Home and home

I went home this weekend to see my family and get my car. Oh goodness. My family. They surprised me by bringing my older sister - I hadn't seen her since Easter! Everybody got along and there was good food and I ATE and I don't hate myself for it.

Now I'm home in D.C. (two homes, eh?) and there is a shiny car in the parking lot that is mine (well, after we get it registered). On the drive back I read The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Cheesy, yes I know. But I really think it helped. I'm setting goals. I'm taking action. I am going to be a good teacher, a good wife-to-be, and a good person. I think.

I'm just trying to like myself, regardless of what anyone else thinks of me. If you've never done it, it's harder than you might imagine.

I know, I've never been able to do it.

You already are a good person, and I think you're a good teacher too. I can't speak to your wife-to-be abilities, but I'm sure you're good at that too!

if you want to feel better about being yourself, watch little miss sunshine

I missed you SO MUCH. Now that we both have cars, we can each drive halfway and hang out in Ass End Of Nowhere, West Virginia. Or Pennsylvania. And some day I will come to DC and visit the Smithsonian! I mean, you. Visit you. Yeah. ;)
