well, we made it alive. we had to drop off one of Sis's friends in Charlotte, and we got stuck in traffic for an hour and a half. then it was raining. and on the last leg of the trip (about 2.5 hours) we both got food poisoning and had to pull over at a Harris Teeter and take a bathroom break.
C'est la vie.
or as John says it, Vie la C'est.
or as John accidently says it sometimes, Cie la Vey.
We got to John's house Friday night at about 11:30. Sis and I talked with him and his folks for a little while, and then they went to bed. John and I went upstairs and hung out until 2:30 in the morning, which was so much fun I can't even explain it. It was just so nice to sit and talk face to face (and, okay, he is so warm and soft and is an awesome hugger. and there may have been a kiss or two thrown in there too). we ended the night by watching Family Guy, which is his favorite tv show (in case you don't know what it is, it's so dumb, but it's hilarious.)
next morning John's mom and Sis and I went to Starbucks and got coffee (because she loves to dote on us) and then she showed us some of her really cool Christmas ornaments. then John and I took Sis to a MtG shop where she hung out for a few hours, and then we went downtown to a knitting shop, an antique shop, a tea shop, and a CHOCOLATE BAKERY. omg. he got me this yummy thing that idk what it was, chocolate covered cheesecake with cream and fudge or something. man it was yummy.
then we took Sis to the mall and walked around a little and looked at sweaters and I got really inspired.
then we left. that was the sad part. but Sis drove so I didn't have to.
we're finally back. now we're just chilling at home. I'm eating a microwaved chicken pot pie.
(some things never change)
dad is drawing. Sis and Joe (her guy friend) and Ears are playing magic. Fish is coming down with a cough. Mom is watching Holiday Inn upstairs.
And I am on my period exactly when I'm supposed to be. The birth control worked. I also didn't have ANY mood crashes this month, thanks to the anxiety meds. I have never been so happy to have a period.
Of course it's not exactly comfortable, so I'm not really enjoying myself, but I feel like a functional woman, and that's nice.
the only thing I have to do now is find some jeans that won't fall off. John wants to get me some for Christmas. I might let him. :)
He's coming up soon. in a few days. He'll spend some time here before Christmas, and then stay for the day-before-christmas-eve party, and then go home with his parents. and then the day after Christmas I'm going up there and visiting some family with them.
yay. this is going to be a fun Christmas.
I'M DONE WITH SCHOOL FOR THE SEMESTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOSH I AM SO HAPPY.
that is all.
