In other news, not so much other news. I was going to watch Zoe today, but Tom and Roshani woke up sick, so they're both staying home from work with the baby instead. Probably just as well -- I can read with her here, but not as much as I ought. Especially since between the conference stuff in Utah and Bryan visiting here (which was great -- after I got home on Sunday, we all went to Red Light for amazing dinner, followed by Scrabble, and yesterday evening, after a day of work, we went to Costa's for v. good dinner, followed by Boggle (Kev didn't play, but he had fun kibitzing) -- Bryan is a lot of fun to hang out with), I'm a little behind schedule, and will need to buckle down hard to catch up. Which I can do. More Iyer this morning; easy reading so far, though sometimes depressing.
It's a grey and gloomy day here, and I have to admit, my mood's been a bit mopey. I made Kevin wake up and snuggle me for a bit before I got out of bed and let him go back to sleep. Just accumulated stress, I think, bringing me down. But I'll have another cup of tea, and then in an hour or so, I'm going to make grilled cheese (gruyere, mmmm) sandwiches and tomato-basil soup. Comfort food. It's a good thing.
