I went to my parents' house yesterday with Chelsea. I figured since I'm meeting her entire family today, I should start introducing her to mine. It's only fair, right?
It went fairly okay and I survived. That's about all I'll say about the visit itself. I'm still processing, and the rest may stay internal. That's just how I roll sometimes.
While in Kanab, my parents were willing to give me some books. I know, I really needed more, right? I already have a rough time every time I move just with what I have. However, my dad was born in 1933, and he's been acquiring books for quite some time.
Several of the books hadn't been moved in a very, very long time. The dust was thick as any I've seen in a long time.
So what books did I bring home? Here they are, in no particular order:
- Amy Vanderbilt's Etiquette: The Guide to Gracious Living. I know. Hilarious, right?
- The Complete Stories and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe
- Poems of Byron, Keats and Shelley, Selected and Edited by Elliott Coleman
- Favorite Poems of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

- Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
