However, despite only starting to make a focused effort today, I decided on a topic for my presentation, got a bunch of papers from the internet to read and mentally started to outline it. I have no idea whether what I'm doing goes even in the right direction, but I figure I've got to start at some point.
In other news, the parental vacation seems cancelled or at least on hold for the moment due to bad weather and disagreement over where to go. That means both of them have plenty of time to come up with stuff I could help with such as reading knitting patterns to my mother or typing emails for my father. Even Bro and Sis manage to find things for me to do even though they don't actually live here. Somehow, I was looking forward to the parentals going on vacation ;-)
