Head still down, working too hard, burning what bits of candle are left at both ends, getting sick (what a surprise), stressing out, more health scares with Dotter, but a hospital visit averted... sums up the past week pretty well. The review is coming along, but it's a huge amount of work, and there have been a few 'editorial battles' along the way to spice things up. My Project Editor is good to work with though.
If anyone knows where I've put my Social Security Card, please let me know. I need my SSN for a US tax form thingy, to prove I'm not American, argh. Kind of ironic, needing an American SSN to prove I'm Australian... hmmmm.
I got a Social Security Number (a SSN isn't just for Christmas, it's for LIFE) when I lived in the States in the 1990s, and haven't needed it til now ... and no, I haven't been careful about where I put the card. Dumb dumb dumb. And you wouldn't believe the rigmarole to retrieve the number (or maybe you would)... time to start going through the boxes in the garage. And FIL's garage (even more scary, cos that one has RATS).
Progress is being made on Lara, as you can see! I'm past the sleeve holes! Dotter suggested just knitting in 40 stitches of waste yarn, which will be removed and reveal 80 live stitches for each sleeve. Much neater than the pattern's 'cast off 40 sts, and then make 40 stitches using a provisional cast on' method. That's the line of white/purple yarn for one sleeve at the top of the pic. I just love this top.
OK, gotta stop blogging and reading what everyone else is up to now, back to work (working til midnight every day, and all weekend, is starting to wear thin....).
