winding down

I've been running around on errands all week, in preparation for a number upcoming events. DD is going to her first sleepover tomorrow, and Mom leaves for Boston Sunday morning. Sunday is also our day to go to the Ostrich Festival... and Monday is the first day of the kids' Spring Break.

So: big changes coming, with Mom leaving -- at least we have the buffer week of Spring Break to get me back in the swing of things and used to it just being me & the kids around during the day. Transition time, so I have to be atuned to the kids' moods and make sure that any unusual bumps get smoothed out.

Lots of knitting going on, too. I finished DD's blanket, and another skinny scarf for the silent auction. I'm working on the last silent auction piece now, a black wrap. It's going well, it's just a question of keeping at it.

I'm up to full dosage on the new arthritis medication, but I can't tell if it's doing any good yet. Supposedly I should give this stuff a good 3 months before making that call. It's OK, I can live with things as they are now. Other than that, I'm doing OK, except for some post-op throat weirdness that comes and goes. I am resigned to such weirdnesses now. It's just life.

a good kind of business, don't you think?
But what is an ostrich festival? Do you eat 'em or look at 'em?
