It continues. It kind…

It continues. It kind of freaks me out that the list seems to be getting longer instead of shorter, even though I swear, we're getting a ton done. But I think that's just because I'm needing to plan out further in advance to try to make sure things don't fall off the radar. I hope.

      Heh. 🙂 Yes, they are, David. Don’t eat them! But if you arrange them carefully in the middle of a bundt cake ring, they peek up very prettily. And then you don’t eat them.

      Lori, you don’t need to fret — I don’t have the energy to make this cake properly from scratch on Sunday, so this will be a mediocre version using cake mixes. Perhaps I will make the proper one again for Kavi’s birthday party, if I can find the recipe.

    2. I love lists.

      Will you add “Look at Lori’s emails about AWP panel” to your list? Pretty please with daffodils on top?

      Let me know if there’s something I can bring to Kavi’s bday.

    3. You can buy zip drives (thumb drives, I think you mean) at Best Buy. Probably at Target, too. Or OfficeMax or OfficeDepot…
