Groceries last night, $147. I think.
When San was here, she had a very small pile of stuff from my mom’s – socks, a book for me, and a stack of Calvin & Hobbes she picked up at a yard sale. They are scattered across the house, open here & there. Ron & I read them together over lunch & dinner, when not talking about work. Emma’s reading some out loud to me.
We also skipped down to Fredericton Tuesday night for a Twitter meetup. It was… okay. Hard to talk to new people when it’s so loud you can barely hear yourself think. We took Sarah with us and her friend mike showed up, so we sat & helped him eat his bucket o’ poutine. Then we went home. I said that counted for a date night for us, crazy partiers we are. At least I have a twitter sticker for my netbook, which is now almost completely covered.
Starting to think a little about Christmas too. Also, Emma said she wanted to skip Halloween this year. I don’t blame her – half the houses we ever went to seemed quite shocked people were knocking on their door, even houses with decorations. Too much work for too little return, might as well buy a bag of candy. Which, she decided, we probably don’t need anyway. Tho we do have a bit of decorations up inside.
I also am re-reading The Time Traveller’s Wife, lost in Henry & Clare.
