Jess doesn't have school today. I had forgotten about that when, earlier in the week, I had though I would have some time today to clean up and run errands.
Not that it matters too much. Saturday we are to be *spanked* with snow so I had Nate called everyone last night and cancel. They all want to do it next week instead, which puts our anniversary plans (if we had any at this point) in jeopardy. I guess we'll just see how it works out.
Nate is just so upset about having to cancel and keeps apologizing to me. I just laugh. He, being a fall baby, doesn't realize that when you are a January baby you get used to party cancellations. I think at least a third of them have been called off due to weather. This is something he has difficulty understanding.
This evening I will be at Jill's as we all try to finish up all last minute details.
I gave my stepmother her gift yesterday, as it was her birthday. She seemed to like it. Kari liked it as well, in fact I think I overheard her plotting to steal it.
They gave me a giftcard to Barnes & Noble, which I had partly cashed in last night. I bought my book group book for February, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, by Mark Haddon.
I bought Wicked, by Gregory Maguire, the other day. I thought I would most likely like it, after reading Mirror, Mirror. I started it last night, so far I have not been disappointed.
I'm still clueless as to what Nate and I will do for our anniversary. We thought maybe we would take in a local production, but nothing opens until mid February, so that was a bust. I can't seem to get him to even consider going up to Chicago, so that's out, and it too friggin' cold for any outdoor activities that I'd be up for.
I started my Ravenclaw scarf yesterday, only to realize that I do not like it. It's too big and a very boring knit. I frogged it. Just like me to make a big deal over it, and then abandon it completely.
