  • So I never really talked about Passover beyond the first days.  Right.  So Pesach was nice.  We spent Shabbos at the College Park Chabad and then the last days with leahmiriam and her husband, Joel, which was very nice.  I discovered that I have what I have termed, "Ping Pong Prowess" which cracked Lauren up.  Well, basically, I sucked at Ping Pong, but after playing 40982876 games, I got a lot better.  Hence, the Prowess.  At one point, Lauren was actually <i>trying</i> to hit me with the ball, and I decided she was simply jealous of my ping pong prowess.  Anyway, the long and the short of it is that we had a great time but I'm extremely happy to have our own beds back!  6 days out of 8 we were away from the house, and it gets to be a bit much, no matter how great your hosts are.
  • I've been fighting a sinus infection or some such ooginess for about 3 weeks now.  I'm getting tired of it.  I'm finding it difficult to draw a whole breath into my lungs and I feel really weak, so I'm beyond the point of ignoring the general sniffliness and exhaustion.  I'm going to the doctor tomorrow morning.  At least, that's the plan.
  • A realtor is coming over to our house tonight to tell us that our hopes of buying a house in the area we want in the price range that we want are absolutely unrealistic.  Hopefully she won't laugh too loudly.  ;)
  • My boss's wife just had a baby boy.  The bris is Friday.  My boss is so excited that he can't stop talking about various breast feeding issues.  Heh.
  • I know far too many people with babies.
  • Seth's going out of town Wednesday.  He's only going to be gone until Thursday night, but this is still going to wreak havoc on me... I'm going to forget my medicine, forget to eat, and probably not wake up in the morning.  I am absolutely pathetic.
  • Seriously, I'm pathetic.
  • I have a couple chick flicks to watch.  I'm looking forward to it.  Yay for me.
  • We had an extremely pleasant Sunday.  Seth went to a Continuing Education (CE) breakfast in the morning, not that he could eat anything, but at least he got CE credits (he has to have them to keep his pharmacists' license).  I cleaned up the house a little bit (though it was still pretty cluttery), did a whole boatload of dishes, put a load of laundry in, made the bed, and then plopped down on the couch in exhaustion.  Then Lauren and Joel came over to pick something up from me on their way to the Leesburg Garden Show.  Seth and I then ran a bunch of errands, bought a bunch of games (yay!), and came back to the house.  It was about 4pm at that point and our intention was to head over to the Feld's at 6:30 for a BBQ and Bridge.  But I was feeling crappy and exhausted.  So Seth went, I took a nap, and showed up later.  I probably never would have made it at all except that our air conditioning wasn't working and it was 80 Degrees Fahrenheit inside the house.  Anyway, a good time was had by all at the Felds' house.  Their friend Kalpana was also there and she's an excellent bridge player.  Becky just watched as she's just learning (Seth's just learning too, but it worked out well because it was a no-stress way for Becky to learn what she was doing without having the crunch of figuring out what to do on the spot).  Anyway, had fun.  Seth played well, I got shit for cards, but it was good.  Hopefully we'll be able to play again soon.  :)
  • Today I'm at work and mostly wishing I weren't here.  I'm exhausted and my whole body feels seriously weak even though I theoretically got 7 hours of sleep.  Hard to get good quality sleep when you keep waking up unable to breathe, though.  So we shall see.

That is all.
