(unlikely dreams)

So... I'm home. The snowflakes are on the windows, the lights are on the house, the tree is erected and decorated, and we have less than 48 hours to go before the big day. It hasn't exactly been a typical Christmas - Mom has been stressed out about my grandparents, Dad has been working three jobs (Comcast, Jaguars football, and Gator basketball), and Catie has been racking up hours at Starbucks to try to earn some Christmas cash - so the tree decoration was something of a three-day work in progress, and the first night we had to all sit down together as a family and eat dinner and watch a movie (A Christmas Story) was last night. But hey, whatever. I've finished all my shopping (just have a little work still left to do on Dad's present), gotten my car serviced, gotten my hair cut, picked back up with my Jacksonville swim team, gotten back to running, and seen my first Gator basketball game (Wednesday night), which was awesome.

Dad and I are actually headed to Gainesville again momentarily, because they play Ohio State at 4pm today. It should be a great game, plus my friend Anna is going to be in town, and I'm really excited to see her. I reconnected with my high school friend Elise yesterday, but it was just weird and awkward - we had nothing to say to each other, which is a real shame after being such good friends for so long - seven or eight years. I hope we can get past that.

I'll write more later, but at the moment, I'm about to make Dad late, and since I'm the 'fifth wheel' in this little party, that's the last thing I want to do.

Hope everyone's having a great break and holiday!

Happy New Year!!!!
Sounds like you're having fun.
Wish you were here.
Lillianna got an ipod for Christmas and now I have to go to the apple store with her gift card and figure out how to get music....lol.

When I told Lil I wasn't sure where to go she gave me a look and said,"Mom! It's the store where we went with Jess. Don't you remember???" Uhm...ya...ok...sure.
