Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Texan

Still alive
But I pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth yesterday. I never felt like doing brainwork - which bills stuff is, and it's got priority right now - so I ended up just playing Scrabble and reading the day away. I did make grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner, so that was something, I suppose.

I'm sleeping in the guest room right now, so Flar can toss and turn and move from bed to recliner a lot, trying to sleep with his bronchitis. Sitting up helps, but he doesn't sleep deeply that way. Yesterday morning, I slept in, then stayed in bed reading instead of getting up.

This morning, I got by by 10. I made pancakes for the boys, and cooked oatmeal for Flar. From plain oatmeal, not a packet. After that, I got the boys to help me decide on meals for the week, and then made a grocery list. Critter went with me to the grocery, and we stopped by Ro & Knight's on the way home. Ro made a beautiful Mother's Day card for me to send to my mom, with the butterfly that I made from beaded, counted cross-stitch.

Now the groceries are put away, and we're about to head out to watch X-2.
