It's a funny thing.

I've never thought of myself as a very religious person. Especially when compared to some of my family and friends who go to church at least 4 times a week. I was at church this past Sunday, and this strange feeling came over me. I don't know how to explain this feeling, but all I know is that I felt...almost lighter. Nothing significant happened during this time. I didn't have any life-long revelations, no religious realizations-nothing. But that feeling of 'lightness'-as if a giant weight was lifted off of my shoulders-was something I never felt before. I like it.
I think I'll be going to church more often.

I had lunch this past Monday with Mrs. Murphy. It was the most fun I've had in a long time. She truly is a special person. I visited her, Mrs. Henry and Mrs. Link twice since I've been off for break, and they've already asked me to come back the week of Jan 5. I love going to visit. My mom always asks me if it's weird visiting old teachers. I would probably think it'd be awkward if I were in the same position. But no. Its FAR from awkward.

Christmas is coming up. It proves to be hectic. But, we've started everything early. The decorations are already up-besides Grandmas...we're going to do hers this Friday night. My Aunt and Uncle are coming up Friday to spend the night with my Grandma, and they asked us to come over for dinner with them. I'm excited. I may be a glutton for punishment, but I love seeing my family...especially these two. After that, Saturday morning my dad and I are going up north to celebrate Christmas with his side of the family. I think we'll be coming home Monday night or Tuesday...depending on when my dad wants to come home. He always seems to want to stay longer. After this, we have Christmas Eve with my Grandma, my mom's sister and her family. We always go to church, have dinner (most likely Chinese) and open our presents. Then I'll finally get my new iPod! I can't WAIT to get that sucker booted up! After that, we head to Ohio on Christmas day. See everybody on my mom's side of the family, which totals well over 35. I might possibly be spending the night so I can stay and hang out with my cousins that I never get to see. After this, I have a few days to recoup, then LACEY is coming. I'm so excited. We're going to to do so many fun things and take tons of pictures...and just have so much fun. Then after that, visiting back at child care and possibly Atlanta? I hope so.

I wish everybody a happy and safe holiday season! Enjoy the time to relax!
