Anybody out there?

I'm trying to decide if I want to blog or not.   Yom Kippur just ended,  so this is a good time to start a new

I've had some job changes since spring.   I've returned to the Spielberg Film Archive with a half time position,  and I'm also working as the Co-managing editor for the Annual, Studies in Contemporary Jewry.   My job consists of finding books which the journal should review,  ordering the books and contacting academics in order to get them to write reviews.   I'm also editing the articles for the journal.   The people I work with are great,  and I find the work  interesting.   Some of the articles are a challenge for me to understand,  but I'm learning lots about many different subjects. 

In other news,  I now have two kids not in elementary school,  so they are responsible for their own transportation (public buses)  and I have no idea of their schedules!  Hopefully by November I'll figure it out.

I'm trying to figure out my goals for the coming year.  I'm not good at doing this,  but I think there are some changes I need to make for myself.
     * improve my health /weight
     * get my hobby equipment  (mostly knitting)  organized
     * learn a new skill (sewing... With my sewing machine)
     * scheduling of household tasks (laundry,  cleaning,  cooking)  so they don't stress me out.

I also want to learn new things and share what I've learned.  Hopefully this blog will be my tool for sharing.

Time to sleep and think this all through.
