The mysterious painter did show up yesterday,
We have learned that our house is sided with yellow pine. This is good because “it lasts forever” due to a very high sap content but bad because it doesn’t hold onto paint as well as some woods might. So we’ve noticed.
I’m up to the top border on Alpine Lace! It’s only taken me forever and ever and ever!
To finish my degree, I have to apply to be readmitted. It also looks like I’ll be chosing a new advisor as the previous one was difficult to pin down. This might mean that finishing this damned degree will take longer than I’ve anticipated, but at least it will be done. I hope. Maybe. Someday. Bleh.
