Also, I didn’t buy mellowcreme pumpkins at the grocery store today because I try to wait until October to buy/eat/gorge candy corn.

But I really wanted those pumpkins. I’m still thinking about those pumpkins.

I’m not a keeper of things. All my childhood toys and clothes? Donated and/or sold in yard sales. I just am not very sentimental about physical mementos, I guess. So, it is a surprise to me how painful it is to lose this box of diaries to Hurricane Florence.

My mom and I did our best to save them but even after drying out in the sun for 3 days, they were ruined. Pages sticking together, ink running, and above all, a horrible reek from the floodwaters. The smell, guys. I can’t explain how awful it is. Earlier today, I trashed all of them.

And it really hurt. I’m kind of taken back by just how sad I am about it. Somehow, despite everything, I managed to save this one box of memories and one storm later, they are gone. I feel like I lost a part of myself that I can never get back.

In the dark they are careful of each other, as if they know they are fragile, as if they know they can break.

My Inbox/Outbox photo for the week! I finished Court of Shadows by @lil_wokling and Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill last night, and since Wildcard came out this week, I decided to start reading my ARC that I won on Goodreads! What are you guys reading this weekend? Tell me below!

This cat climbed into the couch and didn’t come out again for 24 hours. I thought she somehow got outside and spent the day wandering the backyard, calling for her. Also, I cried. A lot. Thanks, Fiona.
