bundled up, walkabout, snow

No work this week

So tonight, I will finish the laundry, update the Rookettes Records and prepare paperwork for the chess tournament.

I could clean the kitchen table and work on bills, too

Critter didn't bring in the paper this morning -- I was sleeping in, and often act as comics-noodge -- and by the time I brought it in, it was rather wet. The jacuzzi makes a great paper-drying table.

Critter's birthday was fun. We had pineapple meatloaves with mashed potatoes and baby carrots. And strawberry cake for dessert. Then we played a number of rounds of Spooks a new game by Steve Jackson. A little like Uno, but when SJ takes an old standby, he definitely puts his mark on it. Very fun.

I got the chess roster finished and sent to the right individual, who has already acknowledged receipt.

I loaded the dishwasher last night, giving Critter a break for his birthday. Then I had a nice bubble-bath and phone call with Wolf.

I got to bed at a reasonable hour, but I had trouble getting up this morning, so I slept in a bit. That was a treat.

Now it's time to leave for carline.

very very wet

It's been raining since I noticed outside at all today. Sometimes heavily, sometimes light, but mostly just straight down, drenching rain.

Marshall Branch is out of its banks, and I had to drive through high water that was all the way across Vince Road, more times than I can count. Got home safely, and no reason to go back out. I'm glad I don't have work tonight.

Potato-cheese soup for dinner.

Communicable Diseases letter

Strep is at school again, and Tigger came home with the communicable diseases form letter. I'm not worried about him catching it - he won't even drink after his own family members, so I can't imagine him doing anything at school that would expose him to what's going around.

But I'm posting the information for each of the diseases, to have it here in a handy place. Thanks, Wolf, for helping me with the formatting. :)
