today, i skipped my dentist appointment. i was supposed to be in tacoma by 11:00am, but instead, i caught up on sleep and didn't leave eugene until about 11:30 after running some errands. my brother's friend, daren, made us dinner. he barbecued hamburgers. i thought they were joking, it was weird. i've been cleaning out my bedroom at my mom's house. its quite the process, and i don't think it will ever be complete. but i've made a good start and have a box or two of treasures/junk to bring back to eugene with me. the itinerary for the rest of the weekend includes a birthday party for my cousin in seattle and an excursion to mars hill church with benjamin.
