Dad would have to be gone off to work too. I was going to have him read this. Although it probably wouldn't do a tremendous amount, it'd help at least a little. I still stand by that money's not as tight as they'd have us think though, or they wouldn't be taking such a carefree attitude with Naomi (among other things).
Oh, and as for Phantom Hourglass progress... beat the first dungeon. That's about it so far.
Still no sign of Mom though, so I might as well assume they've already gone. I suppose I should at least be happy that it's cold out today, however. Perhaps it'll be like this from now on <3
