I've spent all day today feeling like I might be getting sick. Scratchy throat that has come and gone throughout the day, and pressure behind my eyes for a while this afternoon as well. Hoping it's just allergies, or something mild that I can fight off, since I'm supposed to work tomorrow afternoon and then Andrew and I are supposed to go out to a friend's birthday party after I get home -- a night out *together* with other adults, for the first time in ages. My parents are coming for the weekend to be here with Andrew and the kids while I go to work (since Andrew's not yet supposed to lift Ian) and then babysit for the evening while we're out. Tomorrow is also our 11-year wedding anniversary. We were gonna go out to celebrate that on Sunday, but have decided to postpone those plans until Andrew is a bit more recovered from his gallbladder surgery.

I made pumpkin muffins this morning (with some "help" from the boys), and have so far eaten 3 of them today. They are yummy and I can't seem to stop eating them. Glad my parents are coming tomorrow to help eat 'em, since Ian and I are the only ones here who like them, and I have 2 dozen mini muffins and 1 dozen regular sized muffins (minus the 3 regular-sized ones I ate and the 2 mini-ones Ian has eaten).

I watched the first hour and a half of Olympic coverage tonight with Corwin, and it left me wondering if there were actually any Olympics today. :P The first half-hour appeared to be a Bela Karolyi retrospective, mostly focused on the 1996 women's gymnastics team. Then they showed a bit of women's volleyball, and then a reasonably long segment telling us what swimming events they are going to show at some unspecified point later in the evening. Then a cut back to more women's volleyball. After that was women's springboard diving, and then it was 8:30 and I put Corwin to bed. I've since turned the TV off in favor of computer time -- I think I may just be getting Olympic'ed out after watching each night this week so far.

Andrew's gone off to an RPG session at a friend's house this evening, so it's just me here with the kids tonight. Computer time, then shower, then reading and/or bed sounds like my agenda for the rest of the night, I think. There are some towels in the dryer that I'll have to put away before I can take my shower, too. Yay for housework. :P

[ETA: Also, today makes 2 days in a row that Ian did not nurse. I wonder if that means we're done.]
