(no subject)

Got to see friends who came into town yesterday and had a great time, during which I ate an entire pizza. But it was a really good pizza. We also got our tax stuff ready, and I cleaned out and rearranged some filing cabinets. I realized I hadn't gone through and gotten rid of old bank and credit card receipts since 2007. Yes, that would be about when stress ate my life. But I'm mostly caught up and now have places to keep stuff I actually need.

I'm still hoping my stress cough will go away eventually, like hopefully before I die.
