Last night was my first down time in a while, and it felt great to sit on the couch and do nothing. I watched a few hours of television – Law & Order, Will & Grace, and Cold Case on TIVO – then lounged in the bed and finished reading my book. I was lazy, relaxed, and very happy to have one night of peace and quiet. Of course, tonight will be mayhem as I try to get everything packed for our weekend in Las Vegas. Ric’s birthday is Friday, so we are going to be there Thursday evening through Sunday evening to celebrate. I know, I know. So much for calm, eh?
