Yet another late night blog post. And another that rambles, because I'm not tired, but need to get to bed.
Today was a good day. Well, it didn't start out that way, but it ended up there. Justin got a call at 1:30am that one of his guys was puking, so he had to go in and cover the rest of his shift. He got home a little after 6am. :( The nice part was that after the girls went to school, I went back upstairs and crawled back into bed with him. I slept until 11am. I can't remember the last time I got to sleep in that late, and with Justin in the bed. It was wonderful, crazy dreams and all.
I have the sock pattern written up. My friends JoAnna and Mary are testing it. Mary caught a couple mistakes, which were easily remedied. :) She loves the sock, which gives me a warm fuzzy. I like it, too.
Classes are going better than I thought they would. I'm getting tons of people in my photo classes. This session I have 5 people in my darkroom class, and three in digital. People are being waitlisted for some of my classes. I'm making more money doing this than I was when I was still a regular employee. I'm enjoying it a hell of a lot more, too. I'm working on a Photoshop class for the late summer and possibly an alt process class.
I'm still debating grad school. I have money from the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which was a complete surprise. It'll pay for a good part of my tuition if I can get to school while Justin is still AD. I can use the BAH I'll get to pay whatever tuition isn't covered. I'm aiming for UW-Seattle. They have fibers as an undergrad program and a photography MFA, so the work I've been planning to do will fit nicely. I just need to figure out the time to do it.
Wedding photography seems to be what I'm meant to do, at least for the time being. I had another wedding fall into my lap over the weekend. I shot it yesterday. My friend Amy's vow renewal is this weekend. I'm waiting to hear back on one for April, and then there are a few for June/July. I need to get my website polished and put an ad on Craigslist. I'll probably get more than I can handle!
I'm working on another pattern. This one is a sweater based on one Angela's friend wore to her bachelorette party. It's super cute, with a wide neck that can e worn a lot of different ways, set in sleeves, and a really simple stitch. I think I may do it in laceweight on large needles. That seems to work well here.
I think that's all I've got for right now. Oh, the rambling....
