It feels like every time we get really bad weather, I have to go to class. Of all days, it’s always when I am going to downtown Toronto in the middle of rush hour. As I mentioned yesterday, we got some snow. By some snow, I mean 15cm of snow. For my American readers, that’s about six or seven inches. Add, on top of that, the wind blowing it around.
It made for some really treacherous driving, as the roads were slippery and the plows can’t be everywhere at once. I left home at 3:30, got Nick from school, and got to my husband’s workplace at 4:15. After that, it was actually surprisingly smooth sailing. I was really pessimistic at first, but I suppose that more people than not decided that they’d stay at home and NOT drive. All the better for me. Greg and I got to the Korean restaurant at 5:15 and waited an hour for the others to show up. Then, it was a matter of SHOVELING our food into our pieholes and arriving at class just when it was supposed to begin. At least we made it.
I got some really good feedback on my story and have some significant changes to make. I’ll sit down with Alex this week and make those changes. Also on the list, lots of stuff. Here’s a checklist, mostly for my own reference.
- Work on Red Surge inks
- Work on pages for Condo story
- Get prints made for the table at comic con this Sunday
- assemble craft for Nick’s teacher
- draw picture for Nick’s principal
- knit cowl for Nick’s librarian
- knit for my mother
- knit for my cousin’s son
- knit for my niece
- laundry — dear god, the laundry
- dining room table
- drive out to a secret location to pick up a secret gift for Alex
- go giftmas shopping for the kids and get gifts for Alex from the kids
- bake cookies with Nick
So much to do with such little time. So much to do that I don’t wanna do it… but it has to get done.
Off I go to knit.
