on being useful

Feeling kind of blah today. Would respond positively to unsolicited acts of kindness, but wait, that's a solicitation. Sigh.

Let's see... Dishes are clean; mail is opened; quicken is up-to-date with a report printed; I'm caught up on the paper - didn't try the crossword today, given how hard it was yesterday; I caught up on coupons yesterday before I shopped; the kitchen table is still a bit messy, but down to a dull roar -- need to figure out a permanent home for the pictures frames that chess club gave me; I've started four loads of laundry so far - hung out two, have one ready to sort; I haven't cleaned the toilets - maybe I should think of that as a bi-weekly event. So I guess I got caught up this morning.

I also fixed the casserole that I wanted to have for dinner last night. It's ready to pop in the oven when I get home with the boys, and I can bring a serving to work. Assuming Opman doesn't call and ask me not to come in. And I made a smoothie to drink with my leftovers for lunch. Mmmmmm .. strawberry-banana-nilla yogurt-lemonade goodness. Flar wasn't impressed. It was a perfect foil for the spicy Zatarain's, though.

Flar's printer ran out of ink while he was printing a letter to TLS, so I'm leaving the house early this afternoon. I've got three ink cartridges to trade in for paper, when I stop by to buy one new one.

I guess that's it for my morning. I've got time for a shower before I head out.
