21 November 2009

home thoughts.

1. I sit in the biggest mess left by myself for myself pre-vacation.

2. The sight of Paula Deen and/or Ruby makes me almost burst into tears for Savannah.

3. Josh and Kristen are moving in today, that's happy.

4. Robert's out surfing/helping move and being away from him is really weird.

5. I will blog soon about Savannah...all the while wishing I could live last week over and over and over and over and over again.

Reading "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens. Robert's been a Dickens fan for a long time (hence his yearly reading of 'A Christmas Carol') but this is my first crack at the classic. And it's ridiculously good.

"I am indebted for a belief I religiously entertained that they had been born on their backs with their hands in their trousers pockets, and had never taken them out in this state of existence." (on the working class)

"That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link of one memorable day."
