I have a few more pantry post ideas as well as a post to share how we kept our credit rating good enough to eventually buy this house. That all comes next week.
I'm in the midst of a few very busy days. My husband and his brother have to return to their sister's house near Chicago today and Christopher is having friends over to a LAN party while he is gone. There are very few opportunities for these friends to have LAN parties these days since all of them are either in college or working.
I plan to be out of the house for a few hours and then lock myself in my bedroom with earphones. :)
Christopher is beginning to feel better but his recovery is slower than the average hernia surgery since it included removal of the birth defect at the same time. He's trying to catch up on college classes and he finally returned to work yesterday (just for the afternoon). Thankfully, he works on campus so he could take a break and see a counselor about his application.
He has decided to change his major to computer science instead of any engineering (perhaps doing the five year Master's Degree plan) and that has brought about the need for summer school classes... sigh. So many important decisions are made during these late teen and early twenties ages.
The changes complicated his admissions but after talking to the counselors at the department he'd plan to major in, he realized they weren't willing to let him do a double major and the people in computer science were quite used to creating more individual curriculum.
We're enjoying a touch of spring with temperatures in the 60s. With all the snow gone, the evidence of a few powerful winter storms is all around us with small tree limbs down and minor damage to our chimney. Our fence has been damaged in two areas, including the front section which was taken out completely in the worst of the storms. I hope we have a better spring!
So, what are my plans today? I think I'm going to slip out before the young people arrive even though I am quite fond of them. When one has been in the midst of a LAN party set up once, one does not want to be there again. Far better for me would be sitting at Panera with a cup of coffee and a scone (if there are any left by noon) with a book and perhaps pondering what I'll write tomorrow.
I may just have to stop by Goodwill and the thrift shop. It's a tough job but someone has to do it... especially when one's home has been taken over by a group of gamers.
