Today is an unhappy memory day and I am trying to keep myself busy so I don't think about it. So what's up at chez Bintie these days?
1) Discovered that the stovetop can easily hold an entire can of boiled-over tomato soup. Lesson learned: don't go check your mail when there's milk on the stove.
2) Foley is starting daycare soon. Oh what a yuppie I have turned out to be, but honestly this separation anxiety is very bad for all three of us and we have to do something.
3) How many more huge snowfalls are we going to have? It's nice that nature is giving me plenty of exercise but enough already!
4) I've been reading Jane Austen novels and watching the corresponding movies on PBS during their Jane Austen festival. We started with Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, and now I'm working on Mansfield Park. Unfortunately, MP is much longer and much less interesting. A budding romance between a painfully shy girl and a humorless clergyman? I find myself rooting for the gambler and the golddigger instead.
