Survived a slightly disappointing weekend – lost a lot of time driving in bad weather. DC seems so close sometimes, but when there’s traffic or bad weather it seems like it’s painfully far away. The Super Bowl made me very grouchy (and I swore a lot), even though I successfully managed to make fried cheese-stuffed jalapenos and a chocolate cake. I failed to take pictures of either, sadly, so you’ll have to take my word for it.

Work continues to be extremely busy. Every time I finish one task, I end up with two more, with no sign of respite. I feel like a student, already dreaming of summer break.
