Nerd Porn (Now with disclaimer!)

Jack stood up this morning! He's been pulling himself up onto his knees for a couple weeks, and today he pulled himself all the way up on his feet, about three times in a row. Of course my dumb ass was too busy squealing and calling my mom to take pictures, but I will have some soon, I know.

In other news, the local used bookstore that I've been patronizing since it opened five years ago, is closing at the end of the month.* It really makes me sad, because I've actually built up a history with the owner Cathy, and she's always been incredibly kind to me. She's given me free books on my birthday, she's given Joe books and toys to Caleb. She's watched me through the two real relationships I've been in during that time, and has been if not a friend, then someone I hold pretty dear. Plus, did I mention the free books?

We went over this morning and got what would have easily been over $100 worth of books at her usual prices, for just over $25. Not to mention the toy she gave Caleb, the book she gave Joe and the discount she gave me. I am really, really going to miss this store. She's selling her bookcases too, so I'm thinking we'll go back in a week or two and pick one up, because if I didn't need it before today I really do now.

*The owner has decided to go into a different business, and is not being put out of business due to lack of sales.
