Proof that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing

When I started blogging here, I was quite ill. I told friends that I would post at least weekly. If I didn't, they should check with Bad Dad to find out what happened to me.

I was rather quiet last week, but I am fine. Bad Dad was away on a business trip and I was holding down the fort at home alone while dealing with end of fiscal year madness at work.

What's the point?

Bad Dad and I work at the same FFRDC. The IT department sent me a notice that they would be delivering my replacement office computer (and taking away my current ailing one) on 1 September. My division administrator sent me a notice that I am moving offices (to the other side of the same building) on 3 September. The travel department sent me Bad Dad's itinerary for his upcoming business trip the same week. All the federal agencies that fund me (4 in the past year) want their end of fiscal year reports. I've just been put in charge of the data flow planning for a new project.

Who, in their right mind, would move their physical self and their virtual self in the same week? And on a week where they are working unpaid overtime as a good corporate spouse and temporary single parent?

Things may be rather quiet here in the next couple of weeks, but my health is fine.

I must knit more with this yarn. It's so mesmerizingly beautiful.
Valium by the meter.

  1. Wow--you're not kidding about the beauty of that yarn! And really, when it gets down to it, nothing beats plain old aran cables for sheer knitting and viewing pleasure.

    this is really beautiful- have you gotten any further than you were at Bernina Club? Probably not given the last week you've had... hope everything is settling down for you now!

  3. As a matter of fact, I finished the back last night. I am almost done with one sleeve. The half-way mark is in sight.
