grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...

I'm back in the midwest...

Well I am now back here in Madison. I arrived yesterday morning and spent the day running errands, and then watching some movies with Jo (skip White Noise- it wasn't worth it). I actually unpacked everything from my trip already (this usually takes me days) and put my snazzy new suitcases away (I came home with far more stuff then I left with- highlights include the new suitcases with really nice rims on their little wheels, some ceramic cookware, and some yummy fiddleheads!) I fell asleep at 8:30pm. I was up at 4:30am EST to catch my 6am flight, afterall. I went back to work today. I wasn't as swamped with emails and things to do as I thought I might be, though. Everything at work was pretty quiet and slow. Just the way I like it. I just need to get away from Wisconsin (well, actually grad school) every few months, and I also need a Maine-fix twice a year or so. I feel generally refreshed and so much less frazzled. Even about the prelim. Maybe I had to hit sheer panic, and then come out of it into someplace of cool composure (well, not actually composure, but some kind of disassociative survival mechanism). Could I panic again tomorrow? Tonight? It could happen. Whatever it is, it is working for me right now. And speaking of work I ought to be getting something done. Jo is playing piano, the a/c is working and I am drinking ice tea out of one of our new lovely amber-colored glasses. And I have fiddleheads to eat tonight!
