Not much And she knits tooing around here. Instead I've been:
*Gearing up for back to school. Which mostly means reminding kids that school is coming, buying them shoes and thinking ahead about lunches and schedules. Nothing too onerous. This is the first year in a LONG time that I'm not part of the back to school rush for myself either as a student or instructor. There was the year I was on maternity leave, but even then I still felt like a student. This year I'm just the mother of two who are going back to school. It's weird not to be on an academic calendar. But also great since I'm not teaching!
*Picking film festival movies. Due to new day job I won't be seeing my usual dozen or so films but I have a line up of 7ish movies picked and while I'll be a bit sleep deprived, I get to see movies. I love movies and don't get to go as much as I like to. TIFF is a good excuse to just do it and go. I'm seeing more Hollywood ones that normal, but they fit the schedule better. Can't wait to see the new Cronenberg and new Coen Bros. films.
*Working. It's all good, but sometimes a bit too much.
*House. We're in the "thinking about hiring a contractor" stage for the garage since it's a bigger job than we can handle. Not the actual construction but the permits and drawings and building codes. I know these rules are around to make sure things are safe and so people don't build wherever they hell they want, but they do keep handy people like ourselves from actually being able to just build a damn garage in the same spot as the old one that's already there (which was the plan when we bought this place). I want Claudia to be in a safe dry home and to avoid scraping the car in the winter. And I still need to finish painting all the work we've just done inside so I can put away the damn tools already. At least there aren't 5 saws in the living room anymore.
So am I going to get much else done this week? Nope. Just work, Lettuce Knit Night and then off to the cottage for the long weekend--sun, sand, trees, lake, beer and yarn.
