An Adventure

things have been going well.  I wish I had more time to write.  Most of my writing has to do with school.  I don't have a lot of homework but it has to fit in with the rest of my life.

My next adventure starts in June as soon as school is out.  I am going to Africa.  Nairobi, to be specific. I will be teaching knitting to anyone who wants to learn for the purpose of micro enterprise.  I am so excited.  And a little nervous,  I don't speak much Swahili.  I will have an interpreter, thankfully. 

I have been knitting as much as I can.  I hope to be able to get caught up some this summer.  I have several projects of my own going and then I have 2 knit for hire projects.  I also have some altering I have to get done tomorrow.

I'd better get my math done so I can watch Doc Martin.  See ya.....

Hacked Off

And I am blue as well. My personal email account was hacked the other day. How awful is that. It is also embarrassing. I might be able to recover the account but I am not sure I want an email account that is susceptible to intrusion. I am getting used to the idea that all that information is lost. Well, I will know in 24 hours if I regain access to my email account.

Well, Only Boy got his license to drive today. I am happy for him and me but I am also nervous. I always feel nervous when my children are out on the roads. You hear and see so many scary accidents. *He will be fine, he will be fine, he will be fine, repeat from * until you believe it.

Okay, so the 'word of the year' is change and boy is it an appropriate word. Daughter #1 is not coming home this summer, Only Boy is working away from home, Daughter #2 is starting high school in the Fall and I am going back to school. I will quit my job in September and for the next 2 years I will live in chest waders and probably smell of fish. But I am really excited!

Well, I said my word for this year is Change. I am trying to go back to school. I already have a degree but I have not used it much. Now that the kids don't need so much from me, I have decided to update my degree and take a 2 year program in Fisheries Technology. I am on a waiting list to get into the program and I will know where I stand by June 1st. I sure hope I get in, I really don't want to wait another year. I cannot work another year. If I don't get into the program, maybe I will quit anyway and find another job. Oooooh, I hate waiting.

Yesterday I said I LOVED Bones. Today I say that I HATE thieves. I (we) work hard for my money and it pisses me off that someone else thinks nothing of stealing what I have. I am not usually a violent person but if faced with the person who violated me in that way.....well, I wouldn't trust myself. Losing a finger for the transgression is not such a bad idea.
I would gladly share, if asked. Don't steal. It isn't nice.

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Bones!!!.
I could so be a squint.
