December 10, 1996 – Tuesday – 3:30 p.m.

I awoke this morning with absolutely nothing to do.  That hasn’t happened in a long time. I watched Sense and Sensibility.  I’ve seen that movie three times and I never cried, I just got choked up.  But this morning, I bawled my eyes out.  It was exactly what I needed.  It’s like every emotion that I bottled up from the past semester was released.

After juries last night, Timothy and I went to Sharon’s house.  They had a little Christmas party.  We all received gifts.  They are the greatest family.  So much loves pours out of the house into the lives of others.

We went to Boone this morning and I tried to look up Ryan, but she wasn’t in her room again.

I’m on duty tonight, and then I will leave in the morning.

We will do this again.
