Well, "a little while" turned into eight and a half hours. By the time she was finished, it was 3:00 in the "what the hell am I doing up" morning. I kept her company the whole time, mostly reading books or newspapers, but also helping her with some print-cut-and-paste work of 5 different 12-page spreadsheets.
We got home at 3:30 (groggily weaving on the empty highway the whole time), crashed in bed by 4:00, and my ass was up and in the shower by 7:30 in the morning. I'm tired, but Kat is in worse shape. She still has a paper to write for her art history class. Oh, and there is a major snowstorm warning for this afternoon. We are expecting between 4 and 7 inches of the white stuff by the time it stops Friday morning.
Is it vacation yet?
