bundled up, walkabout, snow

mid-morning update

Brr. It was -3°F when we left the house this morning for school. Jessamine county schools were closed, but Fayette county and The Lexington School were in session.

After dropping off the boys, I stopped at McD's for a fast-food lunch, and then went to Bébé's to install software for him: upgrade from Mac OS 9.0.4 to 9.1, and install the latest printer driver for his HP All-in-one. Then printed a window in Finder and scanned a couple of things to test it.

Went over to Sam's to pick up water, bagel bites, ind. pizzas and oatmeal. Also bought blistex tubes that I'm going to put in all the coat pockets, as well as a few likely places around the house. I'm tired of not having one to hand when my lips are cracking.

Forgot to get strawberries for Wolf's cake, but all I'd likely find this season would be frozen, and I'm pretty sure we still have some. Have a cake to make tonight. I may have to make it after I pick up Flar from the airport, if I'm short anything, since I haven't done an ingredients survey yet.

Still have mail to deal with, and a few loads of laundry. The kitchen is about 15 minutes away from spotlessly clean, so I hope to be able to put the house is reasonable condition for Flar to come home before I have to leave to pick him up.

Next: lunch.

The zyrtec still has me groggy in the morning, but I'm getting used to it. And I didn't wake up with a headache this morning -- I'm beginning to suspect that I can't sleep in, without getting a headache as payment.
