I went out for a little retail therapy today. Spent a little too much money, but it was nice to splurge a little bit on myself. Yeah, and the kid too, she got some clothes. But she needed them.
I got for me:
The Annotated Brother's Grimm. Needed this for my Nanowrimo.
Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach. Not sure I'm quite ready to read this at this moment in life, but I enjoyed her book Stiff, so I'll save it for when I am.
I also got a start on my Christmas shopping. We got Ellie an easel with a chalk board and a dry erase/magnetic board. My friend has one for her girls and Ellie loves it. It was on sale too! I meant to get me some clothes, but just ran out of $$$. Damn house payments too the depths of a fiery hell!
I'm still not quite ready to talk about Mama. It was sudden, unexpected and I'm still working through a lot of it in my head and my heart. I know I'm going to be using this blog to work through a lot of it, but not quite yet.
