I am way too swamped. Shopping, cleaning, & cooking, and the ever present half hearted attempt at studying. Let's factor in work in a crazy local government Pension office and what do you have? Someone who will be thankful for the new year! My treat for this holiday will be taking a class at the Library of Congress on how to do research there. I am so looking forward to the newspaper collection. The librarians are so helpful too, they act like my stupid questions are not a waste of their over educated time. So while I am thinking of Vivian, Pete, and other yeggs I will have to wait on the writing.
