The one where I'm triumphant

Last night I had to venture down to the basement to find the next book in the series that I'm reading (Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, for those who care). I embarked with the flashlight so I could look through the stacks. Why the flashlight? Weeeeeel, I'll tell ye...

After living for the past two years with all our books still packed in boxes in the basement, Husband finally started the bookshelves. He's got two sections done, and they're beautiful. He filled them up too, almost unpacking all the books, but there's still about half a dozen that are still packed up. (We likey our books...)

Anyway, he's got the existing shelves covered with tarps so he won't get sawdust all over the books that are in them. Which means, if I want to find a book I have to dive under the tarps with the flashlight. Which I did last night. Only the book I was looking for wasn't there.

After literally digging through the six remaining boxes of books, I found the one I was looking for in the last box...in plain sight. Yeah, well...but! I also found my copy of North and South! I raced back upstairs with my book and crowed to Husband:

"I found North and South! Now I can re-read the trilogy this summer!"

He gave me the same expression you probably have on your face right now: he rolled his eyes...but grinned at me just the same.

Now, want to hear a humiliating story about me?

I loved "North and South". I still kick myself for not buying the video series when a video store was going out of business. The set was missing one video. But I still should have purchased it.

Junebee, you can come up to OH and have a "North and South - a - thon" with me. There's something like 12 hours of video there...but hey, it's worth it to see Patrick Swayze say "Be deliberate."
