Well, I made it almost entirely through Christmas break without helping the kids on their science fair projects or writing the Madam How and Lady Why notes. I spent most of this past week at the DPS, which has in place a remarkable system of avoidance and noninformation for unsuspecting citizens who think they are going to receive civilized treatment.
Nevertheless, as Aravis said in a recent FB status update, we have vanquished the Circumlocution Office and forced it to yield up her drivers license. Rather, she did most of the vanquishing. I really just drove her there and provided moral support and advice and a vehicle for the road test.
So we can cross "get Aravis' license" off the to-do list. But needless to say, waiting in line for hours at the DPS seriously ate into my free time this week. I have several five-finger exercises written for the scales-and-arpeggios book, and I cleaned out our master closet, but that's it. We had a relaxing time over New Year's, mostly recovering from DPS-related shell-shock.
So. We'll see what gets done today and tomorrow. I wanted to at least let folks know that I didn't get to the MHLW notes.
*(The title of this post refers to the fact that I haven't gotten many comments lately. Would you leave a comment if you feel comfortable doing so? I'd like to see how many readers I have. I once had a site counter, but I lost my login info and the site-counter website refused me access when I redesigned my layout and lost the icon, and I haven't had the time nor the inclination to set another one up. So would you leave a comment? Thanks.)
