Mrs. Ha got the news, her doc is merging with another office, and moving to a new building this summer. At least it's in a close suburb, and she has mentioned how she dislikes being the only medical assistant, so we're hoping it's a positive. But there will be changes, and her office is now full of anxiety.
In other summer news, we made tentative birthday plans for the girls for this summer's birthdays, it's early, but my parents were driving the issue, and they like to plan ahead, way ahead. One girl will have a pool party, the other an overnight camping party. Not coincidentally, my parents have an above ground pool, and like to camp in their RV.
I was able to spend an hour or so in my attic Saturday, insulating two more dormer joists with furring and styrofoam sheets. That dormer is about half done, at this rate I'll be done with the attic in 2020. I need to get more furring strips and styrofoam sheets now. Twelve year old was impressed that I was perched on my scaffolding 10 feet above the stairwell, I don't get it, she got to go 80 feet above a stage in her theater tech class.
The lager is going strong, about 10 bubbles per minute now, I'm not sure if it will be ready for the Saint Patrick's Day parade a week from tomorrow, which kicks off our Saint Patrick's Day season. Just as well, I like to pick up some stout for Saint Patrick's Day, though maybe next year I'll have some brewed and aged.
Speaking of the Irish, we ran into Irish_girl and her niece at a local Mediterraneum place, she's trying to get Mrs. Ha to take a Cardio-Strip class. RIASC
I finished Massie's Castles of Steel, it was one heck of thick tome that took me about 4 weeks to read. It's about the British Navy in World War I, mostly in relation to the German Navy. Recommended if you're interested in battleships, rum sodomy and the lash, or the British Navy. I still don't fully grasp all the First Sea Lord, Second Sea Lord stuff.
In other reading news, reading clicked for seven year old this weekend, sure, she's been able to read words and sentences for a while now, but it took until this weekend for it to all come together. Providentially, I found a few Disney Fairy books at a big Goodwill that she doesn't own, she's going through them at about one a day.
