Well I am so extremely excited because Josh and I get to go home to California to visit my family for Thanksgiving! It's going to be so much fun because my entire family will be there!! Chris just got back from his mission almost a month ago and so once again our whole family will be together. The last time it was all of us, was at my wedding 3 years ago! So, needless to say, I'm very excited for this weekend. I'm sad it's only for 4 days, but I'll take any time I can get! We're flying down tomorrow night and there is a lot that still needs to be done! 1. laundry 2. pack 3. clean the house (I hate coming home from a trip to a dirty house) ... I know that is only 3 things, but still, after getting home from work, and eating dinner, all of this needs to get done. And I don't really ever get anxiety, but one thing that makes me totally anxious is the feeling that I forgot to pack something. I know this is stupid because ususally whatever I forget I can just buy, but it still makes me go crazy because I always have the feeling that I'm forgetting something. So about 5 years ago I made a "Things to Pack" list that I've added to and subtracted from over the years, and let me just tell you, it's saved as a word document and gets pulled up everytime I'm going somewhere. It makes my anxiety go down just a little bit.
Also, I absolutely love the holidays and it'll be so sad to come home after Thanksgiving, but we always have Christmas to look forward to and luckily we get to go visit Josh's family for Christmas!! I absolutely love my in laws and can not even begin to tell you how lucky I was to marry into the family. I love every one of them and we have such a great time together.
Well, I'll be sure to take some pictures of the family and post when we return. As for now... HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!!
Let's get started!
