going home soon

I am so very excited about Thanksgiving break. Today, I was talking to Mom on the phone. She was next door at my uncle's house. She, Dad, Sissy, Kathryn, and Day were there visiting. There was lots of laughing, and I wish I had've been there. I'm not sure why I wasn't. I didn't really have all that much to do this weekend, and I didn't even stay at work for an hour. Another lab supervisor came in and offered to work. He seemed to really need the hours, so I let him. Anyway, I could've gone home, but my reasoning was that it's too close to Thanksgiving break. I'm going home on Tuesday, and I thought that'd be too small of a gap. Small, indeed, it would be, but what's the use in all that logic when the simple truth is that I'd been much happier there than here. Oh, well. I'll be home before I know it.

"My own plans are made. While I can, I sail east in the Dawn
Treader. When she fails me, I paddle east in my coracle. When
she sinks, I shall swim east with my four paws. And when I can swim no
longer, if I have not reached Aslan's country or shot over the edge of the world
in some vast cataract, I shall sink with my nose to the sunrise and Peepiceek
will be head of the talking mice in Narnia."

Reepicheep, from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
