little review

Poem for Thursday

It was a quiet day punctuated with bouts of screaming at the dryer, which is not working again -- it will turn on if there are fewer than ten items in it, but only for about 15 minutes, at which point it will overheat and require at least 15 minutes to cool down. So it was a very slow laundry day, considering we had clothes from traveling as well as everything that didn't get washed at the end of last week before we went away. Older son asked me if I could pick him up at school after his last exam at 2 p.m., but I begged him to take the bus and picked him up instead at the first bus stop on this side of the Beltway, then took him to get cough drops and Dayquil so he can survive his math test tomorrow.

Both kids have exams tomorrow, so we had a quiet afternoon and evening that mostly involved studying, though I saw bits of Jurassic Park while folding laundry (it's finally on cable, I was not missing the opportunity to record it) and we all watched a couple of episodes of Arrested Development before bedtime -- the office Christmas party episode where inappropriate couples sing "Afternoon Delight," and the office softball tournament episode where Ed Begley Jr. recruits Gob. Now we are watching Stewart and Colbert, though their "Night of History and Balls" was funnier!
