3. I know--after the excitement of the last few weeks, I feel a little
let-down and empty right now. No important votes to watch--no speeches! It's going to be a long couple of weeks.

5. On the bright side, you now have the time to

  • clean your house
  • change your wardrobe over to spring/summer wear
  • go grocery shopping
  • take a day off and go to the museum
  • detail your car
  • work on your taxes and figure out how many 500-lb Mk-82 bombs you bought1 last year
