MIT is occasional parking. I can park 12 times a month for $5 a day which is a bargain if you know anything about Boston/Cambridge parking. I wasn't very good about keeping track this month (until Thursday) and I overshot my 12 times. I used to keep track of my period; now I keep track of my parking.

Today I made myself this sign for my front door. I've put a sign on the front door before reminding me to turn off the stove (after leaving chili cooking while I drove to MAINE--I was gone about 6 hours...that story will have to be a blog post someday) but after today's incident I knew it was time for another reminder.
I'm just keeping it real by blogging about this crap in my life. And for all you young folks out there, this too will be your life someday.
My friend Shirley's sister recently opened a candle shop -- Westborough Wicks. I'd been wanting to check it out so on Saturday after the baptism(s) I met up with Shirley and we went to the shop. It's such a cool place -- I love the decor and all the nifty things for sale (fabric gift bags, felted items, note cards, AND candles, of course). I bought a Macintosh candle (my fave). And I bought a few cards designed by this woman and I just love them. I know some of my blog readers (you know who you are!) live near Westborough so go check out Westborough Wicks!

When we were kids we went to Olvera Street at Christmastime. There was an inebriated man hovering around the nativity scene yelling, "I'm the Grandpa! I'm the Grandpa!" That's John (not the inebriated part but the Grandpa part). As of yesterday, he's a Grandpa. And I know he'll be a great one. Congratulations to Emily and Lucas!

I stopped in Florida to buy some fruit and then took some photos of the produce and signs. The proprietor yelled, "I have something in my van you can take a picture of". Yikes. That sounded kind of dicey. I was a bit nervous (and inching toward my car) when he walked back carrying that dog.

I called you Thursday to see about getting a replacement card quickly. You said you could "over night" one to me. I gave you my work address since UPS won't leave packages at home without a live signature (muy annoying). You said if I didn't get it Friday, I'd get it Saturday or Monday. I got it today. Um. That's not over night.
