So we're not in Japan right now, but things are back on kilter, I think. Silver lining: now that we're going in January, we have time to get Robb a passport and take him with us.

Didn't have much Christmas, though we did visit with the Nevilles (and Wumpf and Bryree & Marty) on Christmas evening. And then Saturday I went to zalena's open house, and on Sunday we went up to John & Elizabeth's. So that was all pretty good consolation. Much philosophical-type conversation was had, which is always enjoyable.

I have been reading quite a lot of fiction, mostly Bujold. Well, and a hefty pile of fanfic.

House-buying is weird. A couple hundred bucks is a lot when it comes out of my pocket, but ten times that is a negligible amount to add to the mortgage.

I found the experience of homebuying very odd, but actually, the experience that I find even more unnerving is renovation, where suddenly finding oneself spending thousands of dollars to make things that were working just fine but could be much better starts to get followed up with spending thousands of dollars making the new, better, things that are replacing the old, somewhat annoying, things be a little nicer still.

[These sentences are short. That sentence is long. I could make it short. I'm not going to. It pleases me.]

See? See? If you hadn't let your passport expire, then Robb wouldn't have gotten to go. The Universe provides, my friend. I'm glad you served as an example of that, because my life sure ain't.

So what fanfic are you reading?

Sweet! Glad to hear something good comes from the annoying situation.

Homebuying is definitely weird, but I can say it was much easier the second time we did it. Also: this is a good time to learn from other people's mistakes.
