Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I'm *sort of* working...
Okay, so I ate breakfast with the boys -- French toast, in honor of the goofballs running the food service for Congress -- and I haven't even started the newspaper, another time gobbler. I was intent on starting with the kitchen. After all, I got over half the counters clean last night.

Then I decided on finding entertianment to clean by. Our remote controls are migrating to some better place. Feh. I decided to stick the Jonah DVD in the Mac, and look for The Song That Plays under the Credits. No such luck, but I wrote down all the lyrics. I'll put that in a separate post. Then I decided to read email and live journal. Now I have to get to work, because I've run out of fun excuses.

Tuesday - Orange
