wood cat

Week in Review

Better living through technology: 1) Chad's new robot (okay, it's just a Roomba, but that doesn't sound as cool), which the dog's slightly dismayed about; and 2) TurboTax, which was worth buying just for not having to do New York's calculations (they are both tortuous and torturous).

Whatever the opposite is that isn't overly dramatic: 1) we're back to "unseasonably cold" on the wide weather swings; 2) neither of us had much energy this week; and 3) my orthodontist has gone worryingly pessimistic on me (though nothing will be decided until I get a lot more information, thankyouverymuch).

Were retail establishments elsewhere closed today? I was very surprised to find that our local mall was closed—so much for my plan to not go on Saturday when I felt too tired and cranky to cope.
