copper and ellie

(no subject)

Still here, just quiet. :)

Monday, I spent most of the afternoon at the doctor's with Val, because she has been feeling under the weather again. Since they were working her in, we had to wait awhile, and then she had to go to the lab (no wait, thankfully.) I had class to teach that night.

Tuesday morning I hung out with mom. We did a Starbucks run and played some Yahtzee, and it was good. :) Tuesday night Hope got into town, and we ran errands in a truly hellacious thunderstorm.

Wednesday, we took Hope to the airport (and fed her lunch). She is in Europe visiting a friend in the Peace Corps, lucky duck. Wednesday afternoon was entertaining, as her flight out of here ran late because of weather in Newark, but she made all her flights and is having a great tie. I had class to teach that night.

Thursday we took Val to Edward McKay to restock her on books.

Yesterday, Jeff and I had a little Friday date, doing Moe's for lunch and B&N for browsing. (Moe's when you're avoiding gluten and most1 dairy: rice, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, black olives. Not bad at all.)

In between, I've been watching a lot of In Plain Sight, doing a little reading, going for a couple of bike rides and walks, playing a lot of WoW, talking to faecat a lot. I love summer break.

1. So far, things that seem to be compatible with my digestive system: goat's milk yogurt, parmesan cheese, blue cheese. Evidence is starting to mount that it might just be lactose issues, which can be dealt with. Oh, hey, that means I should try butter next. Or maybe it was just the gluten all along. We'll just have to see. In the meantime, blue cheese! :)
