About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza...

You may recall the musically-challenged classmate of Fourthborn’s, who thought the line in the Elton John song was “Buh buh buh Benny has Tourette’s”. Same classmate also came up with today’s title, offered here for your musical pleasure.

I was crazy-busy again yesterday. Four tapes, or five reports, from one of my attorneys, and one report from another. I did not take my morning or afternoon breaks; instead, I took half of my lunch at 12:30 to run down and inhale a free hamburger from the barbecue which building management was putting on for the tenants. I took the second half of my lunch at 3:30, with my knitting, in the break room.

I was physically tired but mentally invigorated.

I think we had a good presidency meeting last night. We assigned a [very] few sisters to new companionships, found visiting teachers for some of the others, and basically got our toes wet. We have lots to do before the program is running the way I think/hope it should run, but I don’t want to be all new broom sweeps clean.

I was in bed by 10:15, with 46 rows done on the Sunrise Circle Jacket. I put 4 more rows onto the front before packing to leave for work today. And now I am out the door. Have a great day, everybody!

I think we have finally found the right amount of stress (from a good place) for you to be happy.

I like the headline and first paragraph. Funny.
