A Life in the Day...or is it the other way around??

Boy, it's been an off day. A good one, just off.

Stayed the night with Emily and Ison, stayed up til midnight gabbing with my prego sister, took FOREVER to fall asleep, and then was woken up 5 1/2 hours later by the cats and an hour or so after that by the sister. Which means the rest of the day was off. Not complaining, I would rather be semi-awake and get to actually see, talk, visit, enjoy my sister in all her pregnant glory than not since I only get to see her off and on for a week before I head back up to Utah. I miss her terribly. Whether she or I thinks so or not, we are each others best friends (minus of course her husband on her end). She and I went through a lot together and we still love each other, so that counts as best friends. :)

We went shopping, ate the wonderfulness that is Dion's, went shopping again, and despite the activity and the food I felt like I was going to fall asleep on my feet. I felt bad, I think it was quite obvious how off I was.

Came home, helped Dad move some very large boards and thought for the umpteenth time how they should've had a boy for Dad's sake, and went and saw Tangled for the third time, this time with my Mommy. It was her first time, and my first time watching it in 3D. It was great, although I really think they could've done a better job with the 3D during the lantern scene. My Mom of course loved it. :)

I begged my Mom to not wake me up in the morning. I hope the parents don't, I need the sleep in a bad way. I want to be all there, not part there when with my family, and sleep is becoming more and more essential as time marches right across my face. BUT I would rather be half-awake and be with my parents than sleep through the whole hopefully I fall asleep right away and wake up after 8 hours and all will be well!

Anyways. Merry 27th of December all. Hope your day was 'on' and not 'off'. :) Much love to you and yours!

I'm home. It's a good place to be, at least for a short while. It's the only place I can really call 'home'. I am such a transient, that no other place has ever really become a home. Plus, it's hard to call a place 'home' when it's not full of family love. Don't get me wrong, many of my roommates have been wonderful, and I love them dearly, but they aren't my family. One that I can be with forever.

Christmas was very nice this year. Got in Christmas Eve, took a nice long shower in MY bathroom, and we all went down to Old Town,. Nearly took off the head of the guy who claimed my parking spot but I decided to be Christian and let him have it...I ended up getting a better parking spot anyways. :) Had hot cocoa, got Christmas Tamales, and it was warm enough outside to actually sit down on the quad and talk. That was probably the best part.

Went over to Emily and Ison's Christmas day, opened presents, put together a puzzle and had prime rib with mashed potatoes, squash and salad. Ended it all with ice cream. It was a very nice and relaxed day, which is how it should be. We enjoyed visiting with each other and I monopolized Emily's baby bump for a while. I think I even felt the baby move in there, which was a wonderful highlight. We all went to bed a little early since we stayed up half the night.

Got some nice gifts, one of which is a new digital camera which I am very happy about. I am going to buy a case and a small tripod for it so that I can use it well and use it for a while. :)

So grateful that the weather dealt a nice hand for me, and it looks like I will be going back up to Utah in nice weather as well. Looking forward to seeing all my family on my Mom's side this week.

I've been brought near to tears a number of times while here....Sometimes it was because I was happy, sometimes it was because I realized how lonely I am, sometimes I think it was me being retarded and hormonal. :) It's been good though. Recharging my batteries. :)

Hope everyone had a successful and lovely Christmas. It's been a pretty good one so far. :) Much love to all of you!

I will try... make up for the complete lack of posts on here over Christmas, as I will be staying at my parents who actually have wireless internet access at home...unlike me who has yet to get that set up. I keep saying I need to do it, and it just never happens.

What's up? Not much. Been to see Tangled twice (LOVED IT both times). Roommate is deathly ill with bronchitis. Out of money, but what's new in that department?

Just the same old same old.

Love all of you. SO excited to see a number of you soon!!! Best part of the holidays is getting to see my family and friends.  And eats lots of AMAZING food. :) Woot!
