Catch Up

Quick catch up...
Why is looking for a full time job more of a full time job than working a full time job? Yes, I'm still looking.
I admit defeat - had Statistics II this quarter, but was in way over my head, so I withdrew from the class. Decided that a "W" on the transcript was better than risking an "F". (No, the class is not required for my degree, it was a general ed. elective.)
Just got back from Wisconsin. My oldest nephew, CM, had surgery on Tuesday. The surgery wasn't as in depth as the thought it might have to be...they "only" patched his eardrum. 14 year olds on pain meds can be amusing (once you know that they are going to be ok).
Well, amusing to auntie. Mom (my SIL) who is pregnant, and was due yesterday, is ready to send him back to school. (he's scheduled to be out until the 1st of the year).
Got to spend some quality time with the younger nephew. Even got to hear him play the violin. Bravo CJ!
A & W now know what kringle is. I was a bad influence and brought some back from Wisconsin with me. A, let me know if you want the recipe that I have. W, still waiting to hear what you think of it. (In my defense, I wouldn't have thought of doing it if one of CM's friends hadn't given him some on Wednesday. I had forgotten how good it is, but he shared and reminded me.)
Talked to DS today. Still waiting to hear about the knee. Hopefully, next week. Tom Petty is right, the waiting is the hardest part.
Finally, I was reminded why I have pets. The cats were happy to see me when I got home. Well, for the most part. One of them gave me attitude for a while. Now, she's sitting next to me as I type this.
