A Busy Day For The Family (grrrrrr)

Today was a busy day, although for some reason I feel like I got nothing done.

For me, the day started with a headache, which some Excedrin knocked down. ellipticcurve joined us early in the morning, and we all went to a Pancake Breakfast to support S&F’s school. After that, I spent the day between doing laundry loads (including folding… I did about 7-8 loads), and playing around with Paint Shop Pro 9, which I just got. I redid a few of my userpics (you might have noticed), and played around with some of the new features.

Even busier were gf_guruilla and ellipticcurve, who spent the day working in the Sewing Room, continuing to declutter. We no longer need to call in Clean Sweep. Yeah, and thanks to ellipticcurve for all her hard work.

S&F has been in a pill mode (or I’ve been grumpy… between the headache, and my arm bothering me off and on), and luckily, ixixlix took her and the Karate Kid to the Huntington Museum during most of the day. S&F is home now, listening to My Fair Lady, and trying to keep putting off doing her homework.

Speaking of S&F… In going through her backpack today, we had a note from her school about how they are trying to update their computer lab (they are a technology magnet). To quote the letter: “If you or your company purchased Microsoft software (Windows, MS-DOS, Office, Excel, Word, Works Suite, Home Essential 97 or 98) between February 18, 1995 and December 15, 2001, you may be eligible to donate settlement money from a Microsoft Class Action suit. Anyone can donate up to $650 of their settlement vouchers to schools. Additional detailed information can be found at http://www.microsoftcalsettlement.com. If you need the name of S&F’s school, drop me email.

As for my arm: It’s been bothering me off and on. Supposedly, it will stop bothering me once the NSAID builds up to a suitable level. I’ve also had it suggested to me to explore a professional massage. Of course, I don’t know if that will help, or how to find one. All I know is right now it is bothering me, S&F is starting to fight back on going to bed, and I’m getting extremely grumpy. I think I’m going to go for a walk.
