Thanksgiving Break

12.09.2007The much needed Thanksgiving Break came and passed, but not without some relaxing time, great food, and time with family and friends.

I flew home early Thanksgiving Day because I had to stay for the basketball game the previous night, which we won. Although my flight was only an hour and a half, it seemed to go by slowly. I was eager to be home with my family, plus being unable to sleep no more than five minutes and waking up to find we were still high above in the air was discouraging.

At last, we landed in Atlanta. Although it was raining, I was happy to be back home. My dad, brother, and sister came to pick me up from the airport, and from there, we went home to enjoy the first of two Thanksgiving meals that day. It was the first time I had home-cooked meal since going home with Adam for fall break. Turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, gravy, stuffing. etc, not to forget the chocolate cream pie, were amazing.

After spending some time at my dad's house, we went over to my mom's house, and entered to the smell of my second dinner. It was a great day. My grandfather came for Thanksgiving, as well as my Uncle Joe. After stuffing myself a second time, followed by a few pieces of pumpkin and chocolate pecan pie, I rolled my way over to the couch, where me, my brother, sister, and my moms boyfriend Terry battled it out on guitar hero 3. Later on, my aunt and a few of my cousins came over to hangout and catch up which is always nice.

The rest of break was busy, but enjoyable. I went bowling with my dad, brother, and sister, and coincedently, went again with my friends Saturday night. Overall, it was fantastic going back home. It had been two months since I had been home, and it felt great. Although I did not get a lot of sleep, I was able to see and spend time with family and friends, which is all that matters.

Coming back was somewhat sad, but at the same time, it felt nice to be back around everybody from UD. Only 3 weeks until I go home for Christmas Break. I cannot wait to go. Being home for the holidays, surrounded by family, friends, good food, and a great atmosphere, it what I am looking forward to.

Until then, the remainder of the semester with the dreaded finals await me. Sure its going to be hard, but it will all be worth it when I can relax and be around the people I love.


God Bless!
