Had planned to get up around 1030 but felt like crap when I did, so I went back to bed and didn't get up again until 1500. Drugs, tea, ramen and other foodlike substances ensued. I still feel clogged, and worse yet the feet feel really dry and possibly cracked in spite of fervent moisturizing. Doesn't make me feel much like going out, and in fact I really don't have to, but I'm thinking that some measuring cups in the right sizes and storage containers for flour and sugar might be a good idea. I'm also out of Lipton's, and should probably pick up some more sandwich meat & soup for the week ahead. For now, I'm waiting for Irish Cake #2 (Kathy's recipe, with baking soda & extra eggs added) to finish its cycle in the bread machine, and then I'll make up my mind.
I see other folks are posting lists of swag, but I'm going to forgo that pleasure since I actually got a lot of gifts early in connection with the trips to Washington; thanks to all my friends and family for their time and hospitality and other contributions to a pair of very pleasant weekends. Thanks also to those of you that sent cards. I promise I'll actually get mine out on time next year.
