Work...still sucks. Was on the phone most of the day yesterday trying to fix an Invoice problem caused by the billing system. :bangs head: I am PART TIME, dammit! Leave me alone!!!! :sigh: I can't get the other contract done if I'm on the phone all the time with THIS one.
Sewing: I'm letting it simmer while I do the contract stuff. I'm working on the wall-hanging off and on; 4 of the 5 goat blocks are quilted. I'm hoping to get it done this week so I can hang it.
Elul: The cleaning bug's still here. I spent time yesterday cleaning out my part of the closet. Got rid of 3 bags of clothes; 2 for donation and 1 for trash. Cleared up 40 clothes hangers.....these were mostly things that I had bought for work, but didn't love. Why keep them? I can sew now (even if not well, at least I feel like I *can* sew things, which is good), so I can make clothes that fit and look nice and suit me. Let someone else have the clothes I don't like.
Had to have a repairman out for our fridge yesterday. The icemaker's borked.......it's gonna cost $350 + tax to repair. Which is OUTRAGEOUS, but what're you gonna do? We can't buy a new fridge for that (it's a 27 cf (I think - it's BIG) JennAir that we bought used a couple of years ago. The fridge is FANTASTIC...but it's an expensive model. Parts are overpriced. I need the space for all the eggs, cheese, milk, and normal foods that we keep. (We do have a garage fridge now.....but that's gonna be filled with homebrew this weekend...so, not much room for dairy and eggs. :sigh:)(And the garage fridge doesn't have an icemaker - that's why we bought it. No need for ice/water in the garage - but we do need it in the house.)
Oh - Ali, Anna, here's something interesting: HebCal says that Elul started today. iCal says the same. According to my widget (moon phases), the New Moon was 2 days, 9 hours ago. (My Feast book matches up with the calendars)....so, we have a "problem" if you go by the calendar vs. actual New Moon. :wink:
Gotta go rustle up breakfast - hope this posts!
