Tonight, the Krewe of Louisiana rolls in Clarendon, Virginia, which might be fun to see except that with a parade start time of 8:00 p.m., there's no way we'd get there and spend any time without messing up Celeste's sleep something fierce. (Not to mention my and Evelin's sleep, considering that Celeste had a nice long wake-and-wail session — "Somebody play with MEEEEEEEEE!" — from one-something 'til two-something this morning.)
Sigh, maybe next year we'll have it a bit more together to do something. Or maybe the year after that ...
The one bit of pre-Lenten excess that I did indulge in today was finally ordering Evelin a new laptop. She's been using an old reliable Gateway Solo (running Windows 98SE) she bought as surplus from the university for a while now, but with the working from home part of the time she really needs something faster and more up-to-date; plus Dell had select models on sale with free shipping that ends on Ash Wednesday.
Now I just need to figure out about setting us up for DSL. And getting a more modern desktop for myself. And then setting up a wireless network. And. And. And.
