And I've been watching movies. Books were starting to overwhelm me, I guess? Who am I, all of a sudden? I'm sure I'll get back into it soon enough. Anyway, Joshua and I watched Ramona and Beezus the other night, as well as Despicable Me (a veritable marathon of feel-goodery, there), and it was delightful. I loved the Ramona books as a kid. And the movie was just wonderful. And, oh, how I cried. Not that that means much. I cry at everything.
|how cool is this frame? [found here] i need to learn how make these. |
I'm home in Louisville right now, by the way. It's great. Other than being away from Joshua, that is. But I get to see my parents and grandmother and friends and some extended family, too, this week. Oh. It will be so good for my soul. Living away from my hometown is both liberating and frustrating. I like having my own life, being totally independent (at least, of my parents), and working and making my own friends, etc. But I miss my family. Gah! It's not like I'm college anymore, where you sort of prove who you are to yourself by being away from home. That's how it was for me, and it was the right move to go out-of-state, but I'm past that now, you know? I have proof of my maturity. Or whatever. I just want to be able to have lunch with my mom every once in a while.
Thus, a three-and-a-half-day trip to Louisville. Go Cards!
I brought Oliver, too, which is kind of hilarious. How often do you see cats chilling in a passing car, like you would a dog? We travel with our cats a lot, and I like to think that others get a kick out of it. Of course, it's a lot easier to let cats roam free in the car when there are two of us. Since it was only me today, poor Olly Bear had to stay in the carrier.
I think he's over it now, though. :)
