I heard Maria talking on the telephone about it almost being Spring. It’s surprisingly cold here today, about 42 according to our back window thermometer, sitting trying to be usefull until the we’re off on another road trip, really needing it to decide how late to stay in the sleeping bag.
Maria had the flu this week, which made it really hectic. She had a fever Monday and Tuesday and could start really moving around again by Wednesday. We started cooking meals for one of her coworkers this week so Maria can try some more experimental recipies on someone with a more discerning palate than mine, so that kept things hectic as well!
I took two minutes to open up the case of my SFF box today, the fan on the new video card (since the cola lan accident) seems to not enjoy collecting dust. I guess I need to take care of that more often, but the pile of dishes in the kitchen that have been there all week cry for attention. Really working and commuting takes up so much time now. I’m up by 6, get to work between 7 and 8, and don’t get home until 4 on short days (or 8, on long days) and then stare at the pile of dishes and the litter box. This week, there’s been a lot of just going to bed.
We got up early this morning because I wanted to pop into the office to make sure the labs were going to be ready for a class today. Afterwards we went over to Globe for the first time in a while and picked up way too much food, as usual, but brought home a nice box of home fries to pick at over the next few days. With so much cooking recently, the fridge is full of leftovers. It’s the first time I’ve made lasanga that hasn’t dissapeared within three days.
We’re planning on going to the anti-war march today at 1pm, but it’s so cold and we’re so worn out we’ll see how far we get. I really need to get more exercise, I haven’t been for a few weeks and I can feel the fatigue building up again. It’s really weird feeling the motiviation changes that come with getting enough exercise. I’ve been really dismal this week and I’m sure it’s just because I’ve been sleeping too much. Chicken or the egg and all that.
I haven’t gotten any material up on the blog yet. I was thinking about doing it this weekend if I had time, but I actually ended up getting my boss, Mitch, to rant in front of one of the cameras we use for recording classes so I can transcribe an interview to the company blog, because he has so little time to sit down and write something up. He was in the office this week, and this morning when Maria and I stopped in this morning. We chatted about everything, but it’s been interesting mostly talking about health and nutrition. I picked up a copy of the food revolution for him recently, after he kept asking me how to solve world hunger. He was moved by the factual information. It’s fueled a bit of conversation since, as he and his wife have been been vegan for a week or two now.
Anyways, I’ve gotten distracted by conversations, how strange, familiar feelings from years past? Enjoy the third anniversary of the invasion.
