Woke up this morning to the sound of a squirrel scolding away. Laid there, not fully awake, and suddenly realized, “A squirrel?! I’M AT HOME!!!! I just think I’m at school; I’ve been dreaming, and I’m really at home!!!” I was getting quite excited, and then suddenly the thought struck me, “Hmm…if that’s the squirrel in my back yard and I’m at home, that means I’m not in the east, and at school, and I’m going to miss Sanderly.” Hmm. Sobering thought. Then I woke up all the way and realized I WAS at school and Sanderly was sleeping in the bed right above me. And I was happy. Because life is just about perfect right now. I’m still at school with my friends, but I have no homework, and Sanderly is visiting, and home is within sight. Life is good!
We were playing Dutch Blitz earlier today. We’ve had this joke for a while — “When you’re stressed, eat Twix!” (my favorite chocolate bar). Then today Sanderly was like, “Hey, if you’re stressed, let ME eat your Twix for you!” So we shared my Twix bar!
Went for a walk this evening…ended up almost to Blipville, then decided to go the last 5 minutes and touch the bridge just to be able to say we did it! So a 20 minute walked turned into an almost 2 hour walk. But it was good. Very enjoyable. We talked and talked and talked and solved all the world’s problems except our own. Our problems are too complicated and there are no answers. Other than “time” perhaps! 😉
