It iced today, so I stayed inside. Actually I did bring the compost pail out, and got rained/sleeted/snowed on for my trouble. So I decided to skip grocery shopping because freezing rain is one driving condition that scares me, and just stay home. Luckily, Emma is signed up for one of her two school lunches a month, so I don't have to worry that we're out of oranges and yogurts.
At one point this afternoon, after reading on the couch for a while, I started craving smarties.
Luckily Rob wandered in a few minutes later, and was able to roust some up for me --from Emma's container of left-over Halloween candy. Smarties don't go bad. He also found a whole bag of sweet-tarts, which we all agreed are really without merit, and threw away.
Then, Emma needed a shower, and Rob and I had at least a half-hour of uninterrupted conversation! Quite a bonus on a Sunday afternoon. Between Monday-night dinners each week, and a few other random moments of conversation, I feel like Rob and I are communicating so much more this semester. Things weren't bad before, but this is better.
Now it's dark and I'm on my last cup of coffee. Popcorn and wine for dinner later, I think, to counteract the caffeine :-)
