To-do list of the sleep-deprived
- Get more sleep.
- Go to Ikea and finally use big-ass gift card that's been sitting in the house unused for about 2 years.
- Take a long daytrip up to the shore, just me and the baby, to visit rentals and figure out where we're going to stay this summer.
- Renew dog license for Small Dog (who is allergic to leaf mold, we've recently discovered, and will be on antibiotics till all the fallen leaves are gone).
- Move contents from safe deposit box in old bank branch (where we haven't been since moving a couple of years ago) to new bank branch.
- Figure out where the hell the key to safe deposit box is.
- Decide what I'm going to cook for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm doing a small turkey, but I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet (haven't done a turkey in years, but on holidays past my birds have always turned out nice and juicy). Most of the side dishes are set in stone (stuffing, the ubiquitous green bean casserole), but I haven't figured out which sweet potato dish to make. Any suggestions? Nothing with an orange glaze--I always find those way too sweet.
- Continue making my way through my Netflix queue (currently in my house: Happy Endings, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Ocean's Twelve).
- Keep knocking things off my Christmas shopping list. I've already gotten some things for my parents. I think Angry Boy is ready for some games. Are there any games your kids play that don't drive you nuts when you have to play along? (I am a fan of CandyLand and Chutes & Ladders.) Has anyone actually played this game? It caught Angry Boy's eye.
