The Battle Continues

Enough progress has been made on the dish situation that I didn't have to eat my breakfast cereal out of a measuring cup or stir my tea with a fork. The vacuuming robot has its battery charged, so it may be tasked with some cleaning the next time I'm out of the house. The trash went out today. It's been almost a month since I've done laundry. Can't win them all.

Today I also went to office hours for computer science and spent about 20 minutes talking to the non-scary TA (who has successfully defended his dissertation) getting strategy tips on the assignment. I still only have about a half-dozen lines of code (more if you count the header file in which I #include just about every header known to man), but at least I now feel like I have a plan. Or, at the very least, I can fill a sheet of paper with pictures of boxes connected by arrows.

Threatening to stall progress on both the housework and the homework is the call of the outlet mall. Both the Gap Outlet and the Banana Republic Outlet sent me postcards offering me 25% off my purchase of over $100. This might be my solution to the laundry situation.
