It's that time of spring again... the superbowl is over and the "winter sport" set is gearing up for more outdoorsy things. Like Paintball. A bunch of people running around with "toys" playing a grownup version of the same games we played as children. Instead of cap guns, paint guns. It's a wonderful thing. Another wonderful product of the Internet age are the paintball forums that bring together people of many backgrounds who share the same interests. If paintball chat is what you're looking for, rest assured that you can find it here. Everything, from what's new in the news, to supplies, gear, paint, dyes, companies... your favorite teams. Your favorite places and methods to play. So many options.
Kids- still sick. Me- still sick. Monday- not the best, but I've certainly had worse. The buses were not delayed this morning despite the fog, and I'm pleased. While she's sick, she's not "sick" enough to require staying home. None of us are. No, this is that annoying sort of sick that's just enough to make you feel off and slightly miserable. Non-infectious, unless you count the grumpiness.

Maybe I'll get some cleaning done today. I've had it on my to-do list for the past week, but somehow that list keeps getting pared back to the minimum I need to do to keep the place functioning. Isn't that the way of it?

Need to get the place clean, though. Toys picked up, laundry done, trash taken out, house aired. Lord willing the weather will be warm enough to open windows this afternoon. The air outside isn't great right now, but it might just be better than the air inside.

Looking forward to living somewhere I don't have to weigh that, even if I don't want to move. I grew up in a place where I didn't have to worry about the air quality outside; it was clean enough to breathe even if the humidity wasn't always great. Here the humidity is next to nothing, but the other crap floating in it is hell on the lungs.
