HELLO AGAIN!!!!! Can you believe it?!?! Yet another week has flown right by! And I am currently jumping in my pants because Mom and Grandma are starting their journey to see me TOMORROW!!! I'm sorry to be writing yet another boring blog post, but I have to keep up the tradition until I get back home. This is probably going to be a short one though...
This week has been fairly full with finishing up papers (a HUGE research paper that is finally finished - whew!) and assignments and preparing for finals. And I have been having quite a hard time getting to sleep at night because I am so excited to see Mom and Grandma and then go home two weeks from today! I've been busy planning how to see all of the siblings for Christmas this year, and it looks like it's going to work out! We are all going to get to be together at once, which should be a huge blessing. I'm feeling pretty on top of it too, because I have all of my gifts out of the way! I could not be more excited or thankful that we all get to be together just a few days after I get home :] This past weekend was pretty boring except for the fact that I finally got to see a soccer match! A group of us went to a Fiorentina game which they ended up winning - it was such a fun last weekend together. After this Thursday, we are all parting ways, and it's really quite sad! My roommate also taught me how to make a darn-good apple pie! Which was really fun for me - and boy was it TASTY! I can't wait to return home and eat lots of BAD AMERICAN FOOD and no more Italian for a good long while!
Oh, yes! The song of the week! Christmas Lights by Coldplay - brand-spankin' new! All of you know that I am madly in love with Coldplay which is a huge part of why this is the song of the week. It's a pretty sad song, but I'm particularly caught up with the chorus : "Those Christmas lights light up the street, down where the sea and city meet. May all your troubles soon be gone, Oh Christmas lights keep shining on." Can't wait to go home and sit by the Christmas tree with the lights, let all my troubles fade away, and be HOME.
I will probably do one more post after I go to PARIS with Mom and Grandma, and probably one last one after I finally return home, just to keep things well rounded. So it's not goodbye yet! Cannot wait to see you family and friends. Want to know what I'm most looking forward to the moment I get home? Let me list them off because I could hardly choose! Getting jumped in the airport by my little brother. A huge hug from Mischa and my daddy. Snuggling with my kitty and my puppy. Sitting by the fire and getting a back massage from Eric (AHEM - ERIC! THAT'S YOUR CUE - YOU STILL OWE ME FROM THIS SUMMER WHEN I GAVE YOU A THOUSAND TINY BRAIDS!). Seeing everyone at the lovely Brigitte Grove's house on a lovely Tuesday evening. SNOW. Fegan Sibling Festivus. Seeing Eric get his ass-print made in the snow during sibling shenanigans. Christmas morning. I could go on forever. Right now, I'm just going to enjoy the time I have left and sit twiddling my thumbs until Mom and Grandma get here! ;)
