Up and Down

It’s been an up-and-down week here at rolling casa de Bryant.

We’ve been brushing up on our español. We leave Thursday for a week of sun, sand, sea, and Spanish lessons on the beach.

I got a job! Almost out of the blue, a company contacted me via LinkedIn to talk about a remote-work job documenting Java applications. They’re in France, which is cool, though I won’t be likely to travel there for work.

My mom got sick. She actually came down ill on Valentine’s Day, but she is still sick and in the hospital. Sister says she is doing a bit better and is now walking again, which is a very good sign.

I sold a couple of travel articles, and have been writing them this week.

I knitted the gussets for a pair of socks I’ve been making for John. Unfortunately, I knitted them wrong and had to frog back to start over. I haven’t had the heart to start over, so they languish in my knitting basket.

I wrote a few thousand words in my romance novel. Not nearly as much as I wanted, but more than I had before.

I found a pet sitter for the cat while we’re gone. I’m very pleased, and will be meeting her tomorrow to walk her through Alladin’s routine.

My computer has been spontaneously crashing/restarting. We may have traced it to a driver problem. We’ll see.

John and I went to Miami yesterday and down to Little Havana. There was, sadly, no party or even much of anything going on in the wake of Fidel Castro’s resignation. We were surprised, mildly disappointed, but ate an amazing lunch at a Cuban restaurant.

Today, hopefully unrelated to the lunch, I am sick with stomach pains. I feel a little better now, but I’ve spent most of the morning moaning and groaning and laying in bed, reading a book.

  1. I feel like I’ve seen more job news and postings from Europe lately; I wonder if it’s partly because Americans are a good deal at current exchange rates. Congrats!
