it hasn't been done in forever), I won't worry about him falling through or sliding down on the crumbling shingles. Then I can worry about why my bathtub has started leaking into my basement (the last time boy bathed - it'll be showers for him for a while!). I'm not looking forward to having to fix that one (although I hate my bathtub with a burning passion, and would love to have a new one, I don't see that happening any time in the near future. Maybe after I get my master's and a good-paying job as a SLP. Then I can fix it. Or, I can buy a new house and just demolish this one, which is what it deserves).

Well, that's my stream of consciousness rant for today. I feel better now, even though no one will read this, for getting it off my chest. Thanks for listening.

I'm off to study now. Wish me luck on my midterm.

Oh, here's a picture of the yarn I was spinning last August - my friend never called me when he was in town, so I never got it to him and I still have it. Next time I talk to him, I'll ask if he wants me to send it. I made him a knitting needle roll for his birthday, too, which I didn't get a chance to give him. Oh, well. Here's the pic anyway. I made three skeins, totalling a little over 200 yards. I think he could make something nice with this. I call the color "Forest Pool".
