Back to Work!

Well, not really. I had yesterday off for MLK Day, but I still worked from home. Makes sense right?

And the school semester has officially kicked off. What was I thinking? I am taking 2 8-eight week classes for the first half of the semester and another 2 for the last 8 weeks. It sounded like a really good idea to sign up for the Saturday morning class from 8:30-12 in Naperville. Doesn’t sound so great right now. Funny, but the thing I am most worried about is that I will probably need to get on the toll road and I don’t have an i-pass. For those of you not keeping up with Illinois politics and highway travel, there is a situation. Our Governor, he’s a gem, has decided that the tolls need to double in Illinois. If we buy one of those handy dandy little electronic transponders that we put $$ on (i-pass), the tolls are the old price. I have yet to purchase one of those little i-passes because my mom is buying me one for my birthday–in February. Maybe we can move that gift up….

My finger is much better! So I did some knitting when I wasn’t working yesterday. I made some more progress on the elusive “Here and There Cables” scarf. Don’t worry, a picture will ensue when the scarf is done. The reason I am working feverishly on the scarf is that, well, it’s cold out there!! I heard there is a town in MN that is -52 degrees (F)–that is without windchill. Damn cold! That and I am to the point on the “Thing” where I start color work. That’s new and kinda scary. I want to be able to sit down and take my time learning how to do it. Not rush through it because Yoda has to go out right now!

Think warm!!

We have had Easy Pass in NY for a while here. There are lots of toll bridges and tunnels around here, so it really makes life easier. No more fishing for money and the Easy Pass lanes always have shorter lines. I don’t recall having to pay for the unit though… Good Luck!
