I can deal, though, since I now have flexibility in my morning. I can, if need arises, take my shower after the kids go to school, and still be on time, more or less. Less today, because I had to drop off the cable box at the cable company.
It's tough for the kids, though.
All in all, it was a sucky weekend. Friday my favorite cat died, Saturday I was working on my bike, bruised and scraped my hand removing the starter clutch, and realized I needed more parts. Sunday we took MIL for about four hours, and I ended up pushing her around the mall for a while while Mrs. Ha shopped.
I did see the Apple Store in the mall, but I didn't dare go in. I couldn't explain why to MIL either, how can you explain the difference in aura between Apple and PC to a complete computer illiterate?
Boy, fall is sure in the air, it's getting colder out.
I finished my first book on Nelson last week, Nelson's Trafalgar : The Battle That Changed the World . It was good, and related the hazards that seaman faced back in the Napoleonic age, wooden ships and iron men indeed. Adkins presents a good case that it wa Trafalgar that made England the globe spanning pre-eminent empire it was. S, UKian sorts, is Nelson still revered over there, like Washington and Lincoln are here? Do you get a bank holiday for him, can you buy sheets, cars and washing machines for good prices during the Nelson day sales? Are you exhorted to do your duty and come on down and buy a Rover for low, low prices with low interest rates?
