As the silence may have given away, I have been preoccupied. Again, I resort to the list form. Yay! Unoriginality!!!

1) I am no longer in Missoula. The damn school kept "nickel and diming" me and every time I logged in to the system I had a new charge crop up, most of the time for something I'll never even use. (Honestly. Nature is my gym. I don't need a gym towel laundering fee...) I also was spending an inordinate ammount of money on art supplies, for most things that were duplicates of what the art department already had. More than vaguely alarmed I wondered why we couldn't just use what was there if the items were for student use anyway, but it seems that they department is saving those for a rainy day. I wondered just how bad the art department was, if they were saving items for "just in case" when current students could use them. When I came back to my dorm room to yet another charge I said: "That's fucking IT," and unenrolled the next morning. I came back to Powell on Tuesday, September eleventh. This turned out to be a good thing.

2) My mother needed a second surgery to correct her spine after a total knee replacement, and now that I'm here I can take care of her during the day and get her to physical therapy. It has helped me focus and I feel like I'm doing something valuable instead of just waiting for spring semester to roll around.

3) I plan to go to Laramie in the "spring" but will be moving down there in November. One semester there is half of what I'd pay at Missoula, and the departments I want to attend are tops, according to the people I know who already attend there. Kiss my arse, UMT. Hah!

Whoa... I knew you were way busy, but I didn't realize all that had happened!

I hope your mom is doing well... has she had the surgery already?

She had it this last Monday. She's doing very well. Thank you!
