bundled up, walkabout, snow

nice evening

Knight took me to Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Think A Beautiful Mind, where the "sanity" is television-studio-think. ;) But there was enough eye candy to make it pleasant. Mmm. Drew Barrymore. I just love her smile.

I made the mistake, yesterday, of noticing that my face was completely acne-free. Not today.

After the movie, we researched DishTV. They offer local channels in Lexington now, but we'd end up spending about $15 a month more than we do currently, to get what Dish values as worth $5 extra. Flar's going to call up and see what kind of not-on-the-website offers he might get.

Ooh, I should remember to tell him that our current price is scheduled to go up $4 a month next year, when the "plus" channels stop being free.

Tigger brought home his gargoyle. Yeah, it was anatomically correct, but more closely related to a goat than a person. (He pointed out where there used to be an additional appendage: centered between five legs.) The art teacher left the "blow hole" in place in back. Tigger's decided to call it a jet pack, since he seems to have learned that anatomy is frowned on. Sigh.

I'll take pictures later and we can bitch about repressing 2nd graders' artistic attempts. ;)

Cleared off the jacuzzi tonight.

Tomorrow's Musts:
  • wash load with chess shirt
  • print stuff for chess
  • print addresses for invitations
  • mail invitations
  • pack the car
  • deal with mail


I wonder what I'm forgetting.

Today's List

I'll keep updating this as the day progresses.
(Blue entries added during the day; red entries put off to Sunday. Argh)
  • wash load with chess shirt
  • print stuff for chess
  • print addresses for invitations
  • mail invitations
  • pack the car
  • deal with mail
  • make an appointment to take Critter to the doctor
  • take Critter to a 10am appointment
  • pick up ceclor and chloroseptic for Critter
  • take care of sick Critter
  • RSVP for Tigger for a birthday party


8:35am Critter complained of a sore throat last night, and it was worse this morning, so I'm keeping him home from school and he's got an appointment at 10am.

So far, I've made the address labels for Tigger's birthday party invitations, started the load of wash, and made Critter's doctor's appointment. I should have time to shower before I dress to take Critter to the doctor.

He's resting, and watching Next Gen: "The Big Goodbye."

12:36pm Back from the doctor, pharmacy & post office. Doc prescribed ceclor three times daily, and the pharmacist recommended cherry chloroseptic lozenges for pain. Critter is now watching "Déja Q" and eating Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup. I'm having lunch and then I'll get back to work.

2:36pm Now he's watching "Pen Pals" then "Q Who". I'm going to strongly suggest napping without TV, after that.

Working on packing now. Last update until tonight. Gave up on mail. Sigh.
