After shopping, I made dinner for the fam last night. Salmon grilled on cedar planks, ditalini with red pepper, garlic & spinach, and a salad. Everything came out pretty amazingly. I love cooking for other people. I miss it.
Oh, plus I got to talk to Brian. We hadn't talked for a bit, and we had to play catch-up on each other's lives. I hadn't realized just how much I missed him.
I've been working on my Obama paper for the past two days, and I'm up to 564 words. She said "at least 1000 but if you do everything you're supposed to, it'll be around 2000." I'm focusing on one aspect of his campaign (bringing integrity back) and there's only so many times and ways I can say the same thing. Especially without sounding biased.
I've got a pretty bad sore throat today. It started last night and it was NOT helped by the broken sleep I got. I had to keep getting up to let Jack in and out of the doggy door because apparently he still hasn't mastered that, and kept whining at the door. I just have to open the door a tiny bit and then he'll go through, but I thought eventually he would go through by himself, but he didn't, so the incessant whining kept me awake. And then of course he and Padfoot had to bark outside forever, and then come in and run around. I know they're just being dogs, and Padfoot is happy to have a friend, but it's very frustrating when you're sick and trying to sleep.
Today is Sam's birthday! She's 25 today! We are going out to celebrate. I won't even be out of class until 10 pm, but I'll go hang out with everyone afterwards. Here's hoping I don't still feel like crap at that point.
