* I went to math class. I spent the first half of class doing the homework that was due. I spent the second half of the class doing the homework for the lesson he was teaching.
* Oh, and I went up to the board and did a very nice integration problem and got my final from the last semester’s class and life was generally good.
* Soreness abounded. Shoulder holster or business shirt, I’m not sure which, rubbed my neck the wrong way. My feet, my poor abused feet, were horribly sore from the stupid shoes of doom.
* Matthew and I drove to Richmond to lobby our representatives at the General Assembly. I learned that wearing brand new pair of shoes to an event where you will be walking and standing for most of the day is a stupid, horrible, painful thing to do. I have learned my lesson. I swear, there’s a trail of blood across the marble floors in there.
* I also learned that lobbying means a lot of standing around. In lobbies.
* The baby was mostly sweet, and slightly sour.
* The children spent the day with Clayton and Katie; they played video games and went to Chuck E. Cheese’s.
* After all the kids were asleep, Matthew and I were so tired that we went to bed without dinner. Seriously. We’d intended to get up after a fifteen minute snooze to get food for ourselves, and I woke up around 2:30 in the morning and brushed my teeth and went back to bed.
* Matthew and I watched _Stardust_ together. It was cute.
* I packed my diaper bag and spent the evening getting things together for Lobby Day.
* The kids helped me clean up the house.
: Recipe for a microwave-proofed bread.
* I mended Matthew’s dress pants with some black cotton fabric. Sewing black on black is horrific, especially if you’re using itty bitty teeny tiny stitches.
* I read way too much about IIS, MySQL, PHP, and MediaWiki. Ouch! My brain! It burns!
* I did one WordPress installation.
* Matthew and I stayed up late watching _Sunshine_. I was cool with it until it turned into _Event Horizon_. I did not sign up for _Event Horizon_. That kind of stuff keeps me up at night. I was highly unamused.
* So, I was already on edge from _Sunshine_ turning into a crappy horror movie, and lo, banging from outside. Matthew saw someone trying to kick in the neighbors’ door and I told him to call 9-1-1 because it was one in the freaking morning. The police came. The next two hours consisted of our neighbors auditioning for the Jerry Springer show. Loudly. With plenty of police cars. And in temperatures below freezing. WTF, people, WTF.
* The kids got up and rushed outside in order to properly frolic in the snow. They built the only snowmen on the block. They even built a snow dog.
* I made lasagna for the Friday fooding. Matthew had gluten-free baked macaroni. Same ingredients except for the pasta, yay!
* I went to the grocery store and stocked up, since multiple days next week have snow symbols on them. Joy.
* Oh my God, the snow. Big and fluffy, small and icy, snow, snow, snow. And then it started raining. Meh.
* Matthew drove me to school because I was a little leery of driving in the snow. Two-thirds of the math class was there, which must mean that they love the class as much as I do. We did hyperbolic functions. Sinh(), cosh(), etc.
* We went to the mall and I bought two dress shirts, a pair of dress shoes, and three pairs of nylons. I hate shopping.
* We had to nix plans to go out to Bonefish for dinner because the weather was just miserable. Chef Boyardee to the rescue.
