    Lazy Saturday - with Scones!!!
    I was really excited about NOT waking up early today. This quarter is a little more relaxed than working was - 3 days a week. I go to the gym before I have any classes, so I don't even shower before I leave the house. Two days a week, though, class starts at 8, so I need to leave here at 7:30 (if on the bike -- 7 if weather's bad).

    This morning, though, I was awake at 6 a.m. To the sounds of my poor Beloved being ill. I was worried about him, but he came back to bed and was back sleep pretty quick, so I followed suit.

    We'd gone to bed last night without cleaning up from our Friday night Nachos & Monty Python evening, and had planned on doing it this a.m. Instead, I got up and shut the bedroom door so he could sleep, and took care of it myself.

    When he woke up (10:30ish), he said he thinks he's okay. He was going to make scones this a.m. in honor of St. Patrick's Day, but I took over the project, still being concerned that he's not okay (and I only just now thought if he's not okay - I don't want him kneading dough with his bare hands!)

    My scones came out TERRIFIC. They were very very very yummy, and I'm proud of them, and I am not ashamed to brag. They were chocolate chip scones. Beloved had suggested I put 1/2 cup of chips into the batter, which I did. Before I threw in who-knows-how-much-more into the mix straight from the bag :) I'm glad I did. They were great.

    The weather is nasty. Yesterday's snow is now slush, thanks to rain and fog and mist. E went out this a.m. to check out the situation -- wondering if they could take the sleds down the street to the big hill. The report was negative. She said it's awful out.

    So we're holing up here. J is still sick from last week - her strange fever migrated to her chest, and she has a nasty chest cough. She has her first ever standardized testing this week, and they have their play on Friday night - she really needs to get better. I'm keeping her medicated and forcing rest upon her.

    Unfortunately, a side effect of her sickness is that she's whiny, and honestly, as much as it's so very un-J-like, it's so annoying. I have zero tolderance for it. She's been sent to her room twice today, and was sent to bed ahead of E last night, and didn't get to watch the special features from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (the clips from the Japanese version were HYSTERICAL).

    I need to do school-work today, too. Which is very hard for me to do on the weekends.
