...just me and the baby!
Theseus has drill this weekend. Normally I'd go back to MA with him, but I just started this semester and I don't want to get behind right away. I'm trying to put that off until after Thanksgiving, if I can help it haha. So here I am, on the couch with my laptop while the baby sleeps, trying to get motivated. How can I when it's so beautiful outside? This may be the last really nice weekend of 2011 - I have the front windows open and the breeze is just glorious.

Also - did I tell you I have poison ivy? It's so bizarre. I have never in my entire life had a reaction to poison ivy before. I'm still not 100% positive that's what it is, on my arm. It has been responding to the Calamine lotion, so it's poison something. It's terrible! And I'm actually super-angry about it. I want to suit up in HAZMAT gear and firebomb my whole back yard. You are a plant, poison ivy! How dare you do this to me?! Don't you know your place in the world? You can try and make me itchy for awhile, but it's only going to make me more angry and more determined to hunt you down and destroy you. What were you doing in my yard, anyway? Go grow in the woods next door where you won't bother anyone. Well, no, not now - it's too late. Victory shall be mine, poison ivy.

Well, I guess that's it for now. Tomorrow is the 10th year since the attacks on 9/11/2001 - still trying to compose my thoughts, so perhaps I'll have another post in the afternoon tomorrow, but maybe not. The breathless 24/7 coverage of all-things 9/11 these past couple weeks has left me a little drained. We'll see.

Oh and since there is no one here to stop me, I think I will have red velvet cupcakes for dinner. Muahahahaha!
