Journey to Miss Havisham's

We were so blessed this week during the storm. My in laws house had power, and since they live in CA, we were able to save our food and stay there the last few days. It was a pretty strange experience though.

When we first got married we lived in that house and through some poor choices and things out of our control we lived there both with and without J's parents for a little over a year. It was a pretty difficult time. There where good times also of course, but going back there brought a lot back. There is something so sad about that house, there always has been. Now it was like stepping into a home that people had simply walked away from. This would be in part because my brother in law lived there until last month and he seemed to have just packed his clothes, his giant TV and left. There was old food in the fridge, moldy bread on the counter, a bag of candy abandoned on the coffee table. I was reminded of I Am Legend or any other post-apocalyptic film. (The zombie like person I saw only added to the image)

Emily and my parents came over Monday night for hanging out and movie watching. I'm so glad they did. J had plans to go to Indiana that night and I was creeped out being alone in that house. We had lots of fun and I got the chance to see Emily's favorite movie, Sliding Doors, which I loved. Great pick Emily!

All in all I was pretty lucky this week and I know that, but I am SO glad to be home.
