One down, many to go

Finished the first of three encyclopedia articles I’ve promised for March first. It comes in exactly at the maximum word count. Go me! Now I can happily turn to the seminar paper I’ll present to the department in a week and a half. Ack! A week and a half! Thank goodness the interlibrary loans are coming in at a good pace.

One of eldest’s teachers phoned today to inform me of some altercations and misbehaviours on eldest’s part. She took exception to some boys spoiling the play of her group and started shoving them away when the teachers wouldn’t assist. Shoving back, of course, ensued. Two recesses were forfeit for both, as punishment, and a talking-to followed at home.

I spent an obscene amount of money, this morning, on two T-fal pots. Having had a slew of long-abused Corelle pots crack over the past year, I figured the stainless steel was a good investment. Let’s hope I’m correct, there, or I will feel less brilliant. At least they look very smart.

    I’ve spent all week not getting ANYTHING finished, dammit. I think I may just hate you now.

    Ah, never mind. You do rock!

    They are a good investment. I myself moved from my overused (abused) “Visions” pots and pans to stainless steel a few years ago and I don’t regret it one bit.

    good job finishing your papers!!!! You do indeed rock!!! I have Le Crueset and they are lovely pots. Work beautifully, clean beautifully.

    I picked up some stainless steel pots at Ikea a few years back, and they are the best pots I’ve ever had. They’re standing up really well. Go Ikea. ;)

    good cookware is crucial. And your productivity/energy is inspiring!

    WHen I get a REal Job ™, I very much hope to also get some decent cookware. I had a set of the classic copper-bottom Revere Ware when I was in grad school and marriage, but we gave it to the child when she moved out. X really loved most of the cookware he bought to replace it, so I took the odd pieces (but good ones) and my cast iron, and bought one really good nonstick frying pan. One neat thing is that some of the big discount chains, like Ross and Marshall’s, have awesome kitchen sections, where you can get the really pricey stuff for about half.
