I woke up around 7:00 this morning. Milly wasn’t fussing, but she was awake and I didn’t know what time it was, so I got on up. Milly and I talked to Uncle Roy for a bit, and when I heard my parents I took Milly to see them. Since Mom got in late last night she didn’t get to see Milly. She didn’t get to see anyone, come to think of it. I think I ended up going to sleep about 15 minutes before she and my dad got back to the house.
As I noticed last night, there was snow on the ground, probably a couple inches. Amanda and I took Milly out to check it out, but she wasn’t really into it. I got a few pictures and a little bit of video, but nothing monumental.
We mostly just hung around for a good part of the day. Milly had her first taste of eggs, which she didn’t seem to mind too much. I tried to install a printer on Uncle Roy’s laptop and drew and colored a picture of one of Jackson’s toys in Photoshop. I’d shown him a little bit about how to use it yesterday, which he seemed to enjoy. I wish they’d come out with a new MarioPaint, because the basics I learned playing with that were the basis for a lot of what I taught myself with Photoshop.
Duke hosted Maryland today. Not only was it Coach K’s 1oooth game, and not only was it his birthday, but it was also a game to determine the #1 spot in the ACC. The Terps were second but if they won they’d take Duke’s #1 spot.
The game started and Duke rebounded a Maryland attempt then Jon Scheyer made a three. Then the power went out. It came back on, but the satellite was taking forever to sync back up. Then the power went out again. Not only did it interrupt my game, but both laptops that were in use (mine, with Amanda on it, and Uncle Roy on his) died. Dad and Josh were doing some bathroom work (they ended up pretty much completely stripping out the bathroom at the top of the stairs) and had to cut the power for some reason while they were draining the water. Or something like that.
Once the power came back on the satellite took forever to reboot again, so I watched some of the game online until the TV was ready.
It was a great game. Duke won by 21 and Brian Zoubek had his best game ever with 16 points and 17 rebounds! Dude was a beast today.
In other basketball news, Carolina beat NC State in a game to determine who would reside in the cellar of the ACC. Carolina, sadly, was able to stop their losing streak. I watched UK beat Tennessee just a little bit ago. It was tight until the end of the game when I guess the Wildcats decided they were tired of trading buckets.
We played some MarioKart for a bit then Amanda, Milly and I left just before 5:00. The trip was pretty uneventful aside from the fact that I drove (even though I drove up as well, and we usually trade off duties) and Milly cried most of the last 15 miles or so of the trip. She seemed to just be tired of being in the car. She was also distracted while eating and didn’t go to bed too easily.
Amanda and I watched The Office and 30 Rock before she went to bed, then I watched an episode of Smallville. The next one features the Justice Society. I’d have gone ahead and watched it, but it’s a two hour one I think, and I remembered that Kentucky and Tennessee were playing.
The Revills, by the way, got two new dogs today. They were just going to get one but they decided they liked two of them. Lucy and Maxine are their names. As you may recall, they recently lost two dogs.
