After a much needed break for Thanksgiving, I find myself once more in the evil clutches of nursing school. But not for long. Our last day of class was yesterday (and there was much rejoicing.) So now I'm looking forward to a test tomorrow and finals all next week. Did I say "looking forward to?" I meant "dreading with every ounce of my being." Sad day.
Thanksgiving break was ideal. I spent an entire week not in Abilene, which in itself is a cause for celebration. It was good to be home for a few days. Spending time with the familia is always nice. Katie got married on Saturday. What a deal. Her wedding was so pretty, although slightly chilly. Note to self: no outdoor weddings in November. I'm still slightly weirded out by the number of people I know who are getting married. When did everyone grow up? And why did I get left behind? But really, I'm perfectly ok with not reaching that stage of growing up for quite some time.
I spent Saturday to Tuesday in the Woodlands with Ryan. It was ideal. I think it's kind of cool that we went from 8 days of not seeing each other at all to 3 days of seeing each other 24/7 like it was nothing. It was really fun for me to see him in a different environment. And I also got to know his parents better, which is a good thing. We had a lot of fun and some really good conversations. Hooray for another milestone in the relationship. Hopefully he can come to my house in Arlington for a few days over Christmas, and we'll see if he still wants to date me after that.
I'm glad that it's finally getting cold outside. It makes it seem more like it's almost time for Christmas, which I can officially be excited about now that Thanksgiving is over. Yay! And my birthday is in only 19 days, so that's exciting as well. December is a good month.
