In my dream last night "the Catastrophenomonists warned of danger!" Thanks a lot brain.rethought
joined us for dinner on Wednesday. Delicious potato soup was had along with the realization that our living room is tiny, as in miniscule. Major people hosting (i.e. more than 2 or 3 people) will have to be put off until warmer weather when we can spill out into the back yard. slownewsday
, Christmas will be fun, really. Though Sara and I will be not-so-subtlely passive aggressive to each other until we retire to our bedroom to pretend no one can hear us scream at each other, you guys will be responsible for the various drinking disfunctionalities (we're out of practice what with the kiddo) and my sister can scream obscenities at all of us as she flees the house into the cold Scottish winter. Woo! (Also where did you guys find out about plantable Christmas trees?)
Rona is starting school with a couple of pre-visits next week and then for reals the following week on Tues., Wed., Thurs. from 1-5ish. As much as I might have complained that her naptime was not regular nor predictable to make it consistently usable work time I didn't want her to be going so soon (we though December was when they would have an opening for her). When we went yesterday for a little visit to make sure she might like it she declared from outside the door upon spying the little ones playing in the center's piazza, "Look, friends for me!" So as much as I might end up missing her it's for the best.
Also on the Rona front she looked up at me today and declared "Ring ring, banana phone."
