Christmas Presents, Schoolwork

I've already started thinking about Christmas presents again, since it was nice to have everything done in time last year. So far:

-Grandmas - tea cozys
-Grandpa - socks

And that's it ;) I'll think of more in awhile. I've got lots of time after all!


I need to make another list of school items that need to be done, so that I can check them off and make myself feel less overwhelmed.

1. Anthro paper on cloth in Incan and Aztec society
2. Communications Topic Assignment II
3. Communications Topic Assignment III - 5%
4. Prepare Communications presentation (Due April 3)
5. Volcanology Lab 6 - 80% (Due April 7)
6. Volcanology Viscosity Lab (Due April 7)
7. Volcanology Lab 7 (Due April 7)
8. Volcanology Term Paper (Due April 7)
9. Receive corrections and rewrite Topic Assignments II and III (Due April 10)
10. Communications Poster (Due April 10)
11. Correct and rewrite Sapphire term paper (Due April 10)

I'm not dead yet...

Sorry. Illness has really caught up with me. I'm about 2 weeks behind in schoolwork, basically locked in my apartment due to joint pain, and I can't even knit to keep my sanity (because of the sore fingers/wrists/elbows). Anyway, I'm sure that's not what anyone who still comes here, is here for!

Nothing much is new, although Sean has a great new job opporunity with GW, so hopefully he'll get it (he has a phone interview on the 26th).

I'd also like to thank Kimchi and miked for the well wishes :) Kimchi, they actually did check for celiac, which I don't have thank goodness. But they were so sure they scope me twice! They're 99% sure it's Crohn's at the moment, but I had a capsule endoscopy yesterday so that should be pretty definitive. If it's not Crohn's, it's some sort of rare (so they tell me) motility disorder, and we'll just keep up with painkillers for stomach and joints, and nutritional supplements for weight loss.
