Slow Going and "Giving UP"

As you will soon see, dear 3.5 readers, the title belies the true intent of this post:).  The baby blankie for Kristin and Sonny’s baby is growing at about the same rate of the baby as you can see. And as you can also probably see, my desk isn’t getting any neater!  I am able…

I love nancy

Have you ever seen a really truly good person in action? I did tonight. At bell prax, we were all standing around while our director, Nancy, handed out new (Easter/Lent) music. Stupid me – I started talking about news cameras at the courthouse today (had to file something and today was the deadline). The trial…

FRIDAY:)!!!

Well, I’m done with my work for this week and I’m hanging out at home, chillin’ away.  I’m planning on a quiet evening at home tonight because it seems like every other night this week has been busy and the weekend shows no sign of letting up:)! After court this morning, I got home, and…

Now where were we?

The past two days have been rather nice, if tiring.  I think I finally crashed today! The huge majority of my visits have been completed and I have five percent left to do – the troublesome five percent that I will have to work twice as hard to get done!  But employment is a good thing, so…

Full of Hope and Sunshine!

When last I left you, dear readers (whatever number you are), I had just finished celebrating an abstract concept – time on this earth and in this body – really an artificial construct, when you think about it – for what is time? A passage marked by the beating of the heart? The seasons? Milestones…

OK, Enough with the Politics – back to knitting and other things:)!

Hello, dear 3.5 readers! Hope things have been well with you.  It’s been a little while since I last posted and my knitting has been really catch-as-catch-can — more so than most weeks.  I have been on a visiting clients blitz – some catching up and some getting ready for upcoming hearings. In the past…

Monday Monday Monday

Well today was a fairly productive day! It started out slowly, but picked up pace a bit.  My very kind co-worker covered the one hearing I had this morning (uneventful, so I didn’t feel too bad about it) and I went to a meeting in Ellicott City, a family team decisionmaking meeting at DSS, and…
