bundled up, walkabout, snow

Jiggety Jig

I'm home again. My Nicholasville home. I get to spend portions of 5 days in my Louisville home, starting tomorrow. Which means I have tons to do here. ;)

I was dead tired when I got to Louisville yesterday. Long layovers in airport should make for a more relaxed travel day. And, they do, but I also got up at 5 am CDT, so it was just a long day, and I spent much of it toting around my carry-on baggage.

While I was in St. Louis airport, I got caught up on list-mail, and even worked for awhile on a writing project. Go me!

I finished two books while I was on vacation - Watership Down and Equal Rites.

I got to nap and reconnect with Wolf and Sydb before I drove home last night, and I got to see the boys before they went to bed.

I made some phone calls on my way home, and bowling is now very confusing. I need to call the Tuesday secretary to see if I can understand what's happening.

Stuff I need to get done today:
  • Laundry - I've already sorted it, and started two loads
  • Unpack/Pack
  • Shop for Lebif & Lady_A's wedding gift
  • Find out the low-down on bowling and prepare for tomorrow
  • Figure out a slight more refined schedule for what I want to do this weekend for my birthday
  • Send out an email to TLS parents about first chess club starting up a week from Friday
  • Catch-up on dishes, newspapers & coupons
  • Work on bookkeeping

Update: I knew I was forgetting something. I also need to call Opman about work, and tomorrow I have to remember to get my allergy shot.

Tonight, Knight and Ro and Kittybane and Starmaiden are coming over to celebrate my birthday, which is tomorrow.

Tomorrow, I have bowling in the morning, and then I'm going to Louisville, either from bowling or from home, depending on how ready I am.

I'm home, I'm writing

Load three started.

Unpacking commencing now.

Thinking about packing... Gotta look at weather forecasts, and does anyone know what the dress code is for the wedding this weekend? Mmm, roughing out the weekend counts under packing, I think.

And, hmm, I think I should bump up the priority of catching up on dishes. Newspapers and coupons can follow me around, but the dish pan is full...

Progress Report

Hmm, never got to dish-washing -- that'll come after I get home, then.

What I've done:
  • The last load of laundry is in the dryer, my clothes are folded and put away, Matt's are hung up and in his basket ready to fold, and the boys' are ready for them to sort.
  • Unpacked from my trip to Texas. Yes, I just got back yesterday, isn't this amazing? Quick turn-arounds make for a wonderful incentive.
  • Consulted with Flar about what to buy for Lebif and Lady_A. Called and got it set aside to pick up after bowling tomorrow.
  • Worked on a massive plan for the weekend, including looking up movie showtimes and finding bead stores in Louisville
  • Called and left a message at work; no one is working the switchboard, so I'll need to float this particular phone call on my calendar until I get through

What I have left to do:
  • Get the oil changed in my car
  • Take the boys grocery shopping on the way home from school.
  • Work on bookkeeping (In this case, find a new home for the spread out, but sorted piles of paperwork, so we can use the dining room table tonight.
  • Fold and Put away the towels
  • Pack for Louisville
  • Find out the low-down on bowling and prepare for tomorrow
  • Send out an email to TLS parents about first chess club starting up a week from Friday
  • Catch-up on dishes, newspapers & coupons
  • Pick up Lebif & Lady_A's present after bowling
  • Get my allergy shot

Under Orders to relax

Grin.

I only get to celebrate my birthday once a year, so I'm milking it for all it's worth. Knight and Ro and Kittybane and Starmaiden are coming over for dinner, and Flar is fixing it. Knight and Ro consulted on the menu, so that it will fit better into their diet.

I just got done putting away groceries: "just a few things, plus 'about to expire' coupons." And Flar told me to sit down with a glass of wine and relax. So I'm relaxing. At least as long as it takes to catch up on email and LJ, and finish my wine. Then I might pop up and work on my list some more.
