tuesday...

and no running since Sunday's 6+ miler... I'm headed out the door to enjoy the weather and the nearly-full moon here as soon as I pull TDP DinoBoy from the shower and read his story to him. Hub is feeling punky, so I sent him to bed early, and Elder child is sitting here going through (yesterday's) homework assignment. "here" being the kitchen table.... and me on the wireless laptop, with my wireless laser mousey... gawd, i love my new setup, I tell you what!

The biggest news of the day is that the oven at Casa Skatemom is FIXED!! It only took a little more than 3 months, you know. Twenty-five minutes and $125 later, I had a functional stove. Yippee. The best part, besides that we can now have biscuits for breakfast, is the clock on the console -- how sad is that? So of course we celebrated the return of the oven with a fabulous dinner of....wait for it.... Totino's frozen pizza!!! What? After three months without frozen pizza, that stuff was like manna, I tell you what! This is the sad, sad existence that passes for life here in Suburbia South, I guess!

Gotta run -- I've got to go into the office in Irving tomorrow to get some monstrous downloads and turn in some paperwork. So I'll be schlepping my bad self through traffic again, at least in the morning. I'll be cutting out early so I can finish out the day at the home office, though. How sweet a gig is that? Now if only I'd get a real assignment....

Peace out!

Glad you're getting set up at home finally! How lucky! I went for 3 months without an oven too--had to make Thanksgiving dinner with a roaster, microwave, and toaster oven. It worked though! Nice to have a new one.
