I still don't have my computer back. I think it's supposed to be fixed tomorrow . . . but something is wrong with our car, so that has to go in for repairs tomorrow. Which means I might not get my laptop back until Wednesday. I miss it. A lot. (I am now typing on my husband's very old iMac. It's slow. I don't like it. I'm spoiled.)
Let's see. What else is going on. I have good news on the job front, for me at least. I have work lined up for the next 12 months! I have two half time jobs from now to the end of the year and then full-time work roughly until October (with the possibility of part-time stuff tucked around the edges). Michael is busy for the next month, and there are possibilities beyond that. So at least our economic situation feels less desperate. This is a good thing considering that we have two large and unexpected repair bills looming. But as my brother pointed out to me, at least this means we have a car and computer to start with.
I wrote a fun article yesterday about why the Chicago River runs backwards. At least, . . . I had fun with it. I'm not sure how my new busyness is going to affect the Suite101 plan. I still hope to do one article minimum a week, but we'll see.
Anyway, that's the news in my world. Hope you are all well.
