It's Sunday morning and I am playing hookey from church. After I go have brunch with my dad and grandparents, I'll be taking down my Christmas tree. Yesterday was our family party out at my aunt's house. I love playing with the kids, but other than that I don't really talk to anyone, even more so because this year my dad wasn't even there so I was the only person without an immediate family member there. So it felt like I was crashing in on a family celebration I wasn't really a part of.

I did finally get something I've been waiting for. When my cousin's got married, their 1st Christmas my grandparents bought them nativity sets. A few years ago I told my granny I didn't have a set because I hadn't gotten married in order to get mine. When they were at my place on Christmas it came up again. So Friday, my dad took them to the store and they bought me and my sister nativities. It was a wonderful surprise. The pieces are wearing actually pieces of cloth, which make it quite unique.
Now that Christmas is finally over, it's time to start looking forward to the new year. Of course, I'm going to keep training at gym. I am getting very close to my goal. In a couple weeks I am going to the theater again to see Legally Blonde. In the spring, I want to go visit a friend in Myrtle Beach. This will serve two purposes. First of course to see my friend but also to be in S. Carolina for the first time. I would also really like to get back to Africa sometime in 2009.
The future begins now...
