Mood: Tiiiyyy-yerrrrd
Hair: French-braided outwards, still 98% in place after 15 hours
Eyes: I apparently don't look well, but they don't feel horrible
Listening to: Beast talking to his family...and golf (in February--WTF? Can you say "torture"??)

The meeting went fine (though of course there was drama--when is there not?), and we had no major crises with meal prep/cleanup except a broken plate and two broken coffee cups. Sparky is no longer allowed to touch anything breakable. (He also spent 20 minutes in tears...still working that out.) We ran out of spaghetti sauce, but we have about 10 lbs. of noodles left. The kids earned about $30 each for about 90 minutes of work.

I need to send an email to my family about what's going on in our lives. Trust me, you regular readers know a helluva lot more than most of my family. It's too complicated to explain to them.

Two quick things: an acquaintance from church probably died today (we got the news via prayer chain email that his wife had requested the pastor immediately), and a coworker at the library is having more tests done to ensure that whatever has been going on with her for the past several months is NOT cancer. She looks quite ill, in a worrisome way.

Oh, and the NIU thing...hit even closer to home this weekend. And that's all I'm willing to say about that.

Did I mention I'm tired? I also have a killer sinus headache, which has been around all afternoon and is fading into manageable proportions now that I FINALLY took the pill I set aside to take at 2 this afternoon. After I compose this email to my family, I will be going to bed. No memes tonight. So, up I go to turn on the heated mattress pad so the bed is all ready for me when the email has been sent.

Good night.

P.S. Also, this is funny.
