Up mid-morning and spent the day doing things around the house, mainly in preparation for our trip to Chicago (which starts tomorrow). While queenmomcat was out exercising, I balanced the checkbook and paid bills, started some laundry, and vacuumed the downstairs, much to the cat's dismay. I also did some dishes, and engaged in a bit of meal planning and grocery list arranging.
Early in the afternoon, queenmomcat and I went out grocery shopping. It was a quick trip, as we'll be out of town for several days and meals for the days we'll be in town include leftovers and things we already had in the freezer. After all that, we came home, had lunch, and then I dealt with my laundry and took a nap.
In the evening, I packed for our trip, including several ARCs that I need to finish sooner rather than later. (I didn't do any reading today, which is bad. I'm starting to fall behind again.) We had pesto pasta with leftover chicken for dinner, and afterwards I washed even more dishes, so now the kitchen counter is looking clear and tidy.
Off to bed soon. We have to be up early (for me) tomorrow to catch our train. I'm looking forward to this trip -- it'll be good to get out of this house and town for a while.
