I'm at the law school today doing my volunteer work by learning the administrator side of the new-to-me career services management system. It's not all that complicated especially since I'm not doing a lot of the serious updating, and so I really wish I had my iPod to help keep me going. I think that my plan yesterday of not really eating much until Mom's birthday dinner complete with cake was not necessarily a good one. I'm now rather tired and run down. And to top it all off, I'm following the same plan again today since there's cake and ice cream at 4.00 and then family dinner at Fogo de Chao at 5.45. Sometimes I'm not the brightest crayon in the box. Maybe some caffeine will help.
