There’s a used bookstore in Falls Church that John swore we had been to before, but I didn’t remember ever going. We went yesterday afternoon. It’s a good one. For me, anyway. They have a HUGE (for used bookstores, anyway) science fiction/fantasy section, and I remembered my list. 🙂 So I got a lot of books. Then I walked around a corner into a little nook lined floor to ceiling with hardcover books (I think it may have originally been a closet – oh yeah, the store is a little one-story house) and suddenly remembered standing in that exact spot with John years ago. So John was right. I’ve been there before.
The rest of the day was lovely. I don’t think we did anything we didn’t want to do. Well, I went to the grocery store, but it was while John was working on his car. And going to Bloom never takes long.
Roxy was good all weekend (no seizures – yay!), but I’m expecting some misbehavior from both dogs tonight. It’s going to be a very long day, for all of us. I’m at work early so I can leave early to get home and take care of the dogs. I’ll be home maybe an hour (maybe a little more), but then I have to come back to the office because we have band rehearsal tonight. John will be missing rehearsal because he has to go to class. I won’t get home until 9:30 at the earliest, and he’ll be another hour after that. Roxy and Riley tend to misbehave when we go back out. Nothing major, usually. They steal things off the countertops. Bread, bags of coffee beans, plastic containers, whatever. They don’t even eat them. Just steal them.
Anyway, I’m trying to be positive about today. It’s a little hard.
