my mom has been in bolivia – getting ready for the whole family to visit in about six weeks, did i tell you all about this yet? – for the past three weeks and after thanksgiving she’s heading back again. in the meantime, i’m taking care of the family house and though it’s been great to have so much free time to myself, it’s also really hard being in this big house all alone, especially one with so many memories.


home alone, and it’s way too indulgent to heat this enormous house just for me and the cats, so hoodies and jackets and thick socks plus lots of hot showers = almost warm me.
