Afternoon Miscellany

The Maternity Leave countdown clock is gone. Good-bye, widget. You were so good at making me feel panicky and sad.

It's official. I'm going back to work starting May 2nd. That doesn't feel like a good thing, but I'll always be a housewife at heart. I'll just look like a banker, and think about money even more than I do now.

Here's some good news, though: I've been moved to a closer branch, which means I'm saving an hour a day in driving time and gas. How's that for cheapskatery and time-hoarding? I'm saving time and money at the same time.

And I'm finally learning how to use this:

I've got Root Beer Pulled Pork in there right now. If it doesn't work, I'll cry over two wasted cups of lovely, delicious, wasted root beer.

And I finally updated my About page. Again. So I'm changeable. Big deal.
