Ladies and gentleman, once again I welcome you to my blog. Last week, as we all know, was Thanksgiving. It's been a long year and I'm sure we've all got a lot to be thankful for; I know I do! I won't go into those details as most of them are personal but I will tell you about my break. I was unable to go back home to New Hampshire for this break. Instead I went to my aunt's house in Garrett to spend the holiday with her and the rest of the family. We went to Kendallville to eat at my uncle's house and spend Thanksgiving day there. Of course the food was amazing but that was second to the fact that I finally got to spend time with my family. I haven't been able to go up and see them nearly as much as I did last year because of basketball and the fact that I don't have my car this semester. It has been hard not seeing them I can't lie. We had the usual food: turkey, stuffing, corn, sweet potato casserole, rolls, and, my favorite, apple pie!
I ate enough food to feel probably my entire family... twice. As I'm sure they will agree, when it comes time for the holidays, I will eat like there is no tomorrow and my life depended on finishing everything in the kitchen. With so much good food around me, how can I resist though? I don't know if there is a bad cook in my family. I know my parents, aunts, uncles, and my siblings have all had some of the best teachers around.
Over break I ran a couple times to total about 10 miles. I don't know if it ever got above 35 degrees over break. I was FREEZING by the end!
In just over two weeks I will be going home for winter break. I haven't been home in four months. As one of the other bloggers, Aide, can attest, being away from home for so long really gets to you emotionally. I know that we are both looking forward to going home and spending time with our families and get away for a little while. While I'm home I'll be spending a lot of time with friends and family catching up and just goofing around. I'm hoping to hit the ice and go skating a few times, watch some movies, play basketball and lift, and of course spend time with my family whom I haven’t seen in over 4 months.
For now, that is all. I do hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!
