On Friday, I woke up early to go to the housing office and get things taken care of for work. Afterward, I went online and ordered my books. I was amazed at the deals I got. If I would have been able to get them all used from the bookstore (which wouldn't have been possible anyway), they would have cost $140. As it stands, I got the same amount of books from Amazon for only $90. Not too shabby, eh?

In the afternoon, I help Joe set up a TV stand. It's nice to have something in the living room besides ethernet cables now. :)

I woke up on Saturday about nine, but forced myself to get back to sleep. I got back up around eleven and did a bit of laundry and reading. That night, I went to Rome's happening shin-dig and had a nice time. Since I'm not drinking at the moment, I picked up a bottle of sparkling white grape juice. Not a good idea. It was so sickly sweet that it upset my stomach. Oh well, worth a try I suppose. :)

On Sunday, I did a bit of reading late in the morning. John called about one and we talked for an hour. I know it's nothing new, but it still amazes me to be able to speak with someone half-way around the world, just like when I would call Mom from Scotland. Anyway, we had a good chat. :)

That afternoon, I went to Wal-Mart to look for a goldfish. I've always wanted one, and I figured now was as good of a time as any to get one. After much thought, I've decided to wait until after Labor Day to get one. But I'll be sure to post a picture when I do!
