That's why holly didn't used to do those things.
Now holly does those things. Because she is looking FORWARD to things beyond a week from now. ..
something she couldn't do before.
And now... now it seems like that's all she does.
Becuase she is making plans. Big plans for her future.
And a future is something she never realized she would have.
And now it's something she wants.
house and marriage and kids and cars and mortage payments and potty training and ... all that stuff.
That alien stuff that always belonged to other people that's now here, in her head and screaming so loud that it routinely makes her cry, thinking about how much she wants it.
And she'll stop talking in third person now.
