The result of all of this sitting and staring (and cursing) at the computer screen is that my eyeballs are all burnt out, and for some reason I think the idea of cleaning the house before Worthy Opponent's uncle arrives from Hawaii tonight (we found out on Saturday that he is coming) would be a good idea. So we will have a quiet evening at home, and I will wash dishes and fold laundry and read ... well, after I have the nice little lady at the Chinese restaurant (the Old Szechuan) make us a yummy dinner. I'll get my order together for my tulips ... and finally make some progress on the list of things to do.
Aaaaaaah. I feel my stress level going down already. (Oh yeah, and this article in the New York Times about the crazy voter registration drives they've got going in swing states is very much helping my mood.)
