Other small news -- I've invited people over for potluck brunch this Sunday -- if you're in the Chicago area and not on my invite list, why not? Drop me a line and let me know to put you on it. (I realize hosting people may sound like a stressful activity and inappropriate for such a rough week, but a) it's potluck and b) I feel the need to see people and get back to my normal life. So there. :-)
And in the good news department, the iTunes music store people have agreed to let me re-download my purchased music, though they emphasize that a) I'm supposed to backup, b) this is purely a gesture of goodwill, and c) in the interests of fairness to others, they won't let me ever do this again. Fair enough. If I get it back this time, I'll be happy.
At this point, I really do just want to curl up under the covers for the rest of the day with my tv and my computer (hooray for technology), but I have an appointment with my personal trainer at 10:30, and while I do think I have a good excuse to cancel, I'm actually going to be virtuous and go in. So, up for a cup of tea and some light breakfast (mostly 'cause she gets mad if I don't eat breakfast), and then gym clothes and a walk through brutal cold to the gym. The weather report says it's 22 degrees but feels like 9. Chicago, eh. Not loving it today.
