A quiet Saturday
After an inauspicious start, today got better as it went along. I woke up at six this morning with nasty stomach cramps. The evidence seems to be piling up that I just can't eat pizza any more (sigh.). So I was in and out of the bathroom for a while, then decided (groggily) to sleep in the living room so as not to wake up Jeff.
I ended up dozing on the couch until about eleven. I woke up a lot, especially when the cats were playing (I ended up being a human race track for a short amount of time).It rained today. Not a lot, but every half-inch here and there helps in the drought we've got. Jeff and I headed out for lunch and I actually had to turn on my windshield wipers—it's been quite some time since I've had to do that. After we had lunch, we went shopping for computer desks. I'm not in a position to buy a new one for myself right now, but I will be in a few weeks.
I think we're going to go with one we saw at Best Buy. Hopefully we can get Sean up here again soon so we can use his employee discount—yay! Every little bit helps. I just like the idea of getting rid of the built-up mess in the computer room closet. I suppose I should start cleaning out this desk in preparation.
I started scrubbing down the kitchen a bit to help it recover from last weekend's onslaught. I threw out a couple of really scary science experiment-type foodstuffs and ran quite possibly the most gross load of dishes I've had to run since Jeff and I got married. Noxious is an understatement. Who knows—if I get more done tomorrow, maybe the kitchen will be clean again.
I just haven't really felt like cleaning much this week. I think I'm just now starting to recover from having so many people here. I've been having "crawl into a hole and pull the hole in after you" urges.
Heather's loaned me her copy of Cryptonomicon, so you just hush, Brad. I'll get it read.
Ack. I tried looking over at Edmund to see his silly sleeping-ness on top of the shelving, but I'm having trouble turning my head far to the right. When I moved to the couch, I think I slept at an odd angle, thus annoying my neck muscles.
Tomorrow…ugh, I must be more productive tomorrow. I've got to buy groceries, and we've got a ton of laundry to do.
From tonight's discussion: the Sunday I'm flying out to D.C. is the weekend of the Atlanta Linux Showcase (ALS). Lo and behold, I'm supposed to fly out on Sunday, and guess where my connecting flight is? Yep, you guessed it—Atlanta. The wondergeeks are trying to convince me to drive down for the tail end of ALS and just catch my Baltimore flight from Atlanta. Hm. Dunno. Must ponder.
But for now, reading and then sleeeeeeeep.
