I was dealing pretty well with the prospect of Larry's being away for the week (and really, it's only 6 days, so if I did complain, Mary Alice would have to call me a wimp - her husband is away for 6 months). Where was I? Oh, yes - so I was all fine and dandy with his deserting me again until I discovered that he had been perusing this website prior to his departure. That's right - Larry was researching where to find the best beer in his destination city. Tough trip, eh?
I sense an online yarn purchase or two in my immediate future.
I picked up a computer chair last week at a yard sale - the basic kind, with wheels and a little lever to move the seat up and down. Only 10 dollars! When I brought it home, you would have thought I had given my youngest 3 kids a trip to Disneyworld - they were having that much fun with it. Hours of fun. I didn't think I was depriving them that much.
Anyone who wants to hear an excellent explanation of the economic crisis (as opposed to the drivel I type here), listen to this episode from This American Life. [Edited to add: here's a shorter version that sums it up.] Even you NPR haters should check it out (oh, I know you're out there, although it's beyond me how anyone can enjoy a Saturday without hearing Scott Simon's voice on Weekend Edition)...
