i'm sitting in my father's sun room right now.the fact that my father has a sun room,
and a formal dining room + living room, great room, laundry room, 4 bathrooms,
1st floor master, 4 spare bedrooms, & a full finished basement (with a kitchen)
that's bigger than my entire apartment,
when he raised us in a tiny 3 bedroom/1 bath working class house
with a dishwasher that never worked
makes being here a little strange + horrible.
but also kind of nice.
i mean, the sea green couch is very comfy.
and the leaves are turning.
and the skylights show drifting white clouds on a gray sky.
so i'm trying to work past the weirdness,
past the fire engine red walls and plantation blinds,
and enjoy watching malcolm in the middle in my PJs
while waiting for my big brother to wake up so we can make coffee
and play mario kart and eat cold pizza all morning.
in case you couldn't tell i'm home for the weekend.
so i thought since i'm feeling like a traveler,
just me + my cat and five suitcases for three days,
i'd put together some photos i've captured with my phone over the last few weeks.
the week since i've posted has been whirlwind of studying,
getting together with a good friend, surviving on luna bars + diet snapple,
just trying to stay on top of my schoolwork,
and hockey games,
and new episodes of my favorite TV shows,
because i have my proprieties straight.
what's your week been like?
