Another thing that I did while I was home for Christmas was to read all of the Calvin and Hobbes collections in the house.

1. Man oh man, was Calvin and Hobbes a good fucking comic strip. I remember there was this one where he goes to the doctor, and he's like, "what's that?" and the doctor says "that's a stethoscope," and he says "what's THAT?" and he says "that's a tongue depressor," and he says "WHAT'S THAT!?" and the doc says "that's a cattle prod," and he faints. That used to make me die laughing evey time I read it; whenever I was sad and crying, I would pull out the book and read it and it would make me laugh, no matter what. I knew it would wear off eventually, and eventually it did, but I have such gratitude for that strip, getting me through the tough times.

2. Except for the bad grades and the breaking of expensive things, I hope that if I ever have kids, they're just like Calvin.

    Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.
