Someone asked if we'd decided about Oxford, and no, Kev didn't apply for the job. I pretty much left it up to him -- I'd have been okay either staying or going. At least for now, we're staying.
Yesterday was my day off -- I watched baby for half the day, then Kev took the other half, and I mostly goofed off with Warcraft, although I did do a bit of paper organizing. Today, I have Kavi most of the day, but hopefully she'll let me get some work done -- goals: finish putting away the last of the CA clothes (we're SO CLOSE to done), catch up on e-mail, fix SP website with Jed's help if he has a little time, start clearing exercise area. Tomorrow is errands day -- while Jarmila watches Kavi, Kev and I need to go to Macy's, grocery store, Target, who knows where else...
