BISIO UPDATE: April

I haven't done a BISIO (Because I Said It Outloud) Update in a super long time (since February....yikes).  So, in the spirit of accountability, here goes:

Grad School:  I'm signed up for Emory in the fall.  I will be doing first year as a law student.  I am quitting my job at DOT at the end of May to bum around (read: volunteer at the birth center full time) this summer.  I really need to find somewhere to live in Atlanta, though.  I am pretending that having a car isn't actually necessary, contrary to everything I've heard.

Sheep-To-Sweater:  I started my sweater!
Or rather, the sleeve of a sweater....

It obviously isn't made with yarn that I spun myself, but I am excited to say that I am in the knitting phase of my project.  In a couple of weeks I will be headed out to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival to learn about sheep shearing....I think then I will be able to say that I can do and/or understand each step of the sheep-to-sweater process, even if my final product is not the result of me doing each step myself.

Doula-ing: I explained in this post what I need to do to to get my doula certification.  I am currently working on one of the last things I need to do before I write my essays and turn in my certification application: observing a birth education class.  I am taking a Bradley Class with nine couples (the teacher and I are the only non-pregnant women in the room).  I am doing my best to keep my mouth shut in the class and focus more on learning from the instructor.  She is pretty amazing.
