but i got that job.  the one i really wanted.  and it's been great.  i'm really happy and really excited and really into it all.  i don't know if i ever really expected to feel that way.  ever. 

a new schedule has been an adjustment.  waking up before 7 am is something different.  going to bed before midnight is too.  but it hasn't been too bad.  i like making my lunches and putting out my clothes the night before.   

the patterns for the book are finished.  we're in the editing and photography stage.  em sent me sneaks of the photos and they're beautiful.  this project has felt a bit quick and my confidence was shaky, but after seeing them i know it'll be fine.  i just need to get on the ball with my intro and acknowledgements.
