Snotty, Scratchy and Tired

I felt pretty good by the end of the work day. I had accomplished a lot. I spent most of the day updating a web site. Not hard, just lots of clicking an typing.

But as the night has wore on, I think I am getting a cold. My nose is running (and I think we are out of tissues!) I have a scratchy throat and I am pooped.


I have lots of stuff I want to write about here - but my brain is having trouble putting together simple thoughts. So I give up, I'm off to find a glass of OJ and then sink into bed.

Tea for Two and Two for Tea..

This past weekend the family spent in Jacksonville celebrating Karen and Joe's twins by throwing a shower. Chef-sister Laura and I decided to do the girliest thing we could think of, throw an afternoon tea. The tea was complete with tea sandwiches and cookies, a minature tea set on a lemon cake and flowers everywhere. We had a great time. Karen even received a piggy bank with a tiara and tutu from her mother-in-law (a hit of the party).
Then Sunday we spent helping them organize the nursery, putting away a tidlewave of clothing, blankets, bibs, booties and other baby-related items.
Laura and I gave them a Flip Mino so they can take videos of the twins and share with family and friends. Or Karen can start vlogging (creating video blog entries) on her blog Twin Envy. Or
Joe can become a new star on YouTube. Many possibilities.

So I'm kinda tired. And I have a pile of laundry and a dirty house that should be cleaned. I'll get to it one of these days, just not today.
