Orientation day

In case anyone was wondering what light duty looks like, this is it, lol.  Lots and lots of cutting, gluing, and laminating.  I spend the majority of my day buzzing people into the building and making materials for the classrooms.  It could be worse.  I prefer to be busy.

Today is Dante's college orientation, and I'm not sure how I feel about it, except that I'm glad to be out of college before he got in.  That was pretty much my only concern.  There was no way I was going to share my computer time with my undergrad while trying to complete a master's degree, lol.  I'm home from work today to take him and keep Alex busy while we wait. 

This summer is the 3rd in a row that Dante has watched Alex while we were at work, only this time I learned from past mistakes and actually make plans for them to go and do things during the week so they can get out of the house and stay off each others' nerves.  So far, so good.  Tomorrow they take the bus down to the 2nd run theater and watch Home.  Alex is pretty excited about it.  And next Friday they have a play date with a friend from church to go to a playground with a water feature.  That should be a lot of fun for him and if it's easy enough to get to, they can go as often as they want. 

I'm starting to relax now that Dante has turned 18 and graduated, and basically nothing is different, lol.  I don't know why I was convinced that 18 would be some magic number where Dante would suddenly detach himself from the family and disappear forever.  Maybe that was what my mom was worried about when I turned 18.  I just remember that my senior year was particularly difficult for us and I couldn't understand why.  I think I get it now.

My knee has been aching more than it has in a while because I've been sitting behind a desk.  It's really hard to get comfortable, and PT was harder yesterday than its been in a while.  Hopefully I'll adjust to this new schedule quickly so I can get back to doing what I do.  I'd probably feel better if I were working with the kids, but I still can't run or get into holds yet so I'm not allowed.  Thankfully, I can get out and walk around the building every few hours to loosen the knee joint.  This photo is a view from the parking lot.  The humidity is unbelievable, but it feels good to be out there.

In knitting (the thing you actually came here to read about, lol), I've turned the heel on my latest design and I'm looking forward to starting the leg and getting into the calf increases.  This could go quickly.  And I'm also excited to be able to play along with the Scarefest this year, now that I don't have any more assignments to cut into my time.
