tired out of my mind but have a few things to say before bed:
(1) the CUBBIES WON! we beat the Braves in Atlanta in Game 1 of the playoff series. tomorrow we play them again at Atlanta, and friday they come to Wrigley. i can't imagine the Cubbies losing at Wrigley.
(2) the beef stew turned out well. slow cookers are amazing.
(3) i think i broke my hairdryer. it's stuck on the cold setting, which while admittedly better for the quality of my hair is far worse for getting it actually dry. my head might freeze before it dries at this rate.
