This morning I met a Flickr friend for coffee. It was good to talk, to put a face with a name. While I was gone Adam and a friend were trying to install a new drum in our dryer, the one that broke just before Mardi Gras causing us to give up using the dryer for Lent instead of giving up nothing. Unfortunately, the parts don't fit and we'll be without a dryer for the duration of our stay at this house. And Lily spent her day under the weather with a low-grade fever, which didn't help the dryer not fitting right fiasco.
But what can we do? We're just riding this train from here on out: a yard sale Saturday, Lily's birthday Sunday, the end of the semester next week, Adam's birthday, then we're on our way north. It's sort of incredible that we're doing this and sort of not incredible that we're so tired. So I won't feel bad about lounging around watching TV and going to bed early. Eventually this will all even itself out.
