bundled up, walkabout, snow

I'm awake!

I woke up feeling awful - stuffy head, sinus-drainage throat, and complainy ears (my sinus congestion always hits my ears, too). Rolled over and went back to sleep.

Critter delivered newspaper in bed this morning, and it was tempting to stay the day in bed. But I'd left my laptop in the kitchen last night, deciding I was too tired to read smut before bed. Okay, I considered it...

Instead, I took my BP: 117/80, and decided it was safe to take one of my 12-hour prescription sudafed/guaifenesin pills. The ones I used to take all the time. I'm already feeling better, after a can of caffeine, a bunch of meringue cookies, sitting up, and letting the drugs kick in.

I've caught up on email and live journal, and I think I'll wallow in the paper before I think about getting anything "real" done.

Flar finally answered my email about whether to pay the enrollment fee for the boys (at $500 per, this is a non-trivial question) for next year's school year. This means Flar is intent on being able to pay the ghastly tuition for another year, something I wasn't at this point willing to assume. So I sent an email to the lower school head, who was specifically inquiring about Tigger, and she's already acknowledged my email. TLS staff work weekends. ;)

Stuff I haven't written about... my spear-chucking son... two book reviews for 50bookchallenge... spring break plans with family...

But now, for more goofing off.

Dinnertime already

I've been lazing in my pajamas today. I just got around to looking at the list, and got a letter off to the the chess parents. Now I think it's time to decide on something to make for dinner. Specifically, something that generates leftovers, of which we are currently in short supply.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple

  • Took Tigger to last week of bowling
    banquet is in three weeks
  • Mailed Black Knights vest to Canada
  • Left Critter's cornet at music store, for a chem. flush
  • Forgot to go by optician to get Tigger's glasses fixed
    Tigger says he can get by with tape longer
  • Bought beanies at Toys R Us for birthday gift
  • Caught up on Live Journal
  • Got whomped a couple of times at chess with Wolf
    At least in Scrabble, there's the random factor introduced by letter tiles

    Which never fails, of late, to make me sleepy

Turning in

This throat thing is beginning to worry me. I'll see how I feel tomorrow afternoon, as I really shouldn't judge by how I feel in the morning or late night. Right now, it's sore on one side when I swallow. My nose is still marvelously clear from the sudafed.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
