bundled up, walkabout, snow

Ready for spring

It's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow, but there is no expectation of accumulation. If we can't get a nice solid snow day, with sledding and snowmen, then I'm in favor of bringing on spring!

And yeah, I know that sunflowers don't really bloom till late summer, but I like the sunny colors...

My head cold has moved into my chest, which mostly means a reduction in tissue use, and sleep frequently interrupted by coughing fits. I stayed in bed almost all day yesterday, after foolishly driving to Louisville for the chess tournament on Saturday. I thought seriously about getting one of the other parents to drive Tigger, but that would have meant missing a change to see my sweetness. So we spent the day at a chess tournament, sneezing on each other. ;)

No work tonight -- I went in to pick up a check for Flar, and when I asked about indexing, Opman told me not to come in. Apparently, all the scanning today has been OCR jobs. There should be something by Wednesday though, and this gives me a chance to catch up on rest.

I'm thinking about taking up fencing. There's an 8-week beginner course starting tomorrow at the Beaumont YMCA...

And now for bills-paying...

Sorting mail and odds and ends does not require great amounts of lung capacity, and can be done in a position to favor a cranky back.

Flar brought his computer downstairs to be companionable while sorting through Brazil pictures. Now that I'm moving to the computer with my sorted piles, he's gone back upstairs. But, while I had him in a companionable mood, I've run through old retail credit accounts with him, and decided which can be closed. He also made me feel somewhat less worried about money by telling me that things should be turning up this summer. If it all comes through, we could actually have all the credit cards paid off before my birthday. It would be cool.

I also told him about my latest paycheck usage. I've been depositing a tenth of my net to use for writing checks of a charitable nature, and $50 from each paycheck to use toward paying off credit cards. The rest, I'm cashing to use for allowance, Christmas savings and spending money.

And now to the Bills, the bills, the bills.
