... for now, at least. Oh, there's a Very Bad Thing that may be coming down, but what the hell: I'm scrappy, so I'll manage. And besides, It's a sunny morning, and I'd rather focus on a couple of excellent things:
1) I have a new newphew! He arrived Saturday, and is the latest addition to a roster that includes two nephews (Mr. B. and Emergency Backup Nephew) and one niece (Lady T). New newphew's name sounds like he's destined to be a historian of the early Republic (American, not Roman); his pseudonym will have to wait until I know him better. Making up pseudonyms is part of a crazy auntie's sacred duty.
2) Lady T. is coming for a solo visit this summer! She's 9 1/2, and pretty independent for her age (not to mention almost as tall as I am -- zoiks!). I'm really looking forward to this... as well as to the slightly younger Mr. B.'s visit later on.
So, heading into the week focusing on the positive. And as for the negative... okay, my school library is considering seriously restricting our access to an essential research resource. And that sucks. But as I said, I'm scrappy, and I do my best work when people are trying to get in my way. Heh.
