Chaos taming begun

Well, the house is still a mess, but I've managed to get some work done. I wrote another paragraph or two on the proposal. I edited an essay. I checked work email (almost all junk). I graded two portfolios (two a day and I'm done!). I am about to embark on a new writing project and I need to work on a presentation and make some hotel reservations (these last two on the agenda for tomorrow). Life just doesn't slow down, does it. I'm planning to reward myself with a bath. :)

Geeky Boy woke at 5:00 a.m. with a fever and saying, "I think I'm going to throw up." Not something you want to hear at 5 a.m. Mr. Geeky dutifully tended to him and then set him up on the couch with a trashcan and a cold washrag (a cold-hot, as we call it). Right now he's lying on the couch watching his new Mythbusters video. I hope he's better soon so he can continue to enjoy his vacation.

Later, I may begin shovelling out the living room. It really is a fright.
