The kids don't go back to school 'til Monday, so it feels a bit futile to try to get any work done -- and yet, there is work to be done. My cold is almost behind me [she said determinedly, cough cough], so I think I'm going to try working today, at least in pieces. To that end, turning off Facebook for the morning, my dears. Goal -- wash the last of the party dishes, say goodbye to Kevin's parents (who are heading to the airport), do two loads of laundry, deal with some academic e-mail. Should be do-able by lunchtime.
