01:24 pm - Here I am again!
...making a random I'm-back-from-my-trip post. :-)

I had a really good time with my family. How can I tell? Because I was very very homesick for the first couple of days back down here. *sigh* I particularly miss the littlest girl, my mom, and my dad (who is so cool). But there was much Christmasy fun while I was there, including good food, presents (yay for Christmas music, Muppet Christmas Carol soundtrack, and clothes shopping on my mom's budget not mine), and driving around town to see all the Christmas lights.

Don't think it ever got above 35 degrees Farenheit, though. Coooolllldddd. Most nights it was about 10 below freezing, most days it hovered right around freezing and was quite foggy (odd for my hometown in winter, actually). Coming back to 70s weather in LA was bizarre.

I also saw a lot of old friends this time around. I think I needed that, and I think they enjoyed it, but still every time I go back I realize why I can't live in my hometown. I've never really fit there. Not that I fit in LA, either (lol), but I fit a bit better here, I think--or at least I know I have a calling here. "A stranger in a strange land...."

And Christmas is coming. I hope it's a good one; I feel the need for some serious joy right about now. Lord Jesus...?



My aunt's brother died a couple of days ago of drug overdose. She and my uncle are really awesome Christian people (she's the one who was miraculously healed last year), but her family is a mess. This is going to be really hard on her, and that means it'll be hard on her daughters who just came back from college for Christmas.

I hope I can help somehow, I'm just not sure how to go about it.

Current Mood: okayokay

Sounds like a good family Christmas time! Any new pictures of the littlest Perkins (and the others too)?

Oh speaking of, I had this weird moment when watching Narnia. When they first showed little Lucy, she totally looked like a Perkins girl to me. That amused me. :)

10 below freezing? Brrrr. It got down to 3 below freezing a few days ago but when the rain came back the temps went up a bit too.

What kinda new clothes didja get? I never got cool stuff from Hot Topic. Gonna have to go get a few things when I get to L.A. It'll be cheaper that way anyway since NO shipping. :p Just hope I can find what I want in town!!

Oh man, that is really awful. I'll definitely pray for your Aunt and family.

I hope so. I must kinda be dreading this, because I could have called them yesterday evening and didn't. And should have. I just forgot. I'll call them tonight.

Wow! After a bit of a drought, you're finally beginning the year of The Shiny One, Jonas Quinn. :-)

Let me second the joy that is Jonas. He kinda got shafted, being Daniel's replacement and all, but he's so darn cute!

You know what? In spite of my Meridian-era Jonas love, I totally forgot he was in season six till I looked at the menu on the first DVD. *facepalm*

My original caption for it was "Vir Want Hug!" but I think this works better. :)
