Since my last post, Laurel got over her stomach bug, got mad that her new camera does not have an LCD preview screen, and received a lot of new clothes, toys and a Tattered Cover gift card for Christmas. I started coming down with a cold (most of my family recently or currently have colds), laid out a 40-page event program for my sister, and really, really missed vogonpoet.
We went down to Cherry Creek today to use our collective Tattered Cover gift cards, hit Kazoo & Company where Laurel got a bunch of neat small toys and I acquired a "beep beep car" (the car pictured in my travel icon), had lunch at Panera and watched people skating on the ice rink, then wandered into the mall to see the Narnia movie exhibit.
In the evening, I saw saarlander and his lovely wife for the first time in *cough* a few years. We really should see each other more often now that we live on the same continent again. (:
We haven't made firm plans for tomorrow yet, but I hope Evergreen Lake is open so we can take Laurel skating and we have tentative plans to see Laurel's Grandma Betty (Himself's mother) late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
I talked to Biko a few times when Vogon and I were on the phone today and probably sounded quite silly talking cat, but she mowed back at me. It's kind of odd to be more homesick for a place I've lived just shy of two years than for my parents' home in Evergreen where I lived (non-continuously) for roughly ten years, but Vogon's right that my home isn't there anymore. I'll have to return when it's warmer to get all the stuff I have stored here dealt with and off to the appropriate places.
