This morning, I had hoped to blog more substantially but I encountered two problems – I left my power cord for my laptop at Dave’s house and I can’t stop unpacking boxes. I feel a fairly obsessive need to get the cardboard out of my house, so that is what I have been doing since 6:30am, unpacking boxes. Imagine my joy at finding my USB cord for my printer or seeing Asher’s face stare up at me from Potok’s classic. It’s like I’m getting the things I own back as gifts. . . . it’s great.

Hope you all get gifts in the things you already own today, too.
