April 2, 2005:
It snowed last night and again today. The snow is beautiful. I have to admit it. But, not now please! I want spring to come.
My exam went well, at least I think it did. There is another person that has yet to confirm my assertion, the instructor. I should know by the end of April how it all went. It was an Internet thing, do it at your own speed, ending with one long exam that had to be written in person at a proctored site. It has to do with library work, although I hold out little hope of imminent employment in that field. The courses are expensive, so I have to wait for better times to take another.
April 6, 2005:
Attila started his new job this week. It is too early to tell how it will go, but so far so good.
Our relationship began running as it hit the ground. Two children at home, a Ph.D. under way and no money coming in. Responsibility was our mascot. We weathered it all, grateful for any time we had together.
Our mutual bout of unemployment this past winter, has also been our first opportunity to spend time together. Although plagued by worry, fear and stress, we have taken to each other.
I am of two minds today. I miss Attila. Time spent in my own company is deeply satisfying. The emotions involved are not well balanced, at this point. All will settle, in good time.
Soon enough, Mist and I will become accustomed to spending quiet hours together. It helps too, that we live in such a beautiful place. I can step out the door and be instantly lost to the landscape.
To occupy my mind, I have begun setting up MySQL databases and using PHP to develop web pages. I hope to learn a great deal, and to work on implementing some of my genealogical research on the Internet. And who knows, perhaps this site will get a facelift.
My web hosting situation has changed somewhat, in keeping with my diminished financial status. I hope that the changes aren't offensive, as they are necessary.
