I am a little sad right now because I will not be able to go to the Renzo Gracie Invitational. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Remi needs to get spayed and my work won’t let me get the time off, so these two factors are inhibiting me from going. Oh, well. There shall be other fights, and perhaps in-house tournaments to attend before I make an ass of myself internationally. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speaking of the puppy, she is doing better all the time. She has only made 2 messes this week, and prior to that she hadn’t made any all week. She is also calming down quite a lot, and I think that’s because a) we’ve been playing with her A LOT and b) it’s been too hot for her to get out of control. Sadly, this has also meant a lot of vacuuming…well, sadly for her and Kali, because they HATE the vacuum!

In between taking care of my girls, working my ass off in the gym and at work, and keeping my house in order, I have also been working on a correspondence chemistry course. No – not a high school level course like I took last summer. This is Clinical Chemistry, which I am taking because I’d rather do it over the summer on my own time than take it during the school year. The fact that it is a full-year course being condensed into a single semester doesn’t hurt, either.

On the knitting front, I learned to spin using a drop spindle a few weeks ago and I’m having a blast! I bought a spindle and some roving from Maine Woods Yarns several months ago, but the spinning instructions confounded me so I gave it up quickly. Then Sarah and Andrea-of-the-hideous-variety taught me, and before long I spun up all of my roving. Since I’m on my yarn fast still, I can’t even get roving, but I have a lot queued in my Loopy wishlist so let’s see if I can wait until December…

Today I picked up the sleeve for my seamless sweater that I started at the Fling. God, I missed it. Finally, I am finished with a plenitude ย of gifts for other people, and can work on my own stuff!
