I will be headed into my last exam for the semester in a couple of hours.
There are lots of things I want to share, and hopefully soon I will be able to do so. I've been working quite a bit, and not just for school - I've finished 4 Odessa's, a pair of slippers for my mom. I started another hat for my cousin - and I need to make another for his brother. I started on the Butterfly frill, though haven't picked it up again since Thanksgiving. I'm to the hip shaping on my Simple Knitted Bodice, although that too is worked on only sporadically. I bought the yarn for Sahara (and would like to rave about Sarah's yarns, which will also have to wait for a while).

Tomorrow, I will be making a holiday dinner for my friends (or those who haven't left for home yet). The turkey (all 22 lbs. of it, the largest Kroger had) is defrosting in my refrigerator. I will be making another grocery run after the exam gets out, even though I'm technically suposed to go to work. Tonight will be devoted to cleaning my long-neglected condo, especially my fish's bowl, and Berkley's litterbox. If I'm good, I'll make it to an end-of-the-semester celebration at some bar (Scorekeepers?) later on, though I pretty much celebrated that this weekend (premature, I know).

So, soon I will post photos, descriptions, more progress reports. I have been busy, I promise - too busy, in fact, to stop and describe what I've been doing.

In just 4 hours

Pathophysiology will be finished forever!

(That's not to say that I am in any way prepared for the exam...)

Die evil patho book!

Why did the new Knitty have to come out now?
I have three exams and a paper due this week.
I have a half-finished simple knitted bodice staring at me, along with a just-begun butterfly frill and a long list of Christmas presents that need to get made.
And I have to learn half the body's systems (and how they can go wrong), be able to comprehend ANOVA charts, memorize the history of breastfeeding/nutritional interventions AND describe why a peer-reviewed journal can still publish crap.
Meanwhile I still don't have a tree or lights, and haven't even begun to think about Christmas cards.
It's a cruel cruel world, I tell you.
