Odds, ends.

Ok, so I generally don’t mind February too much because it’s a short month and once you get it out of the way the weather starts to clear.  Except as you know this year is Leap Year so we all have to endure February for one more day.  The humanity! 

I am so frickin’ tired of bundling up just to go outside, y’all.  My arms, my legs, my feet all yearn to see and feel the sun again.  I don’t know how all y’all up north do this for the majority of the year.  No wonder you drink. 

Of course I need to be a leeetle more regular at the gym, so that when the Great Uncovering comes I’ll look less like a walrus.  An albino walrus. 

I’ve inherited a bag full of camera equipment.  Unfortunately, while it’s nice equipment, it’s all film.  I’m deciding what to do with it — do I put it up on eBay or do I try to use it and learn something?  One thing I’ve always wanted to do is learn to do photography, you know, take pictures that evoke a feeling. I see a lot of really nice stuff on the blogs I visit, and I see a lot of it in my job, and I can’t help but think that it’s a learnable skill. 

Yesterday a miracle occurred.  I called to see where we were on the list for Spawn’s testing, and I actually got to talk to a real, live person.  And that real, live person was able to give me an appointment date for the intake interview (which is just me going in there and talking to the doctor about the problems, and probably crying) which is in three weeks.  I don’t know how quickly the testing will follow after that, but it’s the first glimmer of hope I’ve had in a while.  I’m trying not to inflate it any more than necessary but when you’ve been wallowing in a pit of frustration and despair that’s a tall order. 

One more day in February.  Woo!
