Road trips and the expense incurred by impulse
I succumbed yet again to the temptation of spending money on books. I earn money by books, I loose money buy(sic) books.
After a long sleep-in and a relaxing morning where I had another really good sit/think fest, yet this time there was more ‘God’ related stuff involved an interesting tour amongst the start of Proverbs, I found myself having to drop Emma (Emily’s friend) home. Now she really doesn’t live that far away but as I was ‘on the road’ I figured I’d just drive the extra however many km’s to Nunnawadding while the 20% sale was still on at Word.
Foolish girl. I was going to stay home today.
Paul D called me sometime during then ‘for a chat’ which was quite random. We are having a rather large gush meetup tomorrow which shall be nothing short of interesting. I will see him, Jas and many others I dare say.
So I bought far too many books again. A very interesting one on ‘Mass Culture: eucharist and mission in a post-modern world’, some book by Max Lucado, some Youth Min one, One on online stuff (as it was less than $5 and erm I was being impulsive) and The Five Love Languages of Singles as someone – I think it was you Tony, said it was really good.
Anyway. I think the whole trip was a cover up to just get out of the house for a while – not that I have been at all frustrated with anyone today, positively the opposite.
How very stupid of me. I now have books enough to last me months – there’s still some I haven’t read from last time…
