mom-in-law visit

Thanks to those of you in Blatherchat who sympathised with my pot-burning experiences...I found it a great comfort. I've burned many things since I got on the web, including a pot of home-made soup I made for Allison a while back. We ended up ordering in pizza instead. =:-O And Rand still teases me because I once referred to "cooking" tunafish sandwiches for him and Paul Kwinn when they were visiting.
My mother-in-law visited last night, which was fun. She asked me if we could possibly do some websurfing, and of course you know how much I hated THAT idea. :-) My mil does a lot of swimming (she swam in the Olympics at Melbourne in the fifties!) and wanted to look up some training information. We checked out SwimInfo among other places. Afterwards we watched Third Rock From The Sun...though I don't watch a lot of tv, I really enjoy that show. :-) I remember thinking it was a stupid idea, though, when I first heard about the series.
UT practice tonight...we'll probably be going over stuff for Confusion.
Looks like the Canadian postal strike is ending tonight at midnight! Though the postal workers are being called back against their will...some are threatening to purposefully misdirect mail to the wrong locations.
