First, Nate is finishing up his semester. Like probably this week he will turn in his last assignments. Then he only has two semesters left! Well, we have to confirm that with an advisor but that is what it looks like. So if we're correct on what classes he still needs, he will be able to take the summer off from schoolwork! That makes for a happy student and a happy wife.

Anyway, I was Googling him and found that there was a book about him published in the 1930s. It's actually his testimony, recorded by his wife and two daughters. There are a couple of copies in two libraries in Washington state, and then I found one available at abebooks.com for $8. So I bought it, and it immediately said it was no longer available at abebooks, so I must have bought their only copy. It's a first edition. The cover is purple velvet (some sun fading) and the title is gold stamped letters. It's only 40 pages long, and it is written in first person (from Robert Warner) about his ministry in the Methodist Episcopal Church in the Northwest—Washington and Idaho and such. He preached on circuits, traveling around to various cities for revivals.

I finished reading Jim Gaffigan's book, Dad Is Fat, which is hilarious. We also got the audiobook for free with a free trial at audible.com. I read the book on Kindle. It's a fast read. It's about his family who lives in a two-bedroom apartment in New York. Five kids. He says that thanks to his [very fertile] wife, they have an open-door policy—which basically means that at any time in the night, any of their children is welcome to come into their room and pee in their bed. haha This book is probably funnier for parents but we were cracking up too.
Just a few more days until I fly back to Kansas to spend some time in Manhattan with Jenn and then swing through Burlington and then to Wichita to meet up with Nate for a wedding. This trip will be the first time I've rented a car! I'm finally old enough! I'll fly out Tuesday night, and Nate will fly out Friday afternoon. The wedding is Saturday, and we have Monday off for Memorial Day so we'll fly back Monday morning. Can't wait.
