05:31 pm: At least I didn't have to work
I had planned to get up extra early this morning to take care of chores around the house before it started to heat up.

That plan went out the window when I stood up and realized that the light sniffling that had been bothering me since the girls left had turned into woozy-headedness. I did manage to get some laundry and dishes done, but mostly I just napped.

One thing I forgot to mention from my grocery shopping trip yesterday...while I was at the store, I saw a sign that there's a nationwide shortage of agar because they can't keep up with the sudden rise in demand. I was rather amused. They really take their seasonal foods seriously here.

Hope you'll feel better soon, a fuzzed-up head just sucks. ^^;;

I'm curious, this agar thing...is it the stuff they use to make jelly/jello? Hard, long, crinkly, white/almost transparent stuff? (I hope that came out right...)

No, Jell-O is made from gelatin, which is an animal product. Agar is from seaweed.

It's what scientists use to grow things in Petri dishes.

Hard, long, crinkly, white/almost transparent stuff?

It's sometimes sold in that form. It also comes as a white powder.
