You are a good daughter, Kylie. I am sure your Mom appreciates all you do for her.

I am finally not feeling groggy after my procedure. Which is ironic because it is just about bedtime.

I made a gourmet dinner, did 3 loads of laundry (though I still have two loads to fold), cleaned up the kitchen and living room, and watched a movie with TB. It has been a very good day. Now I just hope I can sleep through the night!

It's a game of adjustments. SF adjusted better than Atlanta and Baltimore adjusted better than NE. Brady can only carry NE so far by himself.
Pretty cool brother vs brother in the Super Bowl.

interesting observation,pac. in the case of br, do you think it has been more a mental adjustment than a physical one?

oh yes, the brothers' bowl is gonna be awesome! that is a battle not to be missed! i may be in danger of rooting for one or the other brother rather than for my br team. (i can be fickle like that--always for the underdog)

Just finished emailing (after snitching) those really funny new posts on Today's Funny to various relatives.

Need to find my to-do list and go do something to cross off.

Addie, I hope you just love the new painting they're supposed to do today. Isn't it too cold to open the windows -- re the fumes?

Oh I don't know. If I was to rattle off what's' on my mind I'd say that Belichick is grasping at straws (Haynesworth, Ocho Cinco, Seau) trying to get back talent he either traded away or cut because he wouldn't pay them, or simply got old and retired. And the Patriots have lost a little something since losing their edge... Sony I believed it was called
I think Brady tries to hard to win it by himself, what they always accuse other quarterbacks of. And that's because NE just doesn't have a defense that can rattle other quarterbacks anymore. I think NE was lulled into a false sense of security the first half and it was Harbaugh's (sp?) full intent to spring the passing game on them the second half and mess up any adjustments they might have made, which appeared to be none.
But what do I know?

I know I will have just as much snow to clear in an hour or so that I cleared an hour ago...

The Ravens outplayed the Patriots in all three phases of the game. There were some key injuries that helped but they were outplayed.

Sunny here today but cold as.....

My bread-making glands are acting up so I have the beginnings of a couple of baguettes on their first rise. After I get them formed and ready for the second rise I'm going to make a couple of loaves of bacon-and-egg bread. I haven't made that in a while and today's just perfect to keep the house warm by having the oven on.

After I'm done with those breads I might do something else. I'll see how the time and day go.

I'm sitting here avoiding the inevitable run outside. I have some shopping to do, I SHOULD do a little exercise today, but I have ZERO motivation or desire. It went into the deep freeze yesterday. Down to -28C and I can see it is warmer now, only -13C but honestly, that still feels too cold for me right now. I tried to watch some Netflix, but the server glitched. Now I'm messing about here until I can motivate myself to get my bum off the couch!

I've been having problems with low blood pressure, have a call out to my cardiologist about cutting one med in half. I'm so lightheaded I'm afraid to drive.
