I'm sure it would have been great. A literary gem. Instead, let us give thanks for bullet points:
- My new phone just arrived and I'm waiting impatiently for the battery to charge so I can play with it. It's sort of a smart phone - in that it has a touch screen and can use the internet and appy things - but I'm still pay-as-you-go so I'll only use the Internet at home and in places with free wi-fi. I know, this seems kinda stupid, but it made sense to me. I don't need a real smartphone because I'm mostly at home within five feet of my beloved laptop with an actual keyboard.
- The weather is ridiculously warm and I've hung the laundry outside again, which I only do when it's warm enough for my fingers not to go numb. Which usually means I use the dryer from October to March.
- I spent this morning baking cookies for KeAnne, who bid for them in the Hurricane Sandy fundraiser. I hope she likes 'em crunchy, because they're crunchy. And sweet. And buttery. (We've sampled a few. Just to be sure.)
- I was delighted with myself for finally booking dental checkups for the kids and for myself. The reminder postcards had been floating around the sideboard for months. Then I found myself reading an old blog entry (what? it's like leafing through your own photo album, you know?) and discovered that they went to the dentist as recently as last August so they're not overdue at all. However, I suspect Dash has a cavity (on a brand-new adult molar! it must have come up that way) so I think we'll keep his appointment anyway.
