I went to bed last night around 9:15 with a pounding headache. And then Corinne was up for ~3 hours in the middle of the night. I was sleeping poorly already, so that really didn't help. So I'm pretty tired today.

A package from Mom arrived yesterday containing some packs of Skittles, some microwavable popcorn, a container of sugar cookies, and some masks she made. I'll try to get a picture of all of us wearing our masks at some point.

Not much else going on. The weather was supposed to become sunny this week, but it's still been mostly cloudy and rainy. Now the nice weather is scheduled for the weekend.
