bundled up, walkabout, snow

getting sleepy

Flar hasn't check in since he went for his call with Gaucha. We just got the phone call to the docks in Cats and Dogs, so there's not much longer.

Plan (a) Once the movie is over, I'm sending them all up to bed. And then going to bed myself.

or

Plan (b) maybe I'll just go see if he's up for relieving me. I'm really sleepy.

no changes to the list, so no point in putting it here.

ooh, ooh, Plan C. He just came downstairs!

night all.

the headache is ebbing

Wow. I woke up with monster sinus headache from hell. The kind that says get out of bed NOW. Flar handled breakfast for the boys; I got up a little later and fed my headache Diet Dr. Pepper, Excedrin and Sugar (in the form of Golden Crisp cereal).

It's still there, but ebbing.

The last of the sleepover kids just left. It was a pretty low-key sleepover -- four boys is way easier to manage than 14. ;)

Now, where did I put that list... Oh well, I know what I'm supposed to be doing: posting bills. ick poo.

Sunday is no day for lists

I really didn't get much done at all today.

I woke up with a sinus headache, one that forced me out of bed, but that responded to Excedrin/caffeine/sugar by going slowly away.

The last of the sleepover guests left by 2pm. Flar went out to drop something off at a client's, and to replace his laptop. He had to settle for a lesser model of HP than he had his eye on, in order to get something that was in stock, so he'd have it for his trip to Brazil this week.

I fixed grilled ham & cheese sandwiches for lunch, and then we went out to get the boys haircuts. We also stopped by CompUSA for Flar to replace the expired rebate coupon that came inside the computer box.

For dinner I made sausage gravy and biscuits. I kept track of amounts this time, so now I have an actual recipe for my gravy. I did it so I could track calories. (But I haven't added them up yet.)

After dinner, the boys and I started a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. We got the entire frame of it assembled before it was time for bedtime reading.

And now I'm waiting for pillows to dry. Flar and I have decided that the reason we're both having sinus problems is that the pillows are overdo for washing. I've got one pair in the dryer, one in the washer, and we've two more pillows and my stuffed animals still to wash. I'm going to change the sheets tonight, and we'll see if this helps.


After that, we went out to get the boys haircuts,
