what a long, strange trip it's been

The past few days have been amazing, including discovering a radical and rocking Sweet Adelines/barbershop harmony singing group for young women (they said they'd stretch the age range down to accommodate a certain enthusiastic participant), rocket launches, pool date with friends, visit to the science center, and happy-making developments in the work world of both adults.

To top it all off, last night I went out solo(!) to hang with a big bunch of my old friends, one of whom is visiting from out west and provided a darn good reason for us all to get together. I've known most of these folks since we were around the ages some of our kids are now. We've traveled the country together, seen a million bands together, been in each other's weddings. Kind of bizarre and time-warpy to be talking with them last night about who's retiring when, who is now cancer-free, who's getting a divorce, whose kids are pursuing careers in what part of the country, what live music we've all be enjoying, and to look around and notice that everybody looks basically the same, except for the increasing number of gray hairs mixed into all those guys' ponytails. :-)

Somewhere in between it all, there has been a heckuva lot of work and many hours dedicated to a certain secret project that is coming along quite nicely. Update on its Ravelry page.

My kids are yo-yo'ing like crazy this weekend. They brought up your son and talked about his interchangeable strings. Jesse made an impression on my kids!
