a brief overview of thngs other than the museum of nature:
(there were also steps to be built, pumps to be mended, a dock to be hauled, and a basement to build. there are still some of these things.)
and this one:
– the great glebe garage sale
– my niece’s 10th birthday party and my grandmother-in-law’s 90th birthday party. they’re on the same day, but one will see her whole extended family and the other will get pedicures with girlfriends. guess which is which.
– research. i was planning on going to an academic conference for the weekend, but i am totally exhausted and the weekend hasn’t even begun. that said, i need to get my butt in gear. i have under fifty weeks until my research is due.
i am unplugging for the rest of the day and perhaps for most of the weekend. i need to do some serious research and recharging, lest i be able to function next week.
